Putting The Iron In The Boston Bruins

Don’t laugh, but I tend to watch playoff games in my kitchen while doing household chores. It started back in 2004, Game 7 of the ALCS between the Yankees and the Sox. As a Made Yankee Fan in Boston, I was understandably anxious, so I decided to settle my nerves by cleaning the refrigerator while I watched the game.

Well, we all know how that turned out.

Three years later – Game 7 of the 2007 ALCS (Red Sox v. Cleveland Indians) – I also cleaned my refrigerator to see if I was somehow responsible for 2004’s historic Red Sox victory/Wagnerian Yankee collapse.

I was.

Flash forward to this past Tuesday and Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Boston Bruins and Vancouver Canucks.

With the Bruins down two games to none, I decided to settle my nerves by ironing while I watched the crucial contest (hey, summer is linen season). And wouldn’t you know it, the Bruins scored four goals in the second period on their way to a cruise-control 8-1 Caknocking of the Canucks.

So what did I do during the second period of Game 4? That’s right – I ironed. And the Bruins potted two second-period goals on their way to a 4-0 dismantling of the Cannots.

Conclusions:

1) If the Sox ever get to another ALCS Game 7, the front office will have to pay me to clean my refrigerator.

2) I’ll definitely be at the ironing board Friday night.
