One more Warriors/Golden Eagles thread (sorry)
« on: November 14, 2017, 12:52:14 AM »
As many of you know, I am now an assistant HS basketball coach in Charlotte. Yeah ... you're happy for me.

Anyway, last week at practice I mentioned that my alma mater Marquette was getting ready to open our season and the head coach said: "I didn't know you went to Marquette. Cool. The Golden Eagles. Nice."

We chatted about them for a minute and I said: "You know, we weren't always the Golden Eagles. We were the Warriors until the early-90s."

And he said: "Get out! Really? I didn't know that."

He's 31 years old. "Golden Eagles" is all he and millions of others like him have heard - for decades now.

Not commenting if that's "good" or "bad." Just that it is.

End of anecdote. Carry on.
Facts are fun.

OK, I'll do it for you:  that's bad.  And he's a bad person.  And when you see him again, tell him to stay the hell off my lawn.
Go Marquette!

Y'all didn't disappoint me with your reactions. Well done!

Our season opener is tonight. I am going to have to hustle home to not miss MU's opening tip.

Honestly, I'm past the point of caring. We're the only significant Golden Eagles in college basketball, so I guess that's fine. Would be better with no nickname, just Marquette, but that doesn't seem to be coming either.

Might be a good night to get ejected to give yourself some more time.

Magnificent beasts.  We just need to replace the cartoon with a realistic image.  And employ a falconer to fly one around the arena.

Yes! I've been saying this for a long time
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

Completely agree - would be awesome to be the only school sans nickname.

I'm on board with this.

Golden Eagle Training, 5 weeks in

Wisconsin Falconers Association

Per US Fish and Wildlife Service, Golden Eagles are the only eagles permitted for falconry in the United States.

That would presumably take care of our little bat problem.

If we have to stick with eagles, my favorite has always been from the movie, The Hudsucker Proxy  ;D
