In Response to Re: Lot's of Canuck fans in Boston today
[QUOTE]I went to the B's/Flyers game 6 last year and never considered wearing my Bruins Garb....As much as I would have like to, Im just not gonna subject myself to any abuse or the chance of it. The fact that people act the way they do is enough not to even give them a chance.... Call me a wuss
, but I have more to live for than making a point at a hockey game.... Its one thing for these canuck fans to dress up, but if they take it too far with the bruins fans, then maybe they deserve something..... Again, they should be able to go to a game and not have to worry about stupid fans taking it too far.

OK, you're a wuss.
Anyone who backs down from wearing their gear on the road needs to switch to girls' softball.
I live 1000 miles from my B's now, so I see the majority of my B's games on the road. I always, always wear my B's jersey no matter what rink Im in, just as Ive worn my Sox jersey at Yankee Stadium.
Oddly, I have not had trouble at the Bell Center. Ive had an occasional beer come my way in St Louis and Chicago, though.
But you have to behave. An opposing fan can root for his team, but if he gets abusive and instigates stuff, bad things will happen.
I prefer to believe Boston fans will not bother anyone from Vancouver. Enjoy the game, 'Nucks fans, and I hope your team doesn't win.
