The Gold Sea

"No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die."

The Clarkson Athletic department has called for a Sea of Gold at Cheel Arena this weekend as the Golden Knights face off against arch-rival St. Lawrence. The last time the athletic department put on one of these unicolored events was in 2001-2002 for the home SLU game when it was deemed a "whiteout" was in effect. This was met with mixed results as shown from this photo:
Granted the majority of the student section is wearing white, but the level of this whiteout could be compared to gym socks that missed the clorox cycle. There are free gold shirts being handed out to students. But with limited supply of free schwag one might expect our Sea of Gold to leave a greenish stain on our Golden Knights. How can you prevent this tarnishing? Simple. Plan ahead. Show up with a yellow/gold shirt and leave the free stuff to someone less prepared. The time for sacrifice is here. And honestly, are you really going to need that t-shirt in 5 years? Are you going to frame it? No. Also with a free shirt you are constrained to whatever the shirt says. With your own shirt you are free to express your love for SLU in any way possible. The time has come to band together as fans and get behind our Golden Knights who use a Green Knight for a logo and have been wearing black uniforms lately. Nevertheless we will remain true to the Green and Gold and hopefully it will be another Golden evening in the North Country.
