Game Postponed, Fog
Un fucking believable.
Tonight's BC-BU game was called off after about 11 minutes of play due to excessive fog on the ice. It will be rescheduled, but that's not the point. This is absolutely inexcusable and humiliating (on national TV!!), and heads need to roll as a result of this. It's not as if there was no warning, either--the same thing happened at last year's preseason exhibition game, and no steps were taken to ensure that it would not happen again. Sure enough, it smacks us in the ass on national TV and in our biggest home game of the year. Lovely.
This is just another glaring example of the complete neglect shown for the hockey program, traditionally BC's most successful athletic program, by the athletic department under Gene DeFilippo. They screwed the players, the fans, everyone. What about fans who came in from out of town to see a pair of BC-BU games and won't be able to make the reschedule date?? Will BC refund their tickets?? Doubtful.
I'll tell you something else, too--I GUARANTEE that the game will be rescheduled for a date during the Christmas break, when no students will be in the building.
Nice work, guys.
