Max Wolpoff and Andrew Mason are in a celebratory mood after watching Women’s hockey defy history and win the Beanpot on Tuesday. Add in Andrew’s visiting friend, Francisco Molina, and this creates a great time.

In addition to hearing about Andrew’s high school basketball career, it is time to preview the busiest weekend in BU sports. Pretty much every team is home on Saturday and you should go to as many games as possible.

Saturday sees three double-headers: hockey at Agganis Arena, basketball at Case Gym, and lacrosse at Nickerson Field. The teams all need wins and need your support.

Francisco jumps back in once the conversation turns to Antonio Brown and his continuing saga in Pittsburgh, as well as the latest on Bryce Harper and Manny Machado. A few suggestions later, the three have a wide-reaching discussion on the nature of of player power in modern sports.
