ON SPORTS ~ Taps...


Well, if we had a Bruins flag we would be flying it at half mast today as Taps plays forlornly in the background. The B's lost in overtime of Game 7 in their 2nd round playoff series to the Carolina Hurricanes (aka the former Hartford Whalers) yesterday evening.

This crushing defeat on home ice was really disappointing for the B's and their fans. Exhibit A is, of course, Andy. Poor guy just about had a nervous breakdown watching the game and believed in his heart of hearts that the B's would prevail.

Despite the painful loss, Andy still feels it is better to have lost in this fashion with heads held high rather than laying a big fat egg like the Capitals did to the Penguins in their Game 7 blowout loss. And he is looking forward to next season already from such a young team that has gained motivation from this playoff exit.

But this loss does have one silver lining:

"I had to break out the razor this morning. I was looking forward to a big, bushy mustache well into June but it will have to wait until 2010."

Woo-hoo! Molly is doing a little happy dance!

"Maybe I'll start another one and shave it when Big Papi finally hits a home run for the Red Sox. At the rate he's going I might look like Rip Van Winkle…"

Uh-oh.

You were probably equally as disappointed that the Magic came back last night, right at the end! I was at an "end of the year" party for my golf league, and I made them turn on the TV! I'm very nervous, but I guess if we end up blowing it (which we usually do) at least it is to a Boston team!

That's the spirit Sandy!

I have to admit to being glad our Pens aren't playing the Bruins. Thankfully, my husband doesn't do the playoff beard.

Although I love my brother, I too am glad the mustache is gone. I would have preferred his heart not break in the process, but oh well!!

Personally, I think the mustache was the B's downfall.

Carol - you should be thankful indeed!
