NESN’s Jamie Erdahl Does The #IceBucketChallenge Rockin’ Black & Gold (VIDEO)

jamie erdahl ice bucket challenge


NESN’s Jamie Erdahl had an uphill battle replacing fan favorite Naoko Funayama on Bruins telecasts. But she grew on you….it helped that she is easy on the eyes and flirted with almost every player during interviews (look at those eyes above).

After seeing even more of Jamie Erdahl during her #icebucketchallenge for ALS awareness, she may have reached a new level of hotness.

Nice touch rockin’ the Black & Gold. I would have liked to see a Spoked B Belly ring.

Is it October yet?

Oh yeah, me and every hot blooded male is chomping at the bit for the Baconator AKA Jenny Dell Middlebrooks to take a cold ice bath….

B’s Beat: Shawn Thornton’s Annual Charity Golf Tournament Is Around the Bend

Last year, Thornton's teammates Tuukka Rask and Daniel Paille helped make the event a success.

It’s that time of year, guys. On August 11th, Shawn Thornton will be teaming up for the fifth time with the American Parkinson Disease Association to raise money and awareness for Parkinson’s patients through his annual golf tournament.

The tournament, cleverly dubbed the “Putts and Punches for Parkinson’s”, will feature a celebrity long-drive competition followed by eighteen holes of golf with the enforcer himself. The celebrities making appearances this year, in addition to Thornton’s former Bruins teammates Tuukka Rask and Daniel Paille, will include former Bruins enforcer Jay Miller and his old teammate Bob Sweeney, as well as Jermaine Wiggins, who won the Superbowl with the New England Patriots in 2001, Kevin Chapman, and Jenny Dell.

The former Bruins enforcer will no longer be skating at TD Garden or dressing in the Black and Gold, but he will continue to do philanthropic work for the city of Boston. In a press release for the event, he spoke about how the city will continue to be a place that he loves and tries to make better:

“Boston will always be my home,” says Shawn Thornton. “Even though I’m not playing here, my Foundation will continue to fight to improve the lives of those affected by Parkinson’s here in Massachusetts.”

Over the course of the past four tournaments, Shawn Thornton has raised over $200,000 for the Shawn Thornton Foundation and the American Parkinson Disease Association. The money he raises through his foundation is put towards finding cures for illnesses that Thorty feels strongly about, particularly cancer and Parkinson’s. The 36-year-old forward lost his grandmother to a 14-year battle with the latter, and subsequently started the Foundation in 2013 to help him better raise funds and awareness.

Thornton may be gone from the B’s, but he doesn’t plan to give up the immense amount of charity work he does in Boston. This past year alone, he “bullied” a number of his teammates into shaving their heads with him back in March, which raised a record $118,000 for children battling cancer, and the Shawn Thornton Foundation’s team at the 2014 Boston Marathon raised nearly $70,000.

It’s not just the big things, either. Thorty and his wife have been known to take sick children to dinner and the movies on holidays, and he regularly brings his teammates to visit the children. Here’s a rather touching, if terrifying, picture of the soul-eating Chara and a few other teammates visiting kids:

B’s Beat: The Bruins Off Season So Far

Torey Krug Boston Sports Then & Now


If you are reading this article, you’ve probably taken a break from one of the most thrilling Boston Bruins’ off seasons in recent memory. Just kidding, it’s been brutal. Not only did they lose one of their best forwards in Jarome Iginla, but they’ve also yet to sign their two biggest free agents in Torey Krug and Reilly Smith.

The sting of losing Iggy is more palpable given the fact that his contract is the primary reason the B’s are in the cap hell they are in. He left town after a President’s Trophy winning season to sign an outrageous contract with the Colorado Avalanche. He has already come out and said that he believes he can win a Cup with the Avs (spoiler alert: He won’t.)

They will miss his character, leadership, and goal scoring ability, but they had to know that it wasn’t going to work out long term given his ridiculous amount of bonuses.

Peter Chiarelli and the Bruins’ brass have also signed two of their own free agents in Matt Bartkowski (1 year, $1.25 million), and Jordan Caron (1 year, $600,000). These are two guys that a lot of fans did not want back for next season, but players that are signed are easier to move via trade.

It has been stated multiple times throughout the off season that the Bruins’ are carrying a ton of NHL ready defensemen and need to deal a few for some assets, cap space, or a right hand on the right wing. It was surprising to see the team re-up Bart and Caron, but I have to believe that they did so for the sake of moving them to another team.
