Bruins in the Beltway

This afternoon, the Boston Bruins were honored by President Obama at the White House for winning the 2011 Stanley Cup. The President spoke for a bit, chided the city of Boston for having too many championship teams, called out Brad Marchand (“Little Ball of Hate?  What’s up with that nickname?”), and posed with the team […]

Shout Out to the Boys in the Black and Gold

I think the Bruins are the best team in hockey. Yea. I said it. The Boston Bruins are the best team in the NHL. Now before you start heckling me and throwing rotten tomatoes and heads of iceberg lettuce,  just hear me out for second. I know that I may be slightly biased here when […]

Pomp and Circumstance

This whole grad school business is going to seriously cut into my hockey watching time. Class this semester is on Thursdays, which means that I’m going to have to tape alot of games this year, only to watch them when I get home at 9:30pm. Chuck no likey. Yesterday, I taped the Bruins game (natch) […]

Rumor Has It … Rumor Has It… Rumor Has it.

I’m leaving him for YOU. Cue Adele. Well. I heard a rumor that DDTBG was holding out for more dough, ah, I mean signing with the Kings because he was waiting to see what Shea Weber was going to do during his arbitration. Why you ask? Well the mill said he felt he was on […]

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 […]

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 […]

Waiting for Tonight…

I’m like a kid on Christmas morning! Is this really happening?  Is the team that I’ve rooted for and cheered for all season really in the Stanley Cup Finals? Hell ya, they are! Bruins and Canucks will face off at 8pm EST in Game 1 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals.  I’m supposed to have […]

What If ..

After Tampa Bay beat Boston in Tampa Bay for Game 6, Nathan Horton purposely picked up a water bottle and sprayed a Tampa Bay fan with a water bottle and then threw it at the fan as he left the ice for the locker room. Yes, the fan was yelling something at him but so were […]

It'll only takes one…

The Bruins are one win away from the Stanley Cup Finals. One win.  One measly little win. It is so close, we can taste it. Yesterday’s 3-1 win over the Lightning was not pretty by any means, but it is a “W” nonetheless. Bruins’ d-men looks shaky and slow.  Communication between Timmay and ZC33, AF21, […]

It's On!

Now that you won’t be able to get this song out of your head, it’s the battle of the Super Twins, Count Von Count-anyone-can-do-this-job VS. Jumbo Scrimp (Oxy-Maroon), I’m-still -Cryin’ Patty Mar-where’s-the-loo and Logan Haute-Couture. Who will win the West-Coast Battle for the Cup? I called Vancouver in the Wayback Machine. On the East Coast […]

Back in da day: Timmy and Martin

We present to you Timmy “The Tank” Thomas and Martin “Squishy” St. Louis, circa 1996… BABY HOCKEY PLAYERS!! Watch the awesome video, complete with stellar 90′s soundtrack! In 1996, Pants and I were juniors in high school.  She had a curly afro and I had reaaaally long hair and wore Doc Martens. In 1996, the […]

Going All The Way

So this happened last night.  And if you expected something else, you must be new around here. Gator was particularly excited, and posted a photo of an Ice Girl picking up an octopus on my door this morning.  She had faith.  And we’re ready for Thursday’s Game 7.  I want to rock my Sharks jersey […]

On the Bright Side of the Street

Lately it has been a little doom and gloom around here.  And with some good reason, I’ll agree. First, the Pens lose and Pants was very sad, yet hopeful that Mikey and the boys can ease her pain. Then, the Mikey and said boys get swept up like dust bunnies by Steve Stamkos, “Father Time” […]

Adopt-A-Cause.

I really do. I was there last year. My caps went out in the first round. This was me last year. But I lived through it. And you will too. You are better than this and your men need you. Maybe not your team but there are others out there in the trenches fighting, that […]
