In Response to So should I help out a Canucks fan
[QUOTE]I've mentioned before on here that I'm a Legionaire. One of my good friends at the branch is a hardcore Canucks fan. Yesterday he asked me if he could borrow one of my Bruins' jerseys, which certainly caught me off guard. Turns out the Cup will be in town this week - not sure the exact event, but it has something to do with a charity supported by Looch/Neely. Anyways, one of his clients is involved and will have a few alone minutes with the Cup. My buddy heard this and, well, he lied and said he was a Bruins fan, in order to get a chance to spend some time with it. He is a really nice older man, so my initial response was sure, as long as I can tag along. But he says he likely couldn't bring me as well. So, do I help him out or not? I figure I should as he's been fairly kind to me, but it is a weird situation.

If he *needed* the jersey, if it was required that he has a Bruins jersey - that's a different story.
I have Bruins t shirts, Bruins polo shirts and a Bruins jacket, but I don't have a Bruins jersey. What would I do in his situation - BUY a Bruins polo and keep it and remember it as a memento.
Hell, if it REALLY REALLY came down to it and I could hang out with a bunch of old time Habs, Dryden and that whole bunch, and it required that I buy some Habs shirt or something. I would do it. and I would keep that jersey as a memento of the event.
Nice old guy or not, I can't think of a legit reason why he really NEEDS it.
And I would check around for cup appearances, I didn't think it circulated at this time of year.
