Overheard at the BU/UNH Game on Friday night:
bcoolie: "I think they should go for the snowman!"
Me: "I'd like to see the snowman."
(Note: In case you didn't know, the Snowman is when a team scores 8 goals. The number 8 is shaped like a snowman)
BU scores in the 3rd period to make it 8-2. Cheering, yelling, screaming ensue.
Me: "THERE IT IS! THE SNOWMAN!"
bcoolie: (clapping and yelling) "HOW ABOUT DOUBLE DIGITS?"
Nearby BU Fans: (laughing and cheering us in our Maine jerseys as we are cheering for BU)
Later... BU scores again to make it 9-2
BU fan in front of us: "MERCY RULE!"
Me: "WAVE THE WHITE FLAG! SOMEBODY STOP THE FIGHT!" (starts doing the stupid "rotating finger" gesture the UNH fans do after they score)
bcoolie: "WE WANT DOUBLE DIGITS!"
UNH fan two rows down from us: "I've had enough of this shit." (leaves)
