Opinion editorial by WBZ NewsRadio political analyst Jon Keller
BOSTON ( WBZ NewsRadio) — Watching Republican Party Chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel insist on national TV that the solemn commemorations of the 75th anniversary of D-Day were “the time when we should be celebrating our president” reminded me of an ancient truth – you’ll never get something you want, no matter how far-fetched it is, if you don’t ask for it.
So I’m emboldened by Ms. McDaniel – Mitt Romney’s niece, did you know that? - to ask for a few things on behalf of all sports-loving Bostonians.
After all, our incredible run of titles here has made us great again, and when you’re great, you should be catered too, as Ronna says.
You know how electric this city is during our annual playoff runs.
So going forward, I’d like for all post-season games of our Boston teams to be played at home, in order to maximize the fun.
If this proves frustrating to fans of the other teams, they can move to New England, become blow-in Boston sports fans, and find redemption that way.
Also, appropriate punishment of floppers like the St. Louis Blues should be arranged.
They should be dragged out during intermission and walked into a pizza joint booth across the street where they will be forced to receive a mouthful from Bruins fans but not be allowed to eat a slice.
Instead of torturing fans by making them take the train into Boston, I want the players to ride the trains on a slow-motion crawl around Eastern Mass., so we can celebrate them from our cars.
And I want the Cup.
We all want it.
And we should have it.
Because it’s ours.
