I remember the last time the Bruins won the cup

VANCOUVER, BC - JUNE 15: Tim Thomas #30 of the Boston Bruins makes a save against the Vancouver Canucks during Game Seven of the 2011 NHL Stanley Cup Final at Rogers Arena on June 15, 2011 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)

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? 

Congratulations, Bruins

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.
