So, last night I went to BC women's hockey vs. UNH, where we were appropriately thumped (4-1). But the most jubilant moment EVER occurred just a few hours later as Matt Ryan rallied the football team to a ridiculous, improbable 14-10 win at Lane Stadium. Quite simply, it was the most delirious I have ever been in my life, going from complete and utter heartbreak and shock to absolute glee and pandemonium in a matter of minutes. The only parallel to it was Game 4 of the ALCS in 2004, but at the time I didn't think we could actually win the series, it was just nice to win the game. This was... well... incredible.
After the win, the dorms emptied out in celebration, and my friend Grant led the celebration as he brought his trumpet with him. Fans followed us all the way down to Lower as Grant played 'For Boston' and 'Shipping Up to Boston.' I really can't describe it in words. You had to be there.
