I went to a hippie college. We didn't have fraternities and sororities. We didn't even have sports teams. We were an unworldly bunch who were frequently to be found in the library, working on class stuff, of a Saturday afternoon. Or out banding seabirds, for the more field-biology-oriented types.

But there was a neighborhood soccer league. Enough people from my college joined that eventually there was a whole team formed of college hippies. They were vaguely aware there was a convention of naming sports teams after fierce, impressive predators: Lions or Tigers or Bears.

The college was in Maine.

The team name was the Blackflies.
