So . . . not a bad parade, huh? Just wish Mayor Menino had attempted "Zdeno."
Wouldn't call these three stars, exactly, but here are a couple of quick links to my Bruins stuff that was elsewhere on the site this week, including today's story on the celebration and the Bruins players' reciprocation of the fans' admiration.
Also, here's a brief story on Marc Savard joining his teammates in the rolling rally, and if you missed it, Friday's media column on Dave Goucher getting his chance to call a championship moment, just as Gil, Castig, and Grande have in recent seasons. Got a nice e-mail from Gil today saying how much he enjoyed Goucher's call.
TATB will be back to its regularly scheduled programming this week. (In other words: it's baseball season. It is mid-June, you know. Where did May go?) As for the Bruins: I'll always appreciate the chance to skate a lane and help cover this team the past few weeks. The three cross-continent trips and 12 plane rides in 15 days were exhausting
and looting and rioting is way more tiring than I thought.
But watching this genuine, admirable group of players win and seeing the beloved, stoic Cam Neely tearing up on the ice after Game 7 was worth every dull moment stuck in a terminal choking down another $4.29 bag of peanuts from Hudson News. Was it ever.
