ramble through the bronx

yes, this here is ramble through the bronx, the continuing musings of a graduate student* who should be writing her dissertation, but honestly, living in new york city there's really so much else to do...

* and her commenting friends. And guest blogger.

So I hope I don't regret this...

Tonight the Leafs are playing the Rangers. I have a hard-core Rangers fan in my 11.30 class, with whom I have a pretty good rapport. I made a few comments during the lecture today about how the Leafs were totally going to win (yes, believe it or not, I was able to fit these into a Descartes lecture!), and so after class he was hanging around giving me a hard time, saying no, the Rangers were going to win, since, after all, they're pretty high in the league right now. They lead the Atlantic division, in fact.

So he said he'd bet me a bottle of scotch that the Rangers would win. I said no, that probably wouldn't work, Fordham wouldn't like a professor buying a bottle of whiskey for a student, or vice versa, and that I didn't think he was 21 years old yet. He asked whether I could doubt that he wasn't 21 yet. (Anyway, that's funny if you've been reading lots of Descartes. Honestly.)

Anyway, we chatted about it for a bit, and ultimately settled on the following bet, in front of three witness (three other students). If the Leafs win, he has to sing the Canadian anthem (which he doesn't know) in front of the whole class.

If the Rangers win, I need to sing the American anthem. In front of the whole class.

Fortunately this is the class I get along with.

But anyway, here's hoping the Leafs win.... I've got them on internet radio, since of course the local broadcast TV stations don't carry hockey.
