Better say your prayers, Holy Cross

This year, we will finally beat Holy Cross. Not that we haven't before, but since I became a hardcore BU hoops fan, we've lost to them every year. Two years ago, we lost by a buzzer-beater (I believe?), and our good friend Ephraim the Retarded Rabbit nearly duked it out with a 90-year old man.

Last year, we lost to them in our embarrassing home opener(I believe?), not a great way to start our season. This year, the Holy Cross team that we are going to see is difficult to figure out. They were crushed by Harvard early in the season, then barely lost to Vermont, and just recently beat a sharp-looking Northeastern team (on paper, anyway). This pattern clearly shows an improving team, and with the momentum coming home with them after their impressive win in the dirty part of Boston, we are in for a real dogfight.

On the other hand, our Terriers are finding their stride, and the individual players are settling into their roles on the team. This will prove to be an exciting game from start to finish. I'm lucky enough to get to use Tall-boys car, so I'll be able to make it to the game, and I'll be there front and center to witness one BU's most exciting wins this season (I believe?).
