By offseason standards, it was a pretty busy week here at BC Interruption. Here's a look back at this week's top stories and some things you may have missed.
1. Boston College Football is heading to Ireland
It was long-rumored, and this week, it finally came to fruition. BC and Georgia Tech officially announced that on September 3, 2016 at 7:30 AM, the two teams will face off at Aviva Stadium. AJ also dug into the price structure for packages offered through BC and Georgia Tech for the Ireland game. As usual, don't expect to be too happy with the BC offerings unless you're a huge donor.
2. New Shea Field pricing and tailgating policies
Speaking of which, be prepared to shell out more money and face more restrictions if you're tailgating on Shea Field this football season. AJ's post on BC's move prompted a good conversation with many fans once again feeling frustrated by the tailgating situation at BC.
3. A BC alum goes for the Stanley Cup... again
After his Tampa Bay Lightning defeated Kreider, Hayes and the New York Rangers last week, Brian Boyle is now carrying the flag for BC alums in the Stanley Cup Finals. Laura posted the weekly alum recapp in advance of Wednesday's first game between Tampa and Chicago. Unfortunately, the Lightning dropped Game 1 2-1; game two is Saturday night.
4. Accolades for BC QB recruit Anthony Brown
Anthony Brown, a 2016 BC QB commit, had a big week. He was named MVP of Nike's recruit camp in Columbus. He also was selected to participate in the Elite 11 semifinals - a prestigious camp/competition put on by Trent Dilfer for promising QB recruits.
5. GIF of the Year Tournament Starts Next Week
Grant solicited nominations for this year's GIF of the Year tournament, which will begin next week.
