Over at BC the day takes on even more epic proportions, where all classes are cancelled as the race runs right past campus making it impossible for teachers and commuter students to get there. It's basically just a huge excuse to get wasted…really wasted…like blackout by 11:00 AM wasted. The stringent community and campus official restrictions on drinking are relaxed for the day and an anything goes mentality pervades. In short it’s a total shit show and every college student’s dream.
White Guy 2: "Nah McDonough, today's the Boston Marathon; it's one of those Marathon Mondays."
"It's the day we all get drunk and run a marathon."
"Let's skip the marathon part and call it a holiday!"
