A Boston College sports blog capturing the highs and lows of being a BC fan living 1,000 miles from Chestnut Hill.
Ha! Quite possibly the best post of the year.
Funny! Very perceptive baby you've got there!
FWIW I wrote a letter to GDF last year about dumping the chicken head for the newer "screaming eagle" secondary logo that appears on the sleeves of the football jerseys.I got a basketball media guide in the mail...talk about disconnect!
Unfortunately for those who dislike the angry chicken logo, it looks like it is still around - and adorning shockingly expensive plo shirts:http://www.sportsauthority.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3621424&CAWELAID=349669630
On the lighter side, I think there is some kind of subliminal message in the Eagle's beak . . . maybe the New Orleans Saints fleur-de-lis logo. . . .or, perhaps, the four points of the beak are symbolic of something more familiar . . . . Jesuits work in mysterious ways[matthew2 -- my apologies for mentioning religion in the context of the catholic institution ;~) ]
I've pretty much just made a habit of not buying any BC stuff that has the angry chicken logo on it. I had thought it was being phased out for a while, but now I'm seeing a resurgence. Man, I hate that thing.
Hilarious! My husband and I are laughing so hard at this post right now...
it's ok mod, just don't let it happen again
I sincerely hope the new Underarmour contract will result in the permanent purging of the Angry Chicken. I'd love to see them being back the old interlocking BC as our main athletics logo.Mod/Matthew, In the words of the late great Father Donavan: "Boston College is not a Catholic college. It is a Jesuit university."
My 16 year old said the same thing!
WE MUST PROTECT THIS ROOST!!!!
or WE MUST PROTECT THIS (hen)HOUSE
Rename this blog "Coop Scoop!"I love the angry chicken. But then, I'm also a big fan of Elvis movies and the whole B-horror genre, from Day of the Triffids to Night of the Lepus. So take that for what it's worth.
