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.
