The Boston Bruins have canceled a game because of the overnight blizzard in Boston. The Bruins estimated that two-thirds of the seats at the arena would be empty because the rapid transit was not running.
Fans are irate. They would be there because most of them drive vehicles with a plow attached.
Bruins fans are a hardy breed. Some would show up at the TD Garden in mukluks and driving a dog sled.
The Tampa Bay Lightning watched the thunder lightning last night in Boston. Word has it that the Bruins feared having lightning strike three times in the same place-- and decided to reschedule.
The blue collar/lunch pail crowd that supports fights at the drop of a glove now must stay home and drink alone.
The Bruins management figured that, after canceling half the season, one more game would hardly be noticed. How wrong they are!
Tim Thomas fans had planned a protest at the game to decry the trading of the Tea Bag darling to Long Island.
Now that embarrassment is avoided.
Addicted hockey fans already have suffered having no hockey when the ice melted because it was too warm outdoors. Now that the cold is here, they are prepared to watch the ice melt in their glasses while goalie Tuukka Rask shakes, not stirs, the opposition.
Now the Bruins must pack their bags and shuffle off to Buffalo to play a game on Sunway night. In Buffalo the Boston blizzard is considered lake-effect snow.
