Good post Rev. When I think of this ownership group the word that comes to my mind is excellence. They do everything just a little bit better than they probably have to. World class ownership, and I for one am incredibly grateful.Reverend said:
I think the ownership/management group really went out of their way to dot the "i"s and cross the "t"s on this one. But despite some bumps along the way, I've felt that way for a long time--there is an awesome column out there somewhere about how when they came on board, they buried and put to rest the "true curse" of the Red Sox by finally making in-roads with Boston's black community through funding youth baseball and such.
They just seem to get that sharing this as much as possible embiggens the moment. Sure, it's money out of their pocket, but spending it on a feel good vibe that encompasses a whole city and beyond is some pretty solid work.
Why would you Photoshop out the one guy who's done a lot more for Boston than those guys?Section30 said:Thanks, since my skills are not good enough to Photoshop out Menino I have the Lowell-Varitek-Martinez pic up. Co-workers are already admiring it.
Never mind the fact that there are two Stanley Cups. Three if you count the retired original.terrisus said:
Well, unlike the other championship trophies, where a new one is awarded every year, there is only one Stanley Cup, which changes hands every year depending on who won it that year.
Love the bolded, saying this kind of thing happens a lot. Bruins next would be great.Lose Remerswaal said:They just about always have the tent there to shield the special guests from prying eyes. Keeps the secret longer.
how cool is it that we can say "they just about always..." meaning they do this thing more than once every 100 years?Lose Remerswaal said:They just about always have the tent there to shield the special guests from prying eyes. Keeps the secret longer.
