Sportsmas Time is Here

The Third Day of Sportsmas:

What: Harvard women's hockey at New Hampshire
When: 7pm tonight (Coverage begins at 6:45pm)
Where: Whittemore Center, Durham, NH
Who: Brendan Roche (play by play) and Lachlan Macintosh (color commentary)
Coverage: 95.3 FM in the Greater Boston Area, anywhere in the world

 pictured above: our transportation to the Whittemore Center in Durham

(with apologies to Gene Autry, Johnnie Marks and thanks to Scott Reed for letting me steal the mascot names/idea out of "Twas the Night Before Sportsmas")

You know Tiger and Bulldog and Big Green and Lion,
Quaker and Brown Bear and Big Red and Crimson,
But do you recall, the most famous mascot of all?

Johnnie the Crimson-nosed mascot (mascot)
Had a very shiny nose (like a spot light)
And if you ever saw him (saw him)
You would even say it glows (like a goal lamp!)

All of the other mascots (mascots)
Used to laugh and call him names (like a "SIEVE!")
They never let poor Johnnie (Johnnie)
Join in any Ivy League games (like ice hockey)

Then one foggy Sportmas eve
John Harvard came to say:
Johnnie with your nose so bright (like the Center)
Won't you guide my zamboni tonight?

Then how the mascots loved him (loved him)
As they shouted out with glee (like on TV)
Johnnie the crimson-nosed mascot
We'll tune in to W-H-R-B!
