USCHO.com: Success of Frozen Fenway shows outdoor games have a place in college hockey

Dave Hendrickson revisits last Saturday's Frozen Fenway 2012 win over Vermont with some extended quotes and observations from the games.

Toot and Fenway

While Cahoon has already commented in the preceding section on the event, he holds a special place among hockey people and Fenway Park. He's thrown out a first pitch, coached UMass to Saturday's overtime win, and ...

... well, let's let him tell it.

"I know there are 70,000 people that have said they were at Ted Williams' last game when he hit a home run, but I actually was," Cahoon said. "I was 11 years old and my dad brought me in. There might have been 14,000 people there because I know it was half empty.

"I can remember when Ted Williams hit [the home run], my dad jumping out of his seat, [yelling], 'He did it! He did it!'

"I love this park. I love this city. It's exciting for the team first and foremost and for the school, but on a personal level it's very exciting."

When asked once more about his Fenway notoriety, Cahoon turned humorous.

"It'll be something they put on my gravestone, I suppose," he said. "But I'd rather stay alive and not have that written real soon."
