In response to Not-A-Shot's comment:
I know plenty of people like that.
I do my best to avoid them. In real life, it's easy. Here? Not easy. The place has been overrun for months with people posting all sorts of garbage. And tonight, instead of defending the Bruins, I'm just lambasting each and every one of you who turned your backs on this team.
Sorry NAS, but this time I won't stop. I'm stubborn like that.
If I had really turned my back on the B's, I would have turned off the game and stopped watching completely, but I didn't. You know why? It was because I wanted to see if the team I was rooting for was really the bunch of losers I was watching at that time, or if they had the commitment to actually make a game out of it. And guess what, they did more than that. They won.
And because I am so objective, I will say that the B's and the fans need to make changes. They are both much too complacent regarding this team. Instead of constantly wanting it to get better, they are content with retaining the status quo. It takes something devastating for any of you to get off of your a**es an actually say something or take any actions.
If the B's lost tonight, what would you all be saying? You would be saying that they need to get better. I think like that all the time, not just when they lose. Until they are the absolute best team in the league, I won't accept anything less. Even after they won the Stanley Cup, I wanted them to trade Thomas. You know why? Because I knew they had a capable goalie in Rask, Thomas' trade value was at its highest, how much longer he would be able to put up those numbers was questionable, and I knew they could get better. As it turns out, my decision was correct well before I ever intended for it to be.
That is the type of mentality I want out of others. But I know that won't happen because most people don't think that way.
