NFL Football Fans Sport Cute Little Costumes
WALSH HALL — With the fall semester underway at Boston College and no social events for the foreseeable future, Eagles on campus remain anxious about what the upcoming months will look like. Despite so much uncertainty, some hope was restored among much of the student body earlier this month amidst the return of a familiar pastime: the five-month period where every Thursday, Sunday, and Monday, students across campus are seen proudly strutting their stuff in Cute Little Costumes.
Witnesses explained that Zack Davis (CSOM ’23) often says that wearing his Cute Little Costume makes him feel like he is a part of something larger than himself.
“Yeah, with everything going on, it feels good to throw on my jersey on a Sunday morning and rep that name on my back while I slam some brews with my boys,” Davis reportedly said.
Friends of Ted Rau (MCAS ’22), a Patriots fan, noticed that he often talks about how things just don’t feel the same for him this football season — and not just because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“Not seeing Tom Brady mouth kiss his preteen son has really changed the energy of the team,” Rau is reported to have said. “I miss the emphasis on family values, but I’ll still wear my jersey every gameday.”
Though students will not have the opportunity to black out in expensive parking spaces cheering on the BC Eagles this fall sporting their maroon and gold, they still have the comfort of observing the weekly uniformity of NFL fans across campus who love to wear their Cute Little Costumes every gameday.
At press time, a pack of freshman boys was seen scurrying up the Upper staircase decked out in Giants and Bills Costumes, reflecting the regional diversity of the Boston College student population.
