More Racist Garbage in Sports: Bruins vs Canadiens and PK Subban

The Frog

BOSTON ZOO – Milan Lucic has a profile resembling an Easter Island statue.  Montreal Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien looks like The Frog, the main foil of a crime-fighting old cartoon duo called Courageous Cat and Minute Mouse.

These two are just light-hearted observations and harmless to any race, religion or creed (other than the French). But they are polar opposites to what Habs defenseman P.K. Subban, an African Canadian, had to endure on social media after netting the game-winning double overtime goal by what can only be described as Massholes in the truest form of the word.  There’s no sense in repeating the Tweets because you get the idea and that only makes the brave sissies who type these things behind a smart phone or computer feel important.

No matter how big a d-bag, coward or showboat the talented Subban is – if he’s not on your team –  it’s not an opportunity to single out his race; his playing style is evident on every roster.  Do Bruins fans think Brad Marchand is not the same type of splinter-under-a-fingernail type of player to the rest of the NHL fan base?

P.K. Subban

Cam Neely addressed the situation with the utmost of class and denounced the actions of a small amount of Bruins fan’s.  What is troubling however is this being the second time in three years of such social media behavior as the Washington Capital Joel Ward ended the Bruins season in 2012 and got treated like crap due to his race.  Willie O’Ree is the Jackie Robinson of hockey and did so in a Bruins uniform back in the 1950’s.  Anson Carter, now an analyst on various networks, is a former Bruin and Jarome Iginla, a current one, are men of color.  And the topper of it all is Malcolm Subban, a Providence Bruin and goalie for the AHL affiliate of the Boston Bruins, happens to be P.K.’s younger brother.

At times, I lose faith in man and in the wake of Donald Sterling’s recent tirade, I hope these minority of Bruins fans didn’t or don’t judge their own players on the basis of skin color.

p.s. subban vs bruins

Being a fan is supposed to be about the sweater your favorite team wears and not so much about the opponent.  Don’t turn a playoff series into a cheap, under-thought, wrestling script.  Subban’s heroics occurred in the first game of the series and as the second game proved, you’re never out of it when your favorite team shows its heart and mettle – two attributes the Twittiots (Twitter idiots) are sorely lacking.

Enjoy the games and let them breathe on their own.  Show a little class.  Don’t let the emotions of a heated rivalry turn you into a bunch of punks and Neanderthals.  There’s plenty of hockey ahead as the series is down to a best-of-five after yesterday’s exhilarating Boston comeback.  It’s not too late to clean up your own acts and conduct yourself in the appropriate manner and not like a bunch of Philadelphia sports fans on a three day prison work furlough.  Real Bruins fans are better than that and remember the words of Big Papi….

A man amongst men. Cheesy Bruin kicked cancer to the curb – twice. The Cheese Man’s a big, tough teddy-bear who survived the Bronx despite being an unabashed Boston Bruins fan and Sargent-At-Arms for Angry Ward’s Urban Spur Posse. Nuff said. Doctors have taken most of this throat and had to make him a new tongue from thigh-meat (his own) and still he won’t shut up about the Bruins, Cowboys, Pirates and Cleveland Cavaliers. And yes, his kids do love him.

    I feel embarrassed for what happened. It’s like a cousin saying stupid things that you know are wrong.

    • Cheesybruin

      Agreed. How about Chara being a +5 yesterday and the Bergeron line taking the game over in the 3rd period yesterday?

    • Junoir Blaber

      You should be embarrassed supporting those mugs from the start cause their bums

  • toby12

    C’mon are you really surprised this came out of Boston?? They are they ugliest bunch of fans outside of Philly. Tons of racists.

    • Cheesybruin

      It surprises me that it happened the same week of the Sterling fiasco, the soccer player who had bananas thrown at him, and within three years of the Joel Ward incident. When will people learn in EVERY city on this globe?

      • We have personal experience with ugly Red Sox Nation… Bombed girls calling us the C-word… #NotClowns

        • AngryWard

          The difference is, you are the “C-word.” That’s a big difference.

        • SAF

          Isn’t “NotClowns” an N word? Or the way you spelled it a hashtag word?

    • Junoir Blaber

      Exactly what that white bread said! (Assuming T12 is white for the purpose of my joke)

      Boston is long know to be the most racist city in the northeast. No need for the shocked “well of never!?!”

  • AngryWard

    Great column, Cheeseman. I was going to say something about this two days ago under the banner “Boston Wrong.” It sucks when fans of your team act like a bunch of morons and you feel the need to have to explain that you aren’t one of them. If I were a B’s fan, I would bully these cowards off of all social media with a taste of their own medicine. How about our friend Dave having Cali Chrome back in February as a 30-1 shot? Not too shabby.

    • Cheesybruin

      This is why Dave has earned the nickname “The Knish”. A $300 profit looks like a million to me. We need to get him writing for the site around Triple Crown and Breeders Cup races.
      It is sad that I have to address the Subban thing and not that monster comeback of a Bruins victory yesterday. What made the win orgasmic was the referees officiating the game like Montreal is the only Canadian team in the playoffs.

      • Cheesy – we agree with A-Dubya; great column… But there will be NO horse racing articles on this site. You gotta a better shot at seeing a soccer story.

        • jgclancy

          Maybe a look back at a day at the races In Memoriam for poor Karma Shield? And how are we supposed to plan a day at Belmont without horse talk?? A little give and take on betting exactas/trifecta/quintells and whether picking horses by name or colors is better.
          I mean if we can talk about a niche sport like hockey ad nauseum (or God forbid rugby) why not the ponies? After all – who didn’t want a pony as a kid? Why it’s a slap in the face to immigrants everywhere that had ponies as kids.
          Go A’s!

        • Cheesybruin

          I’ll handle this one Clancy…
          What’s soccer?

        • SAF

          Where is Alexander what’s his name Johnson when you need him? The sport of kings not welcome on this site?!? You are a bunch of queens MtM, and those Red Sox Nation Bombed Girls were right!

          • jgclancy

            I think I hear Belmont calling you SAF!

  • AngryWard

    Oh, and can we get a Courageous Cat clip up here today? That would be great.

    • Minute Mouse couldn’t carry Danger Mouse’s cleats.

      • jgclancy

        Speedy Gonzalez could run rings around both them!

  • jgclancy

    Oh those Mets!

    • We told Buffalo Joe and Big Al Sternberg that the wheels would come off in Denver and guess what? The Mets’ bus in screeching on its rims. This is on Alderson and his 83 million dollar budget.

      • Cheesybruin

        Roughly a little better than a million dollars per win predicted by Real Sandy Alderson.

        • AngryWard

          I still have faith in the Mets, even if I did run my Beat the Streak number to 17 last night picking Charlie Blackmon.

  • Cheesybruin
  • Junoir Blaber

    I am not surprised Subban’s baby bro is a goalie. Reminds of another black Canadian goalie Kevin Weekes. His family is from Barbados and Weekes played for the Rangers for a couple of season. Weekes said he learned to be a goalie after being stuck there by his brothers as the practices shooting. I can see PK firing at Mal for practice.

    Also Iginla is one of my favorite players of all time. Gotta love a guy that is as comfortable scoring goals as he is checking and dropping the gloves. No bodyguard needed.

    This makes me root for Les Habs even more. Hopefully than bounce back from yesterday’s choke job

    • This unfortunate incident gives us another excuse to root for a Bruins early exit… And no, we don’t apologize for our shallow, selfish view.

  • Dude

    Is anyone surprised by this? Boston is a town where a white guy got away with killing his wife by just saying some
    Black guy did it. Classless town. These are representative of boston fans. Sorry cheesy. Boston sucks, stay classy you bigoted idiots.

    • AngryWard

      They’re also big on the whole “black guy ate my homework” excuse. But, seriously, are other cities without sin when it comes to racism? I think not.

  • DJ Eberle

    The city of Boston should be embarrassed. The worst part of this is this has happened before; back in 2012 when Joel Ward scored the game winner to knocked the Bruins out of the playoffs. It’s terrible.

  • SAF

    Cheesy, great article, but I think that it was their upbringing by their punk neanderthal parents that turned them into punk neanderthals, not the emotions of a heated rivalry.

  • SAF

    The difference between Philly and Boston? In Philly they hate everyone.

    • GrindingAxWalter

      The difference is that in Boston, the cheesesteak sucks and the teams don’ philly, the cheese steaks are good but their sports suck…
