Boston College Frozen 4 Champs

The old joke always said that "if you can't get into Notre Dame, you can always settle for B.C.". This time it was the Golden Eagles that got the last laugh in Denver's Pepsi Center.

B.C. had been suffering from being "the bridesmaid never the bride" while coming in second place the past 3 years. Nathan Gerbe, the national scoring leader, finally tasted success after having been on the previous losing teams and led by example scoring 2 goals and 2 assists.
"Since Day 1, we've been fixated on one trophy and that's the national championship," Gerbe insisted.
Buffalo Sabres fans should be excited for this Gerbe as his pro rights belong to them. Carl Sneep is also listed in the Pittsburgh Penguins system, so having him get a taste of success is certainly preparing him for success in the NHL.

I like that the 4-letter covered a good deal of the Frozen Four this year and I am sure it got coverage on other smaller networks. These athletes deserve its time in the sun. Maybe in a few years, people will start filling out bracket pools for college ice hockey like they do for the final four.
