    Celebrity Bruins Fans?

    In keeping with my Hockey Songs post... Gord Downey (lead singer of the Tragically Hip) is a big Bruins fan.  I also just finished watching season four of Rescue Me and I know Dennis Leary is a huge Bruins fan.  Is Matt Damon a fan? What about Ben Affleck?  Anyway its just a fun post to lighten things up....just curious which celebrities wear the Black and Gold!!

    If Ben Affleck is, it's probably because he just followed Matt Damon by accident.  Don't forget the Dropkick Murphy's & Adam Sandler.

    I say it every time I watch the Office,  Steve Carell is a Big Bruins fan, they interviewed him in LA when the Bruins played them in 07, and the color commentator made sure to underscore that Carell is a Bruins fan.  And you can't forget Michael J Fox, I watch him score a goal in a charity game wearing a Bruins jersey in Buffalo.

    Oh and Gord Downey has to be a Bruins fan, his godfather is Harry Sinden.

    You know, that's what hockey needs in the USA to get some attention.  Us real hockey fans don't care, but they need to have celebrities linked to the game for promotion.

    Could be a bad thing too.  The US sports fanbase seems to only care about sports that were made for TV and commercials.  It's pretty sad.  (And yes, I'm from the USA)  And oh my frigin' god, now we have soccer/football trying to become mainstream.  3rd world, here we come.

    Anything boring, so that the game doesn't interfere with their phone conversations.

    Kurt Russell would be perfect for that celebrity role the guy loves hockey (Miracle on Ice!). Met him in N. Andover one year when he came to watch his son play a game @ Merrimack. Yah Skaswatch I forgot Rob Zombie was from Haverhill but i've never seen him with a Bruins jersey on though. That would be cool seeing him at a Bs game! Have him sing the "Oh Canada" one night fun stuff!

    Still sweatin to the oldies Kennedy97 ? If Simmons really is a fan that's funny!

    I do agree that the Marketing of certain sports for the mainstream U.S. fanbase is fantastic, particularly the NFL and NBA and Yes I agree they are boring to watch. Too many commercials/timeouts.

    BUT...3rd world, here we come? Have you been to Europe in the last 10 years? Have you been outside the US since our valuable dollar has turned into toilet paper? So, your correct 3rd world here we come. But, for different reasons than watching soccer.

    What makes hockey the best is because they players are like a lot of us, we will just never outsize the NFL/NBA fanbase, there are too many people in this country that spent their teenage years playing those sports.

    By the way, go to an international soccer game once in your life outside of the US and I am guaranteeing you will have a good time. It will make a Patriots game seem like church.

    Ignorance is no excuse.

    Apparently, Lil' Wayne & Micheal Chiklis are B's fans too.

    I spent two months in Costa Rica, a little villiage on the west coast with no pavement and sometimes no electricity.  Every morning before dawn I'd watch all of the high-school age kids play football out in the mud from my tree house/hostel (howler monkeys are great alarm clocks).  They had passion that made the world cup look like a paper cup.  I was in awe, and their skills were amazing, most with no shoes (they only had thier school shoes and uniforms, so they'd typically play barefoot and in their underwear, then jump in a river and put their school clothes back on).

    I recently went to some of the exhibition games here in Seattle.  FC Barcelona.  Boooooooorrrrrrrinnnnnnng.  The crowd is more entertaining than anything that could ever happen on the pitch.  Here, or in Europe.  Like baseball, without the anticipation.

    Richard Simmons was born in the French Quarter, New Orleans and now resides in Beverly Hills so I would have to say he would either be a Habs fan (French connection) or a Kings fan. I really doubt he's a hockey fan at all.

    Spider Stacey, vocalist and whistle player for my personal favorite, The Pogues, has a picture of him wearing a Lucic Crew T-shirt on his myspace page. I believe when they came to town in March Ken Casey from the Dropkick Murphy's introduced him to The Bruins.

    Lil Wayne mentioned in his sports blog on ESPN that he is a Bruins fan. John Cena was in an interview wearing a Bruins hat and he is from West Newbury, Ma so i think he is a fan.
