this last page got me looking at the D3Hoops standings page to see if I could pronounce every name...there are some interesting ones out there in Division III for sure, I think I can say all the New York/New England/New Jersey, most of the Mid-Atlantic, but I got stuck on ones like Redlands and Northland, do you hit that A or is it like Maryland...nothing sounded right when I tried to say Gustavus Adolphus, Fontbonne or Averett.

You are overthinking it... and mispronouncing Maryland :) Though, your hard A works for Averett, but there is a hard a in Gustavus, but NOT in Adolphus. :)

That should be the next feature to be added to team pages. A little audio button like on wikipedia where you can hear a clip of the pronunciation.

Easier said than done... tried this project for years just as a behind the scenes thing ... takes a lot to put it all together. It's been a brain child of mine for quite some time.

I saw a University of Mount Union window decal in the parking lot at Delaware Valley University during the Aggies' football game against Alvernia.

Maybe someone on one of the coaching staffs went there?

Last week driving through Wheaton, IL. on my way to Dry City Brew Works (shameless plug for any Western Suburban Craft Beer drinkers out there), and the car in front of me had both a Wheaton (not a surprise in Wheaton) and Capital U. bumper sticker. Fun to see another car repping the OAC

On a major road in the Eagle Rock area of Los Angeles on Saturday, less than a mile from Occidental's campus, I parked behind a car which had a Western Connecticut State University alumni sticker. That was unexpected! It's a long way from Danbury.

In anticipation of the big game tomorrow, I saw a guy in my office (who I had no idea went to SJU) rocking a Johnnie shirt. Of course I had to stop him in the hallway and talk about the game and the passing of Gagliardi.

While watching a program on PBS about volcanoes in DR of Congo, there was a young African boy wearing an Ithaca College t-shirt.
