Why Can’t I Buy a PC Hockey Jersey?

It’s no secret that I’m a huge college hockey fan. I have the iPhone app, for heaven’s sake (Small plug: the College Hockey News app is a must download). I’ve been going to University of Maine hockey games since I was little, and I’ve currently been to Friars hockey games at six different Hockey East arenas including Schneider Arena, the Conte Forum (BC), Matthews Arena (Northeastern), Alfond Arena (Maine), Cumberland County Civic Center (special location for a game against Maine), and the Whittemore Center (UNH). What’s one thing all these arenas have in common, except for ours? They sell jerseys there. Yes, that’s right. You cannot buy a Friars jersey here, or apparently anywhere.

The room had been left unkempt for months, leaving a thick film of dust covering most surfaces. On the desk lay an open notepad. Poems, quotes, and sketches of another life littered the pages with the sort of magical touch that could make one forget reality and escape to a distant land of ecstasy. An empty bottle, turned on its side, complemented the notebook as though the two objects were unlikely lovers holding hands. The alarm continued to sound. The figure sprung from beneath the blankets in a rush, silencing the alarm in one motion.

This Is Not My Life: Part 6

I waved my hand behind my shoulder as I turned around to walk towards the large glass doors into the school. I pulled them open and continued inside down the hallway to the same room where my first period class had been held yesterday. Just as I was about to walk in through the open classroom door, I felt someone grab my shoulder.
