What an amazing year to be a Bruins fan!

Day 16 of the sports fan challenge is obviously dedicated to the Boston Bruins 2011 Stanley Cup Champions!  What a ride through the playoffs it was, an amazing experience.  For those of you that don;t know I am originally from Australia but I have lived in Boston for 13 years (the only US city I have ever lived in) and I have grown to love this city and it's sporting teams as if I have lived here all my life.  I am a firm believer of supporting your home town sports teams.  This year I was lucky enough to have a share of season tickets and went to 12 regular season games, 3 playoff games and a Stanley Cup final game.  I feel very happy for my wife's family particularly her father, and her uncles some of who have been fans for over 60 years!  We had so many great memories throughout the year, going to games, watching games together, talking about the Bruins at family parties.  A part of me is relieved that it is all over and the Bruins won but another part of me is sad that it has come to an end.  But it was an amazing season, one I will never forget and as a true sports fan one I will never forget!

To celebrate a great season here are a few photos from games this year (sorry for the quality of some I was so fired up at times I was shaking)
