Re: POPE FRANCIS TO NATIONALS

I have to agree with the comment about making a movie about them. Heard rumblings of this after the big win. Rags to riches story, scenes shot outside the Mardi Gras, shots of the busy casino. Wow, this would be a great one to watch, Netflix here we come. An American victory!! Seriously though, the team picked up steam for the final stretch. No easy task winning the National tournament, especially with all the powerhouses in the mid west falling to the Pope. Pope kept grinding until they got the banner. only thing that stinks is COVID will hamper the parade they would normally have for such an accomplishment. I think it’s great that they are planning a toned down version in the Olympia parking lot. Good job kids. 👏

What would Tabb charge for that? I hear the Pics are the Best Jr Program in the country now also! Western Ma just blowing up with hockey talent..the new hockey hot bed! So the true path is, Holy Name-Rifles-Pope-Pics-D1-NHL! Who knew?

This is what is wrong with Nattys.

Pope Francis is a national champion.

Yet got blanked twice and lost three time to another team in Mass ?

How does that make any sense ?
Talked about this in earlier posts. PF rested their horses in those losses.

Re: POPE FRANCIS TO NATIONALS

There's only 1 horse buddy, and he was present and accounted for. Excellent player! However, it appears the horse will be leaving the barn and then what??? Thump city...

Re: POPE FRANCIS TO NATIONALS

Would be funny if he went to Dexter!:grimacing:

Re: POPE FRANCIS TO NATIONALS

OMG! School had a welcome party/ parade for them today and a Breakfast with Congressman and others. How is Foley doing this with a straight face? You win the weakest tournament in forever because of Covid and you celebrate like its the cup. Embarrassing!

Re: POPE FRANCIS TO NATIONALS

Embarrassing for PF.

Thank God the real USA Hockey U18 championships are this week.

Re: POPE FRANCIS TO NATIONALS

I know how hard it is to accept that PF is the National champ, best prep team in the country. You and I both know they would March right through the u18 tnmt as well. Can’t you just admit they are better than all the other prep teams? This one is obvious. In every game this year, PF had the top 2, sometimes top 3 players on the ice. Stop the jealousy.

Re: POPE FRANCIS TO NATIONALS

How does winning High School Nationals make you the top Prep School team in the country, just wondering? Wouldn't you have had to win the Prep School nationals for that? Or atleast beaten an actual prep school?

Prep school teams (including the academy model teams) play in the U-18 national tournament. They must have sent you the wrong invite.

Heard a pretty heated debate yesterday at the Olympia about how the PF team would do against the U18 USA team playing this week. Good arguments made for both sides. I'm on the fence.

-5 POINTS! USNTDP that would be. No inflated grades at PF

Best catholic school in Mass and possibly best in the country. Not at the same level with NEPSAC schools.

Re: POPE FRANCIS TO NATIONALS

I was thinking of pulling my kid out of his prep and put him at Pope for next year, do they Billet?

Is team staying together for Chowder Cup?
My guess is there may be a team at the CC that could compete with the powerhouse
