The difficulty I have with messageboards is that it is difficult to understand my implied light-heartedness. The reason none of the kids go is because they are inundated with work and are generally apathetic when it comes to supporting any of their sports. Still, I wish that I had seen more of the sports games when I was there but I always thought that there was time in the future and now I realize time was always running out.
Looking back 13 years after graduating from Old Nassau, you are absolutely, completely dead on.
Although, let's be honest - football and hoops get a lot more attention not only from the students, but from alums as well. And hoops gets by far the most attendance from those who aren't affiliated to the university.
Princeton's culture unfortunately just isn't geared towards hockey, despite the fact that perhaps the greatest collegiate hockey name played there. I mean, has there ever been a reception for alums at one of the clubs after a hockey game? Meanwhile, EVERY club has a reception for alums after EVERY football game, whether they play Harvard or the worst team in the Colonial League.
I will be going to several games this season, scouting prospects (although I believe that the Tigers will only have one legit NHL prospect on the team his season). Should I be afraid that you guys will decide to throw tennis balls at me if you don't like my upcoming Top 20?
