Boston Wins! (In the Beanpot Tournament, Anyway)

I'm sure Boston-area sports fans are looking for something to help wash away the bad taste from the Patriots' Super Bowl loss last night, and the Beanpot may be just the thing.

The Beanpot is an annual college hockey tournament in Boston where you can see some of the best collegiate hockey players in the country. The Beanpot tournament begins today, and there are both men's and women's divisions.

And here's the good news for Beantown fans who are feeling blue: a Boston team will win the Beanpot! That's because all four teams in the annual Beanpot tournament are from Boston or its suburbs: Boston College, Boston University, Northeastern University, and Harvard University.

The tournament is held at the TD Banknorth Center, or whatever the arena is called these days, in downtown Boston. The men's first games are this afternoon and tonight; the next games are a week from today. The women start play tomorrow and then play continues a week from tomorrow.

Forget about the Super Bowl, and go bring that Beanpot home for your school!
