This helpful video was shared by Deborah Gold, not yet a fan, but clearly a potential asset to the team. Note that at no point is alcohol mentioned as vital to ensuring one's safety on the ice.

How to survive a fall through frozen ice.

Ice fishing in one of the world's coldest cities

This post has been suggested by a couple of fans. From the "tribe" that brought you the polio vaccine, Blazing Saddles, and Facebook - no, our team will not be following the example of these morons. Aleksey Kondratyev photographed ice fishermen in Kazakhstan's capital of Astana. They used plastic bags to shield themselves from the brutal cold.

Feeling optimistic...any carp in that car?

Note to self - do not park your car next to Lake Erie when it's freezing outside.

The temperature hit a record high today! Desperate times (and temperatures) call for desperate measures. Team captain Gary slyly offers honorary team member Congressman Tonko "incentive" - his very own team mascot - to introduce anti-global warming legislation...IMMEDIATELY!

[12/23/15]   New fan alert! Yea Eric! Looking for a groundswell of cool thoughts - best chance of getting the team out on ice this "Winter". Remember, this isn't one of those sports that can be mocked up, like slapping roller skates on skis - these men need ice and lots of it!

Due to record highs temperatures, the team mascots have assembled themselves into a minyan, prepared to recite the prayers for ice. Wish the team luck in finding ice in the Great Northeast - reports of frozen lakes welcomed!
