Hey all! I've been reading the blog for a while now, and I'd figure I would create an account to talk during Public Skates n' other stuff of the like.
I'm a college kid in New York from New Jersey who loves the Bruins. Fell in love with them back in the day because they had Sean O'Donnell, who I only really liked because we shared the same last name.
I kind of faltered on hockey for a few years until a girlfriend I had really revitalized my love of the sport, and she tried to convert me into a Rangers fan. She only made me fall in love with the Bruins again. Thank goodness.
My favorite Bruin as of late has been Carl Söderberg (The Elusive One). I'm hoping to add his jersey to my lonely Bobby Orr one.
I'm a collector of Bruins hats. I'm hoping to add the Veteran's day hat to my collection, making the tally seven. My hockey tradition is I have to wear a hat the entire game. If they lose, I have to put that hat away and not wear the specific hat until they win again. A child's logic is brilliant, idn'it? You don't want to see me hatless.
Also, I give occasional comments on NHL.com under the same name. Usually stoked, always Spoked.
...I like to make the NHL store in Rockefeller Center uncomfortable with my presence.
Hope to know all of you soon!
I'd love to get a bit of feedback, maybe fill me in on some of the references even though I've picked up a few over this season.
PS- I was hoping to comment on last game against the Penguins, but all I have to say is...
Loui. Loui you beaut.
