About Me: Love the Sox/Bruins/Pats, born in Boston a million years ago, now displaced. Played and coached in a much simpler time. Still get a little too shook up when the B's or Sox lose. Oh, and soccer is not a sport.

    As great as Middleton was, when I think of #16 in a Bruins uniform, I think of Derek Sanderson, period.  I have to think about the fact that, "oh year, Nifty wore that, too." Too many numbers retired. more »
