A Hero Honored

Great game last night! Even their best game couldn’t stop us.

Anyway, I was listening to WAAF’s Hillman Morning Show today and they spoke to MBTA Officer Dick Donahue who was the officer shot during the Watertown Shootout with the terrorists responsible for the Boston Marathon Bombings. Popular Host Greg Hill asked Officer Donahue to tell a story about when Hill and Rob Gronkowski went to visit him in the hospital. Apparently, Gronk said something to the nature of (and I’m paraphrasing) “you know what would help you: if we got you some strippers that dressed up as nurses to bruins-thomas-and-raskcould come in here.” According to Greg Hill, Donahue’s wife then walked in and was not too pleased. But this is just classic Gronk and we can add one more reason to the list of reasons why we love the guy.

For those of you who missed it, Office Donahue was the hero that was brought out in a wheel chair to wave the flag before the start of the Bruins game last night. Hill said that Donahue should take full credit for the win, and the Officer laughed it off. He was a very modest hero and defines Boston Strong. Have a good day everybody!

Wake Up Kessel, It’s Boston

In case you missed it Wednesday morning, Brad Marchand got an unexpected prank wakeup call from a Toronto morning show. At about 7am on gameday, the radio station sent several pizzas to his hotel, and after explaining that it was a pregame ritual of his, had the front desk call Mr. Marchand’s room and wake him up. Not going to lie, pretty funny stuff. As a fan, that’s the kind of witty prank I can handle. In fact I enjoy it. operation retaliation waafCompletely different than the Toronto Stronger D-Bag from Monday’s game. Anyways, no harm no foul there. But Toronto, I’ll tell you this. You are extremely naïve if you didn’t think us Bostonians would retaliate. I mean not only were you destined to come back to our city the next day, but you have an obvious target for us to go after. Cue…Mr. Phil Kessel.

With little doubt they’d let it slide, WAAF’s Hillman Morning Show took the reins on Operation Retaliation, sending Spaz out to Toronto’s hotel this morning, fully equipped with a megaphone, bright yellow morph suit, and the support of relentless Bruin’s fans. I can only imagine the scene taking place as he yelled and taunted Kessel over the megaphone, with an army of vehicles beeping violently in the background. Absolute radio gold. Unfortunately, it only lasted about 10 minutes before our boys in blue showed up to send the annoying yellow man packing. Either way, WAAF should be posting it as a podcast later this morning so make sure you listen for yourself. Just more fuel for the fire, I love it. Great work guys. Now let’s go Bruins! Puck drops at 7:10 tonight. Happy Friday indeed!
