Saw this on

There was a hard-to-miss sports theme in the town of Franklin's July 4th parade. Yes, that was Franklin native Peter Laviolette holding the Stanley Cup as the parade rolled through town.

Laviolette is the head coach of the Carolina Hurricanes, who won the NHL's prized trophy in 2005-2006.

So now Ray Bourque brought the Stanley Cup to Boston as a member of the Colorado Avalanche and Laviolette brings it to Massachusetts as coach of the Hurricanes.

Personally, I'm going to wait until the Boston Bruins bring one home before I get very excited about it. It's been 34 years since the B's last Stanley Cub win behind Bobby Orr and the Big Bad Bruins back in 1972.

Of course, if new GM Peter Chiarelli and new coach Dave Lewis can't improve the Bruins recent fortunes, 1972 may become the new 1918.

By the way, why does Lewis look so pissed off in every single picture I see of the guy? Some of the articles I have read describe him as easy going, but the pictures I have seen make him look like someone just ran over his dog.

Yes, this was a Bruins post! Don't expect to see another one for quite a while.
