    Don't tell me it hadn't crossed your mind, at least as an adult

    Stanley Cup sustained damage during the parade.

    Gruesome. Was killing him supposed to get Pantera back together?

    I think somebody jumped up and stabbed him. Really tragic and bizarre

    Isn't Dimebag the one who got stabbed? Nothing involving Eddie Belfour would surprise me. When Michael Ryder took the Cup back to Newfoundland a couple of years ago, the table it was sitting on collapsed, causing some big dents in the Cup. And poor Nathan Horton had a whole parade set up in his hometown in Canada, but the Cup got delayed and didn't make it in time. He got a day with it later on, but the parade was just a parade for him, not for the Cup. I think it got stuck in Europe or something. The Pens swam with it in Mario Lemieux's pool a few years back. I think it fell off of a motorcycle when one of the Rangers had it after '94. And, of course, I kissed it in Medford after the Bruins won it. And my son reached out and grabbed it.

    What's the story behind that, other than the fact that no city where ice almost never forms naturally should ever win the Cup?

    Superb. I remember seeing boobies for the first time down in South Padre or maybe in California. I can't remember. It was on a beach, anyway, and I was a young teen. Some girl was out in a bikini and a huge wave came and whipped off her top. Superb viewing as I was standing in front of her facing backward looking toward the beach. I got a good look at some saltwater bouncies. Her boyfriend eventually came and swept her away, but I think even he wanted to gawk for a few seconds

    Hahaha, tremendous. Just imagine what would have happened in Boston had won and it would have been in close proximity to Aaron Hernandez

    SWEEEEEEEET Do tell. They weren't your mom's, were they?

    Yeah, thanks for that. Actually, Arizona was great. The events around the game itself were awful

    I took Meyers-Briggs years ago, but I can't remember what I got. I think maybe a C+ or B-. Respectable

    All of this is true, but part of my reverence for the RB comes from the fact that, strictly as an event and aside from the game itself, the Fiesta Bowl really sucked by comparison the year before. Absolute night and day

    I'm not sure, but I remember that the press reaction to us out there in general was extremely positive at the time

    Absolutely. Just brilliant all the way around

    Generally speaking, that's true. It's a bit like American soccer fans. Small fan bases make for tight-knit fans. I wouldn't want to be a Montreal or maybe Philly or Rangers fan at the Garden on game night, though. But I don't think there's any antipathy here toward Chicago, even after the Cup loss. There's plenty of leftover hatred for Vancouver, though.

    Nice letter, obviously written by somebody who has never actually been to a Bruins game. But nice. I like Chicago and the Blackhawks organization. Great franchise and a great city. That was part of the Bruins' problem, actually, not enough hatred between the two teams. It was the same against Toronto. If the B's make the finals again, I hope they get Vancouver again. Now that franchise and city were easy to hate

    What will happen when he sees that his stuff is gone? Will he even know?

    I became a Boston fan in 1993. I moved to Boston in 1997. Nothing happened. I moved to Paris in 2001. While I was in Europe, the Pats (3) and Red Sox (1) won championships. Since I've been back, the Red Sox (1), Celtics (1) and Bruins (1) have won championships. The only parade I attended was the Bruins' parade. It was also the only championship I really cared about, although it would have been nice to see the Pats win at least one of the Super Bowls they lost to the Giants. The Pats are the only Boston team other the the Revs that hasn't won a title in the time I've been living here. Considering Boston went title-less completely between 1986 and 2001, I've been very fortunate

    Jerry van Dyke turned down roles? Was he that much in demand?

    Go see that Cup, GFW, of you haven't before. It's a spiritual experience

    I couldn't get into the museum when I went. We have friends in Lawrence and Manhattan, though, so I suspect we'll be back at some point
