"So Let it Be Written... So Let it Be Done"

The life and times of a real, down to earth, nice guy. A relocated New Englander formerly living somewhere north of Boston, but now soaking up the bright sun of southwestern central Florida (aka The Gulf Coast). Welcome to my blog world.

A long time coming, but well worth the wait!



I almost thought this day would never come. In the world of Boston professional sports, the Bruins and Celtics had become an afterthought, especially with the recent successful championship runs of the Patriots and Red Sox in the last eight years. In fact I had pretty much given up on ever seeing this sight again. Not since the glory days of the original 'big three' of Bird, McHale and Parish along with Danny and DJ have the Celtics been able to win the NBA champiponship. But here it was on opening night, two nights ago, banner #17 being raised to the rafters in the new Garden.

Now the NBA "experts" are talking repeat? Unbelievable.

So the next question is, when will the Bruins get off the schneid and win the Stanley Cup? A feat they last pulled off in 1970, I believe, and haven't even come close since the Finals wipeouts at the skates of Gretzky, Messier and the great Edmonton Oliers teams of 1988 and 1990.
