Do you want some cheese w/that w(h)ine?

I am excited that the Boston Bruins did/are doing so well in the playoffs so far. I can kinda sorta do without the fair weathered fans though. Its getting old really quick and we are not even that deep in the playoff run.

People want to have "small talk" with me about the team, the game(s) etc and it bugs me for some reason. I've always sorta wanted people to care, but now I am not so sure!

Funny how that works.

90 degrees today..60 tomorrow...30 degrees is a lot..but I'd rather 90->60 vs. 30->0!

I've had similar experiences and kind of feel the same... and if they continue their run, I'm sure they'll be increasing.

But think of it as an opportunity to 'bring them around' on the Greatest Sport. It's a tough sell, for sure, but it's worth a shot.

What bothers me more than the shiny-new, instant fan-base is the total '180' that all the sports reporters and writers pulled.. and it began about half-way through the season.

I never understood the shtick used by these guys on knocking the NHL (ie. all the "oh, i didn't realize hockey came back from the lock-out" type remarks). If you used the NHL as a whipping boy to amuse all your mouth-breathing, sycophantic Red Sox readers to garner 'coolness' - you've no right to jump in on the coverage now that the Bruins are doing well... total hypocrisy.
