It's been rumored for a while, but it looks like BC vs. UConn will finally meet on the football field once again. And oh, what a venom-filled hate-fest it will be.
Some of you think this will not be fun. Oh, sirs and ladies, you are very wrong.
There is a reason every single BC Interruption post about UConn blows up into triple digit comments. There's a reason everyone makes a point about showing up to let everyone else know they don't care about this game.
It's because you care.
There's already a large contingent of BC fans that openly admit they want this game to happen. You can pretend it's not true, but you know it's true, because every time it's mentioned the bickering takes a week to stop.
For a long time, I, too, was one of the many who lived in darkness, afraid to step out into the bright sunlight and admit that playing UConn in football would be fun. Then I went to another BC vs. BU hockey game...the BC vs. UMass game at Gillette...the BC vs. UConn hockey game at the XL Center...
They all had something in common: I absolutely hated the people on the other side of the stadium, and they hated me. There, on opposite sides of the stadium, sat two fanbases who saw across from them a baselessly arrogant inferior "other team" that had the audacity to think they were good, that they even belonged in the same game.
