A Miracle on Ice- Game 7

Wow- THAT game last night!? Woah. If you know me, you know that I a Bruins fan. Monday I was down in the dumps all day, the lost game 6 Sunday night, they looked terrible, and I thought they were just done.

On the drive home.. I was listening to Felger and Mazz, which I love the sports hub, but I hate listening to Felger and Mazz... they are always so negative and trying to find something wrong... but when I can listen to them is when there is stuff to complain about, like how I believed the Bruins were about to get defeated by the Maple Leafs and we were going to be out of the playoffs oh so soon. I got to Waltham and I was like I need to snap out of this for the Bruins. So I put on The Boys are Back by the Dropkick Murphy's and went home to put on my Bruins jersey....

....I put my Boston Strong T shirt under my Bruins jersey. I thought, if this isn't good luck then what will be?

What happened after that is a miracle... We were down 3 goals in the 3rd period. Leafs were up 4 to 1. With about 10 minutes left we scored, but still I was sold on the idea that we were not winning this game. THEN with legit a minute of the game left Bruins scored two goals to tie it then won in over time.  CRAZY. Game 1 against the Rangers is Thursday. AH!

Despite the Bruins in the playoffs I got in some workout this weekends. I am training to run a 1/2 marathon, I am not sure if I will do it, but I just wanted a fitness plan. Saturday is cross fit day, which I like that a lot. Saturday I swam for 2500 feet (762 Meters almost a 1/2 mile) in 30 minutes. I did 3 sets of each stroke and then I did free and back the rest of the way. I saw that to swim a mile you have to swim one lap (to one end of the pool then back) 53 times! I wanted to do half that, which I did. 

Sunday I wanted to do a 4 mile run but ended up only doing 3.28. I didn't start my run till like 3:15 and I sill needed to go to the grocery store and get back for the Bruins game. We ran my favorite track around the Charles River! 


  1. i love your little superstitions and i love how much you love the bruins! i'm happy they won!

  2. Oh wow - I totally didn't even know they won...that's awesome :) And I love running around the Charles...it's so pretty!
