BU Central

Man, I’ve taken a long break from this site… a belated welcome back to all the college kids—I almost forgot about all of you.

And since it’s the new school year, it’s also time for BU Central to start up. They host bands, comedians and other fun stuff that we never had during our years there.

It makes me laugh when they pop up on Sirius Left of Center, as “up-and-coming”.



I really don’t get what the buzz is about, but, I have to respect their live act. I’ve never seen a room of kids go that apeshit over ukuleles.


Other shows will be posted on their website, but a BU ID required to get in.

Hockey East Champs

Hockey East ChampsMy alma mater Boston University clinched the Hockey East Championship this past Saturday, winning in 2-1 OT against Boston College. Now, they’re off to the NCAA tournament, ranked #1 in the nation. They haven’t done that since 1997, when I was a sophomore, and had nothing better to do on Friday nights than go watch the games.

And, if that wasn’t enough, a guy who played on that 1997 team, Chris Drury, is captaining my hometown Buffalo Sabres this season. They’re near the top of the conference standings, and one of the most exciting young teams to watch. We’ve got seats at the Garden for Saturday night’s matchup with the Bruins.

BC sucks!
