    Your team, or nemesis, in short words

    Can we hockey fans use the English Language also?

    Describe your team, or nemesis, in short words of rhyme, limerick, or a common saying… I’ll start with UNH, where I have season tickets.


    UNH
    Always the Bridesmaid
    Never the Bride
    The reason for that
    Theses boards can’t decide
    Is it Umile
    or is it Borek
    But as for me
    I just want to see them check

    Does it say "Always lose to UNH in the NCAAs"?

    Oh, it's about your nemesis, not your team.

    There once were some fanboys from BU
    About hockey most don't have a clue
    Dreams of going to school on Comm Ave
    Admittance from BC they did not have
    How does their coach survive? His liver's brand new.

    Honestly, not one of your best efforts. I was expecting better.

    I don't see why not. It certainly displays good use of the English language.

    I know, did it quickly... a little busy here lately.

    Truth be told, you guys have been pretty good lately.

    Chestnut Hill University.

    Since, technically speaking, BC is neither in Boston nor is a college.

    I'm up for gallows humor:

    There once was a team from Houghton
    Who thought scoring goals was verboten
    They sucked without pretense
    And as for defense?
    'Twas worse than watching the "Axe Men"

    If it's not in Boston, why was the Globe writer crying about BC not giving money to the City of Boston???

    Whenever i think of the gophers
    I rememeber the smell of my loafers
    They're from the cities
    and play like ninnies

    Jesus H Christ, do we need to go over this again. Parts of BC ARE in Boston. Including Conte Forum, Alumni Stadium, and the almost all of the rest of lower campus.

    Aren't parts of BU in Brookline?
