December 16, 10pm MIT Intramural C League Ice Hockey
MIT Alumni Club of Boston 1
Alumni goal: Matt MacLeod
I came out of last night’s IM hockey game just glowing. Really, IM sports are the coolest thing ever! It’s a great way to build community, to have fun, to stay in shape. I could not imagine MIT without intramural sports.
My four years playing on my dorm’s C league ice hockey team were great fun, and every time I look at my Baker House ice hockey jersey, I swell with pride. It’s a great design for a uniform (I’ll have to take a picture of it and post it), and I’m so proud of my affiliation with such a great community and really cool architectural building. And I get just as excited when I put on my MIT Alumni jersey. I am a graduate of my favorite school in the universe, and have a hockey jersey (and a degree, and lifelong friends, and…) to show for it!
Sorry for the giddiness and gushing, but today, even more than usual, I am proud of MIT. Yes, it’s for a somewhat silly reason. But you can really feel the great MIT community out on the ice of Johnson Rink, or Jack Barry Turf, or Briggs Field, and when you feel that community, you know this is a special place.
