Floor hockey is harder than you think. My team, Eternal Floor Hockey of the Poli Sci Mind, was demolished tonight by younger, spryer, more polished, and frankly less nerdy undergrads by a score of 12-0. Compared to the opposing team, we lacked not only hockey skills, but the ability to hit the puck out of the air, the ability to pass, a goalie that could stop shots, and a cheering section of 18 year-old girls.
Our only respite from the shame - one of the first-years on our team told one of our opponents that we're grad students, to which he replied, "Wow - I wouldn't have guessed that." If you squint and look at it from far away, that's a compliment.
