Yesterday was my better half’s birthday (Happy Birfday!) and after a day of various activities, including dinner at her mom’s house, we found ourselves at our favorite bar in Charlestown, unwinding with a glass of vino, and chatting with our friendly neighborhood bartender, when out of nowhere…
Bruins forward Sean Thornton shows up with the Stanley Cup. Yes, that one. The enormous one that goes to the team that wins the NHL Championship. He plops it on a table, and he, his wife, and their friends order up some apps and drinks. Meanwhile, 90% of the bar is losing their minds, texting friends, etc. I texted up Cutty, who showed up 2 minutes latter with his camera phone and a big grin.
Mrs. Hoffa and I are not huge hockey fans, so we were sort of like “Huh! Look at that! Don’t see that every day.” But there was one guy there, who really took it to the next level.
“DUDE, THIS TOTALLY MADE MY YEAR!” (pronounced yee-aah)
“FORGET THE SHOT IN THE GAAHDEN, THIS IS MY ‘SAVE THE DATE’ MAGNET. MY FIANCEE IS GONNA BE PISSED!”
and the fiancee would probably love these gems:
“THIS IS BETTA THAN THE BEST STRIPPAH EVAH!”
“THIS IS BETTA THAN PORN!”
Said zipperhead had several pictures taken with the trophy; we thought he might actually lick it. Hooray for hockey fans!
