Ice Cream of the Game
Many of our other previews feature a beverage of the game, but this year we’ll be picking an ice cream dessert of the game for MIH games. Why, you ask? Because when Jerry York got the BC coaching job, he went out for ice cream sundaes to celebrate.
Strawberries are an elite fruit. Like hall of fame level fruit. Strawberry sorbets therefore are an elite sorbets. Easily first ballot hall of fame.
Every game, we have the cats of the Ellen M. Gifford Cat Shelter (located right across from BC at 30 Undine Road) predict the outcome of the games. The Gifford Cat Shelter is the oldest cageless, no-kill shelter in the USA.
Laura’s cat Yorkie predicted a 3-3 tie.

UMass just beat a Lowell team that gave BC fits recently, but I think the Eagles have a slight edge in this one.
