Congrats Boston Bruins!

Welcome to Tony Island Blog!

Just a short post to congratulate the Boston Bruins hockey team on a job well done! They won their sixth Stanley Cup (the last one was in 1972!) by defeating the Vancouver Canucks, 4-0 in Game 7, on the road in Vancouver, on June 15th, 2011!

The Bruins accomplished at least one first - they were the first hockey team to win 3 Game 7s in the same playoff season.

Boston became the first city to have all four of its major sports teams win a championship in a 7 year period.

Sadly, some idiots started rioting over the loss. But, there's no need for Canadians to apologize - the world knows that the houligans that started the rioting would have done the same thing had the Canucks won it all. It was basically an excuse for them to go on a rampage and pillage, loot the city.

Canuck fans be proud of your team for all it accomplished this season - don't let the loss or the rioting tarnish an otherwise great season and proud hockey nation.
