Beer Match? BOS vs NE
This one is for bragging rights?? You gotta be kidding, and I am. Neither team has much to brag about as the Boston Blitz face their homeland arch-enemy New England Nor'easters in a match that will live in infamy. I guess it's more of a... Lets not be more infamous than our neighbor match. Heck, with both teams having a season to forget, maybe we should just go have a beer together and call it a day. But, true to the Boston/NE fighting spirit, and, of course, in abidance with league rules, these two proud franchises will put an exclamation point on this lost season with a knock down, slam bang, slug-fest... and may the worst team lose.
All Time Series Record: (Boston leads 4 - 3)
Starts at 7:40 PM EST, Tues. Oct 13, 59 Shepard st. Cambridge, MA., SOCH building, Harvard University.

No predictions for this one... too depressing. Give the Blitz a slight edge if you're betting. This is a match that I usually look forward to watching... not this year. Anyway, no crying in my beer today. Let's get on with it. Of course, we'll win! And if you can't come down, give us some encouraging comment on ICC.
Oh, by the way, I promised to buy pizza... so, y'all are invited. Hey, even you team members who aren't playing, come on down. Let's revel in the agony of our NE neighbor and rally round the "B". There's always next year.
