man that sucks. My Grandparents are from Alpena and I really wanted to check out an IceDiggers game the next time I was there during hockey season... Just like the Brewery that just shut down there, it sucks to see another thing move away.
Small towns like that don't seem to support the local things they have it seems.
I was so bummed when I went there that the brewery was closed, and my relatives were all like "what brewery?" while drinking their beloved corporate piss beer.
