New on the Examiner: Titans and Blazers meet up for Blazers’ first NLL regular season game

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.

Calling Out the Superfans and the Tsongas Arena Shopping Cart

Oh, the Superfans.

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.)

Break Glass if Sick of Election Talk: Your Sports Link-o-Rama

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:

Someone Decided That I May In Fact Be A Good Writer

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.
