    I was led to believe that Troy had fine beer (FINE BEER!). To go with the fine maidens, no doubt.

      Have they changed the words of that song, like they did to the fight song, to make it more PC?

      Perhaps the problem is when they turn 21 and can legally drink it.

        I'm sure that's it.

        Not really, though for family weekend, the band likes to leave out "offensive words". For example, "let's give a cheer for old Rensselaer, you bring the [pause], I'll bring the [pause]!"

          Maybe by that age they've been driven to drink by three years of athletic frustration!

            Player dynamics in a locker room will always affect seasonal outcomes!
            I've been lost since 1989. I got a breakaway on a frozen river and have been skating ever since.

              Yes that's true. What are you implying or hinting at here?

                Pretty cool. Now on NHL Network, The Clarkson Cup of the CWHL. Toronto vs Boston with Jordan Smelker.
                Brandon Pirri: Turk would give it to Jagr. That's awesome! Jagr's untouchable. And he would give it to Jagr.

                      I would argue that many start to think about their career path rather than what is next in hockey in their third year, and some even earlier. I had two D play the game at this level, and in both cases their shift of focus happened sometime during year two. (I'd call it the sophomore jinx). Many players start to realize that their chances at international glory are waning/done, and only those in the national U22 programs or close to it are still in it for that purpose. Many others realize that there is a career to worry about, and those that take that element seriously in school, tend to fall off quicker on the athletic front. (I'm generalizing here, there are always exceptions to the general trend). BY the time players are in year three, many start to map out what is after school.

                        According to http://www.collegecommitments.com/Co...x?x7cq9=FEMALE, RPI has a commitment for 2016 from defenseman Kendra Farole of the California Wave U16.

                          Any relation to the Farole on Elmira's roster?

                              That's interesting since RPI 2017 recruit Morgan Ondrick also has a sister playing for Elmira.

                                If anyone is interested, the final-four round robin today and tomorrow and the finals and consolation on Sunday of the PWHL are being streamed free through the Game Live accessible from the scoreboard page. Today http://pwhl3.stats.pointstreak.com/s...&date=03/27/15. Change the day to get tomorrow. Jaimie Grigsby is 76 for Whitby. She had an assist in the early game today.
