Ugh, i hate hearing stuff like this. like when espn uses events like the bombings into sports. like if the celtics would've won their series, it would've all been like "the celtics won it for the bombing victims."
i don't wanna sound insensitive but do you honestly think that winning hockey games could make the victims of a bombing feel better?
Agreed. Not that I'm rooting *against* the Bruins, but this whole "tragedy bandwagon" thing is getting really old, really fast. And speaking as a Red Sox fan, we've already got way too many bandwagoners, we sure don't need any more.
And when did that start, BTW? Because I don't remember a nationwide pull for the Yankees in 2001, though I do remember being surprised that it wasn't happening. I suppose it would have turned out that way had they won, though. And it's a good thing it wasn't turned the other way around, that people who were rooting for the Diamondbacks (like me) weren't called traitors or terrorists or anything like that.
