I attended the Beaver Cup XXVII hockey game today, a (roughly) annual Southern California traditional meeting between the Massachusetts Institute of Technology Alumni team and the California Institute of Technology Alumni team. CalTech (hereinafter the “Evil Empire”) alums had sent the MIT (hereinafter “Mother Technology”) alums to ignominious defeat in the last three BC games.
In this photo (taken with my less-than-smart phone) you can see the Mother Technology players lining up for a face-off (all my photos were taken at face-offs since my phone camera is too crummy to get motion shots.)
The Evil Empire alums scored first in the first period, and the loyal crowd feared another humiliating defeat for Mother Technology. But Mother Technology’s sons scored two goals in the second period, and another two in the third to return the Cup to its rightful place.
We are happy
Tech is Hell

Updated 5/13/2013 — I have reaped the true fruits of my regrettable social ineptness; due to not interacting with team members I made two errors of fact in my original article. These have been corrected, and to the best of my belief this post is correct as it now stands. My apologies to the Southern California MIT Alumni Hockey Team, and to the CalTech Alumni Hockey Team as well.
