Tuesday’s Take: Heisman Mistake

So, I made a mistake. That’s refreshing to hear from a sports columnist in this town, isn’t it? It was in the Nov. 13 issue of The Daily Free Press, while assessing the Heisman candidates that I wrote: “Let me tell you, it’s a little bit soon to be calling Johnny Manziel anything other than Johnny Manziel. Not Johnny Football […]

The Empty Net: Sweet, dude

When I was in seventh grade, my friends and I discovered a strange, but at the time hilarious (to us) prank that took the school cafeteria by storm. All of us had to wear plain, white uniform shirts to school every day. They stained very easily. Any sort of little blemish would boldly stand out on the boring white button-downs. […]

Tuesday’s Take: Going bowling

It’s bowl time! No, not that kind. Rather, college bowl season is upon us. Though, I guess the two go hand in hand. One of the best stories out of the bowl matchup assignments has to be Northern Illinois getting into the Orange Bowl. Let me just put this out there, the way they determine who gets a bowl matchup […]

High tide

My senior year of high school I took a class on money management, titled “Personal Finance.” The class was meant to wet our pallet to the world of finance and the big, bad economic monster that we constantly heard reporters and our parents talking about. By no means did this class make me an economic expert — or even economically literate […]

Spaz out

BC sucks! But you already knew that. The school confirmed that they don’t play so good this past weekend when they dismissed head football coach Frank Spaziani. Spaziani led a dismal couple of seasons as head coach, bottoming out at a 22-29 record with the Eagles. Spaziani had been with BC for 16 years, head coach for the last four […]

TUESDAY’S TAKE: Turkey day pigskin

Turkey day football. It’s almost as old a tradition as Thanksgiving itself. Thanksgiving and football just go so well together. Like peanut butter and jelly. Or vodka and Red Bull. Or turkey and stuffing. Football games on Thanksgiving date back to before professional football was even formed. Whether it’s a high school rivalry, a college tradition, a family exhibition match […]

An open letter to diehards

Sunday night was the main event, the big show, the burrito supreme — when is Boston University getting that Taco Bell? BU took to the ice against BC. “Oh. My. Gosh. You aren’t going to the BC game?” I heard freshmen girls say to other freshmen girls all week. “Why does everyone hate BC so much?” said one pal to […]

TUESDAY’S TAKE: Who cares about the Heisman?

Who’s going to win the Heisman trophy? That seems like all anybody is talking about after this weekend of college football. A couple of big games, an Alabama loss and all of a sudden, we’re talking about who will win college football’s most coveted prize. There are some interesting candidates out there, so I’ll go through the motions and entertain […]

The Empty Net: Hope and change

So, another season of Boston University basketball opens up Friday night. This one, however, will possess a tainted air, as the Terriers have been banned from America East postseason play — the America East tournament. Of course this is disappointing for fans in the short term.  Disappointment, of course, leads to frustration, sometimes anger. We create villains in our mind […]

Tuesday’s Take: The Holy War

The Holy War comes to Boston this week. No, not the stuff that’s going on in the Middle East. College football! Yes, BU students, there is such a sport that’s played at the collegiate level each week. I don’t like to think of BU as not having a team, rather I like to think of BU as being undefeated since […]
