Days of Y’Orr is a completely, 100% biased blog about the NHL and the Boston Bruins. We think Shawn Thornton is the third greatest NHL player of all time (behind Lemieux and Orr), sympathize with Joe Thornton and do Renee Rancourt fistpumps during even the most pedestrian of accomplishments. We are still bitter towards Ulf Samuellson and have shrines to Cam Neely. We love Ray Bourque, but refuse to support those half Bruins, half Avalanche jerseys people wear.
We have no love for Gary Bettman and think people need to leave Sidney Crosby alone. We are still not over what the Jacobs family has done to this once great franchise. We celebrate the 9th of every month as “The Chief” day, think Ed Johnston is the most under-rated back up goalie of all time and wish Terry O’Reilly had won a scoring title just for funsies. We are crude, opinionated, often wrong and hate when people yell shoot at games. We think Section 306, Row 15 is the best place to be at the TD Garden.
We have a huge man crush on Johnny Boychuk and have long, involved conversations on whether or not Andrew Ference has the ability to please his wife with his always wonky groin. We hate it when people wear Celtics, Red Sox or Patriots gear to a Bruins game. We know you’re in Boston, but it’s a hockey game assholes.
We also hate it when people wear a jersey of a team that isn’t even playing. Unless it is a Whalers jersey. Long live the Whale. We want to have dinner with Shawn Thornton, even though we know we would then be immediately traded to Edmonton.
Playoff hockey is the reason we get up in the morning and we swear we haven’t booed Dennis Wideman once this season (mostly ’cause he’s in Floriday getting a tan now).
We have absolutely no affiliation with the Boston Bruins or the NHL and are not supported by either. We are simply a fan run blog supporting our favorite team in a (sometimes) humorous manner. However if you work for the Bruins, we’d love some game used sticks and a Claude Julien autograph.

“Someone seriously needs to check the grave sites of Mark Twain and Ernest Hemmingway because the quality of this blog is incredible. I’m pretty sure the DOY staff dug those two up and smoked them like Method Man & Redman in How High. What else would explain a hockey blog being this good? ” — Chris Riesbeck
