This is awesome: It's no longer SCSU vs Union.

It's now RPI, SCSU, Minnesota, tUMD, MTU, NMU, PC, GVSU (thanks, Monster), UND, Cornell, against... one guy.

I don't see a single Union fan coming to his defense.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Let's not lump me in there. I'm against everyone.


I'll start it up again.

I just read it on my blogreader. Best part = "Go Huskies. I guess."

Skeets, am I going to see you next weekend?

Who was it that made that {PROVICED jersey? Get them on a St, Clooud one immediately

Beer Pong Horn, I think we have a task of you!

And get me one. My Halloween idea may have just changed...

*standing ovation*

I'm really not sure I can do any better than that jersey-wise, but I did take the liberty of improving their logo:

He didn't say what kind of class though.

I teach 2nd graders in a Hebrew School Class even though I don't speak Hebrew. Good deal.

I think teaching 2nd graders aerobics is very noble.

Sorta like your signature? :rolleyes:

You'd think someone from such an elite institution to have a much more subdued offering.

You have a problem with my signature? Is it a little too obnoxious?

Red Cloud, how does it feel to have wasted your time typing up a brief history of Union College?

Hey, it could be just me, but after reading several posts, I'm getting the impression that Red Cloud is anti-Union.

:)

Inferiority complex.

I agree, the history of Union College is indeed a waste of time.

If you think that, why did you spend hours typing it up? Wait, wait. Let me guess...

A BRIEF HISTORY OF UNION HOCKEY
A RED CLOUD PRODUCTION

Part V: Coup de grāce


It doesn’t just go back to 1991. Since 2002, there have been 12 different teams to reach the ECAC’s neutral-site tournament – including both Vermont and Quinnipiac and, yes, even RPI and Brown – but not the Dutchmen. They’re one of only two teams in a “Big Four” conference that has never played in the NCAA tournament (the Alaska Nanooks are the other).

Meanwhile, the RPI obsession rolls on. Much of their fans recent delusions of wild success draw from their recent (regular season) successes against the Engineers, who have been struggling through an historically rare period of bad hockey. This obsession is displayed in their bizarre tradition of throwing oranges on the ice when they score against the Engineers at home. Much to their team’s chagrin, this habit tends to lead to delay of game penalties against the Dutchmen, which are often capitalized on by RPI. This odd ritual led to the strange sight of a Union coach climbing the glass to try and physically attack a student throwing oranges on the ice one year.

Union is the only team in the ECAC with a losing record against every single other team in the league. Tumbling with the big dogs, it’s not even close. The Dutchmen have an all time record of 2-15-2 against current WCHA teams. To be fair to the WCHA, though, both wins came in one weekend against Mankato State in 1996, before the Mavericks were in the league, as did one of the ties, in 1998. Besides the Mavericks, Union has all-time series leads over only two other “Big Four” schools: Ferris State (4-0-0) and Bowling Green (3-1-1). They do have two things in common with the great Minnesota, though – they trail the all-time series with Holy Cross (5-7-1) and RIT (4-12-3).

The Union women’s hockey team, which started playing in Division I in 2003, is continuing the proud tradition of hockey at Union. Their overall record in Division I sits at 21-165-8, their last 7 wins (and 14 total) coming against Sacred Heart.

And so, friends, the Union story continues to be written. Clearly, the prescient words that started the story, “they have no history,” do ring quite true – but the underlying story for why this is still true after almost 35 years is a tale that has to be told to be understood.

Because it only took about 45 minutes?

You set em up, I knock em down fairly easily. We're a team, you and me, even if you don't know it or like it.

Multiple quote button is your friend, or is that concept too challenging for someone from the highly regarded educational institution of Union College?

Nope. You can't say with a straight face that that took you 45 minutes. You don't need to lie to us about having no life. You said you were working on it yesterday and you posted the intro and it's something like 4 or 5 chapters.

I'm laughing at you, not with you, my RPI/Cloud friend. At you.

Yes. As I have other things that I do with my time - which yesterday also included a short road trip - the 45 minutes were spread between yesterday and today.

The chapters were for dramatic flair, and to make sure the whole thing wasn't in one, long, unreadable post. It also maximized the effect, as you are well proving.

How could I have written all of that in only 45 minutes? Easy. I'm a writer. I write for a living.


I'm laughing at you, not with you, my RPI/Cloud friend. At you.
But how can you not be laughing WITH me when I'm laughing at everything you write about me? Thus, we laugh at the same things. For different reason, but like it or not, you laugh with me.

Everyone else here is also laughing, but it's at you. Not with you, at you.
