The other night as part of a floor activity for my dorm I went with my JA (junior advisor) and some dorm mates to a Maineiacs game. The Maineiacs are a minor league hockey team here in Lewiston. They play in a the QMJHL, a league based in Quebec, and are the only U.S. team in the league. The atmosphere at the game was awesome. Despite the fact the game was delayed an hour and that it was a Wednesday night the arena was pretty packed. A woman sang both the Canadian and U.S. national anthems  and the Canadian anthem was sung partly in French & partly in English. The fans were passionate and many were decked out in Maineiacs jerseys, hats, and t-shirts. The game itself was also great. The Maineiacs beat the Drummondville Voltigeurs 8-3 and there were plenty of big hits and scuffles. It was nice to take a study break, get off campus for a little while and get a taste of Lewiston’s culture. Check out the Maineiacs site to learn about the team:
