Throughout the whole summer, Boston College Athletics has been accosted by my fellow interns at my workplace. I get such questions as “Does Boston College still have a football program?” or “Has Boston College ever even done anything?”. I sometimes even get the backhanded remark about Boston College being Catholic and something else about condoms.

Well, as The Who first sang and Twisted Sister borrowed (adding screams), I’m not gonna take it anymore. Originally I was going to have the calm, cool and content season preview of every opponent our Fighting Addazios were going to face this season, but that has changed. I’ve decided, with my Freudian Id being the central factor, to unleash my hate and angst (Kurt Cobain style angst without the overrated-ness of Nirvana ggrrrr…..whole other subject matter).

Here’s how it will go(till someone i.e. Fansided, Sports Illustrated, Chuck Norris, God, or my conscience tells me to stop): First I will write a long winded (possibly an exaggeration) diatribe about why our opponent’s school stinks. The next day, I will actually write about the football aspect of the game and why Boston College will beat said opponent. Obviously those reasons and the logic behind them will be easy to find as I am predicting a 12-0 regular season for our Eagles but for us not to go to the postseason because someone realized that New Mexico State’s football program doesn’t exist (boom, roasted) . But really I see Coach Addazio raising the crystal football in January 2014.

Yes, I expect and welcome as much hate in these articles to be volleyed back towards us. And I will attempt to respond to each and every attack with the ferociousness of Charlie Weis at a hot dog eating contest.

So first up will be Villanova. Get ready folks it’s going to be a fun ride this year.
