I may be from New England with family in Boston and who ran the marathon, so maybe I'm a bit sensitive about it, but isn't three weeks a bit too soon to be making fun of this?

I'm a sports fanatic, but never did hockey. This season my GF has taught me much (Northerner, former Whalers girl). Tonight I was that annoying chick (am actually a guy) asking questions about the rules during a Bud Light commercial. Watching her Bruins win made my evening special.

We debated how so many flagrant b*tch slaps go unnoticed but my NFL terrorizes a legal hit, and which is better for respective leagues. We also discussed the frequency of violence in the NHL versus the severity of it in the NFL.

We drank some local beer, had some food, and insulted each other all night. Did I mention that she's nearly 6 feet tall and a natural red! I had fun. Any woman that can argue sports is a keeper. So what if I was a jock.

At least it wasn't an international soccer game. I hear over there in Europe, people yell out racial slurs at the opposing team players, just to frazzle them a bit.

ok glad I was not the only one asking if a Rabbi convention was also going on in Toronto last night

and this guy is an attention whore, no more or less.  thought he was being witty, but he's just a dick.

My experience with them has been that some of them are annoying, but not typically rude like this.  Pretty similar to most other fanbases - I've yet to meet any team that hasn't had some contingent of fans that don't bother the crap out of me for some reason or another, with the possible exception of Panthers fans.

This dude is a douche.

You know, I've found Torontonians to be some of the nicest people I've ever met (I'm from Massachusetts, so make of that what you will).

I've never had a problem with Leafs' fans when they're in town to take on the Bruins. Gotten drunk with a number of them in Sully's before and after games.

Needless to say, it's been hard getting my hate on for this series... This guy is most definitely an asshole, but I'm not going to hold it against all Toronto fans.

The sign didn't say "Boston Weak" - he's just supporting his team (in a classless way).

Hate to say this, but if Bruins fans are using "Boston Strong" to cheer on their team, then it's fair game.

Nah, I'm gonna disagree. I agree, it's playoff hockey, so a certain amount of excess is allowable. But I think any event where someone died is off limits. Otherwise, any sort of decorum goes out the window. Like the Leaf's fan who got sucker punched at the Garden. That's not cool. I don't care if it's playoffs or not.
 
2013-05-07 09:13:37 AM  
Why is this offensive? He's just re-purposing an already reused "support the cause" slogan. He never insulted anyone with it and Bruins fans have Boston Strong signs up, it's just his response.

There's Aholes everywhere. Last playoff game I went to was against Montreal. Some A-hole Bruins fan beside me was getting overly aggressive with a some Habs fans a few rows down. Others around him told him to sit down and shut the fark up. He didn't, so a few went and got an usher. He was politely escorted away by two ushers and one BPD. The Habs fans thanked us profusely after he was gone.

I agree. I mean, I can remember 10 years ago when Boston Championships were decades removed. And they are good people...I mean, it's Canada. How can you hate Canada, it's like hating Kittens.

//Montreal is NOT part of Canada.
 
2013-05-07 09:17:20 AM  
You can't really co-opt a phrase that has been used for over a decade and pretend it's all about you, then apply it to your sports teams for the next month or more as though they're fighting terrorism by winning playoff games. Then be mad at other fans for using any variation on that.

This isn't a sport slogan. It the slogan for the recovery efforts from the bombing, which was only three weeks ago... It's still very raw and not something to joke about yet, because not only will you be tapping a set of emotions that are still very powerful because people are still coping with it, but it's Boston, which isn't known for level headed responses.

Best to leave that the fark alone. Hell, they're still fighting over where to bury Speedbump.

Heh... Few seasons back, the wife and I were at a Bruins-Toronto game and a bunch of drunken assholes from both fan bases were just screaming obscenities at each other... with kids and families all around them. I mean real nasty shiat.

A big barrel-chested Boston cop slowly plodded his way up to the section and made an announcement in a booming voice, "If I have to walk all the way up here again, every single one of you morons is going to be spending the night in jail. Understand?"

Not a peep out of them for the rest of the game. Loved it.

Same here...

I'm not offended by it per se, but it's fairly insensitive and a dick move considering it's still a raw nerve for most Bostonians right now. As far as "Boston Strong" being used by Bruins fans, the Bruins are very much involved with the Boston community... Many of the players live within blocks of the Garden and are regularly seen patronizing local business and working with local charities. Players like Thornton and Ference have pretty much become honorary Bostonians in their communities in Charlestown and the North End.

Using the phrase "Boston Strong" isn't so much saying we're "defeating terrorism by winning playoff games" as it's showing solidarity with the people affected by the attacks.

Again, this kind of stuff is to be expected in sports, I guess, but I'm willing to bet Mr. "Toronto Stronger" would be less than pleased if Boston fans were using this tragedy to mock the Toronto fan base.
 
2013-05-07 09:40:41 AM  
Sorry you need a bumper sticker catchphrase to capitalize a tragedy.

Anything that's "(fill in the blank) Strong" is a joke. It relates back to a drug using, egotistical, lying sack of dog shiat who should be strung up by his one nut.

And christ, it's 2013, shouldn't you use a hashtag or some shiat when using this phrase to make it even more with the times?

Listen, I get it. Boston sports fans can be a bunch of assholes. I've been to games, hell, in my younger days, I was one of those assholes at times.  But it was three weeks ago, give us a break if we are sensitive about it.
