    I couldn't believe it - in December we got three new HD channels for free (yeah right - like no additional charge) from Cox, ESPNHD, INHD1 and 2. I was flipping through the new channels tonight and on INHD1 (yup, not ESPN) is the Cornell/Harvard Hockey game in HD and Dolby Surround - it fuckin rocks!

    I called my dad (I'm the black sheep - only one in three generations that didn't go to Cornell), who is a grad, in the Ag dept there for a while and lives 7 miles from the campus and he is pissed because he can only get it on the radio - this is cool!:dj

    First period is over with - on a quick post and beer break - 2 zip Cornell!:freaky :1drink

    This year hasn't been great for Cornell, but they are currently kicking Harvard's butt. The high school team was OK, but I didn't go to Ithaca so I'm biased.

    I'm also biased against Cornell, as the black sheep I also turned my offer from MIT and went to Clarkson - as an undergrad you never saw a prof at MIT (but I did get into Eggerton's lab), Clarkson was a lot of fun, learned a lot and the beer was always cold:1drink Besides, we also kicked Cornell and BU's ass when I was there:drums

    CLARKSON!?! No wonder you like college hockey. I went to RPI, and at the time Cornell and especially Clarkson were big rivals. Clarkson really likes hockey, and they are much more fun to be around than the straight-laced Cornell preppies.

    I've been to Cornell twice to watch hockey games, and everytime I expressed my opinion of them by urinating on the outside of a building.

    Some friends and I made the trip north to watch a Clarkson game. We were in the Clarkson student section. The students in the row above us actually "smuggled" in a 15 gal. keg of beer. They were very drunk, and told us that if RPI won, they would kill us. RPI lost, :bluduh so our lives were spared. It was a great time.

    That's my Alma Mater, we used to sneak booze and kegs into games - it was a shit load of wanna be drunk engineers against some very stupid security folks. When I was there the original arena burned down, many of us were arrested for attempting to put the fire out by pissing on it - we were all on the other side of the street drinking beer and cheering the fire on.

    Every frat got two beer blasts a year to make money - every blast consumed 115 kegs and the beer would generally be gone in 4 to 4.5 hours some times less if it was warm - them were the days - nickel beer nights and ugly women! :freaky
