Hope is just a set-up for failure!!!!!!!

THE HOCKEY SCHEDULE. Is anyone else excited!? No? Oh.

How 'bout it. I'd certainly refer you immediately to Nov. 3rd's meeting with the Swedish U-20 team as the highlight of the year. Dave Warsofsky knows a little something about beating this team, which is great, because I think he's our only hope at winning...this entire year.

I hope we'll see this at least once?

So what if we lost any talent to the NHL. The loss of last year's captain and 1st round pick Kevin Shattenkirk was clearly nullified by the loss of MVP (most valuable product (of the system)) Colby Cohen. We good. We good.

Other highlights:
The season opens against The University Of Toronto Varsity Blues. The who? Really?

Silly Canadian public schools. They'll never learn. I kinda wish that clip went on for at least...11 minutes.

Hockey in Missouri? The IceBreaker resumes for BU with Holy Cross, Notre Dame, and a guaranteed game against Wisconsin, 2006 national champs.

Hockey in Hoffman Estates, IL on New Year's? The Shillelagh Tournament? What the hell?
'The tournament is named after the shillelagh, a wooden club typically made from blackthorn or oak with a large knob on the end that is associated with Ireland and Irish folklore.'

Cool. I'll pretend I care come January.


The season-ending series, a H/H against Northeastern, should provide a lovely way for BU to back into Home-Ice at the hockey east tournament, 2009 New York Jets style. YAYz!

I'm not bitter about last season. Who said anything about that?

Screenshots from the web

Here's a series of screenshots, BU athletic related, that I've accumulated through the last couple months. Here they are in all their shining glory:

First off, let's all congratulate men's basketball coach Pat Chambers on the birth of his second child on June 7, 2010! A busy life gets busier, but there's no doubt Chambers can handle it all. Now moving onto awful men's basketball coaches, Kevin Broadus everybody:

Seems like someone has been having fun with Broadus' wikipedia. The various times I've checked it out there's been some major, possibly fake alterations to it, namely at the bottom of the above screenshot:

Broadus is also the biggest joke of a coach that ever coached a game. There will be a parade through the state of New York when he finally disappears.

For whatever reason, I'm doubting that this is the work of his editors on his website, KevinBroadus.com. By the way, he's gone crazy and is suing lots of people, for I don't know what. Ghosts maybe?

Now some Facebook fanboy-work:

To be fair, I did too. Next:

Did no one learn anything from Brian McGuirk? Moving on, I found this gem of a photo from an early season women's basketball game, featuring Brochure kid's life goal being achieved by women's basketball coach Kelly Greenberg:

If you're in need of nostaligia here's a shot of the BU basketball fan contingency from the men's first round game against Hartford this past year. The game was a blowout and the last for the UHA head coach, and HD&J pal, Dan Leibovitz. He didn't get fired or anything, but decided to return closer to home and join the UPenn staff:

I play Streak for the Cash on ESPN because it seems like a possible way to make money. I also racked up one of the longest losing streaks in the month of May. And I believe I accomplished an L11 in just five days!:

Finally, this is one of the greatest hockey related pictures I've laid eyes on:


At least someone's employed

Not to say that HD&J aren't, but someone from the BU athletic community is already ballsdeep in basketball. That someone is Carlos Strong, playing down in Puerto Rico:

He looked damn STRONG in that jersey, if I may say so myself. He also put up some solid statistics for a bench player.

Los played his last game as a Terrier on March 24. He was in PR on March 28 to play for Atleticos De San German, appearing in 16 of the team's 29 regular season games. While he wasn't a starter, he was finding consistent time - 13.9 minutes per game.

Come playoff time he was seeing 12 minutes per game, including a 13 point performance in just 16 minutes. None of that was really enough against the Quebradillas Pirates who swept the series against San German, ending on May 29. Qubradillas seems to be the Lakers of the Puerto Rican basketball league - kicking ass and taking names, working their way to a 23-6 record and through the semifinals right now.

Regardless, Los played at a professional level and I'm sure won't be the last Terrier from this past year's team to do so. I'm no basketball scout, but I'm sure Carlos will play somewhere professionally next year. I think he can do better than a U.S. Commonwealth, but only time will tell.
