Wind Burn

Union returns home from a cold, windy win against Harvard in Boston at Fenway Park to find last-place RPI waiting for them in the NYSDOT salt dome they call Messa Rink. Do I smell third straight "turning point" for the Dutch?

Maybe. But we'll bet they were playing on better quality ice last night.

There's a natural way of things. The ratio of a Euclidean circle's circumference to its diameter is pi. When gravity equals drag, terminal velocity is achieved. And the hockey program at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute is superior to that at Union College. Some things in nature, of course, get upset from time to time, but there's a reason the expansion from 10 to 12 teams in the ECAC playoffs was referred to as the "Union rule," and why RPI's record is presently described as "Unionian."

Order will eventually be restored to the universe, it always does. Maybe it won't be tonight. But their time will come.
