Waiting for Tonight…

1 Jun

I’m like a kid on Christmas morning!

Is this really happening?  Is the team that I’ve rooted for and cheered for all season really in the Stanley Cup Finals?

Hell ya, they are!

Bruins and Canucks will face off at 8pm EST in Game 1 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals.  I’m supposed to have grad class until 8pm but I’m totally planning on having to “go to the bathroom” and racing home (as much as one can race on public transportation) to watch the game.  I was invited to a meetup of Canadian ex-pats in Boston to watch the game, but they’ll all be cheering for the Canucks and I don’t know if I can handle that…

There has been a lot of media coverage of the SCF here in Boston (natch) and with that comes some awesome photos and screen caps of our most favorite Bruins players.  I only felt is was far to share them with our loyal readers because regardless of your personal hockey affiliation,  you understand the magnitude of the Stanley Cup Finals and what it means to the Canucks and Bruins hockey fans everywhere.

Plus their beards and faces are awesome.  See evidence below.

You’re welcome.


Hi-fives for everyone!

Click, Click, Click...BOOM!

"I once caught a Canuck aboot this...big..."

Learning about the elusive creature known as the...Power Play Goal.

Still pondering just how in the world he made that save on Steve Downie...

Krecji looking all kinds of Euro


I already got my name on the Stanley Cup...what about you?

Teen Wolf like shiny cup.

Notice who's on the wall behind him. *good omen*

"I am Darth Quaider. You will fear me...and my mullet"

Czech me out, ladies.

Why hello there, Boych. Don't you look foxy. P.S. Your profile is *swoon*

The Professor has tenure with the Bruins. 7 years. He's only 25.

    That is a serious beard, Professor Bergy.

      I want him and Krejci to keep theirs. I love me a bit of scruff on the Professor 😀

    Chuck, I’m Canadian and I only have this to say: BRUINS ALL THE WAY. (Does that sort of rhyme?)

    I’m on a flight tonight and knowing the airline, they’ll probably be rooting for the Canucks if (OK fine, WHEN) they score. I’ll be hooting and hollering every time the B’s score!

    It’s desperation time now – I’ve been rooting for the Canucks to lose all playoffs, and it’s the final countdown – cue the music. Boston folks might be wanting the B’s to win out of love, while I just want them to win to take down those sissies. Let the games begin!

      Owing to the 8 hour time difference I will be praying for them at bedtime & wearing bruins related wear to bed then panicking before checking my NHL app in the morning.

      I’d watch the games live, but I have work early so…

    Serious beard for a serious hockey player.

    Teen wolf has stepped into the awkward facial hair shoes previously occupied by Toews

    • Chuck June 1, 2011 at 2:10 pm #

      Teen Wolf also has some great derp faces. Not as awesome as Toews’ but they’re still pretty good.

    I am loving me some Redneck Lumberjack look. Lots of it. Happy Cassy!

    You found Canadians cheering for Vancouver? Wow. The only ones I know of are either from Vancouver or complete morons…

      Jimmy, I love you.
