Lord Stanley is back in town!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well we have been a bit busy.... Our hockey team the Boston Bruins have been in a championship the last couple of weeks.....
AND THEY WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is the teams logo.......

And this is the Stanley Cup. Each year it goes to the team that has won and they keep it until the next championship.....The whole team gets their names on it..Each player gets to keep it for one day and they do all kinds of fun things with it( like take it to the hospitals so the kids can see it and they take it all over town to different places. The cup itself has a lot of mystique and is most beloved here in the USA and in Canada
It is called The Stanley Cup because of Lord Stanley a Governor General in Canada in1892 He donated it as a hockey award and VOILA the beginning of the Stanley Cup!

AND NOW WE GET TO KEEP IT FOR A YEAR!!!! We were not really supposed to win and were a bit of the underdog so that makes it even more special!

This is Timmy Thomas the Goal tender( I have a little crush on him and so does Lacie hee hee)
So we have these cool Duck Boats that take tourists all around the city and then convert into boats and go into the water! And they put the team into these boats and had a parade all over the city!!!

Pl2 FLEW out to get shirts this morning but they didn't have bandannas for us ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

Archie loves this player Chara because he is 6 foot 9 which is really big for a hockey player and Archie thinks that is cool. Now you know we are an avid sports town and an avid sports family.And since 2002 we have won SEVEN championships amongst all of our sports teams!!!!

Our beloved Celtics basketball won one( I have a little crush on Kevin Garnett who is holding the trophy hee hee)

Our beloved Red Sox won 2( of course with a lot of our help)

Our football team the Patriots have won three( and everyone knows Archie played a BIG hand in that)This coach Belichik with Tom Brady the quarterback( I have a little crush on him too )

Tommy in action

It is exhausting to be sports fan here...........

ARE WE FIRST???? da Burgh is the City of Champions, but we seem to have a wee problem competing with you as um we don't have a basketball team and the's just say they aren't the Sox...

So when does the A Team get the cup? Rumor has it Archie is going to cook lobsters in it and when he's done Aggie is going to make a chowdah??? We are so there. Scruffy wants to take a bath in it...he would.

So many people! Our next door neighbor got there at 7:30 AM and he said it was already 15 humans deep on the parade route. Oh my!

Agatha, please come over and start digging up the bomb shelter at the project house. Better yet, come over and buy it and move to the burbs.

Congrats to your Bruins-I know that you both were a big help:-)

Pippen said...

What? We can not believe we are friends with Boston Bruin fans... oh well... it's a good thing we aren't actual fans and only jump on the bandwagon at the end of the year!

Sam and Pippen

PeeS. We hate to admit it but the best team did win.

William Tell said...

Hmmm...and here I thought the Stanley Cup was named after our very own Goober from Gooberstan. Anyway, seems like you two are on a winning streak whilst backing your favorite teams. We love the Red Sox, too, by the way. :)

Happy Tails,
