Every so often I hear people whining about some of the different personalities on our team and how they play. Players and coaches from other teams included. People like Mark Recchi (A guy who's been inducted in BC Hall of fame, for shame?) Marchand, that meat head Shawn Thornton and Claude Julien to name a few. The hypocrites who go and bitch to the media always end up looking like the fools. There are others from other teams too, it's not exclusively Bruins. (it's just my hatred for them is being refueled right now because of some youtube videos I've come across.)
On the other hand I'm just proud that our guys aren't a bunch of babies and they keep their problems on the ice. I've never heard them complain to the media. We're much more professional and respectable for this and I hope we always keep this up! Other teams' players remind me of my teams I played for in pee wee, my team mates used to cry about the chippiness of other teams. I was embarrassed by it. By bantam I think the boys grew up. Apparently there are some NHLers who still haven't grown up and still don't understand the kind of sport this is and especially what it becomes come playoff time when it's totally and understandably necessary to do almost anything to win... because there's a bigger picture here, especially in Vancouver.
I'm so sick of the hate we get. I go on youtube to watch some videos from 2010-2011 and find myself reading comments from asshole fans about our team. I can't believe how cruel people can be. I never in my life would ever have dreamed of bashing a defeated team. I compare the feeling of losing to the feeling of death and loss and 2011 was among the hardest if not the hardest pill I've had to swallow. It hits hard and it still stings and for people to rub that in your face is about as low as you can get. Anyways like I said, BC Hall of Fame inductee; Mark Recchi, of all people, was a prime example of what I'm talking about: http://nesn.com/2011...layed-against/. I know that is old news that article but it's recently been brought to my attention that he's in the BC hall of fame and if that's not call for the prick to be deducted from our hall of fame, I don't know what is?
