  For Boston, for Boston,
  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!

Shana Tova and General Boston College Athletics Odds & Ends

In honor of the holiday this week, I would like to post an update on former BC basketball standout Ryan Sidney, who recently signed with Israeli Premier League's Maccabi Rishon Letzion (as reported here, via Terrapins MVN). The article reminds us of Sidney's premature departure from BC due to "personal problems." What wasted potential.

John Molori of Patsfans.com has an update on the departure of Ted Sarandis from his WEEI prime-time radio show, previously discussed. Molori reports that WEEI made it impossible for Sarandis to continue hosting Ted Nation "without continuing to sacrifice some basic dignity." It was news to me that Sarandis was working without a contract and was the lowest paid of WEEI’s regular hosts.

*UPDATE* - Scott Clemmensen, the former BC hockey star who led the Eagles to the 2001 National Championship, will start this season as backup goaltender to Martin Brodeur of the NHL's New Jersey Devils. (Reported in the Asbury Park Press.)

And, now for the "nothing you can't read at www.bceagles.com" portion of this post:

The #5-ranked Boston College co-ed sailing team recently upset the top team in the nation, Hawaii, at a prestigious competition hosted by the Coast Guard Academy. Now, Boston College alum everywhere can proudly boast at our rivals "you probably don't even know how to sail."
