My original intent for this blog was to post as many pictures as possible. For some reason, it hasn't quite happened (usually it's because I'm too lazy to upload my pictures). I did some binge uploading tonight and have a few to share.
BC-Lowell hockey series:
Before the game, staff members brought out the Beanpot so that the first few fans in the arena could take pictures with it. It was kind of like meeting a celebrity.
Did I ever mention that I'm not a big fan of the seats they stick students in? This is what most of the game looks like:
After the disappointing home loss, I made the trip with my father out to Lowell the next night to see BC win 5-2 at the Tsongas Arena.
I love Tsongas. I think it kind of pulls off the Conte effect (antiseptic, a little boring, but nice, aesthetically pleasing, and with modern amenities) with the added benefit of having much, much better sightlines for hockey, cheaper prices, and more comfortable seats.

Tyrese " BALLIN' " Rice handling the ball
The infamous a-hole ArenaCop (I'm not even going to go into it on here, not now)
GT having an easy go of it on offense (I can only assume they scored on this possession)
From there, I dashed through the rain (literally) to get to my FAVORITE VENUE IN SPORTS, Northeastern's Matthews Arena, for the BC @ NU regular season men's hockey finale.
Is this a sweet view or what?
Hey, the men's hockey and men's hoop teams are both on one-game winning streaks at the moment. Good vibes, right?
