This might take off, it might not, but either way I think there is no doubt that Division III certainly serves up some interesting oddities and tidbits. As a result, there are numerous locales and experiences we never would have realized we were not fans of Division III hockey.

In light of such...what sort of things are out there that serve as a constant reminder of your DIII fanship? I probably have 100 of these, but here's one from this morning:


: At a meeting this morning on business efficiencies, imagine my excitement upon learning that a movie on the efficiencies of making toast was produced by UMass-Boston. I spent the rest of the meeting pondering the role of the MASCAC. Go Beacons.

: You know nine different ways to get into the Cornerstone Community Center for free, and thus know where the bathrooms are that never have a line.

You get to the rink an extra 15-20 minutes early so that you can chat up the ushers... this way they won't throw you out later in the evening.

You've had an opposing player send his girlfriend over to tell you that you are the most annoying person in the world, only to smile, shake her hand, and say thank you :)

You've watched a college hockey game in an outdoor rink.

You eagerly obsess over a guys stats in the OPJHL and then hope he's one of the 10% that actually turn into a good D-III player.

You think the NCAA's Pool bid sytsem sucks.

You know who Matt Webb is.:)

Perhaps you are confusing that Beacon of upsets with the pillagers from the North Shore, Salem State College?

Yes. No. The mention of UMB alone dovetailed into a pondrance of the MASCAC, even though they aren't in the league. It was the mere mention of "UMass" that sent my mind into overload.


: You know that UMB is not in the MASCAC

Back on topic...

(a) You ponder the ways the MASCAC can steal the Pool B bid and thank the heavens for Morrisville!

(b) You hope MASCAC-TV is working this year to save on plane flights.

I could not imagine the C-YA chant in a D-III arena.

Michigan is in a league of their own with that.

Oswego just adds on the female dog version in their C-YA chant.

The AD is not too fond of it either.:)

You know the mile markers on NYS 104 where you've hit deer ... and survived.

You've seen a player resuscitated on the ice at the Stafford.

You've seen Leb Valley play at their home.

You attended the first neutral site FF in Minnesota during the 20th century.

You've had the skin on your backside frozen to the metal bleachers in Geneva.

You've been at a Buff State game during the national anthem when the bodies on the ice exceed those in the stands, penalty boxes, press box, ticket booth, etc
