I won't pretend to know how Bruins fans feel this morning, after a disappointing post-season last year and a nearly disastrous season this year, I won't pretend to know how great it feels to finish off the Sabres in six.
I won't pretend to know how many goals the Bruins scored.
I won't pretend to know who plays goalie for the Bruins.
I won't pretend to know, really anything about the Bruins.
What I do know, is that last night's win was a big win for Bruins fans everywhere who have waited far too long to watch their B's skate to victory in a playoff series.
So, I say, congratulations to the Boston Bruins for what I have heard was a tremendous series. I won't pretend I am excited for round two, but I know a whole lot of people that are.
I won't pretend to know why Josh Beckett is struggling to find his mojo.
I won't pretend to know why the Red Sox seem to have all the fire power they need, but can't find an arm in the bullpen to hold a lead.
I won't pretend to know why Papi continues to struggle...ok well maybe that one's the roids.
I won't pretend to know if the Red Sox will ever snap out of this funk.
What I do know is that they battled back yesterday. Yes, it was against the lowly Blue Jays, but there is fight in them. This is good news for Red Sox nation who have watched this team stumble out of the gates. The good news with this team is they are hitting, so maybe Dice-K's appearance this Saturday will be the shot in the arm the pitching staff needs to get the Boston Red Sox back in the winning frame of mind.
So, I say to the Boston Red Sox, keep plugging away boys, eventually this will all work itself out. I refuse to believe that the second highest payroll in baseball has produced basement dwellers.
I won't pretend to know why he didn't fit in with an organization that usually brings players in and slides them nicely into place without a hint of a problem.
I won't pretend to know why he went from a Humble Pie eating Patriot to a defector in 2009.
I won't pretend to know why Coach Belichick seemed to treat him differently then some of the other guys on the roster.
What I do know is that we do NOT want him heading to Gang Green. The Jets are already stacked as it is and the last thing we need is another guy lined up across from Tom Brady that has a score to settle. We should've traded him by any means necessary AWAY from the New York Jets.
So, I say to the New England Patriots who have had a mediocre at best off season, GOOD LUCK fellas, you're going to need it. When the New York Jets come into town, I am not 100% it's going to be pretty. In fact I am quite sure it's going to be UGLY.
I won't pretend to know how Paul Pierce and the rest of the big three are feeling after letting a series sweep slip through their hands on Sunday against the Miami Heat.
I won't pretend to know if their aging legs are still holding up under the pressure of a long NBA season and the start of the grueling playoffs.
I won't pretend to know if Glen Davis will show up as he did in Game 2 or look like he's stuck in mud like he did in Game 4.
I won't pretend to know if Dwayne Wade can legitimately put up another set of 46 on the Celtics tonight at the Garden.
What I do know is that the Celtics have been must see TV for the last four games and nothing has changed tonight. The Garden will be rocking and the Boston Celtics need to deliver for their fans, but also for their bodies as an extra days rest before they head to the Q (let's be real, they'll be playing the Cavs) is a MUST.
So, I say to you Boston Celtics, get out there and get the job done tonight. We're counting on you to keep this positive Boston vibe going tonight.
