They have too proud a history for the lack of success lately. I am a lifelong BC fan but live in Southeastern Mass very close to Providence. Always root for the Friars when they are not playing my Eagles. Hope things get better for them Dave Hendrickson It certainly makes it tougher to draw big, exciting crowds with the Providence Bruins playing in the same town. So Army’s successor will have his work cut out for him. MCHOCKEY Very well written Dave…glad to hear you had as much fun at the game on Sat. as we Merrimack Faithful have had all year. It’s been on heck of a ride and I feel like it’s just beginning :) See you at the Gahden!!! :) Dave Hendrickson Thank you! Ryan Mulderrig Can I just say that I genuinely appreciate the very obscure Billy Joel reference of the title of this post. Summer Highland Falls is a great song. GO EAGLES. Dave Hendrickson Glad you caught it! There one more moderately obscure reference, though not a musical one. If no one catches it, I’ll point it out in a couple days. Dave Hendrickson The other reference was “Merrimack’s little bandbox” which refers back to John Updike’s famous piece “Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu” in which he refers to Fenway Park as “a lyric little bandbox of a ballpark.” UD Band Member Dave…thanks for the kind words about UD’s pep band. I am an alumnus of UD (’79), and had the opportunity to play with the pep band this past weekend. I had a great time, and thoroughly enjoyed the games. Merrimack has great students, fans, and facilities, and I hope that I get the chance to return sometime in the near future. Go Warriors!!!
