"Well, I think like you, we had the great fortune of being born in Boston. I mean, my childhood was Ted Williams. Number four, Bobby Orr and Bill Russell. So, you know, I just, it was championships, the Celtics did not lose until I was in high school. It was ridiculous. And on Halloween, I would dress up as Sam Jones, who we just lost a few months ago, but I would draw the number 24 on my little white T-shirt and try to learn a bank shot. So I mean, you know, this tooth is the in Boston three things are important. Politics, sports, and speaking. You know, it's like, I remember at The Boston Globe where you know I started. I didn't take the floor unless I had something interesting or funny to say, because words are our theater in Boston. I guess maybe closest to London, you know, that's what we major in. So I really, I knew I wanted to be a sportswriter from the time I was ten years old, 9 or ten years old, and my family had moved quite a bit when I was younger, and we were living in Cincinnati, and my mom, one day she was a teacher, and she said to me, I was about ten, and she said, what do you think you want to be when you grow up? And I said, I want to be a sports writer. Which, of course, was a job that did not exist for women. But she created the whole template of my life. She didn't say, oh, you can't do that, girls don't do that. She said, that's great. Sometimes you have to cross when it says don't walk. The name of your book, which by the way, for any of you out there, is the easiest and greatest read. Because it's written in your voice. And that's such a gift. I think so many writers don't understand that you can write like you're having a conversation. Well, circle around to this later on in the podcast because I learned how to write by watching you to write conversationally like you're having a conversation. That's what the book is like. The whole book feels like you're talking to me. And that it's intimate. It's a relationship. It's almost like having a back and forth only you're the one that's the listener, which is the kind of neat and special feeling about it..

Even subaru who gave ten million or something to a hospital. Montreal might step up and go. I may want to touch that up a bit. Okay yeah to help other guys so all right. That's all i got in that as well And also as much bobby orr scoring final. Nhl goal On this date in history also on the twenty seventh now gala floor. He scored the first goal in his. Nhl career fifty years ago. Which is. I'm sure making a good number of our listeners. Feel extremely old. Leflore entered the fray and scored his first goal mistake fifty years ago. I'm curious stevie. I need to ask you something again. Okay because the other day. I was preaching about okay everyone knock it off with the houston astros being big cheaters. Okay that's enough that's enough. It was a really enough to the you know the cheating stealing signs and crap like that. Is that really enough to bury this team alive. Okay and that was my take and and you said no no other cheaters. And i wonder stevie you i now have not talked about baseball and i wonder if it's because i've i had it on last night. The first game the world series and i'm turning an ongoing. Yeah i don't like these guys anymore. Because he cheated. So i gotta take back what i was saying. It is completely taken the shines and you know. I like baseball steve. I got two games. I got the blue jays on all the time in my house when i'm home But i was watching it last night and couldn't help time. I looked at it. I kept in the kept going on at the same place. If cheaters writers. My love of baseball has really taken a hit. Like i don't know what it is but since we had an since covert. I don't know i just i'm more into hockey more into the nfl. And i'm almost series. Isn't that weird yet. The world series right now and i was massive baseball fan of called professional baseball for like four years when the ottawa lynx were here i was the play by play announcer. I i am as an expo fan. I was as big as they came. But i don't know it's just watch the blue jays atl little blip of interest when it looked like they were gonna make it and then they didn't and i rarely have not watched very and i apologize while the baseball fans who listen to this program on the lack of baseball talk. We've had. I just haven't watched enough of it to engage in any really intelligent conversation about it. Braves were up one. Nothing in this series. I can tell you that much. But i just Baseball's fallen off my radar lately. And i'm not entirely sure why yup. Well i think. That's why i can't speak for you but i know it's for me when i looked at the world series manning a sit down and watch the sues i clicked on. What's the cheating astros Yeah not so much not so much. I'm cheering against them. Because of that and so back to the nfl for a second. I'm cheering against the detroit. Lions because they have a chance to make history right now because bad place. tv guy. no. I know but i'm a green bay packer fan. It's my nature to hate the detroit. Lions longtime divisional rival and. They really haven't been much of a rival but they have a. They still have a chance to become the second team in history to have the first team in nfl history to have two winless seasons. The two thousand eight lions were owen. Sixteen and the lions is still have a shot to go in seventeen as of course. We have a seventeen game season this year. So and you know what the the gamblers are lining up taking chances on the lions putting up another winless season. Come on steve. You're a sports podcast here. You've got to be a little more positive. I am positive. I'm excited about this winless. Okay i'll get on there to get are going to look at the odds today for that. See what see what. It is.

"That. And i just don't understand it. So apparently the leafs woeful start is all about what they're wearing the rink the dumbest take ever really. What's next on your gonna come on. I'll tell you what i'll tell you. What their stevie jimmy. These kids should be wearing skinner boots. Okay when they go to the rink okay. Maybe it's gonna plastic launch pal. Okay let's get back to those days are right. We should do that. Maybe those ten little rubber pants. Stevie that your mum put over your your pants. Let's say let's get back to that. Okay we maybe safari suit okay. Velour jacket velour pants. Stevie was hush puppies. Can we get back to that. Steve show a little respect. Toronto maple leafs. That's that's no no no exactly and we've just introduced this story so we could do both do bad on cherry impressions yours. Winds certainly mine was good anyway. His favorite player. Of course is bobby orr and on this date in history. Nineteen seventy eight bobby. Orr scored the final goal of his. Nhl career happened in. Chicago's seven to win over the red wings and you're asking yourself. How do your final goal. In the month of october well that would be the final year of his career equipment season because of all the knee injuries and in preparation for the show. I go back and well mostly because i like doing going back and looking. Nhl clips from the past. That found a clip of bobby orr taking on the detroit red wings where he suffered a knee injury and and i showed you the video like that was just. The there was a frontier justice. The wild west or something clearly bobby or at that stage of the game and it looked like something from the sixties. I mean it was a clear situation where kids flying around and make me look bad and the red wings were out there. In one of the great acts of thuggery. It seemed like every player on the ice. Wanted to blow bob yours neo out right before frank. Mahovlich finally did wasn't a gross to watch that as or charges up the ice. They're all running in his knee. Yeah it was crazy absolutely crazy. Forget that it used to be so bad so bad. It's like sending a guy onto the ice gone. Yeah just read an article today. The bobbers nursing terrible knee. And there's not much you know one more little bad hit and you could end this unbelievable career. Okay not unbelievable how. What did i read today. Perhaps the best hockey player ever. Yeah okay. so here's what you do. Go smashes knee. Get out there okay. Let's end this beautiful career. Okay with with hammering him on his knee. Watch the video folks watch it and i was thinking i always think of And i know we're talking about school. Probably anybody under forty is going. But everybody knows. Bobby orr and the problems will frank. Mahovlich was not a small name in the nhl and he played on that seventy to summit series team for example. He was well known as a as a very good player in the game. I never heard that about him that he would be willing to do something like that like he. He very clearly. If you watched this video of this incident he finishes off. Bob your bob yours. Coming across the middle. Frank is lining him up. His leg comes out good and early and his game plan is to clean out that knee and i did not know frank mahovlich was that kind of player is what i always think steve. What is teaching the kids when they see that you know so kids are going to oil. I see okay. That's the way you do it. Okay i gotta go to. I'm going to go to school. 'cause because kevin galardo okay as diabetes. So let's go there and and let's rip that insulin pump out of his out of his side stevie. Okay let's do that. Wow that's what you do this. That's okay that's we're going to do. I was watching the bobby your game last night. Okay that's just hacking away at his bad knee trying to end his career. So why don't we do that. We're going to go to the hospital and take oxygen. Prongs steve ever knows my gone too far. Maybe a little maybe a little but you know what if it happened today. They'd probably be a hobby. Could probably think about a strong five thousand dollar fine or something nasty like that. I as fast forward to today. Pk sue band got a league. Maximum five thousand dollars for dangerously tripping calgary flame ford mellon lucia on tuesday night. And it's just it will like you were saying earlier like why bother five grand like how can that possibly be a league maximum. I just i just don't understand that. And from both sides like the league should want their star players taken care off. Sure you will in the nhl should want the same thing but somehow they arrived at five thousand dollars as the league. Maximum for finds it just makes sense it okay and in this case sue ban gets less the benefit of the day because we talked about this in a recent episode. It was just last week. Where maybe maybe longer than that. It was actually a preseason thing. I think but it wasn't that long ago. A couple of weeks maybe sue ban basically kick the feet out from underneath ryan reeves without reeves had broken his leg on the plight. Recall any other the you got anything for that. And then he does basically worse. Example of that on lucci just basically kicks his back leg out from underneath him and awful stuff. And if you're repeat slough foot guy you should be getting something. yeah. I totally agree disagree. Wholeheartedly disagree with And you you oppa so much of this sustainable. That lovie hit on the guy. I think we talked about it yesterday. Where i said a ticked all the boxes for suspension. I'd agree and ruskin on there. We sent him the video. Russ look there. Oh no he's gliding from the from the top of the circle okay. So it's not because he's a big two hundred and thirty pound guy so it's not his fault that he was gliding. I said russ gliding from twenty five feet out there skating a million miles an hour to get to that right. Yeah i didn't like russ's take on that thing and no repercussions this guy steve okay. There's no retribution right. There was nothing and the the. I don't know you know what they should do. Steve is they should the five grand fine. They should just say and it would. It would be laughable. But it's the equivalent of the five grand being laughable is go Sue bam slow repeat offender eight dollars. Eight pursue back okay. He's going to get eight. Do the other guy twelve dollars stevie okay because it's the second time he's done it and some change in there too like twelve dollars and seventeen cents or so that's right. He's going to get an eighteen dollars. Seventy one cent fine okay. Terrible what he did and he injured that guy really thirty one fifty for that stevie okay. Thirty one dollars and fifty cents. We gotta start to teach these guys a lesson stevie they might as well do that steve. This is coach for these guys. It makes no sense at all and it goes to the. Did he's grounded. He's not going to be able to use the car tonight. Yeah okay stevie. That's what they should do right. Take the car keys right out of his hand steve. You'll have to get a ride home after the game. The fine goes to the nhl players emergency assistance fund which provides money to former players in their families who are in need all the more reason to jack up the price tag a little bit to put a little money into that thing because among those in need or probably guys who have massive concussion issues and as a as a result struggling in situations where guys are doing this stuff lead to those situations.

And they're only promoted halloween. Either candy kisses or halloween kisses right rock-hard little molasses taffy or something. And they always have the incurs that make them kerr.

"Who cares about the outlaw era. I mean, shoot. We could go back a generation before. I mean, what the hell was Michael Irvin? Bob is calling from Pittsburgh. Bobby Orr, CBS Sports radio. Yeah. Um, I get what some of his saying is, because I'm not saying he's better. No, I'm coming out, saying I'm just saying that I think especially with like some positions. Like I don't think Emmitt Smith is the greatest running back of all times Just because everything that he was went went through, you know, I would definitely take Barry Sanders and some other guys like Jim Brown was great. And look at the teams that they were on. Um, now I understand the different argument what I'm saying. I mean, I get what he's trying to say, but I don't agree with him being as it I mean, those guys that made impact like I don't like Antonio Brown, but in a couple years that he did play for the Steelers, she probably was one of the greatest in that. Time of his air, Like in this couple years, he was on the track being what? Jerry Rice with Bean if you had kept your head on straight, and there's also Calvin John tonight. If you put a state out, But you know those guys aren't saying anything, but this is my opinion. Thanks not well, Thank you, Bob for calling up from Pittsburgh. Yeah, well, I mean, We have plenty of folks like you said Barry Sanders saying Ain't say a word never did. Until the final word he said was I'm out of here. I'm not doing this. It's the same thing from Calvin Johnson. Not a poor man has to. Actually he has to fight with the organization now about money. How ridiculous is that? You know what I like? Like people who show up the work. Do what the hell they need to do. Do it at a high level. Work in the solid construct of a team and keep it moving, not to the detriment of everybody. It doesn't matter what the hell you do in life. I don't care what your profession is. That wasn't Randy Moss. Randy Moss was the guy was better than everybody. It didn't help folks out. Did his own thing. Did it to the detriment of the team was a distraction in certain instances, despite his immense talent. Say that Don't say nonsense. Like yeah, it was better than Jerry Rice. Paul is here from Idaho. Paul, you are CBS Sports Radio, The J R sport brief show. Hey, they are You know when it comes to impact And GameDay. You put on their helmet you put on the uniform. And you go to work. And I'm from the old school. I'd rather here's a half a dozen guys. I'd rather half Receiving the ball. Art Monk, John Stop Stallworth, Lynn Swan, Steve Large and Donald Driver, Cliff Bridge. You want me to keep going? These guys they won They're part of the team. Okay, Paul. Well, thank you for calling for minor hole. I'll tell you this this much not everybody is always gonna get that full opportunity. T go out there and win. Okay, not everybody is going to be a champion. But, you know, I say this. It starts in the mirror first. Who the hell are you? What are you capable of doing? How do you contribute to the team's success? Nobody looks at Larry Fitzgerald and goes Wow, man. Oh, on Lee, if this guy would have Won a championship. People still look at life, Ridge Gerald and say, Well, damn, man, look it! Look at how long you've been doing it what you've been doing to the longevity. The height of it. You can't take anything away from him. Here. You have someone who has more talent. Like a Randy Moss. And now all of a sudden after the fact he wants to crow about it. Not worth the bra. Jace calling from Atlanta Jr CBS Sports radio. Go ahead. Hey, man, help the holidays. Congratulations on your success. But the thing is when random within his plan If you remember Jerry Rice said to him If he improves kids work ethic, he could be the greatest. The whole time. Randy never responded then, and Randy should respond now. So, uh, just the best man to go. I gotta figure. Okay. Now that that's the same Thank you. J for calling from Atlanta. That's and that's evident. That's evident he could've had Super Bowls. He wouldn't have to crow about politics and stats if he just showed up and did his job. Artists here from Arizona. Aren't you want CBS Sports radio? Go on ahead. Man what a day Jr crash it as usual. I got a couple of days this hand I mean, listen to you out there. He must have through every statistic. From Florida State from Marshall. From when your dirty birds went down there and did the nerdy bird on them from 40. Niners from the Titans. Only statistically, the numbers he didn't throw out was When he his rookie year and when he was in New England, But on top of that, my my last dish that I'm from the old school man, Armonk, Tim Brown. Chris Carter. I'm something he blasts on the even mentioned. Cris Carter. Cris Target, Todd immodest an a league and look how he started up. But Randy Macho man come on, man, Decade on his podcast, man, and they just be filming himself, Man. That's all I got to say. And I'm gonna listen to you out there. God bless, hop. You know the days my dude. Yuhas. Well, our thank you so much for calling from Arizona that that's fax. Yeah. I mean, you think about how he busted onto the scene. And 98. Cris Carter and Jake Reed. Robert Smith was they had AH, bombs away offense. And he was still the guy that you looked at and said, Whoa! How's he better than these other two guys? How is he the best offensive player on this team and he just got into the league..

"Someone like this I'm I don't agree. With with Bob. You're on on his election leanings here on on his political leanings disappointment disappoints me for sure but I'm going to carry on with my life I'm not going to you know go on this campaign this social media reign of terror to make sure everybody knows that I despise Bobby Orr and all he stands for now it's like Gay. I disagree with his political leanings and that's about the extent of it and everybody's raging. Everybody's completely raging about it I guarantee that you know what? They may not admit it because of the reaction we're seeing here, but there's probably people in your circle of friends who in their heart of hearts probably lean more to donald trump than they do joe Biden. Even as Canadians were keeping an eye on things and we're taking sides right chances are you've got friends who feel the same way bobby or does Are you going to? Distance yourself from your good friend you. Cut them out of your life I don't i. don't think you are. So I don't i. just feel like everybody's while I disagree with bobby or I feel like everybody's just going crazy over this well, you don't want to. The irony for me to is? So, bobby or has an opinion. Okay. he goes public with it. And everyone weighs in on twitter. Okay about their opinion of Bob Yours opinion. Okay, and it's a public forum twitter. Scotrail although social media stuff and so they're chastising this guy for having an opinion yet they're they're giving an opinion. Right. I don't know if I'm making sense there, but you're you want this platform to provide Europeans. Twitter facebook instagram whatever else people use right to do it you want to be heard. That's that's a that's a big part of this social media stuff right? It's brought the whole world into your living room. All right to hear their opinions. So I don't I don't I don't engage too much anymore I did it once and I just about got. Just about died from from doing from the opinions of people. So it's really funny that you would call a guy disgusting for his opinion and that's your opinion. you know what I mean yeah. Totally, yeah I again I'm I'm hoping I HOPE DONALD TRUMP loses i. don't like Donald at all I hate to things. He says and does I. Want I hope that this will be the last we have to see him In this role. But. I'm not going to again go on this campaign of insulting everybody who for whatever reason aligns with him? Yes. There's a lot out there for sure. It's kind of a funny story as we get ready for tomorrow's election. I thought just finishing up our conversation about about trump in that. He's not been able to find a campaign song. Dancing. And the old suit I. Think. We talked about it. You Know Daddy got the SUCI wears off twenty years old or the style of them I? Don't know. I'm sure there on old but. That at. The styles a whole of the deal. Every time I guess the trump campaign decided okay We need this song for our campaign..

Like can tell you I, met him in studio. We had him in studio for an hour. It was angry Allen I the morning show day Bobby Orr came in from that for the last show. Yeah it was amazing. I got he's one of those guys in this. You Know I. I've used this reference before, but he would be one of those guys as well. You spend about five ten minutes with him. You feeling like the guy's already your best friend and just a just a lovely guy and and not at all arrogant you know he's one of the greats of all time quite obviously comes as the best of all time and just really nice really down to Earth. Think at the time and Yes. So I have nothing but great things to say about Bobby Orr as a player and as a person. Until maybe what he did Like late last week, you took out a full page ad in Friday's New Hampshire. Union. Leader. TO INDICATORS ENDORSEMENT OF DONALD TRUMP IN TOMORROWS presidential election. So while that Kinda was disappointed by that I, don't know if I got the rage that. So many others hat on social media like much much.

And I had the camp Cole who is a big writer Canadian Guy I think he's retired now. You probably remember that name he he wrote a bunch of stuff. Yeah. I remember is get the mustache.

"I think Sarah's Bobby Orr and LeBron James killed. I think the big difference between the two situations is that You know, Bobby was a retired player, and he's entitled to his opinion. And LeBron James is even toddlers opinions. But when you're at work, you're at work. Do your job. And like Bill Belichick says, Just do your job. I went back. Rick, do you remember? I don't know how long you've been a Bruin stand. I'm guessing all your life. But remember when Thomas wouldn't go to the White House in 2011. I thought, you know what? That's Tim Thomas's deal. And if Tim Thomas doesn't want to go, why am I going to jump ugly on him? I just didn't think I thought this why, you know people that say, Trump changed everything. I think you have a short memory. Tim Tom. It's not going to the White House was a big, big story, and people were really mad at him. And people changed their opinion of Tim Thomas, based on a political decision that he made and so what? I'm telling you, why bring that up is that this stuff has been percolating for a long time. Trump may have made the water boil quicker, but it was going to boil anyway, because this is who we've been, and this is the trajectory we've been on. Trump becoming president has just brought more people into the light. That's all. I think, write well, and you know what? I don't know. If you remember this. What Tim Thomas? They asked. They said, You know how come you never told us how you felt about at the time President Obama. And he said, you know, he says, I'm not a political commentator. I'm a hockey player. I'm going to play hockey. That's what I'm going to go and then You know, he's entitled to his opinion not to go. Just like Mookie Betts didn't go. You know, like, I respect that Steph curry any of these guys like I think One of the things I want to take away from body or is I think we need to do is put the shut up in dribble thing away. And I think whether they're playing or not, I think find you have an opinion. Weaken Judge you based on it. But what we can't do is talk down to you. I mean, if you say something completely ignorant and completely stupid, Okay, that's one thing, But you want to have your opinions. You can have your opinions. You want to be for Joe Biden before Joe Biden You want to be for Trump B for Trump. The idea that we can't get past that anymore, and we can't laugh with those people. Or we can enjoy a concert or a movie with those people. Is that who we want to be? I hope not. And I think it shows the smallness of who we become. Absolutely. I would never lose a friend over politics. I mean, if you would make an immature, too in the politics, and you need to step back, That's true of anything. This was the whole Red Sox Yankees thing when it got to be where I don't even want to speak to you because you got a Yankees hat. Relax, man. The guy roots for the Yankees. So what? But people were so hard core on it. And so but do it in a fun way. Do it in a fun way in Trump. Trump. There's certain people in the country that just there's no fun in it, and they cannot. They just can't get past it, And I think Don lemon told you last night. He's one of them. And so it goes and that stuff Those relationships fall by the wayside, and they aren't coming back because, as Bill Parcells famously, said lightning You find out more about your team when they lose than when they win. Don Lemon's team lost in 2016. And now you're finding out about don lemon. And that's the guy. So why would you then go back to being friends with Don lemon. If he caught you lose when things didn't go his way, 617 to 66 68 68. Good call. I appreciate it, Rick Mohr of your calls on the other side.

"I when I was at the SPN those years I got I was very fortunate with the ESPN magazine would send me out of some of these trips to see the junior age players, and go to world junior championships in different events. And I really was impressed with doc, and I just and plus the devils a who the devils were under whoever, oh, this is a perfect match. And so I felt the need to tell them that and he probably like I said, he'd probably I think he still thinks I'm crazy probably. But I thought I it stuck with me all these years later. So the reason I bring this up is was there that kind of moment in this draft, if not running and getting security chase after you where you said, you know what? Trud move that, that's a really really good move. You know what not so much in the first round, I don't see the players as much. Now I do the draft. But what happens when I do the draft on it? Is that we are a sign that we pick players like, you know, there's on our coverage we had Dave, read and Brian law, and then, Sam causing Tino as the made guys on the main desk, doing, you know, the analyst work, and then I am at aside death with Jackie redden, Mico O chill out. And what happens is we're all we all pick and choose players, and I get a list of about thirty guys twenty five or thirty. They have a longer list, there, like forty or forty five guys. And when the player was called they come to you for, like a little EJ. What can you tell us on this guy and I give a little bit of a, you know what I've learned from talking to the coaches. I might call the coach of the junior team. Scouts, I've talked to and the one guy that I felt really I thought was is going to be a really good hockey player down the road is the Kintu flyers draft. And in the second round Bobby bring because first of all, he's got a great name is middle name is or so. It's Bobby ORR, bring okay? How there is like a from Minnesota. He's a crazy hockey guy and he. Named all of his kids will have different hockey connections than the kid's name is Bobby ORR, brink, and I caught these kind of you watch him in film. He's a little bit of a sloppy skater. But when you talk to the coaches that have had him, they all say the same thing that I when I first I wasn't sure what this kid was, and he does nothing but help you win. And the flyers got him. I think it's thirty three or thirty four and I didn't know them, but I saw his story for you. He walked by our set, and we were not on and I start yelled out to one of the flyers PR guys. I said, hey, bring him over and the guy brought over Bobby. And I just said, I introduced myself and I just found him on the back. I said you are a hockey player you are going to be been hockey, he started laughing, and, you know, and all we go, so I don't know how it's gonna play out with them. I really not seen employ other than just the fact talking to the coaches that had him. They were so enthusiastic in talking about him. That it pressed me. And he got called in to play on the world of the US national team. The under eighteen team due to some injuries and perform quite well for them. I'll be curious how he how he does. And there's the flyers later pick the kid Ronnie adder out of Tri city in the US, H L. And he's an overage kid. He went through two drafts. This year, the USA Joe from defense from as a right defenseman six three two hundred pounds. He scored thirty goals shattered the US H O record for scoring by defenseman in a single season and kind of a late bloomer and the flyers grabs him as well. And I was like, why there's another guy that talking to the coaches loved them. Great work ethic, great leader. So there's a lot of stories. We'll see how it plays out..
St. Louis Blues defeat Bruins to win first-ever Stanley Cup
"They can sing whatever they want in Saint Louis. They are not singing the blues last night game seven of the Stanley Cup finals in Boston. The Saint Louis blues defeated the Bruins four to one for their first Stanley Cup Saint Louis. Score twice late in the first period. Ryan Reilly put in the first goals going for the fourth game in a row Alex betrayal match with eight seconds left before the horn. It stood up until the third brain. When Brayden Schenn Zach Sanford at it third period scores. While Jordan Bennington booted out. Everything Boston threw at him for most of the night. Thirty two saves a Senate shutout hopes dashed by Matt grizzlies in the closing minutes. O'reilly was named the Conn Smythe trophy winner is playoff MVP eight postseason goals. He's the first player to score in four straight games in the finals since Wayne Gretzky, we've heard of him the loser in the Stanley Cup finals each of their first three seasons after the big nineteen sixty seven NHL expansion. They were coached by the legendary Scott Bowman, but they were swept each time by the Canadians and then the Canadians again. And then by the Bruins remember that Bobby ORR flying goal, that was then that was the last time the blues were in the final, and this. Here. They managed to beat the Bruins with a statue of that Bobby ORR goal right outside of the TD garden. So hockey season is over the new hockey season begins next Friday with the

"The situation reversed Carolina through it up over the glass. The referees called the penalty, and I was sitting there in that building kind of dreading power play goal in overtime to win it on that particular play because it was obvious that one had been missed in that case. It worked out where they were able to kill the penalty and the game was not the result was not marred by miscall. So it is something where they're going to have to look at long and hard, and it's been a couple of months. There's been some some temp situations more than I can remember. I don't know how you feel about it. But it seems like more. Than I remember recent years in the two month playoff window. It's incredible really. When you think about it, and a lot of that has to do with the fact that brought ching HD. There's a lot more angles. Everything's on television now. We didn't have that benefit. We were growing up. You know where a lot of games weren't available to us. You know, you read about it, but you didn't know how bad it really was the other couple of nerdy stats for you. But I think it's kind of interesting with Kumon scoring last night. Twenty different goal scores for the Boston Bruins matter of fact, they've had twenty one skaters play in the postseason Alba, John Morris scored a goal. That's the first time. That's happened since the flyers eighty-seven had twenty different goals scores. They ended up losing Ted Minton, but they went to game seven in eighty seven so they've really been able to spread the wealth around this will be the first game seven of Stanley Cup final in Boston ever that kind of blows me away. Right. I mean this is not a thing that came into existence last year. They've been in existence since the mid twenties and have been had their sheriff. Success since the Stanley Cup finals gone to a best of seven, I guess it was nineteen thirty nine that there's never been game seven the first game seven of a championship series, be played in Boston since the Lakers and Celtics nineteen Eighty-four. Wow. So. History right there. And I know Boston the Bruins had a game seven in Vancouver in the finals in two thousand eleven and they went on the road or wherever to win it. It's, you know, the Bruins for many, many years, I guess, when you said from thirty nine they started the best of seven, right? Yeah. Bruins were kind of a doormat, you know, when you get into the forties, fifties, sixties and into the Bobby ORR. And then they became a force. For chevaliers. They won the two cups. I think kind of were good but never enough to win again until twenty eleven. So I guess that get understand in a little bit. But that's a long stretch not to have a game seven in like that a final number game sevens over the years in that building. They had one earlier this playoffs against Toronto. So it'll be fun night. It'll be real interesting night. There in Boston. We talked a little bit earlier in the podcast. Again, when the series I started a difference in cities, right? You had a great analogy about their, you know, the CVS is being a little bit more available to you, because the different cities. But well how about just from the hockey standpoint of it as there been a big difference between just the fan base is in the reaction to these games between Boston and Saint Louis. Yeah. I mean well to passive fan bases. First of all, to great sports downs. I felt really you know we go to the games. Know I'm covering the games. I try to give everybody my, you know, my honest about things. Sometimes you greet me. Sometimes you don't that's fine, the but I did feel. A little sadness for the fans in St Louis history. Because think about the blues they come into the league and sixty seven there in that Western Conference. They have that successful, but it's, it's they were the best of the expansion teams and then they were fed to the lions and the final, it would lose three straight down like a final, as, as you know..

"Many, but he just good natured ribbing. But no, it was a fantastic play. We tried to get the puck up the up the boards and Bobby instant and was able to keep it going. You know, would have gone by them, we might, but not many went by Bobby ORR. And he threw it in the corner to Sanderson Dirk Sanderson made a nice outlet pass. And as he skated across put he put right in the net. And, and that's when he started to fly through the air with. Defenseman Noel Picard right beside him. So I guess when it looked back. You know, we lost the first two at home pretty pretty big scores. But we lost the last game four three and we made at least we made it a game going out. Four straight. It was the third straight Cup final loss and third straight sweep for your blues, looking back now does not winning the game bother you. I mean I, I was disappointed. We lost the three three years twelve twelve games in the finals. Then but then I encountered a lot of tweets from then on both ways, you know, strange thing you don't think there's a lot of tweets in the finals. But I think I know I know I had Montreal we had to for sure four I had a tough loss in new against New Jersey with Detroit Pittsburgh. We, we had a sweep of Chicago in ninety two. And so, you know Detroit we had a couple of weeks. So I'm I'm probably leading the league tweets on both sides. You know, Scotty, let's fast forward to two thousand nineteen what do you see? When you look at this year's boots. At think you're gonna see a good series you know you got an underdog team and the team that's just rolled along. With so much balance. And you know, it's, it's gonna be quite a it's the biggest challenge, Saint Louis is going to have playing team like Boston, because we all forget that Boston had a very good regular season. I think they had honored and seven points. So it's not like they came out of nowhere. You know. No, they did not. So you have a prediction. I think it's taught I really do. I think Boston has has the makings of, of family Cup team and Saint Louis could surprise everybody. That's why they play Scotty. Thanks for your time Steve by right now. This game is it's also to to after forty minutes, by the way, the Saint Louis blues with Bowman and the other night game one they've lost thirteen consecutive Stanley Cup final game. They're trying to franchise. I get our score at the two periods of play tonight and came to the Bruins and blues, Eden at two apiece from NBC sports. Westwood one. This is the National Hockey League. As a seven piece fan.
Blues and Bruins meet in a Stanley Cup Final 49 years in making
"Scott. The Stanley Cup finals between the Boston Bruins and the Saint Louis blues begin Monday. This is kind of Cinderella vs Godzilla. In a way they weren't that far apart in terms of the regular season. Only really a game. But in terms of history up -solutely, the Saint Louis blues have not been to the Stanley Cup since nineteen seventy. When they lost to the Boston Bruins, and the famous shot of Bobby ORR leaping through the air giving the Bruins their first Cup since nineteen twenty nine I think it was just an amazing moment. If you're a bus Donen, however, this is gonna be a fun match up. I really sort of enjoy, what the what the blues have done and they they're so tough. They were down two games to one against San Jose. And then they just went on a tear the Bruins of the hottest team in hockey. They've won seven straight. So you have this great clash and the blues are just so tough in their tough on the road. They played better on the road than they do at home. And I'm really looking forward to seeing this matchup. This matchup brings especially the two lines. Terasenko and shorts and this, these guys are are playing really, really good hockey. I didn't think they were gonna take out the sharks the way they did. And on the other hand, of course, the Bruins at Boston city, just keeps winning championships in, in their top line in there, whether it's Birger on or pasternack marshawn and of course, they've got the hottest goalie in the world as well with to harass. So it's going to be a great

The Stanley Cup final between the Boston Bruins the Saint Louis blues appropriately, four days away, because the number that Bobby ORR war, and that is the iconic goal against the Saint Louis blues back in the nineteen seventies Stanley Cup finals. Now, of course, the Bruins are gonna win that series anyway. There are three games to non game goes into overtime or scores the goal, but more than just winning the couples that icon, a photo of him just flying through the air, you see the statue in front of TD garden commemorating that, and we had this discussion yesterday jet, and it was kind of to onto me and Justin penalty on one side and Christopher going on the other. So we're going to put this out to Twitter. Twitter poll at sea underscore, going be our ally. And e who is the most beloved Boston athlete is David Ortiz. Tom Brady, Bobby ORR, Larry Bird, and those the prize, Tom Brady's running. Away with this, because, again, people that were fans of Bobby ORR are older. They don't use Twitter as much as a patriot fans or Red Sox fans who Brady and Ortiz live. No excuses, just reality. The thing about is far as beloved or impactful aware of the case may be Tom Brady is phenomenal. And again, when you have these types of discussions, you have to sometimes knocked the other three candidates, which I don't really need to do here. But the thing about Bobby ORR was the sport grew because of him. I don't think the sports really grown in this area because Tom Brady they were selling games for eight years before you got here. They'll probably sell out games for eight years after he's here. He's phenomenal Tom Brady. But if we seen an uptick in quarterbacks from the New England area going on to play college football in the NFL. No, I mean with Bobby your you were building rinks here in the early. Seventies, the nineteen eighty Olympic team was called the sons of Bobby or the national TV contract was because of body or Mike Felber who's a huge hockey fan. Grew up in Wisconsin. And at the age of five or six he fell in love with sport because of Bobby ORR. And he was on the other side of the country. So that's my point with this that he had so much impact. I'm not starting to get into the debate who was better at this sport. And that's a whole other debate that I think, makes a lot of sense that I get the Brady's gonna run away with this poll. I understand that. But my point was that Bobby ORR at that time that was by far the most popular team in the city in the team that was winning. The Celtics were also winning, but they would never as popular and it was just something that it was it was more than just what they did on the ice was off the ice, their availability. They were more readily available say the patriots today because it's just different hockey players weren't making a lot of money back then they are now. I told you my dad drank, Johnny McKenzie. He was a construction worker who would drink with Johnny McKenzie who was a star player for the Bruins because they made about the same amount of money. That is my point that, Bob, your is the most beloved and impactful athlete that the city's ever had. That's my side of the discussion. Yeah, I see. All the points you're making I just disagree. I think it's, it's clearly Tom Brady. Yeah. Okay. They made selling games, but games, we're also being blacked out in this market as well. Ninety three. The patriots come more popular since Tom Brady's taken over or this popularity and the thing you're saying, okay, well, you're not seeing a whole a dearth of quarterbacks. Well, you have a couple of states hiccup Pete with that are producing far more athletes, Laura and Texas hockey constant pay, but that's not, that's not Florida and Texas and California, three biggest states in the country's app, and you're competing trying to say, well, if Tom Brady so good. New England area should be producing quarterbacks. That's just that's just illogical based on just here is relations playing high school football in the area than before Tom Brady. Played hell no rinks were being built in the late sixties and early seventies because of Bobby ORR. People started playing hockey I told you that in the late sixties early. Seventies, the Bruins were on it. You HF station channel thirty eight. So people started to get cable cities. We're bringing cable in specifically so that they could get the package to get better reception. For Bruce games. I know this sounds archaic. But again, it's it's over fifty putting against an unfair standard that Tom Brady started win. Okay, in the NFL was easily accessible to everybody top, you're supposed to do you get to put the patriots games on paper, UBS I need to prove them, more popular and Bobby ORR, but football will remain as popular without Bob. You are without Tom Brady. Not not in this city. We'll see what happens again. Maybe he Pete, these solidify the patriots as one champion is one of the top ethical market. Like I said, I don't want that going back. But wanted disparage what he's accomplished. He's phenomenal. But you do know that the New York Yankees have won twenty seven world championships Yogi Berra's one the most World Series among all the Yankees as anybody thinks that he's better than Babe Ruth Mickey Mantle or Lou Gehrig. No, no. But does anybody realistically by yours better than Wayne Gretzky or Mario Lemieux do? Oh, yeah. I just I don't buy it. Not in this area. They do those are the big three, the discussion is or Gretzky Lou and Gordy Howe. That's the big four those are the ones that finished one two, three four in every debate. And there are enough people that will say, Bobby ORR is number one, because the thing is with or he was leaving league in scoring as a defenseman. So this would be kin to having a guy beathy Cy Young award winner in oh, by the way, legally home runs. You know that's the type of player. He was he changed the game. Look, I'm not saying he wasn't great or one of the all time greats. I'm saying I think that Tom Brady was more beloved here because what people like hear more than anything else winning championships. Tom Brady is six of them. Yes, I get that. The hardest sport to win has more than all Bill Russell. And he's never been beloved again. Because I think he is now now that he's eighty five years during his playing. He wasn't the point also is that I think that look, I don't know if Tom Brady is going to stay here after he retires. I get the feeling he'll probably be in California. Bob, yours stayed here, the entire time the entire time he's still very visible very available lives on the Cape now but he comes up to Boston quite a bit my point fans really give rat's ass about the people that follow that do. They he's more approachable people, a lot of people that I can talk to people my age who think the Tom Brady is a little full of himself in a little weird. He's married to the supermodel. God bless. But he's writing books telling you how to eat how to live your life. Great. That's all. I hate to tell you this. That's professional athletes in the two thousand nineteen how many do that. How many do that who's writing books to tell you how to eat and try to hundred and fifty dollars for the recipe? There's a lot of you know, anybody that does that need. No. He's the only one who does that. But there's people who have their other agendas and stuff like that. And LeBron James three different TV shows where he's talking about. That's just that's just the age of social media Sapin. The sports is more popular now than it's ever been more popular. It wasn't a seventies. When Bob yours playing hockey was so far more popular than any other sport in this city back then, because the Red Sox had gone at that point fifty plus years without winning a world championship. Okay. And basketball is more popular than any sport in the city, I would say was for about a five year period because Larry Burton he's also on the pole, and there's people in my age group. That, that's their guy. I know guys that have tattoos Larry Bird, which I think is insane. If you put an athlete's as you're tattooed, you've got an issue. I don't know you have LeBron James. Rogers on x well by PEX. I'm just I didn't want to embarrass you. Call them boobs. I would be proud of they were ex- boobs. You're right. And I don't have any tattoos. I could not sit skill but I think it's a fascinating discussion in the name, of course, David Ortiz and even though I will die on the hill that Ted Williams is a better player than David Ortiz. And I know everybody under the age of whatever forty will say, oh, well, David Ortiz, has three titles. Ted Williams has none again, Yogi Berra has more titles than Babe Ruth, does anybody think you'll be better than Babe Ruth. Hell. No. So I do think that to an extent did also one are you could argue for any of those four guys, I really do think you can legit. I think that a lot of people in this city older, and younger, would actually take a bullet for David Ortiz. Like, that's how popular he exactly. But there's also people that got tired of talking about contracts. There's always outliers. But that sort of after the after the marathon bombing, I didn't really hear that. I'm not at all. Because you just fell in love with the guy writing he spoke for he didn't just deliver in the World Series and break the curse. And it was that the sort of unification rallying cry sleeping. He's again I in some ways, I think like in terms if you really got down to it like, oh my God. This is a guy I love and like, really represented. I think part of it he's still by the way, he sold the residence here to doesn't live here year round. But you know what? Because I don't the thing about Brady again the greatest quarterback ever. I think along with Jim Brown, the greatest football player of whatever the case may be phenomenal. He doesn't seem lovable like David Ortiz, is lovable writing's kind of, like Santa Claus. You want to hug him? He's that type of guy Bobby ORR was the guy that, you know, all the guys wanted to be like a women love them. Mothers, one of their daughters to marry him, the case at Tom Brady, people don't want to be well, or women. Yeah. He's a little weird. But you know what I think part of it also was he's so great. And he so in my mind clearly the greatest quarterback of all time there's this aura around him, too. I think it was the same thing around Michael Jordan to like. Yeah. People loved him. But when you're that great, it's almost like you're not you're not that approachable because of the winning right?.

"You know, Barbara shove and son quiz and seen I think those guys have been a difference maker. They've been much like the fourth line for the Bruins have been throughout the playoffs this year with the corral, and then company, there so of, of Louis have worn the sharks. Now, there's no question. There's a number of injuries now that we have to look out. I mean you know era from just look shot. I mean I don't know where they I mean doesn't have a full stride. He's obviously got some kind of groin or or core issue that has been a big problem for him. He's doing the best you can. But, you know, it's just, you know, I think tomorrow night, if you're playing, but all you gotta play seventy and you just have to play him on power plays. And that's it. So I don't know if that's possible. But I mean I just think it's going to be a struggle for him, Joe pavilion. If you have a hard time thinking that he's coming back after what he's been through. And then getting hit again looks like possibly can cost again yesterday I have a hard time thinking he's gonna play I have no idea. What's going to happen till Marshall, you know, he can't be played in the game for while after getting hit from Barbara shove. And then he he retired her locker room. So the only thing I will say, you know, for the San Jose, Sharks, and their defense here. Isn't they look at it? And buried after game four against the Vegas Golden Knights around one they've got some really high in players. They got the highest people their competitors. And, you know, I I I'm not gonna count him out after what I saw in that series against Vegas. 'cause they were general, it'd be in that one, but they are up against it right now because they are banged up at the Saint Louis blues are feeling now they're definitely feeling it. And if they win that game, or when there any of the next two or either the next two, then we'd have a rematch in nineteen seventy with Bobby ORR flying through the air with the game winning goal in game four and overtime.

I mean an expansion team was going to go back, then they put all the expansion teams in the same conference. So that meant an expansion team was going to go and the Scotty Bowman led blues, just we're a little ahead of everybody else. But you know so many near misses and so many great regular season teams so many disappointments in the postseason. It would be a tremendous story and even being indep. I'd last January third of this season able to go to the Stanley Cup final would be a heck of a story. Yeah, it just goes to show you that things can come together in a season for team and the arrival of Bennington, but a difference maker, you know, over the weekend, I spent the weekend in Allentown, Pennsylvania, with the USA hockey level, four coaching conference, which, you know, I was able to get my level four certificate now. So that's really good for me in terms of nice doing my youth hockey things, but through the weekend, Ryan Walter was there, the former capital and Canadian and cannot get played fifteen or so years in the league and won the Stanley Cup with the eighty six Canadians, and he told the story of that team and he said, really February of that year we said we were dysfunctional.

I know lying through the air. Pretty neat. Happy trails to a game winning home run for the Rangers Astros right fielder. Josh Riddick went over the wall to rob hundred of three run Homer and preserve a four two win for the stroz. This has been a week of over the wall catches, I there was Kevin pillar for the giants. Then Ramon Laureano to say might fires. No hitter, two nights ago. Jackie Bradley, jR, just wiped out the Orioles walk-off. But since you since you chew is on third base. I don't wanna get picky here. What tag up hunter Pence could have had a sack flight RBI? That's right. That's right down the line with the catch was made the little little thing. We're running out of show. Let's go to the big finish Frank. The dolphins reportedly make Xavi and Howard the highest paid corner in football makes sense. It's an important position.
