Sounds like a typical Boston reaction.  Idiots.  If there was a Cardinal player that grew up in Boston cheering for the Bruins, I would have no problem him pulling for them now.

While I do agree, unfortunately I believe I remember Keith Tkachuk getting flak for wearing a Red Sox hat to the World Series in 04.

It is time to break this trend by beating the Bruins, go Blues.

Anyone attending game 3 or 4? THere won't be a game 6 because the Blues are going to sweep the Bruins who swept the Canes who swept the Islanders who swept the Pens.

Looks like lower bowl tix for game 4 (Monday the 1st of June) are starting at $950. After Stubhub's fees, it will probably cost $10,000.

For those curious about ticket prices in Boston, Game 2 lower bowl tix in Boston are starting at $715 on Stubhub. Surprised but also not surprised. I believe this is their 3rd Cup Finals in 9 years.

If one was a season ticket holder say 2 tickets, are they in for all 3 home games after paying for them?

Keith Tkachuk was heckled by a drunken hoosier in Game 3 of the 2004 World Series for wearing Red Sox gear.

I was thinking the same thing I did not know about the Hawks losing to Boston.

This Boston curse needs a name and it must be broken.

Nice! Same here. Was initially thinking game 4 so I can watch us sweep the Bruins but game 3 makes a ton of sense: first Stanley Cup game in St. Louis in almost 5 decades and it's a weekend night.

I was sitting about 5 rows behind Tkachuk during that game. It was way more than 1 drunken hoosier. They were coming out of the woodwork. I can't remember for sure but I think Doug Weight sat with him.

Keith was also gracious enough to provide me with a pinch of his Skoal long cut before the game started 🤗

I bought them drunk, there wasn't a lot of thought for me.

Welp the Blues got completely manhandled.

At least Chris Kerber was ready for the game.

Chris Kerber. “They just showed Patriots’ owner Robert Kraft in the video board...I guess there are some videos he doesn't mind being a part of."

Let's hope the next game does not follow the same script. Go Blues!

It's the curse of the Fox Sports Midwest Commercial.  For those who don't recall, Fox Sports Midwest ran a commercial in 2000 (maybe 2001) making fun of Boston sports teams and hyping our string of success.  It had two Boston sports fans sitting in a bar lamenting the state of their sports teams.  Well, a year later the Rams lose to the Patriots and the rest is history.
