I wasn't planning on posting anything here tonight but I just got back from the Bruins game and thought this would be a good time to compare the atmosphere in the Garden during a Bruins game, to that of my beloved Celtics.


I'll take a moment to preface this post by saying that I am not a very knowledgeable hockey fan.  I know the game sort of well, but I don't know all the rules, penalties, or types of players that comprise a good team.  I also don't know much about the opposing teams, and I couldn't name half the Bruins players by number when they were on the ice.  With that being said (any "Curb" fans out there?) there were some major differences I noticed tonight that in the end made me appreciate the Celtics and their fans even more than I already did.

You may be wondering if this is going to be a few paragraphs of me bashing the Bruins and their fans, and I assure you that is not going to happen.  What I will say is that the atmosphere at a Celtics game is definitely more exciting over the course of a game.
