"You Can Do Anything You Want"

Yesterday was a very exciting day for those who care about our Alma Mater, Holy Cross Football, and our fellow man. 

The press conference held at the South Worcester Neighborhood Center to publicly announce the launch of the special HC Football ticket programs targeted at Worcester residents and especially Worcester's youth was simply spectacular. This outreach is truly an extension of other measures and efforts the college has made both recently and over the years.

Less Than 6 Weeks...Coach Gilmore-National Championship

Fellow Crusaders,

Boston College vs Holy Cross at Fenway Park 1916

A friend of mine attended a recent Red Sox game at Fenway Park. The picture below of the BC-HC game from 1916 was highlighted on the Jumbo-tron. The following description was provided:   

On a Saturday that Bostonians celebrated Thanksgiving, the fans of Boston College were justified in feeling Christmas may have come early.

Of the memorable game, Boston Globe sportswriter Lawrence J. Sweeney wrote:

"For 17 long years, Boston College had awaited the day when her football team should triumph over its time-honored rival from Worcester and yesterday at Fenway Park, as the shadows of eventide crept over the gridiron, her fondest hopes were realized" (Boston Sunday Globe, December 3, 1916) 

A crowd of 8,000 that included Mayor James M. Curley and Cardinal William O'Connell attended the historic game.
