I watched the game on NBC, on a 6" black-and-white TV. As soon as the final horn went -- and I mean within about five seconds -- the local affiliate cut away for the local 11 o'clock news. Didn't even get to see the cup.
The last Bruin game seven I cared about was the OT loss after the infamous two-many-men penalty. 1978? 1979?
I'm looking forward to Jim Rome tomorrow.
I'm reminded of the classic Onion headline from a couple of years ago, after the Pats' Super Bowl loss: "PATRIOTS PERFECT SEASON STILL PERFECT TO REST OF NATION."
Nine days to the draft.
