During the 1980 Olympics the Miracle on Ice happened in Lake Placid, New York: the United States hockey team defeated the Soviet Union hockey team 4-3. Years later, there was a movie made about this starring Snake Plissken. What are you doing this weekend?
Stu Horvath: Tonight there shall be metal: Pallbearer, Ancient VVisdom and Royal Thunder at Bowery Ballroom. And then there shall be Risk: Legacy. The world will burn.
Chuck Moran: This weekend, I am going to buy some furniture and mount a TV to a wall. I also hope to play some Risk: Legacy with buddies and maybe go for a hike. Good times.
Ian Gonzales: Metal, dentistry and Risk: Legacy. I may try and sneak a hot fish sandwich in there too. We will see.
Don Becker: Jazz, rock, helping a friend move, and celebrating the New York Islanders waiving Rick DiPietro by ending my self-imposed NHL boycott.
Matt Marrone: Taking in some last-minute movies before Oscar night. I won’t fulfill my quest to see every nominee, but I’ll come close enough to have a rooting interest come Sunday.
Ethan Sacks: Will host my own shadow Oscars with The Raid: Redemption and End of Watch vying for Most Awesome Picture award. Trophy is made out of a silver foil-covered G.I. Joe action figure and Don Becker and James Franco will be the hosts.
Ken Lucas: Last weekend, I was happy to be part of “Stu’s Folly”. This weekend I am hoping to convene with the Board Game Club and wrap up Risk:Legacy so we can move on to Stu’s Dinosaur game [Valley of the Lost Dinosaurs! – Editor].
Mark Mariano: Saturday, I’ll be enjoying a birthday party full of hot chocolate and cookies. Sunday, The O>MATICS rock Dingbatz at 1 p.m. in Clifton.
Steve Haske: I don’t know what the weekend holds in store. Maybe I will cook something in my kitchen or study French. Maybe I will sleep a lot and drink a beer. Maybe I will eat a sandwich and do some writing. Who knows!
Chris Dahlen: Taking the kid to an exhibit of samurai armor at the Currier Museum in Manchester. Giving Ni No Kuni one more try before I shelve it in the closet and forget about it. Oh, and shoveling.
Richard Clark: Y’all are going to be so jealous. This Saturday I’m going to DINOSAUR WORLD. A whole world of dinosaurs, y’all. Oh man oh man.
