As reported by this site and relayed at Fear the Triangle, the David Boehm era at UMass has come to an abrupt end. We will miss Boehmer, not just for the awesome nicknames and catch phrases his name offers (not to mention the fact that he gave me a full box of Mona Vie juice while moving out last semester, having no room for it in his car), but for the tenacity he exhibited in his far-too-short time on the ice. We’re pretty sure we’ll remember him more for the game-winning goal against UNH than for the unfortunate injury and disciplinary problems that plagued his UMass career, and we wish him all the best in the USHL.
UMass hoops gets its first home game of the true semester tomorrow night against St. Bonaventure; I’ll use tomorrow as an opportunity to discuss the recent basketball action that got overlooked in light of the big hockey weekend.
Finally, a special welcome to the newest member of the blogging community: Mass Attack. More perspectives on the team can never be a bad thing, and besides, we’re glad to be off the hook as “newest bloggers on the block.”
