Hope everyone is enjoying their summer. Congrats to the LA Kings for winning the Stanley Cup.
As I worked for a few years doing freelance sports writing and covering the Kings, it was wicked awesome seeing Dustin Brown carrying the Stanley Cup down the red carpet at the Encore Theatre in Las Vegas for the NHL Awards.
Although, when LA won it, I didn’t cry a blue streak the way I did when Captain Z and his posse won it in 2011.
(Hey, it’s Boston, THAT’S DIFFERENT!)
Speaking of things different, Zach, Zach, why?
I know you’re saying it’s not about all the dead prez’ that Minnesota threw at you, but family.
In the years that you played in beautiful downtown Newark, you couldn’t hop on a flight at EWR and fly into MSP to see the Parise clan?
Lou didn’t pay you enough to fly back and forth just so mama Parise could feed your ass?
That’s ok, Zach. Hope all that money that the Wild won’t be paying to Dany Heatley will keep you happy.
Meanwhile. Marty, the Moose, and Ilya Kovalchuk might just be having a little parade down the streets of beautiful Downtown Newark.
Yeah, it’s been a wicked long time since I posted. Congrats to KD and OKC for beating Tim and the Whiny Boys, AKA San Antonio Spurs. (Sorry you guys remind me of the Pittsburgh Penguins. Everybody and their mother thinks you’re the greatest thing since sliced bread.)
The Rangers should be playing the LA Kings for the Stanley Cup, but instead we’ve got Marty and his Posse.
Hell Yeah has to give a shout out to Dustin and the boys. I spent a lot of time at the Toyota Center watching you guys practice when I was a young freelance reporter in LA LA Land.
Who would have thought the Purple Reign would be fighting to bring Stanley to a big ass party in Santa Monica?
GET THAT CUP, BOYS!
If Teemu Selanne can get his name on the Stanley Cup why should Drew Doughty and the boys be left out of the fun?
Yes, gotta give my props to my “oldies but goodies” from my favorite city.
KG, Ray, The Truth and Rajon DO IT FOR BEANTOWN TONIGHT!
Let Bron-Bron keep his talents in South Beach.
We’re gonna have another duck boat parade on the Charles.
While going on the websites of Twitter, Washington Post and Boston Globe, let me say how UTTERLY DISGUSTED I am at some of you passing as hockey and Boston Bruins fans.
In case some of you didn’t know and not that it really matters, Joel Ward is a black Canadian player.
I don’t need to tell some of you how some people, posing as “hockey fans” reacted to this.
All I will say is, STOP THE FREAKING MADNESS PEOPLE!
It was a player for the Washington Capitals who just happens to be black that scored in overtime.
Not a nigger or sand negro like some of you idiots called him on twitter and in the TD Gardens.
I don’t need to give some of you a history of race relations in Boston because some of you know it allready.
Some of you may not.
WTF is wrong with some of you.
Don’t even insult us hockey fans and Boston Bruins by calling yourselves fans even though you may be rocking that Shawn Thornton, Tim Thomas or Chris Kelly jersey.
Today Boston, you not only lost the chance to win the Stanley Cup again, but unfortunately some of you showed the reason why a lot of athletes don’t want to play in a city that I, as a Black female is proud to call my favorite city.
Some of you ought to be ashamed to call yourselves Bostonians.
The Stanley Cup playoffs are going on and I wanted to talk about the games. Who woulda thought the Kings and Flyers would need one more game to eliminate the Canucks and Baby Boy and his posse.(That’s Sid the Kid and his entourage in case some of you didnt know who I was talking about. But some of you got it, God love ya!)
How about the Nashville series?
I said I WANTED to talk about the games but NO!
I want to know one thing-
WTF IS GOING ON HERE!?
Suspensions or lack there of by Shanahan.
Shanny what are you doing?
One of my hockey peeps said you’re using the “Wheel of Fortune” way to determine who should get fined and who should get suspended and for how many games.
Lemme see if I can get this right.
Carl hagelin gets 3 games for elbowing Daniel Alfredsson to the head
Shea Weber gets nada for his best impersonation of a WWE wrestler.
What are you gonna give Raffi Torres for sending Marian Hossa home early-TO THE HOSPITAL NO LESS?
Shanny the videos are a real joke now.
PLEASE STOP THE MADNESS AND STOP DOING THEM!
The players aren’t getting your message, but then, neither are the refs come to think of it.
The Commish wants non hockey fans to like our sport, but you guys sure ain’t making it easy. Jus’ sayin.
This is my favorite time of the year. Not only is there baseball, ( and Yankee fans Mo is entitled to blow a save. It’s ok. Gotta give it to the damn Devil Rays, Rays or whatever they’re calling themselves now. They’re a good team, give them some props.)
And need I remind my hockey peeps that this is the wicked best time of the year for us, too.
IT’S ALL ABOUT STANLEY AND THE CUP, BAYBEE!!!
Don’t know about you, but I was loving the fact that Baby Boy and his posse lost to the Flyers in OT last night.
I just couldn’t hold back my excitement as I was doing some multitasking- one ear listening to the Yankees and Orioles and my eyes glued to the computer watching the score from Da Burg.
I’M NOT EVEN A FLYERS FAN, I just like Claude Giroux and Danny Briere!
Go ORANGE AND BLACK.
Tonight it’s on here in NY and in my favorite city, my ‘home’ Boston.
Go B’s and Rangers.
Hell yeah Boston Rocks wants another parade down the streets of beantown. If not, a parade down the Canyon of Heroes here in NY will do, also.
Speaking of heroes, or sorry NOT!
SHEA WEBER! Shea, Shea wtf were you thinking?!
Dude, you’re one of my favorite hockey dudes but the crap you pulled last night and at the end of the game yet, sorry dude, you aint Chris Jericho, the Undertaker, or the Rock.
This is the NHL not the WWE.
STOP THE MADNESS, Shea.
You’re a better hockey player than that.
Shany ought to throw the book at your dumb ass, playoffs or not. Jus sayin.
Roenick says the hit was Letang’s fault because he knew he wasn’t going to get to the puck (even though he did get to the puck).
So it was kinda like during the Tampa-Rangers game at MSG when Shanahan said Fedotenkos own stick hit him in the head and not that elbow to the head that Dominic Moore gave him. Ok. Maybe the league shoulda picked somebody who ACTUALLY got hit in the head by an elbow or had a concussion to go to the video not Shanahan. Just sayin’
I wish the Super Bowl would come allready! I’m getting myself psyched up by listening to the Dropkick Murphy’s “I’m Shipping Up To Boston,” which is what the Super Bowl is going to be doing Sunday Night because we just dont have enough championship trophys in my fave city.
