Six years ago today...

New, comment

Summer is a great time for throwbacks, and this is the best of the best.

You remember exactly where you were six years ago today.

The anticipation building throughout the work day. The lucky routines. The superstitions.

The thought that would hit you throughout the day: “Man...the Bruins are going to either win or lose the Stanley Cup tonight.”

* gulp *

Of course, you remember everything about the game too.

The early huge saves from Tim Thomas. The hush that went over the crowd when Patrice Bergeron scored the first goal. The “what a move!” when Brad Marchand scored the second.

The “there’s no way they’re going to count that!” when Patrice Bergeron scored the third one, followed by finally allowing yourself to believe it was going to happen when Marchand iced it.

Thomas gloving the puck. The big pile-up. Nathan Horton appearing out of nowhere to bro-hug Milan Lucic. Zdeno Chara lifting the Cup higher than it had ever been held before.

June 15th turned from a standard pre-summer date into a date we’ll remember forever.
