IAmRight: H31N0US: Can someone please post a link when it is ok for me to start hating all things Boston again.

Thanks!

Completely ignored subplot:

Because the game between the Pacers and Celtics was canceled, rather than rescheduled, the Pacers clinched the 3 seed, which means that the Nets have to play Chicago in the first round, and if they make it through that, they have to play Miami in the second round.

If the Pacers had lost that game, then the Nets would have tied them, and by virtue of their 3-0 record against the Pacers during the season, they'd have the 3 seed, which means the Hawks in the first round and they miss the Heat until the ECF assuming both teams make it that far.

Not that it's a guarantee the Celtics beat the Pacers, but for the NBA to completely eliminate the possibility for the Nets is pretty f*cked up.



There is a basketball thread a few up, move your crap there.

You are incorrect sir.  The game was cancelled because it didn't matter and wouldn't impact standings.  Read a little.

Muta: jaylectricity: Actually, I just heard the replay and the announcer said, "Sing loudly along with Rene Rancourt" so it was to be expected.

They do this all the time in Canada without prompting from the announcer.  It is pretty cool.  I guess Canadians love their country more that the folks in the US.   The cheering they do in Chicago during the national anthem should be an embarrassment to any civilized society but we are talking about Chicago here.


Well, the canadians do have a better anthem. Alot more fun to sing.

Ah right, for some reason a team with a better record can have home-court over a team leading a division, but tying records, for some reasons the division winning matters. 

/still more interesting than people singing the national anthem
//but yeah, Canadian national anthem is way better for singing and for listening

I believe he was using a colloquialism that's not strictly accurate but generally understood by most to mean "fairly frequently - not a rare occurrence when it happens, multiple times per year", and he was correct.

Doc Daneeka: Nice gesture for both teams to come out together to Center Ice at the end of the game to salute the fans.

Nice show of unity and way to say that it's just a game.


This is how we win.  We protect our rights, protect our freedoms, and protect each other, and live our lives to the best of our abilities.  Even if that means supporting the Bruins.
 
2013-04-18 11:22:53 AM
I didn't see most of the Bruins game (watching Pens-Habs), but I did see the anthem and the salute at the beginning.  Very classy.

On the opposite end of the spectrum concerning class, I laughed watching the Subban-Morrow fight.  Subban couldn't even land a punch after throwing his stick in Morrow's face then swinging before Morrow had dropped his gloves- so then Subban turtles and gets Morrow in a headlock to keep from getting hit.  Then he sits smiling like an idiot in the penalty box like he did something good.  THEN he gets himself thrown out of the game so that he doesn't have to face Morrow again.  He's got talent, but god, does he not have the decision-making ability to go with it.

Did you see Morrow's reaction in the penalty box?  He was yelling at Subban and giving instructions on how to take off his helmet before a fight.  It was hilarious.

OtherLittleGuy: Jim from Saint Paul: MugzyBrown: Maybe I'm cynical, but having lived through 9/11, Katrina, London, Madrid, Bali, etc, etc etc, I don't get the "national tragedy" feeling here.

Because your obviously becoming too desensitized to death by terrorist (foreign or domestic)?

Because kids were farking killed and lost limbs and if it makes people feel better to sing the national anthem of their country then why the fark not? What ELSE are they supposed to do?

Because America, Fark yeah?

The sobering thought is, in some parts of the world, it would be called "Tuesday".


And in those parts of the world, people behead other people without due process, people blow up other people because they think that the word of a 1600 year old dead guy's cousin can be considered as law, people are treated as property, children are seen as laborers and/or sex toys, and the only fark they give about the western world is that the west sends them money.

Those parts of the world sucked long before America was even a nation.

The entire point of the United States was to have a place where you can disagree with someone without being shot, jailed, or persecuted, and where someone else's beliefs are theirs alone. We're not there yet, but we're a hell of a lot further along than most places.

So if people want to celebrate it, let them celebrate it, because it's a reminder of what we strive to be, not a condemnation of others because of who we were.

Yeah, I loved it.  He was also saying "5 minutes, then we get out and it's you and me".  He was PISSED.  Of course, I don't blame him- Subban didn't take his visor off.  Of course, Morrow did that for him, lol.

soopey: Watching last nights game reinforced my opinion that Patrick Kaleta is an absolute shiatbag.


No, Kaleta hits skaters. You're thinking of Milan Lucic who runs goalies.

Because he hit Jagr with a totally clean hit?

Didn't realize that washed-up superstars were off-limits for hits.

That's good an all...but the Vancouver Canuck fans sing like that every game. Just sayin'

I used to think that too..."how obnoxious that these fans are just being loud and annoying through the anthem", but I visited Chicago last spring and caught a Chicago/Vancouver game (fark Vancouver!) and the anthem cheering was pretty exciting tbh.

Watching the Chicago game on Monday night, with the moment of silence, recognition of the military veterans, and the usual cheering made me a little teary-eyed. I'm not rah-rah America, but it was poignant for me.

Glad you got to experience it in person, it's a great tradition- fark the haters. And Vancouver.

On a side note, has anyone noticed anything unusual in the Western standings today? It probably won't last, screencapping it JIC.

Dr_luckyz: Gonz: The crowd for a hockey game in Boston is... monochromatic.

Y'all got a lotta white folks up there.

//Just sayin'.

Are you also surprised by this at nascar events?


Huge difference there.

We like Black people here. There's just not alot of them, although that's changing. Lots of immigrants from Ethiopia, Sudan, Kenya, etc.

We are starting to see this reflected in our youth hockey now too. My adopted nephew is black.

Unfortunately, hockey is getting even more expensive, which is beyond silly.  The expense of the sport will keep successful Native hockey players a rarity compared to the whites.

I live in a small city, (13, 000) that has the most natives per capita in all of Canada, and close to the highest level of child poverty in Canada.

What an absolute hellhole. Rampant alcohol and drug abuse, as well as drug dealing and manufacturing.

Really wishing a Waco sized explosion would hit this town, there is nothing of value here, including myself.

I can't wait to leave and never come back

English football fans have always been my heroes.

Pvt Joker: I thought the bombs bursted on the ground.


well, back then, the fuses were not 100% consistent, and had to be cut by hand with the gunner estimating the time of flight. an experienced gunner would get close but not always 'on' in the first few shots.

and then they discovered that having the bombs burst just overhead was way deadlier than having them blow up at ground level...

fatalvenom: Doc Daneeka:

Yeah, that was cool. Even with the loss, at least it was a good game. Miller stood on his head, and Kuhdobin(sp) made some good saves; especially that glover he threw.

Though I'm seriously doubtful of the Bruins getting very far in the playoffs at this point.


Theri first round opponent(at the moment) is Toronto, might wanna rethink that.

Really, the "Hero" tag because a bunch of people sang along with the national anthem at a sporting event, which is what half the fans do at every other sporting event anyway?

fatalvenom: I'm really hoping this Soderberg kid can fit into the system and provide a scoring spark. If he's as good as I keep hearing Chiarelli and Neely say he is, maybe he can get them over the top.


I think he might be just what they need. Jagr was feeding some sick passes in that game and putting the moves on the D guys. People can say he is old or washed up, but that's crap. The guy's got game, still. With him playing the feed role like Savard used to, Soderberg could be the guy who can do something with those passes instead of look surprised.
