The Boston College women’s hockey team will play a home and away series against Providence this weekend. The Eagles defeated the Friars 7-4 earlier this season, but fans should not expect these games to be quite that easy to win. However, BC is clearly the stronger team and should be able to come away with 4 points.

How Much Does Laura Hate the Opposing Mascot?

Did you know that I have very strong opinions on mascots? Now you do!

The Friar 4/5

The Friar is very creepy, but I respect how creepy he is.
