April 20, 2009 7 PM ET
Radio: WBZ 1030AM
@ Habs
Bruins lead, 2-0
  • Lucic suspended 1 game.
  • Markov, Boullion, Ference, Hunwick injured.
  • Wheeler-Krejci-Ryder is back, baby!
  • Bitz in on the 4th line.
  • Habs goalie is game-time decision.
  • Sox crushed the Orioles today.

This day is called the Feast of Crispian:
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a-tiptoe when the day is named,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall see this day and live t'old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say "To-morrow is Saint Crispian":
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars
And say "These wounds I had on Crispin's day."
Old men forget: yet all shall be forgot,
But he'll remember with advantages
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words
Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester,
Be in their flowing cups freshly remembered.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he today that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now abed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day. (IV, iii)

I see what you're doing with the whole "English speakers going into French country to whup ass" and all, but you Americans were the ones who tossed your tea and quit being Brits. Us Canadians still have the Queen, whether Quebec likes it or not. (Montreal, for the record, doesn't really mind the Queen. They named a lovely hotel after her.)

Oh, and f the Bruins, just for old times sake.

Oh wow, that was a way more awesome pick for an inspirational pick now that I've learned about the Battle of Agincourt.

I am so smart! S M R T!

If Canada is really British why does it have a separate Olympic team?

I think it is a load of crap that Lucic gets a game he would have been better off beating the tar out Lapierre (sp) the guys is an absolute hack.
