Opinion: Predictions for 2014

As the New Year is almost upon us, your Opinions Editor has decided to take some educated stabs at what each month of 2014 will bring, whether it be BC-related or future current events (see what I did there? That was terrible, I apologize).

January - Florida State beats Auburn in the BCS National Championship, 53-37.

February - Panthers beat Broncos in the Super Bowl, 30-21. Luke Kuechly is Super Bowl MVP, and sets record for most tackles in a Super Bowl.

March - Basketball coach Steve Donahue is fired after a 10 win season and 1st round exit in ACC tournament. Bobby Knight is coaxed out of retirement. Tempers flare. Chairs are thrown. Chaos ensues.

April - Jerry York and the Eagles win the NCAA hockey championship against Minnesota.

May - John Kerry gives commencement speech to the Class of 2014. Anti-abortion protestors, still enraged by the selection of Enda Kenny last year, show up again. No one cares.

June - Yours truly is going to be feeling 22.

July - Amazon starts using drones to deliver purchases straight to your door. It is quickly taken to court over various charges of the drones suddenly becoming self-aware and peeping into bedrooms across the country.

August - BC shuts out newly-Spazzed UMass 50-0 in the season opener. #fireSpaz chants ring out in Amherst.

September - Convocation. Overeager freshmen ask questions about a book that they haven’t even read to the author of said book.

October - World Series: Texas Rangers beat the Los Angeles Dodgers.

November - Congressman Peter King, formerly a notorious fundraiser for the Irish Republican Army and currently the epitome of a hypocrite in all that he does, finally loses his seat after 12 terms. Hopes for a 2016 presidential run are quashed.

December - BC goes 8-4 in Steve Addazio’s second season with the Eagles, and is selected to play in the Sun Bowl in El Paso, Texas.

You have 24 hours to give prospective students a tour of BC and convince them to enroll. How do you spend the day? I’d take them to Seth Jacob’s Vietnam class to show off the academics, then head over to Gasson, Stokes, and Bapst…then Conte Forum for a hockey game, and then a trip to some Mod parties.
If you could go back in time and give yourself a pep talk the night before you moved into BC as a freshman, what is the most important piece of advice that you would give to your former self? Keep calm and things will fall into place.
What is your favorite study spot on campus? Usually my desk in my dorm room or a table in my common room.
What is your go-to meal at Late Night? Mozzarella sticks (pronounced muz-zuh-elle in my Brooklynese/Long Island accent) paired up with a Honey Q Wrap, with Blue cheese and without the tomato
What is the best Halloween costume that you have ever worn? This is a tough one. Probably the Michael Jackson costume that I’ve worn the past 2 years, possibly soon to be 3 come this October.
If you could only eat at one restaurant for the rest of your life, which would you choose? Let's go Outback tonight.
