  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!

The Hasselbecks Take the NFL

The Hasselbeck brothers, both former starting Quarterbacks for Boston College, were featured in the media in anticipation of a meeting between their NFL teams, the Giants and Seahawks. The New York Times has a piece about the football family, while the AP carried a story about Matt's experience at BC.

Pro Bowler Matt, the elder, ended up at Boston College because he "was a little bit afraid to say no to" then-BC head coach Tom Coughlin. According to Tim, he "pretty much went to Boston College because [Matt] was there."

The duo jokes about being "the poor man's Mannings," which is ironic because fathers Don Hasselbeck and Archie Manning were once teammates on the Minnesota Vikings. Tim points out an additional identity crisis:
We always had 'Son of Don' as a middle name. First it was 'Matthew, Son of Don.' Then it was 'Tim, Son of Don, Brother of Matthew.' Now it's 'Tim, Son of Don, Brother of a Matthew, Husband of Elisabeth.'
