The last time the Bruins played a Stanley Cup Finals game at TD Garden, there were a couple of guys in lime-green unitards in the crowd. No Green Men this time. Just a few brave souls in red Blackhawks jerseys sitting in a sea of black and gold. As you might expect, there were also a few familiar faces among the rank-and-file rowdies at Game 3, including Secretary of State
John Kerry, Charles Hotel owner Dick Friedman, Jimmy Wahlberg, Fenway Recording exec Mark Kates, restaurateur Ed Kane, Reebok’s Paul Foster, funny filmmaker Bobby Farrelly, Dropkick Murphy Ken Casey, Nora Parkington of the Parkington Sisters, and former Del Fuegos drummer Woody Giessmann. Also on hand were Notre Dame football coach Brian Kelly, Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, pro golfer Padraig Harrington, former NHL star Jeremy Roenick, Celtics big man Fab Melo
, Red Sox player Ryan Dempster, former Sox closer Keith Foulke, former Bruin Mark Recchi and Hall of Famers Ray Bourque, Johnny Bucyk, and Bobby Orr, Pats linebacker Rob Ninkovich, and owner Jeremy Jacobs and his whole clan. And tireless TD Garden president Amy Latimer strolling the suite level, pausing now and then to check on guests and employees. We also spied celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse walking around outside the Garden before the game. The Fall River native was rocking a black golf shirt with a Bruins logo, leaving no doubt who he’s rooting for. Bam!
(Meanwhile, no sign of the Blackhawks’ most famous fans, actors Vince Vaughn, John Cusack, and Jeremy Piven.)
