Is It Ironic, Or Am I As Dumb As Alanis Morisette?


Is it ironic that Boston College will fire Jackoffzinski if he takes an interview with the Jets, which shows “disloyalty,” when only a few years back BC left the Big East for ASS Conference?

Loaylty? Are you fucking kidding me? The Big East kept you relevant when your programs sucked. I hope you fire him and don’t win a game next year but the ASS sucks so they could luck into winning 10 games.

Whether it is ironic or not, Gene DeFilippo (pictured above) is an asshole and should be kicked in the taint everyday. Oh yeah, I hope Jared Dudley is bald and homeless somewhere. I hate that guy.

I could not find the Ed Hill catch so enjoy Angel Estrada destroying a BC receiver.

Boston Collge is Popular

Boston College is a big-time player in the Boston sports scene. Just last night, Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon introduced the Eagles during the ESPN telecast. One time, BC managed to make the third page of the Boston Globe sports section. Bob Ryan even thought about going to one of their games once.

To celebrate just how crazy Bostonians are over Boston College football, I present this ranking of just how much Boston loves each of their sports teams:

  1. Boston College Red Sox
  2. Boston College Patriots
  3. Boston College Celtics
  4. Boston College Bruins
  5. Boston College Revolution (MLS)
  6. Boston College the marathon
  7. Boston College chowder
  8. Boston College Matt Damon
  9. Boston College Harvard football
  10. Boston College tea parties
  11. Boston College Harvard crew
  12. Boston College Canons (Major League Lacrosse)
  13. Boston College The Big Dig
  14. Boston College the Yankees
  15. Boston College
  16. Ben Affleck

So, as you can see, Boston College is very popular. In fact, after tonight’s ugly win, they might actually move behind Ben Affleck. Congratulations Eagles. Keep telling yourself you matter.

Snatching Defeat From The Jaws Of Victory

Well, I didn’t see that one coming. I would like to commend Virginia Tech on assuming the fetal position towards the end of the game. They really did that better than I think any other team could.

Couple things from the broadcast:

  • Stop calling a 25/52 performance with 2 INTs “Heisman worthy.” Bullshit. BC couldn’t do a thing on offense for 55 minutes. Then, Tech goes into the prevent and Matt Ryan wins the Heisman. Tech gave that away, BC didn’t win it. If anyone tries to tell me otherwise, I’ll punch them right in the throat.
  • I’m paraphrasing here, but Todd Blackledge couldn’t tell us enough that VT’s program was built on a team atmosphere, devoid of any superstars. Oh really? What was Tech before Michael Vick? Oh, you hadn’t heard of them before that? Me neither.
  • After tonight’s putrid performance, I am convinced that BC will lose again this season. #2 team in the country? Yeah, right. Maybe top 15, but nothing better than that.

The Apocalypse of Hate

Yes, that’s right, it’s the battle for the Big EAST championship tonight. Wait, no, that can’t be right, not if Boston College is involved. What conference championship could BC contend for? Hmmmm. Oh right, the ACC.

Yes folks, it’s BC @ Virginia Tech tonight for the lead in the vaunted, heralded, and acclaimed Atlantic Coast Conference. If you’re hoping for a meteor to hit Lane Stadium tonight, you have only scant few minutes left.

As far as the Mountaineers stance on this game, we have to be buying Virginia Tech tonight. Boston College is the stronger team with the easier schedule to end the season. Virginia Tech, on the other hand, has no offensive line (and no QB tonight) and a remaining trip to UVA.

In the end, though, it’s going to be tough to cheer for any of these teams. Usually when that happens, I just put money on the game and cheer for that. Unfortunately, I’m not sure I particularly like either team tonight. With Tyrod Taylor, VT looked to be the player here. With Sean Glennon, it looks like any team but VT.

My advice? Drink heavily.

Does Anybody Really Miss Boston College?

Talk about your all-time backfires.

Poor, poor Boston College. They had such high hopes. Moving from the Big EAST to ACC was going to be a move to the big time. Finally, they could use their Boston leverage to tap the biggest markets in collegiate sports, like Clemson, SC or Charlottesville, VA. How could this go wrong?

Well, apparently, a lot of ways.

One, Boston is not as close to Miami, Atlanta, Clemson, or well, the entire South, as one may have thought. It turns out it’s in Massachusetts, which is in the North. New England, to be more precise. Who knew? Boston College sure didn’t. They went gung-ho into a conference where the closest school is outside of Washington, DC. Whoops.

Two, the move was supposed to open up the fertile recruiting ground of Florida. Boy did it ever. Last year, they signed THREE players from the Sunshine State. 3! What a coup. Unfortunately, their new-found dominance of Florida recruiting (remember, they signed 3 players) has cost them their “stronghold” in Northeast recruiting. These shrewd moves resulted in the 50th best recruiting class in the nation. Better than average, yay!

And third, and probably the most-telling of all, their coach made one of the biggest lateral moves in the history of college football. Or at least it seemed like a lateral move. Tom O’Brien left the football mecca of Boston College for the football mecca of NC State. Why? At first I thought he might be getting better health benefits in Raleigh. But then I thought about it. BC is a sinking ship. What seems like a lateral move now will in a few years look like an upward leap. Not good for BC.

Lastly, and this has nothing to do with the ACC, Boston College fans can’t tailgate. This is true for two reasons: 1) as their hoity toity wine and cheese alumni base would suggest, their genetics simply won’t allow themselves the disrespect of tailgating; and 2) they’re actually not allowed to. You see, Boston College has restricted tailgating in most of its parking lots. Two unfortunate, less than drunken trips to WVU-BC games have taught me this. I was sober and bitter (which usually go together).

All in all, BC is screwed. Even if they win, no one seems to care in Boston. Their coach is gone. Eventually, the money will start to dry up from boosters and they’ll be forced to fix their own games to pay for recruiting those 3 players in Florida. Luckily, the 30,000 fans that show up will be too busy sitting on their hands to notice.
