Only When We Wake Up…

Did that really just happen?  I keep waiting to wake up and find that it was all just some horrible nightmare.  I’m Leo Dicaprio, spinning that totem, waiting for it to keep spinning to let me know that this is some cruel inception. But unfortunately it is not. Game 6 really did happen. The Bruins […]

Every Movie Needs a Montage

I love me a good montage and this one especially awesome. Firstly because it all about the Bruins (natch). And secondly because they use Russell Crowe to narrate. I love me some Russell Crowe.  Just ask Pants. His voice + the Bruins…I’m having ALL the feels. created by ‘trigger687′

Raiders of the Stanley Cup

Everyone knows that any nerd movie worth watching involves some sort of an epic quest – a quest for something so important, powerful, that it could forever change the course of human history. Lord of the Rings.  Star Wars.  The Goonies. Tonight at 8pm in the Madhouse on Madison, another quest will begin. Warriors will […]

Chuck’s Friday Night

Let me preface this by saying that I’m not typically a girl that goes to bars alone. Mainly, because it makes me feel more acutely single than I already do and also because I try not to drink alone. Last Friday, I set aside my rule and ventured out to my local in the pouring […]

One Win Away…

So Game 5 didn’t exactly turn out as we hoped, but tonight, the Kings have the chance to close out the series (again) and win their first ever Stanley Cup. While we don’t like the Devils, we have to give them props for not laying down in front of the purple and black freight train […]

Kings Of The Road

If any of you have watched NBC’s Post Game wrap-up, then you know Other-Brother-Darryl needs to take that sh*t on the road! Because having handled talent and sat through countless hours of interviews and seen press chewed up and spat out by the best, Other-Brother-Darryl ranks right up there only he is god damn funny […]

Stanley Cup Finals Beard Appreciation Post

At 8pm EST tonight, the puck will drop on THE greatest sports champion series in the world. Obviously, we’re slightly biased because we pretty much eat, sleep, and breathe hockey since we’ve started this blog.  I mean, not like we didn’t follow hockey closely before WUYS but we’ve progressed to a Beautiful-Mind-writing-on-the-window level of crazy.  But […]

Our Post on Puck Daddy – SCF Preview: Best Beards

If you go seven months without seeing an acquaintance, you might greet them with, “Wow, you look so….” The word the Devils and Kings need here is hairy. These teams last met in October and it’s a wonder if they’d recognize each other now without the numbers on their backs. Each team has been presented with […]

Kilroy Was Here

There is no accounting for taste in our household. Traitors abound. Mr. Cherrie is a hard-core Buffalo fan.  But when I went to consult my bookie, I mean my oracle- the great swami Osiris Jones, man about town and counselor at law, when he’s not picking NHL play-off games for cat treats, much to my horror this is what […]

The Bear is Back.

He’s back…and he’s ready for some puck, ya’ll. Check out his new video, co-starring Brad “Motoscooter” Marchand here. Also, notice what is on top of Bear’s “Cup”. That ain’t no colander…

Because We Say So.

It’s time to predict the eventual winners for the 2011-2012 season, so we can look smart and important when spring rolls around.  Or not.  Last year we all picked some combo of the Caps, Blackhawks, Canucks and Penguins [link].  That 25% result is less than the chance that Intern Jeff Skinner’s going to take you […]

Put a Ring on it.

A Stanley Cup ring, that is. Check that out!  That ring = boss. 300 diamonds total.  66 on the ring crest with the iconic spoked “B” over the image of the Stanley Cup.  6 diamonds around the logo signifying the Bruins’ six Cup championships.  One side has the player’s name and number, other side has […]

NHL Preview: ESPN Magazine

The October 3rd ESPN Magazine comes with this cover: The feature “Why Boston is Better than You” notes that the Bruins (and most NHL teams in general) do not use advanced metrics as a statistical model for designing teams.  My favorite part: “The Stanley Cup they won last year, while a lovely capstone for Boston […]

Bye Bye Beardy?

Who’s gonna keep their playoff beard?  Who’s ready to say goodbye? Check out 0:23 mark. Best faces ever! Someone please GIF these for us.  Please?

Bromances EVERYWHERE!

When hockey players are this happy, so are we. So much love. [brightcove vid=995747704001&exp3=16977198001&surl=http://c.brightcove.com/services&pubid=245991542&pk=AQ~~,AAAAAA6piHY~,DqRT40XOAr8wI0s0AlLx8-XNKKxaCNBM&w=440&h=356]

Yes, that really did happen.

“The Bruins have won the Stanley Cup!” Those words will live with me for the rest of my life. For the first time since 1972, the Black and Gold have won the most beauteous and shiniest of all trophies in professional sports.  The Bruins defeated the Vancouver Canucks, a team which lead the regular season […]

Bear vs. Orca

Well, here we are. Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. Bruins vs. Canucks. East vs. West. Bear vs. Orca. For fans of both teams, tonight will be a special game.  History will be made. Bruins have the opportunity to win their first Cup in 39 years.  Canucks have the chance to win their first […]

Chuck checks one off her bucket list.

Last night, I had the time of my life. Just like Baby in “Dirty Dancing.”  Except instead of Johnny Castle, I had Tim Thomas. Thanks to a one very awesome friend, I was at Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals at TD Garden. Bruins shutout the Canucks, 4-0  to even the series 2-2.  Series […]

Mess with the Bear, You get the Claws

The Boston Bruins came into Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals last night needed a win to avoid going down 3-0 to the Vancouver Canucks. Well, they got that win…and then some. They mauled the Canucks with their big, sharp claws. Bear’s Victory Dance is well deserved. Bruins play best when they are infuriated.  Aaron Rome gave […]

I Get Knocked Down…But I Get Up Again…

Last night’s game was the most exhilarating, exciting, intense Stanley Cup Finals game that I have seen in recent memory. It also happened to be totally crappy and soul-sucking. As the tornado watch loomed over the city of Boston, the thunder boomed, and lightning lit up the sky like a Polish dyskotekya, the Bruins were […]
