Thanks much for the summary!

I expected at least one guy to put up a fair fight.

It just makes me feel better about professional sports, when even a guy like Scal (no offense Scal, you're just no Kobe) dominates much younger guys who we think are quick/great shooters/defenders etc. I kinda get the feeling that even the 300 pound football players in the trenches would crush me in a foot race.

They probabley could. ITs nothing against you. You have to think of as professional athletes as the best of the best of the best. I mean its such a small percentage that even practice squad players could beat us all badly in any sport really. I had a roommate of mine say he could get 15 pts in an nba game. We had an argument for about week over it. It looks easy on tv.. if it actually was easy we would be playing. I think wilfork if he got going would easily beat me in a foot race haha.

good breakdown, and just one more thing.....

He was asked (baited) to comment on the Mcquaid/Robins dustup and he refused to take the bait. "You have to treat this game like you would treat any other game...Robins is a player that goes hard all the time and doesn't take shortcuts....gotta respect that...etc.". Hockey players play hockey, and part of playing hockey is the unique physical dimension to the sport. Good on ya Z!

Good response. Chara has come such a long way with the media, and has just about perfected the art of saying the right thing and giving the obvious cliche answer...without it coming across as canned.

Not sure if it will let you stream in Canada, but there's a listen live button on the site.

I can get weei, but whats the point, zero bruins talk and I am not a red sox fan either

I prefer to listen to TSN Toronto over Weei because they talk hockey, if it is mostly Leaf talk.

I've only had eei on today.
Mostly Pats, some Francona book, a bit of C's on midday.
No B's from what I heard.

Haven't listened to WEEI, but what a poster recently said doesn't surprise me.

Watching Felger & Mazz on Comcast now. Felger mentioned the Bruins once, and is still taking calls from ticked off Pats fans. Before the commercial break he kinda got called out by a caller. Listened to T&R earlier today and they had Haggs on to talk about the first 2 games and what lies ahead. Didn't listen to any of Gresh & Zo. I would expect that by Friday, or Monday next week, 98.5 will be in full Bruins mode with the occasional segment where Felger rips the Celtics if they continue to struggle. WEEI? They'll probably be wall-to-wall Celtics. I don't listen to Planet Mikey, but a buddy of mine who does says that both he and John Ryder haven't mentioned the word "Bruins" in a sentence since last April during the night shift.

Awesome! Did anyone catch T&R replaying Wiggy's segment on the Phantom Gourmet? Pretty funny. http://boston.cbslocal.com/2013/01/2...rm-sandwiches/
