Tickets for Cuts for a Cause On Sale NOW!

"I thought they were only going to take a little off the top?"

 Tickets are on sale for 3rd annual Cuts for a Cause(don’t believe what the site says – it’s the 3rd one). Toucher & Rich from 98.5 The Sports Hub join up with the Bruins and shed some hair for a great cause.  All of the money raised goes to the Mass General Hospital for Children and will benefit pediatric cancer research

This year’s event is will be @ Ned Devines on March 31st and it’s a blast.  Don’t believe me? Here’s the link to my pictures from last year’s event to get you excited. It’s a great chance to meet the players, make fun of Adolfo(which is always a good time) and raise money for a great cause. Toucher & Rich should have the info on how to bid for the chance to shave someone’s head soon! Tickets are just $10 and you can purchase them by calling 617-746-5140. 

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to make this year. I’ll be still in the hospital, so take tons of pictures for moi.  Oh yeah, if someone wants to make a “Where’s Cameron?” sign and take pictures of the players holding it & get it signed for moi – I’ll be your best friend! haha 

If you don’t go, Freddy T will be sad. 



Matt Cooke Won’t Fight Shawn Thornton

Well, folks – tonight’s the night. It’s been 11 days since Matt Cooke’s cheap shot on Marc Savard and the Pittsburgh Penguins will take on the Boston Bruins at the TD Garden.  All eyes are on Boston. It’s only fitting that today was Shawn Thornton’s weekly appearance on Toucher & Rich on 98.5 The Sports Hub this morning.

Thornton said he was well aware that the world was watching tonight and was asked what he thought about the whole situation. “If he was suspended a couple games – it would probably be over.”

The radio hosts mentioned that NHL Disciplinarian, Colin Campbell, will be present for tonight’s game and plans on  speaking to both teams prior to the game.

“I hope it’s a 2-way conversation.”

The  players on both teams should be allowed to speak their mind with Campbell and if they don’t feel comfortable speaking to him in a group setting, there should be an opportunity to speak their minds privately. We’ve all seen the effects concussions have on people. Thornton mentioned that one his best friends had to retire from the game because of concussions.

Pretty much every Bruins fan out there wants Cooke’s head and is expecting his blood on the ice at some point in the game. Fred Toucher asked if Cooke would fight, Thornton responded, “Depends on who it is.” Thornton went on to talk about Cooke’s history of turtling when he knew he couldn’t win.

Toucher followed that question up by asking Shawn if Matt Cooke would fight him. “No.”  Classy. Matt Cooke is a puss.

Mike Wendt(DJ/Bruins Blogger) posted this video earlier this morning and for those of you who need to be reminded on how much of a scumbag Matt Cooke is, I recommend you watch it.

Video c/o Hockey Web Cast – amazing work, guys!

If you want to hear the entire Thornton interview, head on over to the Toucher & Rich section of 98.5 The Sports Hub – it should be up later on today. *EDIT* Here’s today’s podcast featuring the interview with Shawn Thornton.
