Earlier this week the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (ACSMA) announced its All ACC team. Kiwi made first team. Blackmon, Trueblood, Beekman and Ross all made Second-Team. Silva got honorable mention as did Blackmon on Special Teams. Kiwi certainly deserved it. As did the lineman. I really think Beekman had the best season and probably deserved first team. I was surprised by Blackmon. I guess sometimes what I see as a fan who watches week in week out, skews my perspective and expectations. I thought Will's season was a letdown. Regardless, I am glad he was rewarded. He did some amazing things this year and made a switch that he didn't have to make.
Non BC grads might not find this interesting, but the Heights had a good story on Father Tony Penna, the athletic department chaplain. On the last page you'll find out that Matt Ryan and Pat Ross are his altar servers. (The writer, Kevin Armstrong, might be the best Heights sports writer in a decade. Hopefully he lands a job with a major paper or news site after college.)
First it was Simpsons characters. Then Ian took the analogy game to a new level with his rapper post. Now Golden Tornado goes back to the cartoon angle, only this time with the Smurfs. I love Brainy but I might have gone with Smurfette since like the lone Smurf chick, BC is just different from the rest of the conference.
