Thanksgiving with the Badgers!

After an early 6 a.m. departure, the Badger women's hockey team landed in Providence a little before 9:30 a.m. ET. The team headed straight to Schneider Arena to unload the bus (props to Jim Lamboley for making the two-day drive to meet us here), and get ready for practice. As per usual, the team ended practice with the showdown (after Thursday practice the team participates in a shootout and the winner picks someone to sing in front of the team for pregame meal the next day). For the second week in a row, Stefanie McKeough won the shootout. See who McKeough chose to sing in the Badgers Thanksgiving video.

After the early practice we headed to our hotel which is a quick 10-15 minutes away. The team had some time to relax and check out the beautiful hotel we are staying at, I know I did! Then everyone joined together for a fabulous Thanksgiving meal that included all the essentials to make Turkey Day complete!

Following the meal, I had a chance to pull some Badgers aside and ask them what they were thankful for, which can all be seen in the video link above. After the meal, there was an optional excursion to Federal Hill. But after such a big meal, I am going to have to opt for a nap! So happy holidays and good night!
