    Smile RPI @ Union (1/16): in which Union fans crow about being in 1st and "owning" RPI

    Might as well get this started.

    I say again to Union fans - you were in first place when the New Year started, and for cause.
    Keep an open mind. Just don't be so open-minded that your brain falls out.

    With leadership also comes great responsibility. We can neither crow about being in first place or "owning" our brethren from Troy. If we do, we'll probably be entitled to neither. I really wish we didn't have to play each other so many times this season. May the next meeting be in Albany in March.

    Totally agree. 3x is more than enough. Ought to be a great battle on the 16th.

    Tell that to your cohorts.

    QFT means either Quoted For Truth or Quit ****ing Talking. Which one it is depends on the context. As I've never heard Ralph utter a real swear or express any love for Steve Hagwell, I'm going with the former.

    Actually I knew that, but had to google the acronym. I thought maybe Ralph was trying to make an "Engineer" out of me being a Shirley Jackson devotee.

    Last time I checked, he calls it RPI, not a Communiversity. "AH, MOTHERLAND!" -End of the 'Tute

    I actually swear a lot, just not on line. You did correctly figure out what I meant by QFT.

    That is the one and only scenario where I would be happy to participate in Cornell's newspaper greeting...

    If the first three games are any indication of what this game will be like, then it will be quite a battle. Whenever these two teams play, it is always exciting.

    Game 1: 4-3 RPI in OT
    Game 2: 5-4 Union in OT
    Game 3: 5-4 Union
    Game 4: ???

    I'm expecting a huge crowd this Saturday. FINALLY there is a lot of buzz on campus about the hockey team and I'm sure the usual contingent of RPI fans will make the short trip.
    LET'S GO UNION DA DA DADADA

    Fear the Capital District. We may be the most formidable duo in the league, finally.

    Thus, this weekend's game reminds me of a little ditty.

    Liberty or death, what we so proudly hail
    Once you provoke her, rattling of her tail
    Never begins it, never, but once engaged...
    Never surrenders, showing the fangs of rage

    So be it
    Threaten no more
    To secure peace is to prepare for war
    So be it
    Settle the score
    Touch me again for the words that you'll hear evermore...

    Don't tread on me
    Keep an open mind. Just don't be so open-minded that your brain falls out.

    This will be a war-2 of the better teams in the league that have already played 3 times and know each other well. Should be quite a game. Go Red!!!

    Barring some kind of practice injury, this will be the first of these four games that has RPI at 100% - has Union been at 100% yet? I know they had a bunch of suspensions for the tournament game.

    I think Boileau or someone else may have missed a game due to illness, but that's about it.
