The ugliest hockey jersey... ever
Ahh, yes, the Boston Bruins. As my origins are from the blessed city, Montreal, I have far from fond memories about the Bruins. And, in the late 90's, as NHL teams adopted alternate jerseys, no doubt to increase merchandise sales, where Chicago, the New York Rangers, and Vancouver had aesthetically pleasing designs, Montreal and Toronto renewed some classic designs, Boston led the way with possibly the worst fashion design EVER.
It kind of justifies this mistake, doesn't it? God did our Canucks have some eyesores as uniforms in the past.
Well, to that business soon enough. As for Thursday nights game, the Bert-accu-scoreTM for the game was Vancouver 6 Edmonton 3, where the "result" that the fans had to endure was Oilers 5 Canucks 3. Hmm. How could we lose to a team that fell to the Bruins, now without former captain Joe Thornton?
One third of the way around the planet, in the English Premiership, my beloved Liverpool Reds bested Wigan 3-0. As for our consistent opponents, Chelsea, Arsenal, and Manchester United, they scored, respectively, 1, 0, and 3 goals. As for my Dawn, her Sheffield Wednesday Owls fell to crosstown rivals Sheffield United by a 1-0 mark.
So, Vancouver matched Liverpool's and Sheffield Wednesday's goal totals, giving them 3. Edmonton matched our combined opponent goal totals, giving them 5. Thus, the balanced score of the match was 5-3 favouring Edmonton, giving us...
Utter Golden PerfectionTM.
As for tonight, thankfully home teams wear dark jerseys, so Canuck fans don't have to be blinded by Winnie the Pooh. The Bert-accu-scoreTM for the game shall be
Vancouver 5 Boston 0
