Cooke Hit on Savard – Was it Dirty or Not?

Posted in Boston Bruins, Hockey, Music, Television with tags , , , , , , , , on March 9, 2010 by clarencethehorse

Covering the Boston Bruins has, quite honestly, become more of a burden than I had envisioned it to be when I started this blog.  The success of last season really sucked me in….but this season has just really sucked. So I will no longer pretend to be following the Bruins season, but will be making entries about other crap.   By coincidence only, the first topic is a Bruins topic – was Matt Cooke‘s hit on Marc Savard a cheap shot?   One thing is for sure – the Bruins playoff hopes may have been taken off the ice on the same stretcher as Savard on Sunday afternoon in Pittsburg.

Further came to the Mullins Center at UMass Amherst on February 19, featuring Bob Weir and Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead.

I can’t say if the mothership ever arrived for  Sideshow Bob above, but the rest of the earthlings partied like Jerry Garcia was still on this side of the grass.

The band’s lineup also includes John Kadlecik, formerly of the Dark Star Orchestra, stepping into Jerry’s spot on guitar.
