Boston College Baseball: "Don't Call It A Comeback" and Play Him Off

Brian: First, the baseball team makes like LL Cool J. "Don't call it a comeback! ..."

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — John Spatola hit a three-run homer during a six-run ninth inning, and Boston College rallied to beat Texas State 8-7 in the opener of the Austin regional Friday.

The Eagles (34-24) started the ninth with five straight hits, including Spatola's homer, and sent 11 batters to the plate to turn a 5-2 deficit into an 8-5 lead.


If there was ever a game to defibrillate Superfan interest in college baseball, this be it. Next up for the Eagles is a matchup between the winner of (1) Texas vs. (4) Army. The game will be played tomorrow at 7pm.


Second, I'll be taking a bit of a vacation from the blog for about three weeks starting ... tomorrow. You can say that there will be quite a few significant changes in my life over the next month. Namely, getting hitched, quitting my (day) job, moving from New York to Chicago and going back to school for my masters degree.

Blogger batteries will be recharged, and sadly, I won't be around for the Eagles trip to Omaha.

"I promise you one thing though, a lot of good will come out of this vacation. When I return, you will never see any blogger in the entire country blog as hard as I will blog about BC the rest of the year. You will never see someone push the BCI staff as hard as I will push the BCI staff the rest of the season.

You will never see a BC sports blog blog harder than we will the rest of the season.

God bless."


Oh, sorry. Just channeling my inner Tim Tebow. I'll pop in from time to time in the comments section and will keep our Twitter feed going.

In my absence, Jeff will keep things going around here. Send any tips, suggestions or feedback to bcfaninsc@gmail.com.


Finally, here to help send off my single years in style is the keyboard cat. Play my single life off, keyboard cat:
