Spring Game mega post
All reports from the Spring Game were glowing. The weather was great, good attendance, a baseball game in the background and a definite change in attitude among the fans and coaches. If you missed the game go to ACCSelect.com and watch it on demand. I plan on watching it this week and will post my thoughts after. Alex was there and posted a good recap on his blog.
Thanks to Kristofer C. and Huelsebu for sharing some of their pics below.
Finally a tip of the hat for job well done to the Herald's Steve Conroy. He wrote a great feature about Jags' path back to Boston and was the first to write about the challenges the Jagodzinskis faces with their youngest daughter Jacqui who suffers from autism and epilepsy. I really respect the way Jags and his family are handling this. These things are so sensitive and private and tough to handle publically. I knew about Jacqui during the hiring process, but as long as Jags wasn't talking about it, I wasn't going to write about it. He didn't use it as part of who he is in the process, but now that he has settled in and Jacqui's going to be attending the Campus School the time was right for him to open up about this issue.
There are many advantages to being a head coach and one of them is to use your platform to shed light on things that otherwise wouldn't get attention. Hopefully Jags and Lisa will find a way to give back and the BC community will support them.
