Bruin's support in Newfoundland
posted at 6/1/2011 8:02 AM EDT
Yesterday a radio AM show in Nfld questioned why should the vast majority be supporting Boston and not their countrymen in Van.
He then said he as a Det fan has always supported his own team and that we have been following hockey for decades and the fanbase has always stayed true to their teams.
Newfoundlanders have never toed the party line, they follow their hearts and more than any other province they support their own. (As a mainlander whose wife and kids are Newfoundlanders, I can say this wholeheartedly)
The majority here are TO and Hab fans with a lot more of the original 6 teams. The younger fans have followed their own paths, a whole community (home of Ryan Clowe) follows ths Sharks, Cleary bringing home the cup a couple of years ago had more visitors to his home town than the Salmon Festival (big bands) draws.
So the vast majority is ranting and roaring for Ryder to bring home the cup, the few that aren't are mostly habnot fans that are just that habnot fans. (spitey ignoramous's)
There are many Bruin's fans across Canada, that stay true to their own as well. There are also many that see past the b-ess of cheer for your country's team, there are more Canucks on Boston than there is in Van.
This is not a Canada versus US thing, this is much bigger to true fans of hockey, this is bigger than the Olympics, than the Juniors, for egads sake man
THIS IS FOR THE STANLEY CUP!!!
So as a Newfoundlander now for more than a decade, I will rant and roar like a true Newfounlander for my team THE BOSTON BRUINS.
Nice little song for ye, let me know if link doesn't work.
We'll Rant and We'll Roar!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Dmpz5QeR_g
