Beanpot fallout

Congrats to the BC women for winning their version of the Beanpot.

Throw the book at this guy. Mascot violence is funny in theory (I still laugh when Ace Ventura takes the first swing at the Eagle mascot). In reality this guy is a total dick. What sort of jerk tackles another person who is trying to entertain a crowd on ice? Think of it this way: would this guy have been arrested if he climbed the boards and tackled a cheerleader? Instead he was just kicked out of the game and is now being summonsed. If a BC student did this, I would feel the same way. I love stupid college jerkiness as much as the next guy but taking someone defenseless and hooded down (and Baldwin is often a girl underneath) is just lame.
