Looks like Northeastern ain't fuckin' around this Super Bowl season. They've already issued statements informing all their students that if they go outside on Sunday during or after the Super Bowl, their asses are getting arrested. The statement:
The anxiety around the city - stay inside! When Boston sports teams were in previous championships, people took to the streets. Some were just walking around to hug or high-five other excited Bostonians, some were cheering – but there was also significant rioting and excessive consumption of alcohol/drugs. This was true surrounding Boston college campuses as well. Near Fenway Park, a college student died tragically during a riot following the World Series in 2004. As a result, the Boston and Northeastern University Police Departments have asked us to keep people inside as much as possible. We don't believe that NU students will behave that way, but do we want you to be safe - being swept into such a crowd is dangerous because you don't have control of the decisions of others and the mood of the crowd can turn without warning. If you do choose to go outside during or after the Superbowl, know that you will likely be questioned and directed to go somewhere indoors as quickly as possible. If you refuse, you are subject to immediate arrest. Since an arrest could have serious consequences with OSCCR, for co-ops & jobs you apply for later, and your visa status if you are an international student ...just stay inside!
Yup. Crazy stuff people, crazy stuff. But can you really say it's uncalled for? I mean if we win that will be all well and good, and everyone should be allowed to go celebrate, but if we lose...
I don't even want to start. We can't handle another loss to the Giants. They took our perfect season from us. If we do anything less then destroy them, heads-will-ROLL.
Let's be honest, even if we win heads will roll (NY heads anyway). If you have a New York license plate, I suggest you park your car in a super secret high security underground garage somewhere or that bitch is finna get flipped over and lit up like a Christmas tree. If you wear anything even loosely related to the state of NY, understand that you're getting punched in the face (yes, that goes for girls too). Over here in Boston, we're really just a sweet sweet city made up of a bunch of sports crazed lunatics; f-ing shit up for our teams is what we do.
So, while I can't exactly say I stand with Northeastern on this one, I feel them on it. At least they know what's gonna happen and they're keeping their campus safe.
