This means something. This is important.

…the words of the great Weird Al Yankovic, pondering over a pile of mashed potatoes in his film UHF. (A classic, by the way. Oh, and I think that line was in another film you might have seen, but whatever.)

Anyway, what means something? What’s important? Oh, you know, just the POSSIBILITY OF NCAA TEAMS COMING TO EA’S NHL HOCKEY FRANCHISE. Feast your eyes:

“We’ve actually been in discussions with EA for a couple of weeks,” Kelly began, “and while we don’t have a formal announcement to make at this moment, we are certainly in discussions with EA Sports and they are very interested in having a college component to their game. We, the colleges, are very interested in having that happen and we are just currently in the process of figuring out what dimensions that aught to take. The answer to your question though is ‘YES’ just as there is going to be a CHL component to the video game, there will be a college hockey component as well.”

Yesyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyesyes. It’s 2 am, I’m tired, I’m hot (okay, that’s a lie, air conditioning rules), and I’m lamenting the possibility of not one but two Boston pro sports franchises pulling a Yankees this spring.

Whatever. This is the best news I’ve heard in quite some time.


Edit: OH NOES LOL MATT ALSO POSTED THE SAME STORY. You know what? It bears repeating.
