Stanley is in Boston!

Growing up my family has always been a Bruins family. My dad grew up playing hockey and has loved the Bruins through thick and thin. Since he didn't have any sons my sister and I were the ones to always watch the games with him even when they were pretty awful. Wednesday night I was planning on staying at my sister's house because I was watching the baby yesterday. It just so happens that it was also game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals. It was like old times for my dad since he was able to watch the game with both of his daughters but the best part was that the outcome wasn't like old times. The Bruins had finally done it again and brought the cup back to Boston.

My dad had tears in his eyes as the buzzer sounded, it was official the Bruins had become the 2011 Champions!  My dad celebrated with some special scotch he had received from my cousin for Christmas and my mom ass celebrating because he would finally shave off that awful play-off beard (not quite yet though he is keeping it until after the parade tomorrow).

Then we all celebrated by raising our replica Stanley Cup which my brother-in-law had made a few weeks ago.

It was a late night on Wednesday so I was happy not to work yesterday. Abigail and I went down to the beach for a walk and had a nice relaxing morning.
I couldn't have asked for a better day, the Bruins came home with the cup and I got to spend the day with my niece.

Question: What is your favorite sport to watch?


  1. Haha I love your cup! So happy the Bruins won!

  2. I don't really love watching any sports, but I didn't realize you lived in the Boston area. I'm usually in New Hampshire, but I've relocated to Asheville, NC until December :)


I love hearing your comments so please share!
