    And for any BU fans in town, I'm 99% sure there will be a tailgate before the games. I will post any details as I find them out. As some BU fans can attest to (from the F4) last year, it's a fun time.

    The one conflict I've got is that my son has Pinewood Derby races Saturday morning. But anything after that: I'm there!

    I'll keep an eye on the 'Hoven updates. I'm not too cool to admit that I'm excited at the chance to meet . . . some of you.

    I will be stunned if BU comes out of this bracket.
    It is hard to disagree. And less because of who they are playing than because of BU itself. They are .500 since the end of January and 1-5 against teams in the tournament during that span. I don't fault the effort or the coaching too much. For the most part, the team has done its best with what they have. But they just don't have the personnel at this point. Could Millan steal a game? Maybe. Two? Doubtful.

    I'm not taking crazy pills and think BU is in any way a favorite or anything but they certainly have a chance of getting to Tampa. They have a Sr goalie with a ton of experience, you have a captain who has played and scored in a National Championship so there are some intangibles that could help. I have yet to see a team shut down there top line and they have good depth at defense. Again I know it's a longshot but I guess this rambling is to say it might not be as big a longshot as people think.
    Of course we have a chance... even in our recent losses, we have pretty much been in all of the games with our chances to win... will this weekend be the time we turn a couple of those "played hard, fought the good fight near misses" into wins? It could happen. I actually like the fact that we are playing against an opponent / opponents who we are not familiar with from this season and they are not familiar with us...

    That being said, I also think I'd rather be the 3 seed in the east or the midwest, but since that is not where we are lets just play em.... Bring it on.

    Looks like BU game is at 5, right? The Bruins are playing at LA at 9 EST...so pregame show at 8:30. It could be done (unless there's a craptastic spring training game NESN wants to show). I would get in touch with NESN and ask them.

    The Celtics, on the other hand, don't have a game. I would also contact someone at Comcast. If all else fails, try channel 38.

    IIRC, the Merrimack-Notre Dame game from Manchester last year was aired live on Comcast.
    There seems to be NC St. vs. UNC baseball live on NESN, and an MLS game live on CSN ending at 6 PM. Nothing of interest on channel 38.

    Didn't Melrose or Ward laugh that he picked a BU-Miami rematch because Bucci's son goes to Miami? Not because he thinks BU has a shot, but if Miami goes, then why not have that rematch in the final.

    Any BU fans here that are not going willing to lend me a jersey? I've been asked to bring one and I don't think the jerseys I have will fit this person.
