Northeastern 101 and Jay Z

In response to Dave’s BC-loving “Happy” video post last week, I present “Northeastern State of Mind.” Northeastern invented the set-a-fun-video-to-a-popular-hip-hop-song thing back in 2010. But we did it grassroots style. If you need cribs notes for the Northeastern-themed references, let me know. Crazy to think that even some of the references aren’t relevant to the Northeastern students now. Note — the Burger King turned into a Panera in 2011. RIP Burger King.

They say more snow is coming this weekend.

I say, bring on Red Sox spring training!

Tomorrow the Red Sox face off against Northeastern University’s and Boston College’s baseball teams, albeit with their relievers, down in Fort Myers, Florida.

While teammates Williams, Pesky, Doerr, and DiMaggio back in Boston may be getting a bit more than a dusting – sources are calling for “plowable” snow – think about that mid-80’s-and-sunny weather going on in Florida and the lucky ones of Red Sox Nation who are getting an early preview of this year’s team.

Bet you’re wishing you stowed away with the gear on Truck Day, huh?

Whether it’s more snow or past photos from games at “The Cathedral of Boston,” share them with us on We Love Beantown’s Flickr – we’ll help you dig out from this storm if you do!

(I’ve got some serious shovel envy after missing Nemo.)
