Suggestion for Richard Joel

Last night I attended a varsity hockey game between OYS's team and MTA. The game itself was fantastic. One of the best regular season hockey games that I've seen in my 9 years of watching. OYST won, 3 - 1, despite using its third string goalie (the first two had stomach viruses), in a very hard fought, intense game.

The defense did a wonderful job of shutting down MTA, minimizing the number of shots on the inexperienced goalie, and the goalie came up big when he had to. As often is the case, OYST, with its great depth and good conditioning, wore down MTA and totally dominated the third period. OYS himself played a very solid game.

OYST is now 11 - 0 with only two games against their crosstown rivals standing in the way of an undefeated regular season and number 1 seed in the playoffs.

Now, to the title of this post. The "gym" at MTA could use an overhaul. The "seats" are window sills. The "penalty box" is a window sill. So, Mr. Joel, how about using some of that $100 million to build a decent gym? That would be much more useful than endowing another couple of goofy chairs at the university (how many chairs does a university need). Instead of chairs for the university, how about seats for the fans at hockey games?

    i hear what ure saying about a sorry gym, but those "chairs" are actually a way to give the Rebbes of the yeshivah some money, which they get very little of from YU as it is. So dont bash the chairs.

    How about scholarships so us young adults don't graduate with tens of thousands of dollars of debt?
