The Bruins defenseman talked to Stuff Boston about his season ending injury during the playoffs when he ruptured his spleen during the Bruins/Habs series. Hunwick’s photo features the war wound he received during the Bruins battle for the Stanley Cup and it’s also more proof that scars are hot.

SO if you haven’t heard already, WFNX is going thru some changes and decided to let go two members of their successful morning show, The Sandbox. After a revolving door of morning shows over the years, ‘FNX had finally found one that clicked with its audience and they decided to fuck up a great thing they had going. The new morning show will consist of FNX Program Director, Keith Dankin, FNX Living Legend & Super’Fro owner, Henry Santoro and Fletcher from The Sandbox. No offense to Mr. Dankin & Harvey Firestein voice, but it’s not the same.
The new lineup, which will start Tuesday morning(1/6/2010), was announced on FMBQ and have caused quite an uproar with the fans of the show. The fans voiced their outrage via twitter & emails to the station and few have already started a movement to get Charlie & Special Ed‘s jobs back . Some have also called for a boycott of FNX. *flips on my XM radio*
Personally, I was shocked this morning when I heard the news and really upset by the decision of management. If it wasn’t for The Sandbox we wouldn’t know about the Kraken(and how it doesn’t seem to like ESPN’s Chris Forsberg), we wouldn’t know the importance of 45 or how to prevent a fatty liver or why they call Boston Bruin, Andrew Firefly Ference, ‘The Package’. The Sandbox clicked with the fans, they were loyal to the fans and the fans appreciated that the most.
Shit, do you know how much free advertising they gave my ass? Do you know how many people tell me they found out about me because of The Sandbox? If it wasn’t for The Sandbox, I wouldn’t have my title – ‘Super Blogger, Cameron Frye’(Thanks, Charlie!) and I’d just be some obnoxious,mouthy broad who blogs about hockey & tweets about pedos. Thanks for everything, boys. I mean it.

I’ve been hung up with the holiday season and passed out last night. Which means, I missed the Bruins win. If me turning into old person equals a Bruins win, I’ll be fine with that.
Last night also saw the return of Dennis Wideman. He ended the night +2 and had 2 shot on goal. So he’s pacing himself – but hopefully the time off helped the lad. Anyways, we can’t mention Wideman without doing another installment of my favorite series(favorite because it fills space and some people are oddly amused by it), Animals That Skate Better Than Wideman.
In the fourth part of our series, today we give you SNOOPY! Ok, so he’s a two-dimensional animal – but who doesn’t love Snoopy(besides Lucy)? If you learn anything from the video, it’s that he’s a pretty, damn good hockey player and ready to scrap when needed. Maybe the Bruins should give him a try out, he can’t be any worse than Ference.
Now personally, I think it’s a work of art and the ‘Thug Life’-esque Owl City tattoo is what makes the picture a classic. Well, Fancy Pants Ference wasn’t a fan and felt it was too femme.
Cut to this morning and Special Ed just released the latest picture of the proposed Firefly Ference t-shirt.
Now, here’s my only issue with the new one. Andy either has elephantiasis of the nuts OR he has a colostomy bag.
So which one would you buy?
Somewhere the The Sandbox is proud….
So for those of you who may or may not know, The Sandbox on FNX has given Andrew ‘The Package’ Ference, a new nickname. After expressing his dislike for Owl City’s hit single, ‘Fireflies’ - Special Ed decided to take it upon himself and start a campaign to call Andrew, ‘The Firefly’. Hence the artwork he came up with a couple weeks ago.
BTW, whoever did the musical intro to Ference’s segment is genius. ANYWAYS, so this morning, The Sandbox tried to get him to sign off on the image so WFNX can start producing shirts. Ference tried to weasel his way out of it and mentioned that Lucic shirts are covered in blood and he’ll have a shirt featuring ‘fairy wings’.
Now, Andy(can I call you Andy?), you’re missing an amazing opportunity to raise money for charity and by charity I don’t mean saving Special Ed’s fatty liver, skating lessons for Wideman or a bubble to keep Looch in – so he doesn’t get hurt.
Why not have FNX sell the shirt and have part of the proceeds go to a charity close to you? Perhaps The David Suzuki Foundation or The New England Grassroots Enviroment Fund or maybe you want to save the baby seals? I mean honestly, how can you say ‘NO’ to this?
So Andy, man up and let The Sandbox sell Firefly Ference shirts – I know an assload of ladies would buy them and how cool would it be to see a sea of Firefly shirts at a game? And if you want a Firefly Ference shirt – tell Andrew next time you see him….
Another bites the dust on Causeway Street, after 11 years with the black & gold, PJ Axelsson has bit adieu to Boston. Axelsson signed a four year contract with the Frölunda Hockey Club.
Axelsson, who played for Frölunda during the lock out, was quoted as saying, “I’ve always wanted to come back here.” Good luck, bro. Thanks to The Hockey Blog Adventure for the scoop.
While one door closes, an one opens. Not too long after Aaron Ward was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes, rumors started to pop up about free agent, Derek Morris, signing with the Bruins and low and behold it happened.
Morris, who finished the season in New York after being traded by the Coyotes, has played 793 games, scored 76 goals and has 264 assists. Morris started off his career in Calgary, where he spent five years there and during that time period, played with Chuck Kobasew, Andrew Ference, Marc Savard & Steve Begin.
Yeah, so – I didn't see that happening. But then again, I should be use to disappointment. I am from Boston. Anyways, I've gone through the death stages already and I'm pretty much over it. I've done my best Rupert Pupkin and wished Cancer upon Scott Walker, I got teary eyed and had a boo-hoo, I've denied the goal was even scored and tried to convince myself that due to terrorist activities in the United State – Gary Bettman canceled the playoffs and we'll take it up next year.
But it did. So now what? Will I watch the rest of The Stanley Cup Playoffs? Probably. But I swear, if it's another Pittsburgh/Detroit series – I'm going to throw my tv out the window. I'm tired and over the same teams getting in the finals. No one wants to see that! My only hope is that The Chicago Blackhawks make it and win it all.
There's still the Red Sox. *snore* Baseball is getting painful for me to watch and the games are just a snoozefest. I'll save you from the David Ortiz rant. Listen, it was bound to happen one day. Whether we want to admit it or not, he is human.
Celtics? *eye roll* I'm over them. I was a big C's fans when I was a kid, but I have no emotional attachment to the team anymore. Well other than for Big Baby Davis. But somethings are left unsaid. So godspeed to them.
So what am I going to do? How am I going to distract myself? I'm going to watch The Memorial Cup ! The Cup starts tonight in Canada and thank GOD, the NHL Network is airing it. So if you live in one of the 16 houses that gets the NHL Network, cheers to you! You're in luck! Go Windsor Spitfires! Plus The Providence Bruins are taking on the Hershey Bearsin the Eastern Conference Finals. So you can go heckle Simeon Varlamov, I know I will and maybe if we're lucky, Vladimir Sobotka will stab someone with their skate.
This is it, people. Game seven! Someone is going to be setting up tee times tomorrow and while the other will be prepping to play the Penguins. The momentum has shifted and the B's have won the last two games. So this will be easy, right? Who knows.
But after the performance we got during Game 6, I'm thinking the people in Boston are going to be very happy tonight. I cannot wait for the game – it's going to be amazing! I could say more, but it's already been said. We all know what they need to do.
LET'S GO B'S!!!
Mike Wendt made this great video – add him on Twitter!
If the Bruins needed another reason to win – do it for Mikey!
By the way, congrats to the Pittsburgh Penguins who demolished the Washington Capitals last night! I recommendy you watch the video Puck Daddy, Greg Wyshynski, did. Mike Green was just not having it when it came to the handshake. I guess that's what happens when you get pulled in the third period for playing like crap. At least he has his sack to come home to.
