As a student at Boston University, the best part of my week used to be hopping on the Green Line every Thursday night and heading down to the TD Banknorth Garden for "Student Night" and getting great seats for $20. During those days, a 1/2 filled arena was a good turnout.
Now, with the Bruins atop the Eastern Conference, tickets are a little harder to come by. With success, comes the inevitable bandwagon fans. I have nothing against them. It's completely natural that success breeds fans, and it's time the Bruins shed this persona as Boston's forgotten team.
With the playoffs starting tomorrow, I thought I would try to educate my friends over in Beacon Hill who will be sitting in the Premium section with a Garnett Jersey and a Red Sox hat on, not knowing the difference between Krejci and Kovalev.
I will give a quick rundown of names every Bruins fan must know, and explain them in terms of other Boston sports figures
*Quick note: The Boston Herald did something similar in November of 2008. I not only found that inadequate, but terribly inaccurate. Again, I have nothing against newly converted Bruins fans. The more the better.
