Brian: I woke up in southern New Jersey at my parents place (at a family event), but I've had these championship tickets for a while, so my girlfriend and I are crazily driving up to Boston today to catch the Hockey East championship game between Boston College and the Vermont Catamounts (7pm, NESN). UVM dispatched of our green line rivals BU 3-1 in the second semifinal.
Road trip! Who cares about brackets. Mine is shot already, although I can't say I didn't warn you.
Since I won't be online for the game, for those of you lucky enough to get NESN coverage of the event, leave your thoughts on the game in the comments section below.
