Might have been talked about already but if so I missed it but Dino BBQ and Edison Ale House both permanently closed. Personally I wasn't a fan of either so I'm hoping better things come along but I'd imagine those places will eventually be filled once events are for sure going again since they are prime locations. 

I thought that Dino BBQ was ok.  I admit it, since my daughter goes with me most of the time, I rarely go to any of the bars or restaurants before or after the games…since we’ve been getting loft seats most of the time (well, way back in 2019-20 anyway), we get there early, have some buffet, then watch the game (and usually go up again for food during the first intermission).  That may change this season…really depends if the lofts will have the buffet again.  I do like the idea of trying some of the local restaurants with her though…and trying different viewpoints around the arena.

Edison was the first there to have a legit beer selection, so gotta give props for bringing that to the area.  But it felt like as the years went on, the prices climbed all the way up to stadium beer prices so I stopped going.  Redd's has an equal if not better beer list so I won't miss Edison, hopefully interesting goes in there.  Not like that dump PJ Ryan's.  What a joke that place is.

I’ve only been to Prudential Center twice, but we tried Dino BBQ the first time, and I thought it was awful. Mediocre food, and terrible service. My wife was super disappointed since she really liked the one she went to in upstate NY when she was in the army. 

We went to one of those bars that are in the alley right next door on the second trip, but for the life of me I can’t remember which one. Think we just got an appetizer and drinks that time. Wonder if was Edison…

I believe the original is in Syracuse, I’m not sure that’s the one she went to (but if it is, I suspect she was in Fort Drum). People I know who have been to both say its like two completely different places.

Yep. And yeah, that’s basically what she said.

My parents have a cottage about 90 minutes from there, we used to go to some events at Fort Drum in the summer.

I still hate Avery with a passion even after all this time, but there’s a huge difference between his antics, and simply hating Subban for being really good. Or for other reasons…

Idk, it’s hard for me to give Boston fans the benefit of the doubt on this. I’ve just heard too much sh!t over the years. 

There's definitely other reasons. Not sure why so many people refuse to believe EVERYTHING coaches, teammates, ex-teammates, players around the league ALL said about Subban during his time in MTL. Plus multiple video evidences. These are not "rumours", these are ALL people working directly with him every day and calling him out publicly on his sh!t. I truly don't understand why people keep putting their head in the sand about this.

So you've heard many justifications supporting both sides of this argument, you just decide to believe one and not the other it appears.

Obviously that's not to say there's no racist fans in boston, there's probably racist fans all around the league here and there. But to sit there and say that any hate towards Subban is unjustified or purely based on skin colour, like the guy never did things to piss other people off is just non-sense to me. Player on his OWN TEAM couldn't stand him and hated him lie Gallagher. How is it that hard to believe players on other team could? lol

Has anyone heard when camp starts? Fitz said they are doing a much smaller one than usual due to Covid but they are still going to play in the prospects tournament. 

They were saying September 22nd previously when they league announced the original start dates to the season. I think they are going for shorter times and smaller camps like you said so the 22nd makes sense considering the first preseason game is on the 29th.

I figured to place this here.  Looks like the top 10 nominees for the PA announcer position was posted and fans get to choose the 3 finalists who will each do a preseason game where it will be decided who gets the job.  I can imagine this took almost 2 weeks longer than they promised due to the number of applications.

FWIW I voted for:

Aaron

Joseph

Mike

Edit: if there was an option for a 4th I would have also included Ryan.

Are these regular people with no experience? If so, wouldnt the team want someone who has done this kind of thing before? This isn’t American Idol.

Some have some experience while others have zip.  Two of the guys I voted for have some sort of experience in PA announcing or announcing in general (radio, DJing, etc).

If you watch all the audition videos it is pretty easy to spot who has experience versus those who do not.

There exists no limit to which this website will complain about sh!t. 

EDIT: Lmao they literally list their credentials before their audition. You couldn't even watch it before trying to be edgy.

There's a lot of awful ones in this top 10, gotta be so many other horrible entries to pick some of these as the top 10 lol

Really don't give a sh!t who wins though. 

Yeah, gotta be honest, I really don’t care.
