We Were Merely Freshman

This year, Boston University has a corps of nine freshman looking to make their mark on the Terriers and Hockey East.  The five forwards, two defensemen and two goaltenders come to Comm Ave. with very high expectations. No doubt the story of the season will be the two freshman goaltenders – Matt O’Connor and Sean […]

You’re All I Need To Get By

For weeks now, I’ve been wishing and hoping and praying (and sticking pins in my Gary Bettman voodoo doll) that this ridiculous lockout would come to an end. With no foreseeable resolution in sight, I have to focus my hockey attention elsewhere…for the sake of my own mental health and for those around me. Luckily, Sunday was […]

Eskimo Kisses

With a NHL lockout looming, we have a feeling that we’re going to be watching a lot more college hockey this season. I’ve been a BU season ticket holder for years now, so I’ve always been a big fan of the college game.  There are so many great reasons to watch college hockey (especially BU), […]

We Were Only Freshmen

Chuck and I may have had a class with Chris Drury at BU our freshman year.  No one remembers for sure.  We obviously learned a lot in “Rocks for Jocks” or whatever we were studying, and that knowledge comes in handy today when identifying the sediment strata of the landscape in pictures of Jonathan Toews […]

We must protect this house.

The Canucks want us to hate them.  I mean Kesler keeps trying to be cute, but the other guys are biting and concussing and all kinds of crap.  Today, the final straw: Get ‘em, Bs.  Do it for Chuck.  She’ll be the one in the Seguin jersey tied to a seat in the club level.

Back in da day: Timmy and Martin

In 1996, Pants and I were juniors in high school.  She had a curly afro and I had reaaaally long hair and wore Doc Martens. In 1996, the […]

The Beanpot – aka the BU Invitational

For the first and second Mondays of February, the four Boston* college hockey teams – Harvard, Northeastern, Boston College, and Boston University – take part in the Beanpot Tournament.  This special hockey tournament has grown to be one of the most unique and anticipated college sporting events in the country. Winning the silver pot of Boston baked beans is a […]

Hockey Memories of Section 8

As a hockey fan living in New England, it is virtually impossible not to be a fan of or follow college hockey.  After all, Hockey East is arguably THE most competitive conference in Division I college hockey.  Since 1993, Hockey East teams have won 7 National Championships (and the last 3 in a row!) Can […]
