BC Continues Boston Success, Wins National Title

It may be painful to write these words, but it’s more important that the City of Boston participated in and won another championship, this time in the realm of college hockey as Jerry York’s Boston College Eagles defeated the Notre Dame Irish 4-1 Saturday night.

It’s worse that I will always hate the Eagles due to my love for Boston University Terriers hockey, but I have to give credit where credit is due. The Eagles were the hottest team at the hottest time and have been the best team in college hockey the last three seasons (losing twice in the final Frozen Four game before winning it all this year). They also currently have one of the best players in all of college hockey in Nathan Gerbe, who of course was in the Championship game mix with two more goals to give him 35 in the season.

Here’s a look at recent Boston Sports success overall in championship games, starting with the 2007 Boston Red Sox:

Year Team Matchup Result
2007 Red Sox vs. Rockies Win in 4
2007-08 Revolution vs. Dynamo L 2-1
2007-08 Patriots vs. Giants L 17-14
2007-08 BC Hockey vs. Notre Dame W 4-1
2007-08 Celtics ??? ???
2007-08 Bruins ??? ???

So…congratulations to Boston College (gulp) and may you actually lose the Beanpot next year! Thanks for bringing a national title back to Hockey East and more important, a title back to the city of Boston.
