Yesterday the Boston Bruins hosted their second annual State of The Bruins at the TD Banknorth Garden to hype the upcoming 2008-09 season. It looks like they will have quite a challenge keeping up with the recent successes of the World Series Champion Boston Red Sox, NBA Champion Boston Celtics and New England Patriots (16-0 regular season last year). As always, I suppose we can expect the B's to make the playoffs and quickly be out after the first round.
Yesterday’s event was intriguing for New England sports fans for two reasons:
1. Boston Bruins’ owner Jeremy Jacobs “ acknowleged the strong possibility of a Boston Bruins outdoor game at Fenway Park in the coming seasons”. Intriguing indeed!
2. The Bruins revealed the new alternate jersey that will be worn in about 15 to 17 games. I like it a lot! it's very traditional looking. I always though that the Bruins have had the best uniforms in the league.
I suppose if the Green could turn around a 24-58 2007 campaign to a league-best 66-16 record and a NBA Championship in 2008, then we can "keep hope alive" for the B's!
