Going For Two: All-Star games are anything but that

Going For Two: All-Star games are anything but that

This past Sunday, sports fans across the world were treated to two spectacles that didn’t help American sports become more appealing to the rest of the world: the NHL All-Star Game and the Pro Bowl. All-Star Games as a whole have become a largely futile attempt by the upper echelon of professional sports marketing to drum up both interest and […]

Women’s basketball set for Navy matchup at Case Gym

In the middle of a four-game losing streak, the Boston University women’s basketball team will look to halt the season’s futility when it plays host to the United States Naval Academy Thursday at Case Gym. BU (1-19, 1-8 Patriot League) has failed to capture a second victory since its 63-59 triumph over American University on Jan. 13, while Navy (10-10, […]

Kendall Coyne proves too much for women’s hockey in Beanpot

Women’s hockey falls short in Beanpot Tournament against Northeastern

Despite a strong effort as the last few minutes ticked away Tuesday night at Walter Brown Arena, the Boston University women’s hockey team’s Beanpot Tournament aspirations fell just short. The Terriers (17-10-2, 14-4-2 Hockey East) couldn’t stage a complete comeback effort against Northeastern University, falling 3-2 to their crosstown rivals. “A great hockey game, I thought,” said BU head coach Brian Durocher. […]

Sports Comedy Corner: How Carolina dominated this NFL season

Sports Comedy Corner: How Carolina dominated this NFL season

The Super Bowl seems a bit anticlimactic this year following the epic New England Patriots versus Denver Broncos AFC Championship game. We expected Tom Brady to pursue his fifth ring, but instead we’re left with Peyton Manning on his last leg against MVP frontrunner Cam Newton. This battle between the aging legend and the young up-and-comer has been the accepted […]

No. 9 men’s hockey sweeps aside Northeastern in Beanpot semifinal 

The No. 9 Boston University men’s hockey team seemingly controlled every part of its Monday night Beanpot Tournament encounter with Northeastern University, as it skated to a 3-1 win over its city rival.  However, there were moments in which the momentum looked to have changed hands, as center John Stevens rebounded in his eight goal of the year with 3:12 […]

Charlie McAvoy shows growth in Northeastern Beanpot clash

Senior assistant captain Danny O’Regan had just crossed the blue line into the middle of the attacking zone roughly 16:30 into the first period. With defenseman Jarrett Fennell directly in front of him, the winger opted to drop the puck off for freshman defenseman Charlie McAvoy, who was supporting him down the right side instead of trying to take it […]

Fish and Chipps: The case against cheerleading

Fish and Chipps: The case against cheerleading

Every time I’m driving to a sporting event, I can’t help but think to myself, “Gosh, I wonder if the blonde cheerleader in the back corner of the stadium behind the end zone who I can’t see from my top row seat is going to land her running tuck tonight.” Nah, I’m just messing. I’ll admit, I’ve often wondered if […]
