What is with some bloggers, right?
Like keep your blog up to date, are you kidding me?
You can't go weeks without a new post, that's just straight up disrespectful to readers. People wanna hear your opinions on inane bullshit. Get with the program.
Cut the crap, bloggers.

You know what's better than 1 game 7? 2 game 7's. Tonight the Sabres and Flyers do battle at the Wells Fargo Center at 7:30, and then the Blackhawks try to pull off an improbable comeback from down 0-3 to steal the series from Vancouver in Rogers Arena at 10:00.
Boston College fans have an easy rooting interest in both games, as two key pieces of the Eagles' 2008 National Championship team, Nate Gerbe and Ben Smith, are in the line-up and are big contributors for the Sabres and Blackhawks respectively.
Gerbe puts in the second goal and Smith nets the third.
Gerbe has scored twice so far in the series against the Flyers. Smith, a rookie who has as many playoff starts as regular season starts, has one-upped his former teammate with 3 goals against the Canucks, including the game winner over Roberto Luongo,who is doing his best to give the series away, in game 6.
I see both Eagles moving on. Shaky goaltending from the Canucks and Flyers give the 'Hawks and Sabres the upper hand despite both playing on the road. Hopefully both Eagles see the second round.
Honestly how good was Gerbe though?

Yesterday the crew and I were playing some routine FIFA (concentrating more on perfecting our celebrations than the actual game, of course) when I felt this surge of confidence start running through my veins. I just felt flat-out ballsy. And as Mr. Brightside can tell you, this is when even the best of men make some of the worst bets in life.
Now I kept in mind Brightside's recent wager over lefty, so I kept my cool and only placed a "gentlemen's bet" with our buddy Lurker.
I bet that I would put up 14 goals on him in FIFA if he let me play as the "Classic XI" team.
Any regular FIFA player knows that putting up 14 goals in a game in any situation is not an easy task, no matter what the matchup. Things just have to flow for you. You need absolute perfection.
Normally, a gentlemen's bet isn't much to worry about. It's just for bragging rights and such, but this case was different. I was adamant about it, to the point of obscene cockiness. But there's no going back now.
Lefty's gonna be safe, but all of my dignity and respect is on the line here people. Say a prayer.

Before that, J. Cole and Wale will be performing at BC Friday night, and White Panda will be doing a mashup show Sunday evening (it sounds fancy).
Preceding all of this action is an event that will no doubt start off the weekend in the right manner. Likuid Sound (that "k" just came out of no where!) is hosting a party tomorrow night at Who's On First? over by Fenway sponsored by Red Bull Records. The theme is retro marathon so I have an excuse to break out the short-shorts and headband. Tickets are sold out so you might have to look on the event page to find someone selling a ticket. If you can't get your hands on one for this event, I hope you guys keep an eye out for Likuid Sound because they always throw down hard with some great music at great venues and hopefully you'll be able to hit up their next event. Spread the word, they're gunna be HUGE.
ps: i love Taylor Stockton, no homo
There are a lot of things I love about Boston; Bodega, Newbury Street, and the college scene. These things would all be so much better if I could travel to them in a cheap and efficient manner. Too bad the MBTA blows.
The T is wonderfully cheap, but has no schedule whatsoever, often leaving me to sit at the Reservoir stop for at least fifteen minutes. The ride from there on isn't TERRIBLE until you get to Kenmore and you lose all cell service and the T starts doing pterodactyl screeches at every turn. Thank god I stay on the Green Line for the most part so I don't have to endanger my safety on the sketchy-ass stops on the Red and Orange Lines.
The MBTA crappyness does not end there.
The Major, Capt. Casper, and I hit up the 86 bus from Reservoir to Harvard Square the other day. Aside from the bus being 20 minutes late, we found out that it runs on a system similar to that of the "blue light" system at BC. You can literally see the next stop from the prior stop. How lazy does the MBTA think everyone is? This isn't the South, we enjoy getting places promptly. If I can sprint from Conte Forum to the College Road bus stop after a hockey game, people can certainly afford to have stops at least 4 blocks away from each other.
Cut the crap, MBTA.
