Boston Bruins – Gold Star of the Day

I am excited to see the Bruins are finally reaching out to the community and its fans.

Bruins individual game tickets go on sale Thursday, September 14th at 11:00 a.m. and are available at all Ticketmaster outlets, online through Ticketmaster, by calling (617)-624-BEAR and at the TD Banknorth Garden Box Office (located on the West Side of North Station platform, to the right of the Bruins Pro Shop). Several members of the Bruins will be available to sign autographs throughout the day.

The autograph schedule will be as follows:
11:00-1:00 p.m.: Terry O'Reilly
2:00-3:00 p.m.: Marco Sturm, Zdeno Chara and P.J. Axelsson
3:00-4:00 p.m.: Patrice Bergeron, Brad Boyes and Marc Savard
4:00-5:00 p.m.: Hannu Toivonen and Tim Thomas
5:00-6:00 p.m.: Dave Lewis

This is a decent group of players to have at a signing. I am also impressed Dave Lewis, the new coach, was willing to put himself in front of the Bruins faithful. They are going to be asking him a lot of random questions.

Since a plethora of the Bruins players are new, management MUST get the team out into the city and the surrounding communities so fans can put a name with a face. If Boston sports fans can’t see the players are human and can’t find a way to connect with them, then the team is in for another long year.

They may still have a strong showing of support at games, but the team, as well as the league, needs to do something about the television audience. It was morbid last year.
