Boston College 24, Ball State O (halftime)

As you probably know, there is no bigger fan of the pomp and pagentry of big time collegiate athletics than yours truly. I woke up early this morning and watched the MPC Computers Parade, then spent most of the afternoon listening to old Eyeless In Gaza albums in homage to Boston College’s terrific WZBC.

That said, I’m not sure any contest, let alone one with this game’s rich history, is worthy of blowing off a D.U.I court date.

Nor can I understand, after trying in vain to adjust the settings of my very expensive television set, why the field is blue. What’s up with that?
