Spring Game Cancelled

Per BC's press release:

“After consulting with campus, city and law enforcement officials, including the Boston College Police Department, we have decided to cancel all home athletics events scheduled for Saturday, including the spring football game," Director of Athletics Brad Bates said. "Our first priority is ensuring the safety of our student-athletes, coaches and spectators. Our local law enforcement community has done a phenomenal job this past week, and we do not want our events to serve as a distraction.

“Furthermore, now is a time for reflection to honor those who have been tragically killed and injured this past week and to allow our community to heal. The entire Boston College family stands with those who have been affected by this week's events. Together we will persevere and emerge stronger and more unified than ever.”

What an emotional series of events? It's a shame that the game had to be cancelled but rightfully so. Remember when JFK was shot and the NFL played anyway? At least, you have to put away the "beans and hotdogs" for another day. Let's all have "prime rib" and sing "For Boston"!

Look at it this way, only 200 fewer people made it to this years Spring Game than last year's. It would have been fun to see the new look though.
