Frozen Four: Where Eagles Soar

You have to excuse my grammatically-flawed prior post. I am on painkillers a couple of days after achilles tendon reconstruction surgery. But the title surely has made things feel better in a hurry!

Frozen Four: Where Eagles Soar

Tahoemoj - great showing by Miami in the regionals. BC was taken to its limit, for sure. But how ya like my prediction NOW? Jerry York is all class, Nathan Gerbe is unbelievable in the clutch, and John Muse has icewater running through its veins. What an incredible season to take it for us BC fans. CONGRATS.

NCAA Hockey Brackets Revealed

"Beatable" to me implies "soft" or not that good. I.E., Wisconsin is certainly beatable, even on hime ice.

NCAA Hockey Brackets Revealed

BC is never "beatable" in the NCAAs. Look at their record from 1998 on. When they do lose, it's in a very tight game to a great team (with the 2005 loss as the exception). BC has never lost in the first round under Jerry York, and I doubt this is going to be the year that breaks that streak (although I respect the Gopher program tremendously). BC is firing on all cylinders right now, dominating UNH in the second half of the 3OT classic on Friday night, even in spite of heavily slanted officiating, John Muse getting abused, and UNH coming out very tough. BC then cakewalks a decent Vermont team with tired legs. The Gophers are also playing excellent hockey (I've managed to catch most of their recent games), so this one should be a barnburner in Worcester. I think that North Dakota is the real monster in this tourney. They have it all, from top to bottom. If I had to bet money, I'd pick the Sioux to win it all (even though my pick is a homer pro-BC call on this board).

NCAA Hockey Brackets Revealed

Tahoemoj, one thing we can agree upon is that Miami has been treated very unfairly these past 3 seasons by always being sent east into a lion's den of one of the hockey east power teams. They deserved to be treated better each time (and probably should have had a #1 seed two years ago). It's almost as if the Miami hockey program, being a new kid on the national contender block, is being "hazed" by the tournament committee. To put Miami in BC's bracket for 3 years running is downright cruel, to boot. You know that BC comes strong each and every postseason (led by one of the icons of NCAA coaching in any sport, never loses a first round game, usually gets to Frozen Four, and each time they lose, save for North Dakota in 2005, they are a very tough out). But hey, you get a chance to take some revenge for the last two seasons - I'm pretty sure you won't get it one way or the other, but good luck to you anyway, my friend. One thing I have to say - I was pleasantly surprised by Miami's fan support the past two seasons at the regionals, and I'm sure that this coming weekend will be no different.

IMO, the committee should just throw out the PWR when a losing team is being considered. No way a losing team belongs in this field of 16! Mankato got a raw deal. On with the predictions. Remember, BC never loses in the first round and almost always gets to the Frozen Four. They have another goalie who is going to be a horse all 4 seasons. Also remember that Michigan is half-freshmen. I'm biased, BIG TIME, but here it goes: Miami over Air Force - Air Force puts up a fight, but loses in end BC over MN - best first round game of the tourney BC over Miami (for the third year in a row - poor Miami) ND over Princeton - 2 goal win Denver over Wisconsin - blowout ND over Denver in a classic Michigan over Niagara - blowout SCSU over Clarkson - blowout SCSU in a shocker! New Hampshire over ND - OT win CC over MSU - great matchup CC knocks off the post-season Mildcats rather easily FROZEN FOUR: BC over North Dakota in an OT classic CC blows out SCSU BC by 2 goals over CC to win the national title. John Muse is MVP.

NCAA tourney is the best, but it could be even better.

What other "Three Weeks of Hoops" is the NCAA Tournament competing against? The Pan-Am games? I'll take the next three weeks (exluding the off week in early April) of college hockey any day over the NCAA tournament. The conference tournament semis, finals, and the NCAAH tournament are my favorite few weeks in sports. At least you have to have a great season to even get into the hockey tournament. But yet, like some one said, different strokes for different folks.

Giants Win Superbowl!

As a lifelong Giants fan, it still hasn't hit me. We won????? Good lord. Has to be one of the most memorable non-family events of my life. Whoah!

Patriots advance to their 4th Superbowl in 7 years.

I'm a 31yo Giants fan, but Tom Brady is already the greatest QB of all time. Putting him in a conversation with Joe Montana is an insult to Tom Brady. No one belongs in that "conversation" other than Brady - no QB in the history of pro football is on his level. If you ran an experiment and switched the teams / eras that Brady and Montana played in, I'm am 100% confident that Brady's stats and win totals would far surpass Montana's, and yes that's saying something considering the success of the Montana-era 49ers. As for my G-men - they proved they could play with the Pats. If they can somehow get an outstanding pash rush and / or some secondary help, in addition to putting up a lot of points, then they MIGHT have a puncher's chance to win. Sheesh, a lot of variables there just to get to a puncher's chance, but you can't argue with how great the Pats are this season. Let's not forget that it was cold during the first Giants / Pats meeting - the ideal conditions at the Super Bowl weigh heavily in favor of the Pats.

Giants top Buccaneers,

I believe that the Colts and Pats will win via blowouts this weekend, whereas both NFC games are truly up for grabs. If the Giants D can get pressure on Romo, I think that the Giants pull it off. The Seahawks secondary delivered at home - now can they come through on the frozen tundra? The 'Hawks secondary will be the determinative factor in that contest, I believe.

Ice Bowl is one for the ages

I'm a huge college football fan, but once I quickly checked into this game to see how it was going during its second period, I was glued to it for the remainder of the game! This game seemed like it "mattered," ironically enough, more than the Jan. 1 bowl games. I watched to the end and only occassionally flipped to NCAAF to keep updated on what was going on. BTW, I also am sick of Sidney Crosby being shoved down every one's throats. I'm starting to REALLY dislike the guy solely because of his over-exposure, and that's too bad.

Chris Bosh

He deserves a vote just for his creativity alone, nevermind his awesome play. I was not going to vote for the NBA All-Stars this year, but now I will go and vote just because I want to cast one for Mr. Bosh. The NBA needs more guys like Chris Bosh.

Gaborik issues public apology to fantasy owners

But don't forget, he will try to help them out "when he can." Hillarious!!! This guy just became one of my favorite players.

Rudy Giuliani, Red Sox Fan

The point is that Rudy appeared to be a straight shooter who actually was less political than most of the other candidates. With this latest line about the Red Sox, we can't be so sure about that. And besides, what REAL Yankees fan would EVER root for the Red Sox??? I'm not a Yanks fan, but as a Rangers fan, I would NEVER EVER root for the Islanders. As a BC fan, I'd NEVER EVER root for BU, Notre Dame, or UCONN. Etc. etc. etc. You don't root for your hated rivals. Seems like Rudy, in an attempt to get elected, is losing what was going to make him electable in the first place!
