Didn't your "Red Sox" hat have a "B" on the front?  Could it count for 
the Bruins, too?

Wednesday morning NECN had a feature on the origin of the Stanley Cup.  
It was begun by Lord Stanley of Preston, who was Governor General of 
Canada in the 1890s.  This motivated me on Wednesday evening to look up 
Stanley Cup on Wikipedia.  I immediately noticed the sidebar entry 
"Current Holder" Boston Bruins."  And that was how I learned that the 
Bruins had won.  As it turns out, I was listening to CBC Radio One on my 
computer (I've listened to CBC stations from time to time ever since I 
discovered them on my radio back in high school).  They broke in with 
the news a few moments later.  One of the interesting things they said 
was that the Bruins team had more Canadians than the Canucks.
