There’s nothing I can say or add to what’s already been said everywhere regarding the Habs-Bruins game tonight. We know it’s a big game for both, we know the Bruins will be degenerate sloths, and we know Carey Price needs to be sharp.
And I don’t wish serious injury to any of the Bruins. Just several days in a hospital, maybe the odd puck to the teeth and a few skate blades to the nether regions.
All I’ll say is that I despise the Bruins as much as anyone on the planet and it’s been that way for a long, long time.
Their fanbase leaves much to be desired too, and in racking my brain, I can come up with just three Bruins fans I consider decent people, – Diane in Boston, Roger in Ottawa, and my next door neighbour in Orillia when I was a kid. The rest look and act like the general population at San Quentin.
Charles Manson is probably a Bruins fan.
There was that guy last week behind the Jets bench in Winnipeg shown on the news, wearing a Bruins jersey and hurling obscenities at Jets coach Claude Noel, and the Bruins weren’t even playing. There was the crowd of Bruins fans surrounding a young Montreal fan in the washroom in Boston a few years ago while he was trying to pee. And on and on and on.
All one has to do is type “Bruins fans” on YouTube” and you get a clear picture that many of these folks are missing key genes.
