It's the doldrums of another long offseason for the Bruins. That sucks. What also sucks: finding enough fun things to entertain you guys, in and around trying to bring you informative coverage of the team. But let's be honest: nothing is happening right now, and nothing is probably going to happen until about the middle of June.
We've decided to fill the space with this 30-day challenge! Every day we will give you, our Chowder commentariat, a topic to discuss, and we'll give a few staff answers on the topic as well. We're borrowing this idea from Second City Hockey, who borrowed it from SB Nation's wrestling blog, who borrowed it from...tumblr, probably.
It goes without saying but please respect everyone's stories and opinions - there's no right way to be a fan, and we're hoping to get lots of fun anecdotes out of some of these topics.
Day 4: What is your favorite place to watch the Bruins?
Heather: My favourite place to watch any hockey game is with my face pressed up against the glass. Pretty sure I'm going to end up with a concussion one of these days.
Sarah: My favorite place is the back of the loge at TD Garden. You're close enough to the ice to get the ambiance but far enough back that you can still see plays develop. Outside the garden, the people and staff at Lir on Boylston have made that bar one of my go-to favorites for watching any hockey.
Sky: TD Garden. Hockey is a sport best experienced in person. Otherwise, I've always enjoyed having most of the family gathered in a living room snarking at things the commentators are saying or reacting to everything in a game.
Cornelius: My favorite place to watch the Bruins is in the arena, whether that arena is TD Garden, or the Bell Center, or the O2 arena in Prague, or some other arena. Hockey barns are fantastic. If I can't watch in person, you can find me at The Fours.
