Cool Bruins Related Story: Pay it Forward

Sorry if this is posted in another thread, I thought it was worth a thread.

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/sport...ticle11885537/

Four employees of a Mississauga restaurant that opened its doors to the Boston Bruins following their Sunday night playoff loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs received the tip of their lifetime.

After agreeing to stay open late to accommodate the hungry National Hockey League club the Bruins arranged to give four tickets to staff members for Monday night’s Game 7 showdown against the Leafs in Boston at TD Garden.

Oh my God it’s unreal,” Lauren Grenier, 28, said earlier today during a telephone conversation from the car she and three colleagues were travelling in, heading toward Boston. “I still can’t believe it.

“And the fact that most of us in the restaurant were Leafs fans, and they still gave us the tickets, is even more amazing.”

About 9-10 hours accounting for traffic, etc.

That was a really nice way to say thank you.

I would drive 10 hours if somebody gave me free tickets to a game-especially a game 7 playoff game.

From Mississauga it's about an 8 hour drive depending on Traffic and the Boarder

I'd say that restaurant took in a nice chunk of change by staying open later than planned for almost 50 Bruins and staff. I'm sure the Bs made it worth their while. Pretty cool story all the way around. Wouldn't Taco Bell have been easier though? jk
