The Sonny Milano Affair with BC is one that stirs emotions one way or the other. Everyone has an opinion on it. Joe Grav joins New Guy in studio to talk about what happened in detail. We'll have guests on from the Ontario Hockey League to discuss primary differences between junior hockey and the NCAA, and we'll encourage the discussion about what Milano did. Was it right? Was it wrong? Does it really matter in the end?
This is going to be one of the shows you don't want to miss this year.
Let's deconstruct this week's Once Upon a Time episode, "The Apprentice." Join Blogcritics' Executive Editor Barbara Barnett, and BC writers JeromeWetzelTV and Chrissy Piccolo for a lively hour. Tuesday night.
With Disney's Froz?en firmly in place for this season of Once Upon a Time, how do you feel about the direction of the series? Do you think the showrunners have "frozen out" a few of the core characters? Or do you like the direction the series has taken so far this season?
Tune in, call in, or visit the chatroom as Blogcritics' Executive Editor Barbara Barnett, and BC writers JeromeWetzelTV and Christine Piccolo take you through this week's episode and talk about the season thus far. We'll also touch on other drama series, including the powerful conclusion of TNT's Legends, The Knick, and more.
Two weeks ago, the world was falling. A Boston College defeat left the team at 3-2 heading on the road out of Massachusetts for the first time this season. They were about to get back into ACC play against an NC State team, and the outlook was grim.
But BC dominated on Saturday, taking a 30-14 victory over the Wolfpack to pull up to 4-2 on the season and within two victories of bowl eligibility. The Eagles controlled the clock, and Tyler Murphy ran for over 130 yards with a couple of long touchdown runs. The defense held NC State to under 250 yards overall, and they averaged 1.7 yards per rushing play.
That was then, and this is now. We turn the page to Saturday with help from all of you for the next opponent - Clemson. We'll talk the Tigers and the young yet fierce rivalry, and we'll speak with people who know a Top 25 team best. Clemson is back into the top 25 at #24 this week, and they'll be coming up on Saturday with their troves of fans.
So tune in at 8 PM and give us a call at 646-200-0446 to talk Tigers. Game day is right around the corner!
Watch the season premiere on ABC at 7:00 ET, then come on over and talk about it: the highs, the lows, the so-so. Join BC writer Christine Piccolo and BC Publisher Barbara Barnett in a lively discussion. Call in, join the chat room or just listen. The episode is heavy on the Frozen, but all your favorite story lines are touched in the premiere (yes, I've seen it!): Regina & Robin, Rumbelle, Emma and Hook. Even Baelfire gets a posthumous shout out.
Angela Brathovde is a certified psychiatric and holistic nurse, has a PhD in holistic counseling and is a Reiki Master. She is a nurse educator, has published several articles and has speaks widely on holistic nursing. She is the Clinical Director of Children’s Crisis Intervention Services at Monmouth Medical Center.
Angela will speak to how she practices holistic health at her organiation and how Reiki research contributes to our nursing practice.
#TheRivalry week is here.
After a disappointing loss to Clemson last week, the Eagle retake to the road at 4-3 to take on the Wake Forest Demon Deacons in Winston-Salem. We'll have all the coverage kicked off this week, but we'll get into the X's and O's of what to expect with our weekly coverage of the BCI Radio Show!
Dan and AJ will return at 8 PM, joined by the boys from Blogger So Dear, to profile the Eagels and Deacs game on Saturday afternoon. They'll discuss how Wake Forest could pull out a potential upset, and they'll discuss at length some of the factoids about this Boston College team. They'll also look into some of the hockey and basketball goings on as the boys of winter get started with their games.
Tune in and be sure to not miss another episode of our weekly show! Call in at 646-200-0446 and let your voice be heard!
ESPN's critically acclaimed "30 for 30" series premieres this Tuesday with Playing for the Mob. The story details the Boston College point shaving scandal of 1978-1979, its players, characters, and how the mob bought college basketball.
In 1978, Henry Hill, a noted gangster from the Lucchese crime family in New York City, teamed up with Rocco and Tony Perla from Pittsburgh to buy Boston College basketball. Hill, the protagonist from the movie Goodfellas who passed away last year, the Perlas, and BC basketball player Rick Kuhn spearheaded an effort for the Eagles to fix games by shaving points.
With teammates involved, Kuhn orchestrated point shaving games across nine games between December and February, 1978-1979. What started as a simple scheme became a story of high stake gambling, the Mafia, and Boston College. The scheme remained a secret until Hill turned informant in 1980.
We will spearhead a discussion of the story, its impact on college sports, and the prospect of match fixing as it continues today. We'll be joined by a panel of guests throughout the night, and we'll help get you ready for Boston College basketball season, the first under recently appointed head coach Jim Christian.
This is going to be one helluva show, and like so many before it, one you won't want to miss! So tune in and talk BC basketball and Goodfellas as we gear up for Tuesday's premiere of Playing for the Mob!
The BC First party is running an on-line radio talk show, on BlogTalkRadio.com, dedicated to BC politics. The theme of the show is, ‘Have Your Say’, and will run from January 30th through to, during and following the up-coming BC provincial election in May.
The show offers the voter an opportunity to speak their minds, and talk about the issues concerning them, no matter what their political affiliation, or lack thereof.
Listeners can tune in by clicking the link displayed above, at 7:00 pm on Wednesdays.
You can also email your questions and comments to the show: email@example.com . Your email may be read on air during the show.
The show’s host is Sal Vetro, our very own Party leader. Vetro feels that the people are not being listened to – in any way, shape or form, by other parties – and decided to change that by giving the people a voice – a place to be heard and listened to, where they can talk about the very issues that affect all families, right across British Columbia.
THIS WEEK’S SPECIAL GUEST Paul Caune - Executive Director of Civil Rights Now!!
Angry? Frustrated? Ready to explode?
Good. So are we.
Everything about the Boston College loss to Colorado State stinks. The Eagles blew a fourth quarter lead, failed to put up points in the final frame, and collapsed worse than a video board at UMass. These are the facts. They are indisputable.
So let it out. Dan and AJ are back on the air to discuss the multiple fronts on which everything went wrong. Send in your calls to talk about what happened, where the game went wrong, and how BC can fix it moving forward. Want to talk about the lethargic Eagle fans? We'll do it. Want to talk about the lack of an effective kicker? We'll do it. Want to talk about the defense's inability to make the stop when it mattered? We'll do it.
Give us a call. 646-200-0446. We're mad. You're mad. Let's be mad together.
WANTED - 44 Snake Oil Sales Agents to Pass the BC Budget
By Sal Vetro
One less non-compliant MLA and the BC Budget, in a non-confidence vote is defeated.
This latest BC Budget could have provided an extra few dollars to people with disabilities, seniors and autistic children. But, all we got were false promises and a pie in the sky prosperity fund anticipated revenues sometime in 2020. Instead, we have wasted taxpayer dollars being spent on a 15-million-dollar BC Liberal propaganda campaign, and a 12-million-dollar Bollywood festival, which has no track record of success. All to buy Indo-Canadian votes in the looming provincial election. Is this a wise expenditure of taxpayer dollars? I think not.
Our party, BC First, has a responsibility and a mandate to inform British Columbians of an incompetent, mismanaged, out-of-control government with no transparency or accountability to taxpayers. I don’t think the taxpayers will fall for the same old line, which goes, “Just trust us and accept what we tell you as the truth.”
To ‘Have Your Say’ about the new BC Budget, tune into the ‘BC Politics Blog Talk Radio Show this Wednesday, February 20th from 7-9:00pm. This week’s special guest will be BC First’s resident economic advisor, Erik Andersen. Andersen, now retired, will break down and explain what the budget means to BC’s working class and their families. I’m thinking we’re looking at higher taxes and more fees. What do you think? Call in and let us know.
