Podcast: The Stanley Cup Finals
Brad Marchand wanted to drop the gloves at the end of Game Four.
On Saturday, I was asked to guest on the Alex Reimer Show on 1120 WBNW Boston to –unbelievably — talk about something besides the National League Central. Nope, it’s Stanley Cup Finals time, so Alex and I wrapped about the series, going over among other things:
- My overall impressions of what’s been a surprisingly entertaining series
- Whether the Canucks are as detestable as everyone in Boston seems to think
- If the suspension to Aaron Rome was warranted
- Whether this series will extend beyond Game Six
In his original e-mail, Alex mentioned that he was going to ask me about the differences between American and Canadian sports fan and, oh man, did I have some choice words to offer, but much to my chagrin, we never broached the topic. Maybe next time…
