We typically look mostly at the NHL at BMR, but with only two teams left in the College Hockey championship tournament, colloquially known as the Frozen Four, I thought we should look at the two schools left to fight for the National Championship with a few fun facts! They are both small little schools from Connecticut, so we will all probably learn something!
- Yale is in the Ivy League, which is a collection of schools that specialize in botany.
- Yale is named after Elihu Yale, who was a governor of the British East India Company. The Selanne's almost named their sone Elihu
- Yale's top major is "alcohology". The final involves a beer bong.
- Yale is known for it's prestigious Law School, which involves more viewings of "Alfie" than should be legal.
- For as elite as Yale pretends to be, New Haven isn't even the snootiest town in their county. Not even top 5. Connecticut is oppressively snooty.
- Moses Cleaveland is among the famous alums. He founded Cleveland. He knew the city was going to be so embarrassing, he changed the spelling to dissociate from it.
- Yale was Kevin Schultz's safety school.
- Quinnipiac was named after their founder Fernando Quinnipiac. You probably know him better as the inventor of the bean bag chair.
- Quinnipiac is following the Gonzaga model for success that they used for basketball. Have a funny name, a student body that smokes a ton of pot then also somehow field a good team.
- Probably the best college in New Haven County, Connecticut.
- Quinnipiac is home to a famous polling institute. I'm not sure what that means, but I think it's where the Islanders get their ice girls.
- Most students are actually clay-mation.
- Quinnipiac has the most winners of Legends of the Hidden Temple per capita in any American student body.
- The school had a controversy with the school's newspaper and their insistence on putting news online before in the print edition. I, for one, side with the school. The internet is stupid and not a good source of valid information.
