One of my favorite sayings that a team has adopted as their slogan is “Burn the Boats.” The article linked below details how the 2009 National Champion Boston University hockey team came to adopt the motto.
“That’s what our mentality was all year,” the B.U. captain Matt Gilroy said. “It doesn’t matter who we were, we were going to be a team. We would burn the boats every time we went out there together. That’s a shirt that I’m going to keep forever it means something special.”
