Congrats to the Bruins!

I was in Boston yesterday and one couldn't help but notice all the Bruins hockey shirts that the fans were wearing. We did see one brave soul wearing a Canucks shirt.

Now it is official and the Bruins have captured the Stanley Cup with their win against the Canucks in Vancouver in the seventh game with a shutout score of 4-0!

Although I was born in Canada and am the mother of a figure skater and not of a hockey player, one can't help but be swept up by the celebrations in Massachusetts. Besides, as my daughter says, why can't the Canadians think of more appropriate names for their teams?

The Boston Globe has a great article on the Bruins' win and what it means for the fans -- bringing the Stanley Cup back after 39 years.

Boston will have the parade to honor the Bruins on Saturday at 11AM so be sure to watch it, either in person or on television.

Tonight we will be back at a skating rink since our daughter is preparing herself for another skating competition.
