  We sing our proud refrain!

  For Boston, for Boston,
  'Tis widsom's earthly fane.

  For here all are one, and
  their hearts are true, and
  The towers on the Heights
  reach to Heaven's own blue.

  For Boston, For Boston,
  Till the echoes ring again!

Al Skinner Gets a Contract Extension Through 2011

As reported by the Boston Globe:
Boston College coach Al Skinner, who has led the Eagles to four NCAA tournament appearances and one NIT appearance in the past five seasons, received a one-year contract extension through 2011.
Skinner has a 147-100 record in eight years with the Eagles, who start their first season as member of the Atlantic Coast Conference this fall, after jumping from the Big East.

"We are very fortunate to have a man of Al Skinner's character and class leading our basketball program, especially as we head into the Atlantic Coast Conference," athletics director Gene DeFilippo said.

Congrats, Skin-man.
