Go BU!

It confused me a little today when I kept checking the Beanpot Hockey Championship website and the "live" game stats were stuck at 1 to 1 in the 3rd period.

Apparently the game ended with a tie, so they went into overtime.

I finally googled the news and found the AP story from the Houston Chronicle, of all places.

Luckily the Boston University Terriers won.

"Beating BC after one period, or two periods, or three periods or five periods in overtime is always rewarding," coach Jack Parker said after BU won for the 28th time in the tournament's 55 years. "That means we've won more than all the other schools combined."

in honor of my school, I did I little research on famous Alumni. Here's a random list, although I've left off the majority of the NHL players as well as the players on the 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey team because that there'd be a lot of typing ...
