Frozen Four and the Friars

What an exciting Frozen Four in Boston.  I was able to see PC Friars beat Nebraska-Omaha in the semifinals on Thursday 4/9/15 and then see the Friars rally to beat BU and take the national championship.  A great hockey weekend ended with a PBruins loss Sunday 4/12/15, and the Boston Bruins failure to reach the postseason, but it was still a grand weekend of 4 hockey game in 4 days.

Providence College Hockey on to the Frozen Four 2015

Providence College won another regional tournament game on the Dunkin Donuts Center in Providence Sunday night, March 29, 2015 at a game I attended. PC heads to the Frozen Four in Boston for the first time since 1985 to face the Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks

Needless to say it was an exciting night at the Dunk, as the Friars broke the 1-1 time after a 5 minute major penalty on the Denver Pioneers.  PC added a couple of empty netters to win 4-1.

PC got there by beating Miami (Ohio) Saturday night (3/28/15), holding on to win 7-5 after being up 6-2.

We were near a section of Denver fans and the Denver mascot.  As they said to us after Denver tied up 1-1, we are out numbered 6,000 to 5.

Here's the final scoreboard and a PC celebration on the "jumbletron"

2014-15 Celtics

The Celtics won a mere 25 games last season.  Since the Celtics open up their season tonight I'll predict they will win 35 games this year, a slight improvement but still a long way to go.

I will also say that KC Royals will beat the Giants in Game 7 of the World Series tonight.

Meanwhile I spotted by first Dark-eyed Junco in Rumford at the old Fram building today, a sure sign that winter is on the way

So if I'm as successful here as I have been with my NFL picks this year, the Celts will win 20 games and the Giants will be your 2014 World Series Champions.

Corita Kent

I came across this recently and was intrigued - the person who painted the famous highway gas tank along the Southeast Express way was an nun named Corita Kent.   There is now a Corita Art Center in LA.  As they say "the more you know"

Here is a link to the famous tank, you can't miss this iconic storage tank it if you have ever driven to Boston

Here's another nice piece from her art center.   Can't go wrong with this sentiment.

Meanwhile it will be nice to have the Rem Dog back in 2014 and interesting to see if Grady Sizemore can make the team.
