This is beautiful - and you even mentioned Dundock, home of The Shit Plant, where sometimes the olive oil factory springs a leak and and oil floods the streets, where a rainfall that doesn't submerge the pilings in Fells still somehow puts half of the shittiest peninsula in the world underwater. That Polish club is a fantastic place, there's also Dnipro (Ukrainian) on O'Donnell St, just if you want to hit all the shitty eastern European cultural dumps in a night. If you do it Halloween week, you can hit the Lithuanian Hall and take in The Night of 100 Elvises.

While you're at it, ponder the great tragedy of this life that that blossom-nosed homunculus Wayne (Mahaffey's) outlived the decent and upstanding Scunny (Mamas on the Half Shell). RIP Scunny, you were an outstanding human being.

I'll tell you what, if you make it on this odyssey around the corner to Little Italy (Germano's is my favorite place there - don't ever trust an Italian place that charges more than $14 for a puttanesca and half the places there do for some damn reason) and into Fells, you'll make it to Canton provided you don't do something like stagger past Captain James down Aliceanna, get propped, and pick a fight with a pimp. With Chubbys closed, this is the only risk I can think of these days.

I have a police blotter somewhere describing a stabbing in Dundock, at a bar, executed by (and I quote that shining beacon of journalism, The Sun) 'a local woman known only as Peaches'. She had been coming to the bar every day for years and no one knew her real name - just Peaches. One of my first Dundock experiences was watching a morbidly obese woman wearing spandex and a denim jacket with a Loony Tunes iron-on push a stroller full of beer out of a liquor store while her kid trailed behind her, in the middle of a weekday. A friend of mine is an artist, actually from Dundock, and a few years ago he circulated among friends a comic book called 'Dundalk Fairy Tales'; I don't remember all of them, because 'Rapunzel, Rapunzel, lit dahn yer weave' had me helpless with tears of laughter.

Dick, I may have to perform this unholy march and report back to you with the results. Once things normalize.

Sounds like Martin Juicebar''s man on the down low.

BC staff writer


Get the fuck out of here with this bullshit, and any other bullshit you'd file in the same folder. Argue if you want over the relative stability of the athletic departments; debate if you must the relative merits of living in Boston vs. LA. But Jarmond was never long for BC. Anyone who expected otherwise is an idiot. He came into a shit situation, made it better, and represented alma mater with energy and integrity. That he left for a professional opportunity he determined to be better is not a character flaw, or even the beginnings of a reason to speak ill of him.


Just think his tenure was highly overrated. raised a lot of money and landed Hafley (his biggest accomplishment as it stands now). that's pretty much it. like I said on BC twitter, I give him a B- (unless the rumors about him firing Alison Foley are true... in that case, he gets a C+).

p.s. members of the football team claim that he did not want to fire Daz either but the BOT forced his hand after some former players threatened to them they would stop donating immediately. so before we deify Juicebar, I think we need to stop and consider maybe he wasn't the savior people are making him out to be.


You should really stop peddling the false rumor on Jarmond wanting to keep Daz. It is not even logical.

If you have learned anything over the years the members of the team would be the last ones to know what really happened.

Again, the decision on Dazz had been made by Jarmond during the season. I heard about it in early November. He needed Leahy to bless it (which takes time). If he wanted to keep Dazz, Leahy would have supported it.

The purpose of the non-extension/extension the year before was that Jarmond wanted to move on from Dazz and Leahy said no.

Leahy is final word not the BOT. Also, as an FYI there is no former player or player(s) that has/have the stroke or donates enough money and gives that much of a shit to actually force the BOT's hand. This is the school that alienated the person that endowed the salary of the football coach without blinking.

Perhaps some coverage was thrown out to the team that there was football alumni unrest with Dazz that made Jarmond's job raising money more difficult but Jarmond was very much in favor of firing Dazz. In fact an argument could be made he knew he needed a major hire to get a new job so he had to fire Dazz to prove he can make a big time hire. :ace

Dick, I may have to perform this unholy march and report back to you with the results. Once things normalize.


I have made this journey once and it was beautiful. When I was in law school at the FLS diploma mill I was befriended by a classmate that I called Lord Baltimore. He was an exceedingly nice guy who became positively murderous if he was blind drunk and then provoked. Three weeks into our mutual law school careers he smashed the grandson of a former Governor of New York in the side of a head/face with a metal napkin dispenser in an Upper West Side pizza place because the Governor's grandson--who was both a Regis and Georgetown grad (read into that what you will)--talked shit about Lord Baltimore's alma mater, Mount Saint Mary's. I believe that Lord Baltimore was not expelled because said Governor's grandkid was a first rate dick and may have thrown a first feeble punch--he would quit law school a couple of weeks later.

Lord Baltimore had been a rarity in Baltimore, a white kid hoops star at Mount St. Joe's who originally went to a midwestern basketball power. He hated pretty much everything about the school and the Midwest in general and ended up transferring to Mount Saint Mary's to play for the legendary Jim Phelan and the Mounties who had just gone D1. He ended up in the Midwest because someone had given money to his Dad, a Canton bucket head who drove a truck and collected gambling debts for the Corbi Family.

Now interestingly enough, I have another friend from Charm City who is also commonly referred to as Lord Baltimore. As luck would have it the 2nd Lord Baltimore attended a fine Jesuit institution with a cousin of mine and parlayed his family's very successful business (I won't mention the name so as to avoid rocketcarring him) into a porn empire that he runs out of mansion on what used to be an old money horse farm in the area northeast of Caves Valley and southwest of Cockeysville--I think its called Worthington. He casts Baltimore area strippers interspersed with coeds from Towson, UMBC and the occasional girl from Loyola along with a couple of "name stars". He apparently makes a lot of money in this venture and is using some of his profits to set up a state of the art pot farm out past Hagerstown that will open when Maryland gets around to legalizing marijuana for recreational use. He also has a picture of himself with a very dead Johnny Unitas--he apparently was dating the girl whose family owned the funeral home where Johnny was prepared for his funeral and he went in when they were setting him up for the wake (Unitas was in a suit, sitting in chair in preparation of being placed in his casket and Lord Baltimore the 2nd is in a suit sitting next to him with an insane grin on his face--which in fairness is his default expression.

Now, getting back to the 1st Lord Baltimore, after he graduated from the diploma mill, he returned to Baltimore and started out as an associate at Venable before parlaying that job into a non-legal gig at Legg Mason, where he remains today. In any case, he did well for himself and purchased a couple of very nice adjoining brownstone-style row houses on Federal Hill and connected them and fashioned them into something of a party house in the early 2000s. He also obtained some very sweet Ravens' season tickets and some of us would occasionally jump on the Metroliner (I lived in Manhattan in those days) and head down to Baltimore for a game.

Now, in one instance, I ended up heading down on a Friday night because Lord Baltimore was having a house party of some sort. It was an excellent party, but as the Ravens' game was not until Sunday, it left me with a Saturday to spend in Charm City. The day started in ordinary enough fashion with some lunch and a few drinks at Mother's, which has become a cliche at this point, but back then was as good a place to start as any in Federal Hill. We wended our way through a couple of other places on Federal Hill--there was a very good whiskey bar that has since closed--before finding ourselves in the Inner Harbor. We were tossed out of the Rusty Scupper for a relatively minor transgression--there was no violence, but perhaps a bit of profanity--before we staggered over to Little Italy where we ate dinner at some mobbed up mom and pop where the owner was an associate with Lord Baltimore's father. The food was excellent and cheap and fortified us as we entered Fells Point. We hit The Horse and began on the road to ruin. It only took about ten minutes for us to get kicked out of Max's and after Lord Baltimore violently assaulted a pirate statue and a bouncer in front of the Admiral's Cup or some fucking place like it we found ourselves exiled from the Point and returned to Lord Baltimore's neighborhood of Canton. We started off in some place that looked like it came out of a scene in Eastern Promises--except it was Poles, Lithuanians and Ukranians instead of Russians. There was another bar that shared space with a Polish Butcher Shop where we ran into Lord Baltimore's Dad who eyed me suspiciously and remarked that "Irish and Italian kids from Fordham always work for the FBI", but he eventually must have been assuaged and it was then that I was invited to join him and Lord Baltimore at the Polish Home Club. At the PHC we were joined by one of Lord Baltimore's father's associates--a younger specimen of bucket head mob muscle who would soon be out of work (the Corbi's were taken down as collateral damage by a Gambino family rat). He invited Lord Baltimore and I to join him at a bar in Dundalk that was open despite it being well past closing time. Lord Baltimore's father did not approve and Lord Baltimore was sentient enough to recognize that it was folly and when we left the PHC instead of getting into the cab for Dundalk, he threw up on the sidewalk, tossed me the keys to the Federal Hill house and stumbled off to his parents nearby apartment.

Some things are better left forgotten, so I will not comment on what I witnessed and experienced in Dundalk other than to say that the girl who drove me back to Lord Baltimore's place in Federal Hill shortly after sunrise was younger than 25, worked as a stripper and had at least two kids at that point judging from the child seats in the back of the car. Fortunately, she passed out in the driver's seat of her car within one minute of arriving in front of Lord Baltimore's home. I abandoned her, went into the house and went to sleep. Lord Baltimore arrived home at Noon and when we went out to pregame shortly thereafter in the lead up to the 4 pm kickoff, the young stripper Mom was still passed out in her car. When we got home after the game so I could pick up my stuff before heading g to the train station, she was gone, but there was a copious amount of vomit on the street right where her driver's side door would have opened.

Am just catching up on things here but I will say that part of what makes a city interesting and fun to go out drinking and exploring in is when it's run down enough so that people can afford to be weird in it. You get things like the basement clubs Dick is describing or the bar in Buffalo that has live music 24 hours a day or the illegal karaoke bar I went to in a VFW in.... Cleveland? I think?

You can't afford to be weird in Boston anymore unless you got a trust fund and in that case all you seem to want to do with it is go the Seaport and spend money at stupid clubs.

The best thing MJ did while at BC was FINALLY firing Addazio and hiring Jeff Hafley from Ohio State. I thanked him in person for that.

He hired a great Women's Basketball Coach, too.

But his failure to fire JC and actually give him an extension is just inexcusable.

Too many workout videos, surprise guest appearances at tailgates and the Clothing Line were too much - while he let Daz and JC run two of our biggest programs into the ground.

So, all in all...moving on...Godspeed, MJ.

Jeff Hafley and his team are phenomenal right now...the future looks BRIGHT!! Just need to hire someone to take care of Hoops.

Correct, amendments to the 2007 IMP for the IPF were filed in November 2016 and MJ Peloton did not arrive until June 2017.

Never heard it and don't think anyone would miss them. That said, if UA is walking from multiple deals, they've decided to get out of the NCAA sponsorship thing all together. They only had like 10 properties. It's one thing to walk from the largest deal (that is producing nothing) When they are walking from nickel and dime deals... UA is turning into And1.

I thought I read somewhere that they just re-upped with Texas Tech

Edit: https://www.lubbockonline.com/sports/20200625/texas-tech-announces-4-year-deal-with-under-armour

I would be curious to see what happens with UA in the future. Is ridding themselves of these huge obligations some kind of precondition for a sale or take private since the company has struggled the last few years ?

I would think any school will think twice about signing a contract with UA now that this precedent has been set. So if they are not exiting the space, have to think growing within the space is going to be impossible. I personally like the BC/UA relationship and hope they stick with it. I cant imagine BC signed some massive contract with UA so if this is some kind of selective exit from the space (UCLA/Cal because they were such insane deals) then I could see BC sticking around. Theyre clearly not exiting if TT announced a few days ago.

I don't expect UA to bail on BC considering the deal is almost up. I would also be shocked if both sides had any interest in renewing. Kraft just dealt with Under Armour breaking their Temple deal. Temple moved to Nike. Unless we get a new bidder in the mix (New Balance?) we are looking at a smaller deal since it will be Addidas and Nike lowballing us.

Looks like the contract extends through 2024. Interestingly, Temple signed their "10-year" extension at the same time. But, 5-years "mutually" agreed to part ways: https://www.inquirer.com/college-sports ... 00408.html

Here is a link to the Cal/UCLA article: https://www.ft.com/content/52d24220-968 ... 43c7871f14
What's interesting is that they claim they've provided marketing with no return. So, I guess that BC is contractually safe since UA has never marketed anything on our behalf ever. My guess is that UA is using some sort of McKinsey, BCG or Accenture to find "inefficiencies". In doing so, they have engaged in an effort to only have sponsorships at what they deem economically viable. So, 30mm for Temple, 85mm for Cal and 280mm for UCLA were all outside those thresholds. BC may be on tap since it seems that the UA spending spree occurred at the same time as our last extension.

I'm unsure of the economics. I have no idea what Nike would offer or what Adidas would pay. If we could get a formidable contract with either, jump. But, if we are looking at dimes on the dollar, I would like to see BC go in an entirely different direction (zig when everyone is zagging). For instance, becoming NB's version of Oregon. Or, cross-asset the franchise (Adidas for FB, Nike for BB). Or, greatly loosen licensing to be available for every label such that you flood the market so much that decades from now remote villages in Africa will be wearing our Hanes-branded gear (courtesy of Peace Corps or Catholic Charities).

Boston College in discussions with Under Armour over existing contract

“We have been in discussions with Under Armour regarding our current agreement to supply our athletics department with apparel and footwear,” said BC interim athletic director JM Caparro, who will be replaced by Patrick Kraft on July 1.

“We will continue those conversations with the primary focus on doing whatever is best for our student athletes and athletics department here at Boston College.”

Whelp... it sounds like UA is largely exiting the sponsorship game. Since Kraft has been through this rodeo at Temple, I assume we will soon have a similar outcome.

But... speaking of UCLA challenges awaiting Marty (and perhaps soon Kraft at BC)... Learfield IMG looking to back out of their deals with Cal and UCLA.

If I recall UA overbid by a wide margin to win the BC contract. Their bid might have been double the closest competitor? Champion has started making a comeback... :ace
