Normally, all people bleed red.

But only a select group of people can say they bleed red and blue.  Those people are the Riverhawks. 

Who are the Riverhawks?  You can say that it's all those who play a sport at University of Massachusetts - Lowell.  That is correct, but that's only a small portion of the family.  It's those who work hard in classes, strive to be the best of the best, teach others the knowledge of their field, keep our campus safe, serve others with a golden heart, and those who continue to hold the torch of UML after graduation.  It's everyone in the UMass-Lowell community - the administration, faculty and staff, current students, alumni, sponsors... and you, the perspective student.  We all support each other like a family, even if we don't know each other that well... or heck, even know each other at all.  We simply are a rare breed of people. 

Do you want to be a Riverhawk?  Do you want to bleed red and blue?  You can be part of the family by coming to tonight's Hockey East Final Championship game at the TD BankNorth Garden in Boston, MA.  The UMass-Lowell Riverhawks will be playing their second Hockey East Championship ever versus the #1 Boston University Terriers.  You may say it's going to be a hard obstacle to clear, but nothing is impossible for the Riverhawks.  Last night, my friend Abbey and I watched a game that no one will ever forget.  The Riverhawks played against the tough Northeastern Huskies.  Before last night's game, the Riverhawks were 0-3 against them with only 4 or 5 goals.  That was a statistic that was anchored in the minds of everyone in the Garden... But that was a weak statistic.  After being down 2-0, the Riverhawks scored 2 unanswered goals, which one was scored in the final few seconds of the game, UML held it strong and brought it to overtime.  Within 3 minutes of OT, UML scored the game winner. 

I seriously can't explain the atmosphere, the thrill, the anxiety that was going through the hearts and minds of everyone in that arena.  Maybe you should come down and experience it yourself - 7pm at the Garden.

What are you waiting for?!?  Jump on the MBTA and head into Boston now!!!!
