Harvard Hockey  
So, jiggliusceasar and I went to the Harvard-BU Hockey game. The Crimson won 5 to 2, scoring two points each in the first two periods and one point in the last period. The BU Terriers tried really hard, but were stopped repeatedly from scoring. This led to a few observations:

  • Hockey players have a lot of padding - most of them look like they were wearing diapers. Large diapers. Really large diapers.

  • Referees must get bored with calling penalties. They would call a few penalties at the beginning of each period, and then they would stop. It would take a lot of hard work by the teams to get a penalty after that.

  • The Harvard Band - They were, in a word, scary. They played the A Team theme, the Rocky theme, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle theme, Video Killed the Radio Star, etc. They weren't terribly good either.

  • Harvard Fans. If I was a Harvard Hockey player, I would be ashamed to admit to them. They were crude. They're idea of appropriate team chants were spelling power (Power Play), and saying things like bull shit. Dumb ass.

Now we're home and jigglius is playing Final Fantasy X-2. He is currently doing Operation: Monkey!

"Love is in the air! Pair up each monkey with its soul mate! If making monkeys happy isn't reason enough, who knows! There just may be something in it for you, too.

Hint: pay close attention to their names"

Listening to: Final Fantasy background music

I guess Harvard has gotten meaner since Tom Lehrer wrote "Fight fiercely, Harvard!" ("Won't it be peachy if we win the game?")

Well, it is also possible that this is simply a phenomenon associated with the hockey team.

(I wish the marching band had played Fight Fiercely, Harvard.)
