Bruins steal the spotlight
Usually the Red Sox are in the Boston sports spotlight once the games get underway in April. But with the Bruins capturing New England's attention deep into June, the Red Sox flew under the radar. While the Stanley Cup champs reminded some fans of the carefree 2004 World Series champs, the 2011 Red Sox have yet to find their personality. Are they led by veterans Jason Varitek and David Ortiz, or has the torched been passed to Dustin Pedroia and Kevin Youkilis, representing the grit and intensity that the Bruins exemplified so well this spring? Is it inevitable that Adrian Gonzalez becomes the face of the franchise and displays a quiet leadership by example?
