This will be my final article for The D's sports section and with it, I must arrive at the sad but necessary realization that my time in Hanover is almost at an end. I could write some 800-word retrospective on my "Dartmouth experience" but since you'll probably hear or read something like that a million times over the next three weeks, especially if you're a '13, I'll spare you this time.

The NHL playoffs start this week, which means I get to continue one of my favorite spring traditions: jumping on the Boston Bruins bandwagon.

For every person who reaches their goal in sports, there are from 10 to 100 times as many who don't. I am going to look past childhood dreams of winning the Super Bowl or going to the Olympics because, while those pay off for a select few, they are little more than a pipe dream. They might come true once in a blue moon, but since only 53 people win the Super Bowl every year, the probability that you grow up to be one of them is astronomically low.
