I have made time, meanwhile, to pace and swear and sweat while watching the Bruins' early regular season games, and to prepare for yet another exciting weekend in the world of BC athletics.
The women's hockey team has two games this weekend, a key conference matchup with Providence on Saturday and a not-so-marquee non-conference game sunday against Quinnipiac. The men are in action Friday night, hosting #11 Vermont on a nationally-televised game on ESPNU.
Women's soccer hosts Maryland tomorrow night in yet another measuring stick game for the Eagles. Field Hockey is at Harvard tonight. And the men's soccer team takes on national champion Wake Forest on Saturday night in Winston Salem.
Also, there is a football game.
Predictions for everything + previews of the hockey games forthcoming.
