red helmets at home?
IIRC, red helmesa in NCAA regional final last year. Bad omen.

The photo is not Lynah so I think you’re right. (Though wasn’t there a short stretch in a recent season when they did wear red helmets at home?)

Could be. Same bad omen. Was one of the two. I remember being puzzled at the time.

Edit: Just checked video of last year's NCAA regional final. White sweaters with red helmets. Ugh.

Jan 2017. The weekend where we honored the 1967 team and also lost to both Dartmouth and Harvard. They abandoned it for the rest of the regular season after that, I think.

Memorable for me, because I fractured my femur that Sunday. Great weekend.

My honest, no-joke, opinion is that a banner acknowledging that we finished The Season of The Plague in #1 in the polls is a reasonable hearkening back to the pre-playoffs college football era. This year's teams - men's and women's - deserve to be remembered, even if it's just a second accolade on the ECAC regular season championship banners.

Maybe just a banner with our record. Don't claim a championship or a title or a ranking. Just the record.

It's too good a year to not be honored at all.

All this banner nonsense has nothing to do with the team themselves. It's about your butthurt feelings from losing out on the chance to watch and possibly experience *your* dreams of celebrating a winner. You want a banner to make you feel better.

Next time someone bumps into one of the coaches or one of the players, ask them what they think and report back what you find out. I can't believe any of them want a banner.

P.s. while you're at it, how about agitating for banners or whatever for the wrestlers that had a great chance of hitting the All American mark.
So much vitriol from you, man. You have no idea what we want, what the players want, what anyone other than you wants. The team just played one of the best seasons in program history and some of us think it should be commemorated in some way. I'd think many of the players and coaches would agree. And "butthurt"? Did the governor in your state shut down your elementary school yet?



Hmmm. Looks like I git it right.

"Wearing a 2020 Detroit Frozen Four sweater — “this is where we should be right now,” Schafer said — the coach put fans’ calls to hang a national championship banner at Lynah Rink to rest on Thursday.

“That would cheapen it,” Schafer said. “It’s not a national championship. … We’ll honor this group of guys somehow inside Lynah Rink.”

Again, just have one saying "2020". People can make of it what they want; it can even go beyond hockey, and just be a memorial to the outbreak too.

Huh. You posted the entire last section of the article but not the title to the section: "No, Cornell isn’t going to hang a national championship banner."

Nor did you closely read the text of that section: "the coach put fans’ calls to hang a national championship banner at Lynah Rink to rest...'It’s not a national championshipWe’ll honor this group of guys somehow inside Lynah Rink.'"

Did I say anything about hanging a "national championship banner"? Nope. I said some banner should be raised to commemorate this year's team. Schafer seems to agree, given that he said the team will be honored inside Lynah.

So you hate Bill James statistical analysis but you go all wobbly kneed for mawkish Roger Kahn sentimentality?

You're not a maverick truth teller. You're just old.

I dislike name dropping [see above], costumes, cute demonstrations at hockey games, and lengthy postmortems of hockey games -especially those involving long columns of numbers and blizzards of decimal points. I get a kick out of watching athletic skill, winning strategies, persistence, resilience, and teamwork. Booklets of page upon page of numerical game exegesis do not interest me in the least and always make me suspicious the author is showing off - but I realize fans go to hockey games or write about them for different reasons. Maybe all those numbers are an ingredient in some sort of mammalian mating ritual.

It sucks that ESPN+ has taken down almost all of the games. I thought I might be able to get a longer version of this goal and all I could find was this bit of gold. I hope the athletic department is busy during this time of working from home.

This morning while dss28 and I were getting our morning walk in at Commodore Barry Park, we noted that the ballfield had recently been mowed, but not all of it - the center third or so had not been done. Twenty minutes later, a guy drove onto the ballfield inside a large industrial mower and started making a circuit to finish the job. Fighting back tears, I half-heartedly chanted, "You're not Dave!"

I'm sure I'll be back whenever Cornell hockey returns (October probably, October 2021 hopefully) but I gotta say, and this is a big surprise, I don't miss sports one bit.

This could just be the relief of a Mets fan not having to suffer.

This morning while dss28 and I were getting our morning walk in at Commodore Barry Park, we noted that the ballfield had recently been mowed, but not all of it - the center third or so had not been done. Twenty minutes later, a guy drove onto the ballfield inside a large industrial mower and started making a circuit to finish the job. Fighting back tears, I half-heartedly chanted, "You're not Dave!"

I really &*%>ing miss hockey.

And this morning as I passed a woman on her riding mower, I found myself thinking "You're not Dave!"

You suck, Beeeej. bang

Well, my work is done here. innocent

If only.

I've gotta plead ignorance to the "You're not Dave" cheer - assuming it's a zamboni reference. Can someone fill me in?

The Lynah Faithful typically greets the ice-resurfacer during his first lap during intermissions by screaming "ZAAAAAAAAM----BONI!!!" as it passed by, followed by a chant of the driver's name: "DAVE! DAVE! DAVE! DAVE!" At road games, the Cornell section would do the same, but follow with a derisive (but good-natured) "YOU'RE NOT DAVE! YOU'RE NOT DAVE!" chant at the arena's driver. I'm pretty sure "You're not Dave" also happens when there is a substitute driver at Lynah.

There was a time when the back of the Olympia machine had the first names of the rink staff painted on it, so after it passed by, the chant was reading it: "GENE, PHIL, DAVE, ART!"

Hah, I forgot about that chant. I think it was mainly from section A. My memory is the band did the GENE! PHIL! DAVE! ART! thing and then did DAVE! DAVE! DAVE! DAVE! whenever he was driving. He used to only work one of the nights each weekend so "YOU'RE NOT DAVE" wasn't really a thing at that point, at least not in Lynah.

I'm assuming Dave is no longer the game night driver. I remember talking to him many years ago (early 00s, probably) and he was saying that he was doing as little of the driving/resurfacing work as possible because of the physical toll it takes, both in terms of the driving/maintenance/shoveling/etc. and the exposure to the exhaust. He loved working the games, though.

Time for environmentally aware Cornell to use an electric Zamboni, or Olympia. But they carry a stiff premium, something like $150,000 for lithium-power vs. ~$100,000 for propane / natural gas.

OOC, what's the source of electricity for re-charging it? If it's fossil fuels, you're only kicking the can down the road. Not to mention a two-step process (fuel to electricity to Zamboni action) is most probably inherently less efficient than a single step process.

Caution thread drift: A battery electric vehicle that gets its electricity from a big power plant is more efficient propelling the vehicle than using a hydrocarbon fuel for combustion energy. Charging your car with electricity at 12-13 cents/kWh is like buying gasoline at one-third of the prevailing price for gasoline. It may be more efficient to scrub the pollutants in 250 big powerplants than in 200 million (in the US) individual combustion engine vehicles. And Dave and his successors aren't breathing carbon monoxide inside Lynah no matter what the full lifecycle cost of the Zamboni is.

Also true: There's total lifecycle cost of an EV, the batteries, where the battery components are sourced, etcetera, to be considered. But there's a real benefit to emitting the pollution that creates power for vehicles someplace outside the world's ~40 megacities (10M plus population). Most are in Asia so we're a little slow recognizing the problem. All North America has is Mexico City, NYC, LA depending on how you measure the region, and Toronto almost (6M metro area).

If Lynah had an lithium-ion powered Zamboni, we'd still have Dave scraping the ice, maybe.

Natural gas is so cheap and so prevalent that coal-fired plants, the worst powerplant polluters, are being mothballed. So there is that one upside to fracking. Nuclear powerplants are super efficient and non-polluting with a couple outlier exceptions such as Fukushima (we have relatives living near there but they are spreading God's word so maybe it's okay), TMI, Chernobyl.

So I have a spectacularly stupid question. Heavy elements come from larger, hotter stars or their explosions or whatever -- OK I get that. But why do the atoms of those elements congregate together in large enough concentrations to be easily gathered? Why aren't they spread diffusely through all matter?

Do atoms of the same type "like" each other?

I think it's just random and it builds upon itself. After the explosion, certain areas happen to have more stuff, that stuff gathers more stuff by gravity, and so on.

I get why matter collects into clumps -- that's gravity. But why do you get enough uranium atoms to collect into molecules close enough to each other that you get uranium ore? Why don't you get infinitesimal traces of uranium scattered everywhere so that most matter has a random handful of uranium atoms scattered through it.

Matter concentrates but why does it become relatively homogeneous above the molecular level?

Are you saying the local source just has enough of it that some of it will stick together? My completely uninformed understanding is even right at the supernova source of heavy elements they are still ludicrously rare.

Given their decay rates, the abundance of these elements at the time the solar system formed (roughly a billion years ago) should have been about 0.3.

Um. .3 what? Does that mean 3/10th of a percent of all the matter ejected from the super nova? That's actually not that rare at all.

I googled it. Uranium is considered to be "incompatible" with magma. That is, when magma cools and partially solidifies, the uranium (and some other metals) tend to stay in the melt. It's concentration by fractional crystallization. Eventually the melt completely solidifies and you get concentrated solid uranium ore deposits.

Warning: I have absolutely no idea of exactly what makes uranium atoms congregate.

BUT: Usually it depends on the atom's valence electrons, of which uranium has six. This leaves room for two additional electrons in its valence shell. These can be occupied by electrons from adjacent atoms. This is why "uranium is almost always found combined with other elements" (Hammond 2000).

It doesnt really address any of it and most of it has not really even been decided by the state.. Hockey Bball would probably be best served to push the season back to an after xmas start, fball should probably do an ivy only schedule if they decide to try and play.

I think they are really still waiting on testing to be improved before making all the big decisions.
