    What exactly is an "international boarder"?
    According to the NCAA, if they don't pay you might have to vacate.

    Add another team from northern NY (about 30 minutes northeast of Potsdam, 75 minutes northwest of Plattsburgh)

    Akwesasne team to play in newly formed Federal Hockey League (Press-Republican article from 3/17/10).

    More here.

    and this (with video):

    "...

    The team's president says the FHL was drawn to the Akwesasne community because of its proximity to the international boarder and its $5 million facility.
    ...

    We are going to be an all Canadian team, so it should be an interesting rivalry with all the other teams in the league. We want to show the talent we have here in Canada, compared to what is in the U.S., we'll see how things go from there," said Akwesasne Warriors' Team President Basem Awwad.

    Athletes with dual citizenship, but living in Northern New York, are eligible for tryouts.

    I'm from the area so I think this is cool. I only hope we can get the services of Tim "Dr. Hook" McCracken and Andre "Poodle" Lussier.

    A well researched article, but it comes across with negative undertones, perhaps they are trying to "call a spade - a spade", but -

    I have to agree, that if the individual teams do not have access to an irrevocable 5-year line of credit of at least $1 million dollars (and the leases might require Surety Bonds), they are not too likely to survive. If they do, in this current “tough to get credit” market, then they must have assembled an awesome business plan – or had access to significant collateral. That said, for those with good or significant collateralized credit lines, credit is cheap (i.e. low interest rates), so that is a potential plus for them. As for the smaller markets, when it comes to sponsorship the individual sums are likely to be smaller but the competition among those seeking sponsorship is also smaller, and it is much easier to build a proud, loyal, local following. As some of the posters on this board can attest, millions of dollars are put into sponsorship of small track auto racing supporting hundreds of small time race teams, particularly among much of demographics being targeted by this startup league. Can a hockey league make it on a $5050 weekly salary cap? Perhaps, if it is a labor of love, and sufficient startup capital – financial, talent (players and management/administration), fans and sponsorship are available, I for one am wishing them the best of luck.

    From Shorter Mathematical Humor:

    Why do programmers and mathematicians have trouble distinguishing
    Halloween from Christmas?

    Because OCT 31 = DEC 25.

    And for Prof:
    "Old mathematicians never die; they just lose some of their functions."

    This is good review for me. No finals to grade
    Tis the season for Log[1-X]/-1+X

    Alexandria would be better than Fisher's Landing!
