Charlie Davies didn't really earn himself many supporters on Saturday night during the US's 1-0 win over Honduras in Olympic qualifying, as he missed a penalty kick late in the first half. (I wonder how anyone ever misses a penalty kick in soccer.)
Actual text message I received from a friend (obviously, not a BC fan): "Charlie Davies is fucking worthless, he just missed a fucking penalty."
He semi-redeemed himself later in the game, earning another penalty kick in the 2nd half which he wisely elected not to take, letting Eddie Gaven do the honors of stuffing it home instead.
It appears that Charlie has some sort of Swedish admirer, as whoever made this YouTube video chose Alicia Keys' "No One" as the background music to this compilation of Davies highlights from his club team, Hammarby IF. Hooray for the Boston College shoutout in Swedish!
Aren't BC's soccer jerseys sweet? I would buy one if they sold them at the bookstore.
On another non-hockey note, the baseball team took 2-of-3 from #24 Clemson this weekend. That's awesome for them. However, my rule of 'as long as I'm being pelted by sleet/snow/freezing rain, I can't really think too much about baseball' continues to apply here. I'm sure I'll get into it once the home ACC season cranks up.
