As a longtime Diehard fan of the Bruins(also the Pens but what im talking about relates more to the B's) and all the other Boston/New England teams I really hope for you guys that there isn't something majorly bad for you guys because and I can atest it will hurt you guys more than some of the players on the team. Alot of these players are there for the money only and its just a job they go in do their work and leave, but for us the sports fans its a passion its a love its something we believe in and something we almost live for. If these athletes have a bad experience in a city they leave and go somewhere else problem solved hands washed but we the fans are left to deal with the longterm embarressment and pain that our "Flag" has endured we are the ones that cringe when some news reporter makes a pun at our teams expense, we are the ones who take the abuse on message boards like these for rooting for who we root for. But we are also there through thick and thin and no matter what nothing can shake us in our devotion.
So to the Habs fans as a Bruins fan and your most hated rival, tonight I put all that aside and I feel for each and everyone of you keep your heads high keep on believing in your "Flag" don't let the jackasses with their ever so smart ass remarks bring you down and eventually they will go away.
I really hope this is not as big as it sounds because no fan should have to be put through the ringer by any overpaid athletes. Hang in there guys Keep on believing!
I have no idea what is about to unfold for the Habs franchise and fanbase but I wanted to send some support from a Canucks fan. Remembering the whole Bertuzzi incident and how crappy it was - I hope it's not bad like that. Hopefully it's something minor and easily forgotten. Either way - I hope the Habs go on to make it to the playoffs and that it doesn't tarnish the franchise too much.
I do not need maternal-like support. thank you. still nice that you took the time
