First of all, hey ESPN, nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnope:

Next time try: "McIroy wins U.S. Open." It won't affect your traffic one bit, I promise.
Second of all, hey Simmons, thanks for further reinforcing a stereotype:
Orr resonated with locals in a way Bill Russell never could; as my father explained later, you stayed home to watch him.
Orr was amazing. So was Russell- he's one of the top 10 players of all time. But as Bill's supergenius dad notes, you stayed home to watch Orr (what an utterly unprofound and useless distinction) because (subtext) he was white.
My father was one of those loyal saps. His wanted to see the Bruins hoist the Cup one more time and assumed it would never happen because, you know, it was the Bruins.
God, I know! I can't believe the suffering finally ended! That was only Boston's 6th Cup ever! And only the city's 7th championship in the last decade!
/sees that Vancouver, Saint Louis, Buffalo, Ottowa, and Minnesota (split between two franchises) have never won a Cup and that Toronto hasn't won one since 1967
Go eat a barrel of moldy dicks, Boston.
