Boston University freshman ANDREW RASMUSSEN (third from left), texting at the conclusion of the Terriers' 4-3 first-round Beanpot win as referees review -- and wave off a Harvard goal that came after the buzzer, Feb. 2, 2009 --
"I'm sitting up top, and my friend Chuck, who goes to Northeastern, is sitting right across in the Northeastern section. My friend was texting me all game, telling me how Harvard was going to win and how BU was going down. He sent me a message saying, 'Hey, fun fact for you, Harvard's winning this game.' I couldn't let the reputation of my school be debated. So I sent him back a message saying, 'No way. BU owns the Beanpot ' It was so clearly not a goal -- it was like five seconds after. I didn't get to enjoy the moment but putting him in his place was well enough enjoyment for me. I look terrible. It makes me look like one of those people that go to the game just because it's the Beanpot. It's so embarrassing, but it's pretty funny, too. I'm definitely not a nerd. I'm going to be there Monday night to watch BU win; but I'll probably leave my phone home."
