Re: Week #11 - Games of Interest

That game should not be close, although they have given us trouble especially there.

Blow them out first half....no messing around.....I think Dan will remind them of the stinker effort we had last year against them.

Chowder and half dozen clam cakes for $1.00, lobster rolls or fish and chips for $4.00 among other items. Just have to tip out at normal prices.......

Re: 1/17 | UMass Minutemen | 7PM (Yurview TV)

UMass will either give us fits the entire game or we will blow them out. No in between.

I'm guessing that we will shut either Pierre or Pipkins down.....probably not both, but enough to win.

With those 2 guys, don't want to be in a last minute situation with them.
