Whats Up Hockey Puck?

I would just to take a moment to talk about how awesome my college is and then I will get back to my normal proceedings. Today I had a new experience which once again reinforces how bloody brilliant college is. I went to my first hockey game. Yes, I will admit it, I was a hockey virgin. I've watched the sport on television during the Olympics but never actually attended a game before (which is slightly odd considering I grew up near one of the best teams on the west coast). Hockey always seemed like it was an interesting sport to watch live and I have to say it didn't disappoint.
I stupidly made one mistake when I went; I didn't wear my school shirt! Honestly, I always believed that people never really wore their teams colors however I was very, very mistaken. The crowd was a sea of orange and brown and then their was me; in grey and blue. All I have to say is, I'm super glad I didn't wear the other schools colors; purple and gold (Yuck! Those were my high school's colors!).
Hockey is in my opinion so much better to watch then Football. I never understood Football. However, with Hockey I actually picked up the game really fast and was soon cheering "YOU SUCK!" to the other team! Okay, so if you haven't noticed already, but my school is a huge Hockey school. So huge that we don't even have a Football team. We are also labeled as a "nerd school" so it doesn't seem like the two should go together but somehow they work. To prove how nerdy of a school we are, our team comes out onto the rank to the tune of the imperial march (the theme song from Star Wars)! How great is that?
So basically, all I am trying to say is.... Hockey is amazing. Also my college is amazing.
P.S. If you were wondering, my team did win. In fact we crushed the other team. So who says nerds can't be athletic too?

  1. My school doesn't have a football team, either! Unfortunately, our sports teams aren't that good... but like many of the nerds here, I really don't care. I've been to a couple hockey games, though, and they're so much fun, no matter who wins!
