It's that time of year again ,

Isn't life great , how about them Boston Bruin , winning that game 6 last night and going back home for the Game 7 of the Stanley cup

Last time the Boston Bruins made it to the game 7 Stanley cup was against them stinking no good Canucks 😂 , who lost on home ice and then the fans tried to burn the city down 😲 , 2011

Was some good bets made during that series , here is the stick I won that Bob Meiser made for me from a Vancouver fan that lost the bet in 2011 , it's done in the Bruins colours for wraps and jungle cock marks , I use this as my dry fly rod for steelhead and she's been to NFLD on a special river catching Atlantics on top , I use a classic old Dingley reel on this rod

Then the Bruins went up against Chicago Blackhawks a couple years later for the cup and lost it




Now it's 2019 ,

and they are 1 game away from winning it on home ice or losing it ,
Game 6 last night had me worried , now nothing is for sure yet , as them blues are the bigger and tougher team

Mr Meiser and his sidekick Nick who just happens to be a fan of them Blues have got me into another good old hockey bet

This time it's a stick of my choice for the build , against you know it ,
a very very good bottle of scotch , something like 23 years old and I'm hearing I can't even get it here in Canada , have to get it special ordered in
to be enjoyed while fishing this fall for some steelhead up in Skeena country

After last night game , I'm sure liking my odds now , I can't seem to keep the grin off my face today ,

Who thinks the Bruins will win it on home ice

Game 7

This is the 21st century. Speed and skill win hockey titles, not goonery. The #!%# Blues are channeling the Broad Street Bullies from the '70's. The head shots and thuggery have generated mucho bad karma. They die on the Garden ice Wed. Game winning goal goes to Marcus Johansson and Tuuka is stones again.

Marchand is due for a big game.
Tough to stop the Bruins when Bergeron and Marchand are on their game.
Youre safe on your bet Id say

im starting to believe the conspiracy theory and that there ARE two seasons..one based on speed and skill...and playoff hockey which seems to allow the goons out again...
I have to laugh that St. louis is doing to Boston what Boston did to those poor little canucks ...and as much as i HATE the bruins...i find myself rooting for the bassturds as St. Louie is playing the cheap shot b.s. hockey that i thought was done for?
Seems pretty hard to build a team that can win in both seasons...(see Tampa Bay out in first round)
Hopefully Seattle gets it right and our NEW hockey team won't take as long as the nukes and win !!!

Bruins for the win. May have to tie up a special fly for the occasion.

That’s a killer looking rod....despite the team. It looks like Jungle Cock birds must be Bruins fans too.

Well that happened! Happy for St. Louis. Being a habs fan anytime Boston gets beat warms my heart and a game 7 loss in the Stanley cup final on home ice makes it that much more special!
