This should sound good

This is making its way through college hockey tonight, including over on our message board, but I thought it deserved to be mentioned here.

The D.C. Sports Bog, a production of the Washington Post’s Web site, is reporting that George Mason’s pep band, known as the Green Machine, will be standing in for the Bemidji State band at the Frozen Four.

We occasionally make jokes about the “tournament atmosphere” that the committee is supposed to keep in mind when it assigns teams to regionals, but this is an actual example of how a small move can help create that effect.

I, for one, am interested to see Doc Nix and his band in action this weekend.
