Dartmouth's at Harvard for a hockey game Friday night. Game time was 7 p.m., but ... not so much, because the Harvard Zamboni pooped out right on the ice. The Dartmouth Hockey Twitter account is delivering a delightfully trollish account of the affair:
Having the Zamboni breakdown and drop snow in the area of the net we have to defend twice? Bold strategy, Harvard. pic.twitter.com/0CvvCO5WaI— Dartmouth Hockey (@Dartmouth_MIH) February 7, 2014
Last year's game was postponed due to snow. Could we have a similar fate this year?! pic.twitter.com/wP3FQrS6hg— Dartmouth Hockey (@Dartmouth_MIH) February 8, 2014
And yes, the best Harvard could do was have players come out to try to push the giant hunk of metal off the ice:
Harvard players now out to push the Zamboni off the ice. Can't even make this stuff up. pic.twitter.com/vnS5dw93EF— Dartmouth Hockey (@Dartmouth_MIH) February 8, 2014
We'll update if this reaches an interesting conclusion. In the meantime, here's another crazy moment in Zamboni history.
