UMass-Amherst fans are sure sensitive about a name. I however would suggest that they start getting used to it. With UMass-Lowell going D1, it will start to get used much more frequently for athletics.

The attached apparel items (one of which is an varsity athletics program) available for sale on the web have Amherst in the name.
Those look kinda cool - I think I'll get one.

Bombay Sapphire, straight up with olives. Now I'm on the fence. Maybe I'll mix a couple of those tonight. Not three though. Three and I'll have no idea who won the game until the morning.

No it won't. I think you're using it to try to get under posters skin. Umass-Lowell is not going to be the impetus to refer to Umass sports teams by another name. If it does, then it is a total branding failure on the part of the Umass AD.

Re: 2/20 A-10 Games

I'm still new to the Gin Martini. The olives are essential. I'm told I'm supposed to wave a bottle of vermouth near the glass as well. Don't put any in the glass, just wave the bottle. I have to admit I haven't been strictly following that rule so far. I do use the Sapphire now though, so I'm halfway there.

So I think I misread res earlier, Bill Russell is the rye guy. That explains alot.

Don't fall for that 1980s macho crap about waving the vermouth bottle. Hell, even a sensitive, almost effeminate UMass alum like yourself can do that. It's not a martini unless it has gin and vermouth. I respect Mr. Bond, but there is no such thing as a "vodka martini". If you really want to be a man, try the original recipe from the 19th century -- equal parts vermouth and gin. I guarantee you'll never try it again, but at least you'll be a man.

And don't be drawn in by '84's Sapphire crap either. Spend your money on the vermouth. Any decent gin will do. He's just trying to lord it up over us 99 percenters.

Now to the game, I swear on the grave of Chief Wiggum, Brown Indians by 7.

Re: 2/20 A-10 Games

Please res, not too much vermouth. Reminds me of when we were in Paris a couple of years ago, and they have no clue how to make a martini over there. In fact, I don't think I've been able to get a decent one anywhere in Europe. At one place in Paris, they actually had a "dry martini" on a drink menu. Thought I was in luck. Then, I watched the bartender take the vermouth off the shelf, and just begin pouring it into the shaker. Then, she took the gin, and put much less of that in the shaker. At another fine Parisian restaurant, I asked for a martini, and the waiter inquired as to whether I wanted red or white. I told him I'd have the burgundy.

Re: 2/20 A-10 Games

JFC...there is NO SUCH THING as a "gin martini". FFS a mertini is made with freaking gin. It's only twentysomething douchebags who invented the "vodka martini". A martini is made with gin.

Why then is it such a big problem for some to use the proper name?
Whatever you want to call it, it does not matter. I am proud to say I went to the UMass-Amherst, a US news rankings top 100 school. I can't say the same for the University of Rhode Island at Kingston. That's where the not so sharp ones go.

Since when do the Bonnies play in a high school gym?

I love the games being on local TV now that I'm out of school, but it really kills the attendance. It's an awful night out, too.

Re: 2/20 A-10 Games

What an ugly game (except Mosley). 60th meeting between the two teams. UMass holds the edge 39-20. Begs the question: is there any A10 team against which SBU has a winning record?
