Section 307 in N.Y.C.

by Staff Writer / Boston Bruins

The shoveling is done…

And for those of you who are not in New England, yesterday we got a really "fun" late winter storm called a Nor’easter, and that dumped quite a bit of snow on Massachusetts.

So, using the Bish Shovels, the General and I cleared out the entrance to the Bish Cave and I am sitting down enjoying the New England Hockey Journal radio show.

Unfortunately, the dreaded Saturday trip to the supermarket is coming -- and quickly.


By the way, my mole in New York, the Big Kahuna, called to say that he had spotted a good representation of the TD Banknorth Garden’s section 307, including Paula, one of our favorite Bruins junkies -- she of the bright yellow Bruins jersey with accoutrements -- in NYC.

So here is a concerned shoutout to those guys and gals who braved bad weather and oppressive sentiment (from Rangers fans) to obtain tickets to Madison Square Garden in order to root on Our Boys in the "City That Never Sleeps."

Be safe on this festive St. Patrick’s Day, folks!

As a special treat, here is my best Daddy Warbucks (or BishBucks, perhaps) impression, doing the opening lines to N.Y.C. from the musical "Annie" and dedicated to the Black & Gold True Believers in MSG, tonight:

What is it about you
You’re big
You’re loud
You’re tough NYC
I go years without you
Then I
Can’t get
Enough of the cab drivers answering back
In the language far from pure
Enough of frankfurters answering back
Brother, you know you’re in NYC
Too busy
Too crazy
Too hot
Too cold
Too late
I’m sold

Well, I am certainly not sold on NYC.

The refrain "Boston you’re my home," was heard at my wedding.

But the song from the Broadway Show fits today’s mood.

Oh. And, just for your information, the Bruins were scheduled to take off this morning and were not scheduled to have a game day skate. So, as nobody will be on the ice, I will not have any lineup updates until closer to the game.
