Congrats dude.The Boston Bruins are Stanley Cup Champions.
Did that really happen? What a playoff run this year and I still can't fully grasp that the Bruins won it all. Congrats to the Canucks, they are a hell of a team. It was just the Bruins' and Tim Thomas' year I guess.
My daughter was born between games 2 and 3 and I told everyone she was going to be our good luck charm. The Sox have been tearing it up since she was born as well.
Tim Thomas is one of the greatest sports stories ever. Can't wait for the parade.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
Now that I have sobered up, I apologize for my asshattery. Was an amazing series and I can't be any more thankful for my team to have given me an extra month of their hearts and souls. It's really too bad that they fell apart at the seams and couldn't keep the games close at all. The spectacular play of Chara, Marchant, Recchi and of course TimmyTom dictated the series while the Sedins fizzled and the power play that got the Nucks to the finals was non-existant.
Thomas wrote his magnum opus and presented the masterpiece to the world on the center stage. Behind the Bruins devastating defense sat Thomas, who fueled the steamrollers in front of him with each one of his amazing saves.
Goddamn, I hate the Bruins but I respect them.
PS - Grats RH, does your magic baby provide the spread for the Red Sox games as well?
