    Question In the famous words....

    of John Belushi: They took the bar. The whole f-in bar!

    Didn't know that every thread had to be dead on topic for those just finding the Waiting Bar thread locked. As a contributor to this web site let me apologize to everyone on behalf of someone's overzealous attempt to keep this place straightened up. Guess we'll just have to take our fun elsewhere since it's past last call...

    Finally you guys reference a movie I have watched repeatedly.....


    With so many off topic threads, why did they lock that one?

    Guess this means those AFGP folks better drop the 1199s since the bar closed its doors. Never thought I'd actually stay at a bar until it closed down because of our unruly behavior.

    the back room was about empty anyway. It had been running since early May.
    Hopefully someone can open the Woo Hoo bar soon...

    How did you make it through college without closing a bar?

    Freshman year I was in Troy NY, bars open until 4am. Intermural hockey got the late ice times so we were done at 2am, closed the bar, hit Dunkin Donuts with the cops until 7am, then went back to the dorm, showered, and then class. Something like that anyway, the goods times are always the ones that someone else has to tell you what you did the night before...

    OK Brian, do your stuff with the house. So do you think they understand what the waiting bar was about? Here comes the new one.

    Already handled. New person handling the forum cop role, taking things a little to literally. Have to credit them for at least paying attention to detail.

    Yeah, that's what happens when you're a Division II skill level but don't get into the schools you could play for and end up at a Division I school with no JV. You play intermural. Shoulda gone to St Lawrence instead, had a JV team and if you fall out the front door you're in Canada, land of cheap beer, drinking age of 18, and Cuban cigars.

    Could they not just unlock the old bar. Thats BS just shutting down a thread with so many people watching it for no reason. Who trained this "new guy" FEMA?

    Does this new bar at least have an internet connection? So that if theres someone here not drinking they can,
    1. Let use know when the 1199's come out
    2. When the other bar opens, (I want my case of whiskey back)
    3. Any other request?

    Wow, BC! Never figured you for an Engineer! I've skated many a wee hour in that Fieldhouse myself. My FD is just south of the city, and RPI owns a bunch of land there that they have now built their Technology Park on. If the late 70's/early 80's they wanted all of the old barns, farmhouses, garages, and other construction removed, so the FD burned them all down for them. We got a TON of Live Fire Training out of it, plus the "paid" us with ice-time at the Fieldhouse (we had an FD hockey team back then).

    Yeah, was either there or way up north so I took the more southern choice. I was smart enough to get in and smart enough to leave once I figured out that the professors were only there to work on high $$ research projects instead of teach classes. TA's taught everything but only knew enough to read out of the books and not answer questions. Was $28k a year in 1992, can't imagine what they want know to go there now. Was in the process of NROTC-Marine enrollment when I took off, only part of it I regret not following through on.

    Was a real nice field house though. Best band in the league, that's for sure.

    You had to have it together to even get in the door at RPI.
