NBC Trolls Bruins After 9-2 Dumpster Fire Versus Kings (TWEET)

bruins dumpster fire

Milan Lucic was probably happy that he is no longer on the Bruins especially after his new team, the Kings destroyed them 9-2 at TD Garden. Wow, Bruins fans I guess the Winter Classic was a barn burner compared to the this dumpster fire.




It was so downright embarrassing NBC trolled the Bruins and their fans:

Jesus, the pussification of the Boston Bruins is in full swing!

Meet the Sox: Carson Smith

The 2015-2016 Red Sox had a surplus. Once David Price was added to the starting rotation, at least one of the five starting pitchers in the Sox’ lackluster rotation was redundant. It was also clear that GM Dave Dombrowski wanted to bolster the bullpen.

So enters Carson Smith (and exits Wade Miley). Coming to Boston by way of a trade with Seattle, Smith is young (26 years old). He is also controllable (under team control for 2 seasons and arbitration eligible through 2020).

It should be noted that Smith is very good: he has compiled a 2.07 ERA, 0.970 WHIP and has averaged 11.7 SO/9 in his two-year career.




The new Boston reliever’s arm-slot is requires a visual aid:

Smith’s side-winding delivery should confuse hitters, even in the AL East.

Apart from all of this is something highlighted in our piece on Craig Kimbrel: the addition of Smith should aid in resting and bettering the performances of Junichi Tazawa and Koji Uehara.

However, the best thing about the Miley for Smith deal might have been the other pitcher who came to Boston with Smith: Roenis Elias. We will explore more on Elias in a later post.

The Sox will ultimately save money (Miley was owed $14.75MM over the next two years, Smith’s deal is around $500K) and have the opportunity to convert their bullpen in 2016 to a position of strength.

Thanks in part to the addition of Smith, the 7th, 8th and 9th innings should belong to Boston in 2016.

Not Big or Bad: The Pussification Of The Bruins

pussification of the boston bruins
Warning: If you are all about Unicorns and Cotton Candy when it comes to the Boston Bruins, this article will offend you.

pussification

pussification (noun): the state in which a society hockey team becomes less and less tough. This noun’s originator is the famous comedian George Carlin.

“We are undergoing a pussification of our entire society hockey team.”

The Big Bad Bruins are long, gone and hard to find. That leadership, mentality, toughness, and killer instinct went to Florida (Thornton), L.A. (Lucic), New York (Boychuck) & Columbus (Campbell).




Well, the Bruins wanted to go in a different direction with the fourth line so that is why the whole Merlot line is playing somewhere else. Now the “checking line” is neither gritty nor skilled. It’s basically a black hole for players who are underachieving or who should not even be with the parent club.

Granted Lucic would be asking for a lot of money if he went to free agency, but he is looking well worth it as the Jimmy Hayes and Brett Connolly experiments are failing miserably. Neither player can score or take the body, so what do they bring to the table?

The answer: I have NO F*CKING Idea!

If you do, please leave a comment below.

Then there is Johnny Boychuck. Yes, 95% of Bruins fans will say, it’s in the past, let it go.

No, I will not and I cannot.

Since Boychuck was given away like a 3 legged chair at a yard sale, the Bruins defense has been a debacle and that’s putting it mildly. Boychuck was/still is everything the B’s need right now…..TOUGH, GRITTYDEPENDABLE & CAN CLEAR THE DAMN CREASE! That trade more than any other has put the defense’s balls in a vice.

Chara and Seidenberg are not the same guys from 2011 or 2013 for that matter. Boychuck would have taken minutes off their aging shoulders and legs.

We can thank Peter Chiarelli’s assassination of the franchise to for this blue line debacle.

Bruins By The Numbers: This Week’s Good And Bad

It was a quick week for the Bruins as they returned from the All-Star break with just two games on the schedule. After falling to one of the league’s worst teams on Tuesday, they escaped with a shootout win over another on Thursday. Also this week, the team tied a mark they took all of last season to reach, some shootout success continued for the goaltender and the first time they’ve done something all season. This is: Bruins By The Numbers: This Week’s Good And Bad.

Brad Marchand has continued his offensive productivity and leads the team with 23 goals.

2: Despite their early-season success, the B’s have just two power-play goals in their last nine games.

3: Boston allowed a power-play goal in three consecutive games from Jan. 25-Feb. 2 – their longest stretch since allowing a power-play goal in six straight from Oct. 30-Nov. 8.

3: Ryan Spooner is now 3-for-3 in the shootout this season with all three of his goals deciding the game for the Bruins.

Yes, Rob Gronkowski Is Undeniably A Male Stripper At Heart (VIDEO)

Gronk certainly seems to have a passion for dancing like a stripper just as much – if not more than football.

You may have seen Gronk on Conan a few nights ago. He recalled a night where he “accidentally” did some male stripping at a a bachelorette party in his college days and “made like $25”. Here is the clip below:

This isn’t the first time we have seen or heard of Gronk stripping.

In fact, just today he jumped right into what I’m sure was the ‘ole college routine on a Fox Sports reporter. In Gronk’s defense, she straight up asked him to give her a lap dance on broadcast, in front of thousands of people:

It’s great he plays the shy card when she first asks him to give her a lap dance. Again, probably part of the ‘ole routine.

 

And then there was that one time at the Globies Award Ceremony. Gronk broke out a similar, but quicker lap dance routine for a much, much older lady – and sat on her and practically killed her.

All the more power to ya, Gronk. There’s clearly a demand of female fans who enjoy your “services”. Some pro football players sign autographs, but not all fans want autographs. As long as he puts smiles on their faces, that’s what really matters!
