Bruins Fans Continue to be Awful Human Beings

Ever since ESPN The Magazine ran this cover, things haven’t gone so well in Beantown. First the Red Sox collapsed, then fired their coach, then got caught up in this weird beer drinking controversy. Now the Bruins have lost three of their first four home games after raising their Stanley Cup banner in an extravagant clusterfuck of obnoxious accents and glad-handing.

Last night, the underratedly awful Boston folks had a problem with the myriad penalties called against their team in the third period. So, naturally, they littered the ice with trash, including what appears to be an empty booze bottle. You stay classy, Titletown. 

As you know, because the national media is mostly lazy, Philly fans are usually the ones who get a bad rap for doing stuff like this. However, I’m not sure I can recall the last time bottles were thrown on the ice here. Sure, we threw some rally towels and paper cups on the warning track after Ryan Howard’s Achilles ripped its way in the offseason, but that was nothing compared to this. [It's also exactly a year to the day since our other northern friends, Yankees fans, tossed bottles into the Rangers bullpen as Cliff Lee urinated excellence all over the Bronx.]

Oh, and there were these guys, who hopped on the ice last year. And back in 2010, Bruins fans tossed condoms at our man Adam. Boston!

    Dont forget about the fan in 2008 who urinated on other fans at the arean (worse than pukemon kid, but not by much)
    And the girl who destroyed the bathroom at TD Garden 2 years ago

    What about the girl who kicked a hole in the bathroom wall at a Bruins game. And then her dumb ass friend videotaped it and uploaded it to youtube?
    that was classic

    How did a Crown Royal bottle make it to the ice and NOT BREAK…What do they put in their glass in Canada…

    Lester musta really been tanked. According to him, the beer drinking wasn’t a factor; “To be honest, we were doing the same things all season when we had the best record in baseball.”
    Hmmmmm…..coulda swore that title was otherwise reserved for, well, the team with the best record in baseball.

    I went up to Toronto for the Phils series this summer and they littered the field too when Jon Rauch flipped shit on that umpire..if it doesn’t happen here then it goes unnoticed

    I can’t believe a bunch of degenerate Philadelphians would go up there, dress up as Bruins fans, and act like a bunch of idiots. Almost as bad as the time some Philadelphians went to LA disguised as Dodgers fans and nearly killed that Giants fan a few months ago, or the time the Philly fans bombed Pearl Harbor. Despicable.

    @Matt – It doesn’t go unnoticed. It goes unreported, and if it is reported it’s referred to as “Fans having a Philly Moment”. Like Kyle said, lazy reporters rehashing history instead of doing their jobs.

    Eh, it’s one of those plastic bottles for cheap-arsed swill that normally isn’t fit to be stocked on the bottom shelf; Except in Boston it’ll be found on the top shelf.

    We did throw a smoke bomb on the ice though.. just to be fair, but Fuck Boston anyway..

    Beach House, definitely, for a splurge dinner. Food is pretty good but view is AMAZING. Book at sunset (whenever that is, it’s worth it for the view).
