Fanning the Flames

Syracuse vs. UConn, today at 1:30 PM in the Carrier Dome! That means I'm in for another day where I get to wake up at 7 AM, then spend about 5-7 non-consecutive hours playing snare drum. Yay. Also, UConn is bringing their marching band for some reason, so there should be some interesting drumline interaction.

Now, there's apparently some kind of rivalry between SU and UConn, even though the football teams have never played each other before. I've already explained how I feel about sports rivalries. However, as a member of the marching band, I'm required to support the team. Therefore...


Heh heh.


SU: 42
UConn: 30


By the way, UConn's football team may not be that good, but their marching band is awesome. I counted at least nine snare drums (our drumline has seven snares). That's all you need to know.

That's why we all call it 'ScrewConn' or 'PuConn'

Additionally, there's an SU/UConn rivalry? Wow.

Our football team doesn't have to be good. That's why we have basketball. :) It fails to explain why the state felt it necessary to pour millions into building a new football stadium for them. And, oy! The traffic that has caused.

Nutmegger - a citizen of the State of CT. Although the official state nickname is "The Constitution State" it is also known as the "Nutmeg State" ... hence the nutmegger.

It also rolls of the tongue a bit better than Connecticutensian or Connecticuter, or Connecticutarian. I do kinda like the last one though.

Hmmm...based on that formula, I could be either a Keystoner (Pennsylvania) or an Emperor (New York). I kinda like the second one better.

Ohay, so what the heck do you call a Michigander who's been transplanted and is now an Alabamian?


Seriously, I need to know these things.
