Vinny Saponari and Corey Trivino present "Party Like A Puckstar"

The word is that they were suspended for a reason unrelated to these hot new beats, then they decided to show their skill to the world via Youtube and BarstoolSports.

I still think this is a more embarrassing college hockey performance:

We may have lost the Beanpot...

...but this guy just won in life.

This video is making the rounds among all the major sports blogs on the interweb, and it's an obligation to share it here, since it does involve two BU fans at the Beanpot.

No Beanpot this year, but far more student section hand jobs than the BC section I'm willing to bet.

If anyone has names of these two, now infamous fornicators, let us know.

Wait a minute, BC won? Who knew?

First and foremost, congrats to the Eagles. Three straight national championships in Boston builds this city and region's reputations to unmatched respect levels.

BC won their fourth national championship (BU has five), but really, other than college hockeyheads and BC students and alumni, did anyone really care?

I'm not trying to take away something from the Eagles accomplishment, but it's kind of programmed into my mind to do just that. Unfortunately, I must admit, there shouldn't be a question that BC is indeed the crown jewel of college hockey over the last decade. The championship this season only reinforces that, and the fact they trailed in only 55 seconds in the final 13 games shows how hot they were playing as they usually do in March and April.

That said, let's be realistic - this BC championship sucked compared to BU's in two ways:

1. Our Championship was much better. I'd argue that all our games in the season were much better, but in terms of the drama - ours can't be beat. The ending was unforgettable and made BU's 'ship so much more significant. It was a moment that reappeared on top sports countdowns of the year ad nausea, deceivingly so.

2. BU was the best team all season. BC was the best team for the last month. That's really all that matters when it comes to winning championships (Duke can agree), but BU's team last year will go down as one of the greatest the school has ever produced. I'm not as familiar of BC's history, but I don't think the same can be said of this year's champs.

BCs championships sandwich BU's lone victory of the decade. Years from now hockey fans won't remember a 12-1 margin of victory in the Frozen Four or a 4-1 demolition of Notre Dame in 2008. People will always remember the most absurdly unreal two minutes of hockey of the decade. It's important, as a BU fan, you remember that to deal with the very sigh-worthy reality of BC's championship.

This season sucked on multiple levels for Terrier fans, but look at the positives. We Terriers will always have last year, and 2008-09 still leaves me breathless and speechless, an entire year later, even after BC are the new champions.

But give it up for the Eagles. Or at least give it up for HDJ's favorite Superfan:

That's gotta put a smile on your face, no matter who you cheer for.

Uh-Oh, winless with K-Mac

K-Mac, your newest BU softball player, traveled with the team today to UMass. The team lost 3-0. K-Mac didn't get in, but there's always that chance.

Her GoTerriers.com page is especially interesting:

Basketball jersey and she got her number (22)! Gotta love it.

You have a chance to see the illustrious K-Mac tomorrow afternoon at 4 pm on the softball field against UConn.

Also, how bout those lax ladies? Suck on that 10-3 win, New Hampshire. We reign supreme!

K-Mac: What can't she do??

You heard it here first (or read it here, I guess), that K-Mac truly is a jack-of-all-trades. We already knew what she means to the basketball team and athletic community, but this, this my friends takes it well over the top:

K-Mac is a walk-on for women's basketball. She's now a walk-on for the softball team. I'm going to have to put some hours in, but I'm going to find out if she is indeed the first two-sport-walk-on athlete in the history of BU. Things were strange in the 50s so it's possible that someone has stepped in these territories before.

How did this happen you ask?

Well, despite being nasty and having April Setterlund on the roster, the softball team is hurting. They are injured in all sorts of ways, resulting in a limited (1 player) bench. This does not work in close softball games where you need every body you can get for subbing/running purposes. Most people at BU know of K-Mac's agility and speed (she is a ginger - unusually fast leg movements), so softball coach Shawn Rychcik sent the mandatory email to coach Kelly Greenberg, asking for permission to use the coveted K-Mac. I really think this was more the work of current (injured) softballer, Melanie Delgado who lobbied for both K-Mac and Kat Briggs to join the squad. Then right after meeting with coach Kat remembered she's having surgery in a week and a half. IF ONLY!!

Through luck or the graces of God coach Greenberg agreed and K-Mac worked out with the team today for the first time. Your ass better be at all the remaining softball games for that chance that K-Mac may get in and may steal a base. My god, a BU athlete with a 3-point field goal and a stolen base in a season, what's next Zach Cohen scoring an AHL goal??


Women's Lax to haunt your dreams

For the foreseeable future, or at least until Nick@Nite happens:

BREAKING NEWS: Jack Parker fired!

In a bizarre move made my Superhuman Athletic Director Mike Lynch, Jack Parker has been fired from the men's hockey team. The AD named an immediate successor, the one, the only, JESUS:

Jesus held a small press gathering in his backyard in Pennsylvania, while doing shirtless sit-ups. He was not surprised to be hired and stressed a new dynamic, aggressive weight lifting program. "We might not skate the best, or pass the best, or even score a lot of goals. But gosh darn it, we'll be the HUGEST team out there," Jesus said. "Hockey is 90% intimidation, 5% goalie, 2% drinking abilities, and 2% natural skill, and 1% how well you can pick up chicks. We'll definitely lead the league in intimidation."

In another strange twist to the BU athletic department Jeff Pelage has announced that he'll be stepping off the basketball team to join the hockey team. When Jesus was asked about Pelage's claim he confirmed that Jeff Pelage would be his first line center and probable captain. Asked whether he had ever played ice hockey before, Jeff said that he played sometimes in the summer. It is confirmed that Pelage will not wear a helmet during games and will take any penalties 'the man' tries to enforce on him.

"I'm thrilled to have an African American hockey player on our team," Jesus said. "That'll put people in the seats from Agganis to Indonesia."

To top it all off Jesus immediately announced the team would compete in the Indonesian International Ice Hockey Iguanawana Open. The bi-monthly competition features 128 teams from around the world on an international rink. The team will play in the tournament that begins on August 15.

The grand finale of Jesus' press conference was his presentation of a BU football cookie basket from Cookies by Design.
