Go Bruins... for Ritch Duncan's sake!
This year I am more excited about the Stanley Cup Final than any year since 1994 when I was living in New York and the Rangers were on the verge of ending their curse.
The only common thing is Vancouver being in it.
The Boston Bruins are in it... and being a native New Englander I know my share of Bruins fans. But nobody I know has the passion of my great friend, frequent collaborator and the man who would hang out in my apartment more often than anyone I know, Mr. Ritch Duncan.
And he is as big a Bruins fan as I am a Red Sox fan. I was at his apartment to watch the Red Sox beat the Yankees in Game 7 of the 2004 ALCS. He saw ME at the zenith of baseball happiness (let's face it Sox fans, we remember the Yankee win MUCH more than we remember the win in St. Louis!)
