Good Bye Holy Land

Postby bluegrass » Tue Nov 07, 2017 7:59 am

I guess the powers that be decided that calling the student section The Holy Land was offensive to some people.Apparently there are those who think it brought back memories of the Crusades and might be threatening to some groups.I thought it was kind of a stupid name but now I kind of like it.

And here I thought it was a play Xavier's fans, as they ramble through life, keeping a eye on Providence's Dunkin' Donuts Center.

Glad the name is gone because it was awful. Too bad the reason is silly. What about D'Artagnan's Den?

Great News....just Google "holy land" and it is easy to understand why this was a very poor name for our great student cheering section. Now lets select a name for our Cintas Cheering Section that complements the great energy,passion,hard work and desire to achieve success of our student athletes, spirit groups,alums and fans...ho Xavier!!

Why aren't they just called Section X? Or Xavier's Mutants? Get Marvel to sponsor them.
