Frozen Fenway

Sunday, January 8, 2017 – Fenway Park

Boston University 5, University of Massachusetts 3

Boston College 3, Providence College 1

You know I can’t pass up an opportunity to go to Fenway, so when I saw that my alma mater Providence College was one of the schools playing in a Hockey East doubleheader, of course I was in.  But did it really need to be such a frigid day?  19 degrees (wind chill 9) at the start of Game 2!  I’m a summer sport kind of person!  Opening Day will be a day at the beach in comparison.

Baseball withdrawal is so bad that I'll even watch hockey if it means I can go to Fenway Park.
