As you are well aware, around here, we get our kicks from celebrating sports history and the players and teams that make it. But, we might, however, enjoy just a little bit more…watching history be made. Having said that, we are holding our breath in anticipation for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals between the Boston Bruins and Philadelphia Flyers tonight in Boston.
If the Flyers come out on top, they will become just the fourth professional sports team to come back from a 3-0 series deficit and win a 7-game series. Should this feat occur, they will join the 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs, the 1975 New York Islanders and the 2004 Boston Red Sox .
So, the question is…will Mitchell & Ness bloggers be writing about ‘this date in history’ 10, 15 or 20 years from now? We sure hope so.
What do you think?
