  • At the end of 2 the score is 2-2.

    Both Panther goals on the powerplay. Think they're something like 2/7. Way too many penalties.

    • Always thought "throw out the records" was an obligatory cliche. But here we are.

      3-3 into OT.

        I can't decide if that's a good or a bad tie.

        • 3-3 Final in what was a very evenly played game. Take a casual observer and have them guess which team was #2 in the nation and which one was winless and they probably wouldn't have a clue. Don't know if that's more of a compliment to Middlebury or more of a critique against Norwich.

            Yes, sometimes I really hate to be right, but anything can happen between NU and Midd. Off topic, what is Wick?

              I don't know where it came from originally. It was very commonly used by the time I arrived in '09.

                Fascinating that somebody who graduated in '56 doesn't know where it came from. I started hearing it about '83 or '84 at hockey games. I didn't know why they were saying 'go Wick. I didn't see anybody named Wick on the roster. I was told by a cadet at the time that "that's what Norwich has always been called." You have verified for me that what he said was not the case.

                  Good News? I think I have found the source of Wick. One of my classmates told me to the best of his understanding it originated some years after we graduated when the word NORWICH was painted on a storage building at the end of the field.......and if course the H looked more like a K and the Wick was born!! Sounds logical but at least its the best we can come up with unless somebody has found one better. You must remember that we had our official class photo of our 50th reunion enlarged and none of us could identify four of our members in the 50th reunion photo when we examined it last fall at our 60th. So age does improve some things, but memory is optional.

                    Good to know. It's a logical enough explanation. I never really questioned it.

                      I've heard a lot of different stories on how 'wick got started...that's a new one. I've heard at least five different stories on it and this makes six now.

                          Sounds about right. I've heard about the same number of versions for the story of cadets stealing Coast Guard's live bear mascot.

                            Perhaps young Flint can swing by Ainsworth to confirm the origin of "Wick" with Gary Lord, the Charles A. Dana Professor of History. That ought to be fun ...

                              I graduated in '65 and I never heard "Wick" used until many years later!

                                This story is believable, as I always thought that it had something to do with a typo that produced "Norwick."

                                I still think it is silly.
