Wicked Pissah!

For the life of me, I've had trouble understanding why the ACC (The Lawhd Gawd's gift to basketball conferences---the one true home of real roundball in Amerika) wanted to bring Boston College into the fold, or why BC would want to join in a conference with Clemson.

Sure, the Boston tee-vee market for ACC football (no laughs, please) must have been on that weasel John Swofford's (Lord High Sharif of the ACC) mind, as would the possibility of playing the ACC football title game at Giants Stadium. The original plan when the ACC expanded was to bring in Syracuse; instead, thanks to the evil machinations of Governor Mark Warner, who beat UVA President John Casteen like a red-headed rented mule, we got Virginia Tech instead. Well now.

But it turns out the real reason why BC jumped ship has emerged: can you say ACC baseball tournament at Fenway Park?

Hat tip to the Irish Elk, who has a good roundup of Washington's birthday tributes.

Love it. Not that the UNC team is that good anymore, but hey. BC's got a decent roundball team this year too, almost worthy of the ACC.
