5 PM against Harvard is NU's next game so I figured this thread needed to be made. You'd think NU vs. BC would be the final but then again you'd think NU would have won a 4 team tournament once in the last 25 years.

P.S. Over/under how many times we hear "throw out the records" for BU/BC: +/- 122.5

I don't think you will be hearing that from any of the BU fans who have been closely following this team.

Nothing is impossible, but it seems highly unlikely… my memory is that in those past cases, BU was not struggling quite this much, and BC was not quite as good / deep / talented as they seem to be this year.

Our hope is to play a game similar to what we did at Conte last week, except a couple of our guys are more healthy and that our goalie plays over his head a little bit more.

Who knows, maybe we can pull off a neutral zone trap type of thing ala hockey east quarters 2004.

My best guess though is that I'll have some good seats available to the highest bidder for the 2nd monday.

Wish Mook a Happy New Year and give him false hopes ) He's a fellow Asian ) Am I his alter ego ?

BC sucked around 1994 and upset Harvard at the old "Garden." That was about it for BC highlights that year ) Mook cares it's just that he thinks his team has no chance this year. I used to dread watching the Beanpot when they dominated the BU invitational.

Harvard will give NU fits. That's all I know for gm 1.

Is Benedetto reffing?
Does Quinn pay as much as Jackie? ;)
Will BU have only 16 skaters?
How many BC goals will be disallowed?

Throw out the records for this one folks. :p

How many times will the net be dislodged at the most inappropriate time for the opposing team ?

Haha... good one. :D

But that trait seems to have shifted to Notre Dame this season. ;)

BTW, What is the record of how many wins each team has in the Beanpot? how many beanpot titles for each school. Obviously, BU Has the most wins regarding Beanpot titles.

Assuming even teams, the chances of a team losing 25 straight Beanpots (Beanspot?) is literally 1 in 1,350.

Every year I do the math and can't get over the mind-numbing futility.

BC wins its fifth in a row. Next...

Wait, they still play this tournament? Just give it to BC and save us all the time and money.

It is unreal. You would figure every team would win one at least every 15 years, but going on 25 years?!?!? The way BC is playing, the other 3 don't have a chance.

Year of the Horse. Horse starts with H. Harvard starts with H. Sounds auspicious to me!

I collected over the years and don't need everyone of them but I'm sure someone would like one. I just got one for a trade and cash that I liked. One of my favorites is the LSSU with the anchor in front.

I sold a nice BU one with #6 on it for a reasonable price to a BU fan. I believe #6 is JP's number.

Apples and oranges I know, but to be honest after about 25 minutes last year in the HE semis I thought you guys had no shot as well.
