My latest on the Examiner is a game preview for tonight’s New York Titans-Boston Blazers National Lacrosse League matchup. I’m actually pretty proud of the piece, especially the cute title I gave my notes section, “Sticks and Shots.” I think it’s so cute I may just have to mention it in my application to the Masters in Sports Journalism program I’m sweating over at the moment (don’t worry, BUers – it’s a part-time program, I am not going anywhere.)
So if you are looking to kill time this Saturday and want to learn more about what is sure to be a fun, offensively powered lacrosse match-up, check it out.
Oh, the Superfans.
They wear mustard colored cheap t-shirts with burgundy writing, either given out or sold by their bookstore. Maybe 2% of them own hockey jerseys. And if the hockey team is playing at the same time as their football or basketball team, they magically dissapear.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the Boston College Superfans.
The Superfans, or Stuperfans, or whatever you wish to refer to them as, are oft-complained about. I really don’t dislike them, I’m just amazed at their…indifference? Lack of jerseys? Bandwagon jumping? Pep band’s rendition of Ridin’ Dirty by Chamillionaire? (You have not lived until you’ve heard a tuba blast out the first few lines of that song. Really. It’s made my Beanpot the last two years.)
I come to you this evening to write the only piece of blog-o-sphere not to mention tomorrow’s US Presidential Election. Because, frankly, to be all Negative Nellie about it, it won’t matter who the heck is elected President tomorrow – America is screwed either way because there is not a single politician who exists who is stand-up and honest.
But enough about my political thoughts. I come to you today with links to articles that also have nothing to do with politics, because there will be a point sometime on Tuesday where you are going to want to bang your head against the wall if you hear one more iota about the election:

A bit of self promotion for a moment: I have recently become a lacrosse writer for Examiner Boston, a growing online news page. Everyone jump up and do a happy dance with me!
So in addition to maintaining this blog (which I am trying to do more things with in the coming weeks, like move to an actual factual page of its own), I will also be writing at least three articles a week for the Examiner. You’ll be able to find my articles here. I’ll also add this link to the blogroll on the side of the page.
