Its Beanpot time

Monday night a classic Boston tradition continued with the Beanpot Hockey Tournament. The tournament is held the first two weeks of February every year at th TD Banknorth Garden and its predecessor, the Boston Garden. It is the four major hockey schools in Boston competing for hockey bragging rights in the Hub. The first Monday in February consists of two semifinal matches and the winners of those play in the final the second Monday in February. Harvard, BU, BC and Northeastern compete for the crown. BU has the most championships and seems to win almost every year. It is always something to look forward especially in the "dead month" of February when it comes to sports. In the past the Beanpot has run 'under the shadow" of the Patriots Super Bowls since it starts the day after. However, it always made for a good "postgame after dinner drink")
