Boston College defenseman Tommy Cross, a 2007 draft pick of the Bruins, could go on to play in even bigger games in Boston during his hockey career. But the Beanpot is still a special event, and it doesn't get much bigger in terms of college hockey.
Cross gave NESN an inside look at his Beanpot preparations and explained what he usually does on game days. From his morning omelette to attending class to calling his mother, NESN's cameras followed Cross around for the entire day leading up to the 60th Beanpot, which BC eventually won in thrilling fashion.
Check out the video above to see all of Cross' morning/afternoon game-day activities.
