Its been a good week, I made it through my gauntlet of exams, papers, and work practically unscathed. I even had the time to see the Plattsburgh game. If you don’t know just how momentous the occasion is let me just say tickets sold out the first day, and the line to get in to the game was out the doors of Poucher two hours before the game. Its the game people whisper about after the game because they’ve gone horse from all the cheering jeering and excitement. It makes me think about the almost symbiotic relationship that rivals have. They strive to be better than they are by training harder, enduring longer and galvanizing there resolve all to be 1% better than their rival. This rivalry seems to improve skills exponentially compared to having friendly competition, or setting a lofty goal of beating the best (these would improve skills as slowly as power functions, if you math majors were curious). Oswego crushed Plattsburgh this time but it only means they are going to train that much harder and we’ll see how hungry they are for victory. But until then “Puck Flattsburgh”.
