  1. Amen, Jim! I’m a long-time  BC season ticket holder who did not attend the game. I was disturbed that BC would give up a home game for this, especially since they played there just two years ago. This was just an occasion for the Red Sox to make a quick buck. I wasn’t going to sit in the freezing cold AGAIN to watch a regular season hockey game, and put more money in the Red Sox owners pockets.

  3. Couldn’t agree more with this article on so many levels.  NU fan here.  People were complaining after the first announcement that NU remained out of consideration for a Fenway game yet again, but frankly, I was happy they weren’t playing an outdoor game.  People don’t seem to realize that you sacrifice so much for the POTENTIAL of creating an atmospheric once-in-a-lifetime experience.  I’d much rather have the players play in the same conditions they normally do, and be able to watch a game comfortably.  These games are losing their luster due to the sheer saturation of outdoor games.

  5. Wow, an entire paragraph devoted to maligning the various organizations that irreparably sullied the event through their selfish desire to have a once in a lifetime experience, and you STILL managed not to acknowledge the existence of Division III.  You guys are nothing if not consistent.
