SORT BY Relevancy
After a long winter, longer spring, and interminable summer, college football season is BACK!
So much discussion has taken place this offseason, from the future of the program, to the schedule, to the facilities, to the arms race in college sports. But now, finally, it's time to put the discussion back where it belongs - on the gridiron.
Dan and AJ are back to get this season jumpstarted, and it all begins on Saturday when Boston College hosts FCS-level Maine for the second straight year. Join us at 8 PM as we discuss the Eagles season and preview the team in all phases of the game. We'll look at the coaching staff and, as always, join a guest to discuss both BC and the upcoming week's opponent.
This week, tune in and call in! Let your voice be heard for the upcoming schedule.
BC FOOTBALL IS BACK! It's a beautiful thing, isn't it?

ENVISION THIS: “Though outwardly our bodies are dying, inwardly our spirits are being renewed every day.” (Epigraph from II Corinthians in one of Elaine’s New Poems)
After the life-altering experience of the loss of Francis, her spouse, Elaine McGillicuddy knew her calling as a poet and writer had become an imperative. Amazed over Francis’ remarkable request of her when he would die, "SING TO ME AND I WILL HEAR YOU", Elaine chose his words for the primary title of all three of her books and for a CD of her reading The Poems of the first book. The second book, "A Love Story" is a prose memoir. The third book, New Poems, marks the completion of the author’s trilogy. Reflecting over five years of the author’s experience as a widow, it tracks her progression through the crucible of the death of her spouse.
In this interview, Elaine shares with us fresh insights into what she feels called to do at this transitional time in her life. As she has done before with past birthdays, Elaine will make her upcoming 80th birthday a fund-raising event for Immigrant Asylum Seekers here in Portland, Maine. She will continue teaching Africans English as a Second Language, but beginning this fall – in a formal way, through Adult Ed. She will also be helping a former student with her work with traumatized children. Feeling called to share her story of love and what she witnessed in her late husband’s transformation as he approached his death, Elaine plans to give book readings. As an elder concerned about future generations and the environment, she will also continue their peace and justice work.
We are privileged to hear how Francis’ ministry as a married priest lives on in the heart and the ministry of Elaine, an ex-nun. Their love shines forth as a sacrament of God's love for humankind.
After months of negotiations — which the leader of one of the groups characterized as a sham — failed to achieve a compromise, animosity between Legalize Maine and the Marijuana Policy Project made its way to the streets and storefronts of Portland, as the two organizations each work to gather more than 60,000 signatures required to place their questions on the November 2016 ballot.
Homegrown versus Washington
The president of Legalize Maine, Paul McCarrier said the Marijuana Policy Project and its local affiliate, Regulate Maine, are resorting to Washington-style political tactics that include spreading misinformation, vague threats and bad talking when interacting with his group.
“We were really hoping that they would work with us, adopt our language and be the heroes of this state by giving the locals the power,” McCarrier said.
Our guests this morning are Mickey Marraffino, Lucy Lobster and Leilani Lobster from Redondo Beach Lobster University.
Mickey Marraffino is the Dean of Lobster University which started two years ago when one of the Original Lobster Ladies brought up the need to bring in some new blood, creating a more consistent experience during the Lobster Festival. More lobsters meant more fun!
Together, our three guests developed the curriculum for Lobster University - a 3 month program culminating with the 3 day Lobster Festival which takes place this year from Sept 25 through September 27.
The Lobsters began gracing the Lobster Festival 20 years ago and have been a steady form of entertainment for both children and adults. Getting a photo with the lobsters is one of the best parts of the Festival. This year, they are fortunate to have the first mother /son lobster team.
Lucy Lobster has been working the Redondo Beach Lobster Festival or 17 years. Her expertise includes dancing, greeting, hugging and high fiving! Lucy brings joy and smiles to all attendees of the Lobster Festival.
Leilani Lobster was born in Maine and was brought to Redondo Beach Lobster Festival in 2000. Leilani loves having her picture taken with all her fans and loves to take over the dance floor and dance all night.
The current Lobster University students will be rehearsing at the RB Chamber Regional Mixer, a week from today on Wednesday, Aug 26 at 5:30 p.m. at Seaside Lagoon..
