Does anyone know where I can find a link to the infamous "congradulations" photo. USCHO had one up for the longest time but I couldn't find it on a quick scan. I was hoping maybe Ed, Chris, Norm, or Webb might have stashed away that treasure for a rainy day.

Middlebury has their national championship team photo page on their website but the banner is hidden behind the guys' heads and you can just barely make out the "D' mistake.

Apparently I tried to be too specific. I put in Middlebury 2004 men's hockey and such.

Gracias.

Not necessarily a "mistake." Can you not see a play on words for the graduating class?
On the other hand, it could simply have been a mistake, but Middlebury haters were very quick to push that narrative immediately after the photo was snapped.

So why did it quickly get taken down off the Middlebury website and the photo they used for the Middlebury wall of champions has the picture taken so that the banner isn't showing?

BTW- The intent was not to re-hash this subject. I was simply trying to show a co-worker the sign.

This is the most intriguing post (http://board.uscho.com/showthread.php?66845-Sources-Middlebury-will-host-Q-Final-if-it-beats-Fredonia&p=3036845&viewfull=1#post3036845) - to me - on the subject (also noting the author):


Then why did Middlebury College ask USCHO to alter a news photo to change that (which we won't do), and why did the school crudely change the photo on its web site?

Just sayin'. ;)

That absolutely happened norm -- Middlebury did request USCHO to alter the photo. We refused. Middlebury brass was p*ss*d off at us.

The fact of the matter is, willberr22, that banner made Middlebury look like idiots. No "we did it on purpose" excuse can ever overcome that...

It`s odd that the photographer did not pick it up. It was staring him in the face. Right W? As to the sign not mattering, overall that is true. That being said, when one of America`s supposedly elite academic institutions drops the spellimg bee ball in such a public fashion I am sure there was very few amongst us that did not chortle. It is the American way...as in Glenn Healy`s song Dirty Laundry..."Kick em when they`re up...kick em when they`re down"

Glenn Healy, Don Henley - Congradulations, Congratulations.......its all the same. It's fun to bust balls.

The most amusing part was the spin control ... If they had just laughed at themselves, maybe it would have played better. The way they spun it and tried to deny everything made them look more arrogant. I've always found that the best action to take when you screw up is to say "hey I screwed up"
