Stanley Cup: This Boston Writer Would Like To Thank Chicago Blackhawks For Truly Classy Gesture

Hyped by on June 29, 2013 Website: www.bostonsuperblog.com

The Chicago Blackhawks are the 2013 Stanley Cup champions, having staged an improbable comeback late in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals on the road against the Boston Bruins. In what can only be described as a difficult past two months for everyone in and around the city of Boston, seeing the Bruins hoist the Stanley Cup for the second time in the past three years would have been not only joyous, but quite the pleasant distraction from everyday life. Starting with the Boston Marathon Bombings and culminating in the Aaron Hernandez saga, it has been a tumultuous stretch for sports fans and citizens alike throughout New England. Not to say that these are not trying times for so many Americans right now but, living 20 minutes outside of Boston, for reasons that are right or wrong, these events hit home to people like us more than others. So, seeing the Bruins win the Cup last week would have helped aid in the healing and moving on process.
