Mailbag Friday, 3/11

As always, Friday is the day that you serfs look forward most in your lives as it is the day a better group of people actually interact with those of you who are brazen enough to drop us an email. As you know by now, if you have a question or comment, send us an email to "" and on Fridays, if you're lucky, we'll do our best to answer some of them.

Though imbecilic and unsightly, Merrimack College graduates enjoy delivering mail to Pinhead Nation's mailbag

While I have some time to kill while my Boston University graduate student intern cleans my sump pump, I thought this was just as good a time as any to answer some of you menial questions or respond to your uneducated comments. Let's see what is the 'Nation's mailbag for this week:

Q - Paul M (Amherst, MA) - You guys seem pretty cocky about Boston College's chances to beat UMass this weekend. Have you ever heard of the concept of "Karma"?

A - Paul, only an uneducated dolt, much like yourself, is concerned with silly concepts as "karma". On one side of the ice, I see everything a college hockey team should be: smart, from great collar-up families, well coached, and extremely talented. On the visitors bench, I see a bunch of rejects who only accepted their scholarships to UMass because the other alternative was prison. Your superiors feel for you folks at UMass, we really do. It must be difficult knowing your UMass degree carries as much weight as the third prize in a County Fair's "ring toss" game. Good luck in your future endeavors.

Q - Steve N. (Morgantown, WV) - BC hoops = Hahahaha!

A - Boy, what a great moment that must have been at WVU when the Mountaineers hoops team upset the mighty BC Eagles. I can only imagine the parties at West Virginia U. after the contest. Although you probably think most collar-ups are upset at the loss, we are not. We actually feel bad for those who live in Morgantown, WV. No, not the students or alumni who, unfortunately, have no real collegiate options or chance at success, but the countless farm animals who endured several instances of sexual molestation during the celebration. I feel bad for that faceless chicken, just waiting to be killed, who has to endure different forms of animal husbandry everytime a WVU program somehow wins a big game. As always, your superiors worry about the little people who have no voice to cry out their outrage.

Q - Jason D. (Chestnut Hill, MA) - Hey "guys who I wish I was". I couldn't help noticing at the Maine game on Friday there was a couple of people wearing "Pinhead Nation Hockey" t-shirts. Are you guys selling those and how can I get one? I am a BC student (in case you couldn't tell by my email address), and I'd proudly wear that shirt around campus and to games.

A - Jason, thanks for your email. Receiving an email from a future collar-up is like drinking a glass of Chateau Gruaud Larose on a hot day. Yes, the 'Nation has started to make inroads to the fashion industry with our new t-shirts. Check the official home of your superiors at and soon we'll have a link up there on how to purchase such a fine casual garment. For upper class types like yourself, its great to wear to a game. For lower class types like our friends up in Durham, NH, our t-shirt would qualify as formal wear.

Well, unfortunately for you, that's going to do it for this week's visit to our mailbag. Check out the 'Nation later this weekend as America's Team prepares for their trip to the FleetCenter for the Hockey East semifinals next weekend. For collar-ups, put an extra log in the fire this weekend as it is going to be a cold one. For the rest of you, book your space now in your local shelter as space will, likely, be limited.

Collar Up.

i was wondering what you make of the eagles Bball chances. To me, it looks like they played way over their expectations and for the last 8 games, (4-4) they have finally begun to play like BC. They cannot shoot the ball to save their lives from anywhere near the three point line. im looking at them to be done by the second round of the tourney...your thoughts?.....P.S. who really cares about the basketball team when the hockey team is finals material
