    When was this thread ever *not* in the gutter?

    Anyway, I'm not even Catholic. So whatever tenuous connection all that crap was supposed to have to me doesn't even exist. Got anything else?

      I fail to see how making things up is equivalent to a discussion of history.

      I understand that you are one part hippy, two parts hillbilly; but we are scholars, after all. Unless, of course, you have a source for your allegations that BC was involved in the catholic church sex scandal.

      anyway, i'm not one for re-writing history. so, sorry UVM - you made your bed, now you have to lie in it. maybe if your hockey team gave us some other history to talk about, like maybe winning.. something.. anything; we wouldnt have to dwell on their only historically significant event. but we probably still would.

      I'm not catholic either, and I'm guessing there are no catholics in the catamount fanbase either, because his "joke" (quotations for spin control) wouldnt be very funny to them. whereas, we all love a good elephant walk joke

        In all fairness in both cases it was adults acting like idiots.

          Great thread. It's just too bad charliecatamount isnt around so he could argue that Conte is an off-campus facility much like Aggans.

              anyway. back to hockey talk. important notes and announcements

              Vermont arrived in Boston today and had a brief ice session over at Harvard's Bright Center in Cambridge as the basketball floor was down at Conte forum in prepartion for friday's season opener vs Dartmouth. Here is a picture of the team on their way past MIT

              *****http://web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2006/elephants.jpg******

              Also, the vermont boosters club would like to invite all catamount fans to pre-game and post-game festivities to be held at the elephant walk restaurant located at 900 beacon street in Boston. The elephant walk serves the finest french dishes this side of canada, and is located just a mere 6.4 kilometers from conte forum.

                How about the 4-1 beating they gave BC in recent history? We could talk about that.

                  "about" and "to" are two entirely different prepositions with whole separate definitions, just so you're aware. it's true!

                    it's also located on BU's campus so I'm not sure they'd want to venture near relevant banners until they have to.

                          Fact: Eaves most certainly did run into Exter.

                          that should keep this gem rolling.

                            Elephant walk's fair game in my book. If Vermont fans want to bring up Tim Thomas (someone's sig), their Frozen Four from the 90s, Lowell's lack of history or whatever else it is hippies find relevant, then they can deal with the elephant walk being brought up.
                            Places I've seen a college hockey game: Agganis Arena, Alfond Arena, Bright Center, Consol Energy Center, Conte Forum, DCU Center, Fenway Park, Gutterson Fieldhouse, Houston Field House, Lawler Arena, Madison Square Garden, Matthews Arena, Mullins Center, Schneider Arena, Scottrade Center, Sears Centre, Tampa Bay Times Forum, TD Bank Sports Center, TD Garden, Tsongas Center, Tully Forum, Verizon Center, Verizon Wireless Arena, Walter Brown Arena, Wells Fargo Center, Whittemore Center

                              Superior teams lose every once in a while to inferior opponents. It happens.

                              Uh... I would say adults were involved in both cases, but I wouldn't call child abuse simply "acting like an idiot."

                                Tim Thomas, Eric Perrin and Marty St. Louis were long gone when the "scandal" took place.
