Final thoughts and predictions for today's game
Can you believe it is finally here? Boston College is in a bowl game again, just one year removed from finishing 2-10, the Eagles went 7-5 and are ready to face off with the Arizona Wildcats. They have had over a month to prepare for this game, and ten extra practices, but what will Boston College need to do to beat the heavily favored Arizona squad. One more chance to see some Steve Addazio magic, one more chance for Andre Williams to impress us all with one more incredible performance, one more chance for Boston College to regain what they have lacked for the last four years.
Obviously the biggest question is who will finish with more yards, Andre Williams or Ka'deem Carey? Can BC's defense contain Carey? How is Andre Williams' shoulder? What kind of game can we expect from Chase Rettig? Will Nate Freese continue to remain perfect? How will the offensive line manage against a team that only had 20 sacks all season? How will BC be able to contain both Carey and dual threat quarterback B.J. Denker? Will one of the wide receivers not named Alex Amidon make a play this week? Will the full backs show up in the passing game again? Will Arizona conveniently forget about Alex Amidon and allow him to make a big play or two?
Will the time off effect Boston College negatively or help them? Or some combination of both? How filled will the stadium be tomorrow? What Arizona team will show up tomorrow, the team that beat Oregon or the team that got blown out by Arizona St? Can BC play another clean game without major penalties. Will Don Brown's defense be able to get off the field on third down?
Jockamo IPA by Abita Beer: Had to go ahead and choose a beer that was brewed in Louisiana because I just assume that everyone in Arizona only drinks Tequila and Margaritas (This is a joke, please don't send me a million beers brewed in Arizona, because honestly I don't care). I tried Abita at a Beer Fest before and was pleasantly surprised by a beer that has such an odd name. It was rich, had a malty-caramel flavor and really was refreshing, and as an IPA hop-head I would highly recommend this. Hopefully you can find this beer at your local packie, because it's worth a drink.
Hell you know what? Drink whatever you want. Boston College is in a bowl game, and this has been a season none of expected. Enjoy this while it lasts. Leave your beer choice in the comment section.

Make'em Say UH!- Master P and the No Limit Soldiers
Part of me wanted to go with Lil Wayne (product of New Orleans) or Lil Boosie who wrote a song called I.N.D.E.P.E.D.E.N.T which would have been fitting (but the song blows). So I chose another Louisiana favorite, Master P and the No Limit Soldiers. Easily my favorite part of this video is the giant gold tank they drive onto the basketball court, followed secondly by Mystical. But honestly I love everything he does, well other than the whole going to jail thing. Master P was not much of a rapper in my eyes, and I honestly didn't like much of his crew's music, but this track still does it for me. Hopefully BC will make Arizona say UGHHHHHHHHHHHH tomorrow.
