Quick Post!! The Boston Bruins are the CHAMPS. They did it. The last time the Boston Bruins won a Stanley Cup it was before I was born. And it could never be spoken about without the words “Bobby Orr” involved in the same breath.
That was a lot to live up to. And I think it’s been a shaky dynasty under Jeremy Jacobs, but finally, the Bruins have won a Stanley Cup and they had to play THREE game sevens to get there.
Congrats guys!! Now please shave!!
I would’ve loved to have seen my era of Bruins win – you know – Neely, Janney, Bourque and Wesley (who both went on to win with other teams), Burridge, All three Sweeneys (Don, Bob and Tim), Brickley, LB, Nilan, Lemelin and Moog. But, alas, it was not meant to be. But these guys played hard and I’m happy for them. I am still in awe of how HUGE Chara is. And I also explained to my nine-year old niece that I do believe Recchi was playing when I was her age. Her eyes got huge when she thought about how LONG ago that was. And the funnest trivia of this team: They have players on the team who were born in the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s!! Imagine being 19 years old and winning a Stanley Cup – Wow.
And speaking of my niece and nephew – they have no idea how lucky they are. Boston teams have brought home SEVEN championships in ten years. We are Title Town for sure!!! Woo!!
Last but not least, Tim “Terrific” Thomas. Wow. First an Olympian and now a Champion! Congrats Tim. I wouldn’t mind if you kept your beard though. That Brawny look works for you!!
Looking forward to another Duck Boat parade (yawn!),
