For those of you who have forgotten the Whalers, they are that team that used to play hockey in a shopping mall down in Connecticut. You may remember them as the team that you would occasionally catch on Sports Channel while waiting for a West Coast Celtics game to come on.
I have a solution for all those hockey fans in the Nutmeg State wishing for a return to the "glory days" of Pat Verbeek, Andrew Cassels, and Glen Wesley: migrate North and become a Bruins fan. Now is the time to jump on the Black & Gold bandwagon. I know the B's could never replace your beloved Whale, but it's still better than identifying yourself as a Hartford Wolfpack fan and way more respectable than being a Carolina Hurricanes fan. Don't lie, I know you have a half Whalers/ half Canes jersey hanging in your closet. The first step to recovery is to admit you have a problem.
Hockey fans in Connecticut will have an opportunity to catch a taste of Bruins hockey today when the Baby B's take on the Lil' Islanders in Shelton, CT.
I am welcoming any Connecticut hockey fan who wants to jump on the Bruins bandwagon. Especially, these young ladies...
