(City of Boston)   Not content with simply owning them in the Stanley Cup Final, Chicago further trolls Boston by making the mayor pay up on his bet by putting up the Black Hawks celebration video on the city's homepage   (cityofboston.gov) divider line 88

Still no apology forthcoming from the Mooninite freak-out of 2007, but it will do.

Yeah you don't back out of a bet just because you lost.
 
2013-10-02 02:56:51 PM
I was expecting some serious butt-hurt in the youtube comments, but then again, it's not the Red Wings.
 
2013-10-02 02:58:22 PM
If the hawks can't repeat, I'd like to see Boston take it.
 
2013-10-02 03:06:06 PM
I feel like this is making bets on behalf of other people. This is the people of Boston's website, not Menino's. He had no right. On the other hand, I don't really care.

Ehh, it's kinda a stupid bet anyway. A real bet would be to make Chicago stop calling that casseroll they love a pizza vs make the Red Sox retire Roger Clemens's number

I wouldn't say the Bruins got "owned" Subby.

Taking the series to six games isn't getting owned, the Penguins got owned.
 
2013-10-02 03:22:30 PM
Menino is a good reason why people disrespect Boston, and by proxy the people of Boston.  If you constantly re-elect a mayor that cannot speak intelligibly it reflects poorly on the town and its residents.

//Hate Menino, but props to him for actually honoring a bet.
 
2013-10-02 03:24:42 PM
Well, nobody expected Rahm to pass up an opportunity to rub someone's nose in a loss, did they?
 
2013-10-02 03:24:53 PM
I'm OK with this.

A bet is a bet and Chicago is a cool city.
 
2013-10-02 03:26:25 PM
It's a more creative bet than something stupid like some chowdah or lobstah.

And the Hawks won fair and square.  Good for them.

Two goals in 17 seconds in the final 1:16 of the game to come from behind and win the Cup...that's at least a "you got told" moment.
 
2013-10-02 03:30:50 PM
I liked reading the letters the mayors wrote detailing their bets:

To Rahm: Thank you for the note. It's no surprise that such a verbose letter came from the Windy City. ... Please use ground transport as I would like to avoid any weather delays.

By the way, I'm not subby. I respect the B's style of play too much for that.

Plus subby spelled Chicago's team name as "Black Hawks" - What is this, pre 1986?

That's a gut punch.  1:30 left in the game and you know you're going to a game seven and you have the momentum going in.  Okay, the game is tied, but we're still in control.  Oh fark.

//Been on both sides of that in rec hockey.  To say a loss like that is disheartening is an understatement.

Who outside of Boston or Massachusetts knows who the Mayor of Boston is? And even if they do, have heard him speak? Menino no more should be a reason why people 'disrespect' Bostonians than Ariel Castro should be a reason to look down on anyone from Ohio.

I've never heard Menino speak, so I'm going to go to Youtube and see if there are any examples.  He can't be as bad as Mayor Daley.  I don't mean Richie, I'm talking about the old man, Mare Daley.  He would be fumbling for words in a normal speech, and if he got pissed off, he'd get all red in the face and begin to sputter all kinds of nonsense.  Menino would really have to be a piece of work to beat out Old Man Daley.

Menino often makes radio shows with his malapropisms, mumbling, and pretty much murdering of the English language.  Also as the mayor of one of the large cities in the US, he often shows up on the national news.  Think of how DC looked bad because of Marion Berry or Detroit with Kwame.

Using Ariel Castro as an comparison example is stupid.  The people of Cleveland (who have no problem looking bad on their own) did not elect Castro to be a bus driver, whereas Menino has been elected over and over again to represent the people of Boston.

OK, I've been to Youtube and listened to Menino speak.  Wow!!  I mean WOW!!  Does that take me back in time.  It's like listening to Old Man Daley again, but, with a Boston accent.  Too bad Old Man Daley isn't still alive, he and Menino could have a contest, like a Battle of Gibberish.  They would have to have the closed caption running, just you would the faintest idea of what they were struggling to say.

Here's a F*ck You to subby.  "Owned"?  F*ck You.  (Am inclined to say something about your mother, and I guess I did, but...picture it like Egon to Pecker.)

Here's a tip of the cap to the 'Hawks.  Hurt like hell, but great series.  Well earned.

Very close to a PPG by the Wings... more than once.
 
2013-10-02 09:21:34 PM
Oh, damn, looked like a Wings goal there, but they're calling goaltender interference. BS.
 
2013-10-02 09:23:05 PM
And now a makeup call. The player just sat down there, no interference whatsoever.

You can tell this Sabres team hasn't played very long together. They have played the puck into areas where there are no white shirts around at least 3 or 4 times.

I'm not saying Roy was wrong. The Ducks coach was being an asshole. Roy had a right to be royally pissed. But he's got to be able to control it and pick his battles. The League won't tolerate that stuff for too long. Tonight was fine, though he'll probably get a phone call Thursday telling him to be careful. He just can't let his attitude on the ice be his attitude behind the bench.
 
2013-10-03 02:32:53 AM
I think Roy was losing his shiat even more because Perry was spraying him with a water bottle. Douche move there.
 
2013-10-03 02:55:00 AM
Lovejoy was after Mackinnon the whole game and with 30 seconds left tried to knee him but missed.  This was just before Getzlaf and Downie fought.

Roy was justified. He'd be justified if he knocked the plexi down and hit Boudreau in the head with it.
If the NHL wants this shiat to stop they would take out the instigator rule.

Go to Youtube, they have Menino highlight vids. You'll see what your family is talking about.  He's really pretty funny.  He and Old Man Daley, will show that you don't have to be a great orator to be mayor of a big city, just have a great organization.
