  1. Jack Parker has been a fixture at Boston University since before John Silber left Texas. The most telling thing about him as in individual is this singular choice of words: “The thing I’m proudest of is the way my university and the hockey community rallied around Travis.” MY University.

    How many others can say they use that phrase — daily, weekly, annually, ever? It’s usually “the administration”, or “BU” … so impersonal, so little personal ownership.

    BU is MY University. Just like my family is my family (warts and all).

    Congrats, Jack. One down … three more “biggies” to go for the 2009-2010 season.

  2. THE game was sensational. I have followed the Boston Terriers since I was a little child. My father, Prof. John Waters, Sr. is the person who NAMED the Boston Terriers as recorded in the old Boston Post in1924. He retired as Director of the Evening Division.

    2 short handed goals in under 2 minutes: never thought it possible. 3 short handed goals terrific. Northeastern played like the BC of Snooks Kelley days.

    My favorite all time BU hockey player was Jack Garrity of the team that included Jack Kelley Jack Martin Ike Blevins in goal and Red Kelley who I also knew personally but the years go on and I can’t remeber whether he was BU or BC; that year I knew both teams mebers.
    The two teams partied together after one of their games. They were all friends.

    Jack all my congratulations to you and the men of the team. I’m sure my Dad sends the same from heaven.

    It’s a loss that BU doesn’t have even a baseball team any more.

    Born a BU Terrier,
    Jack Waters
