Author's note: There are spoilers, though it's not like there's anything ground breaking. If you want to go into the show completely unaware of what happens, you should probably stop here. Also, you can catch the first episode here.
So tonight NESN debuted "Behind the B", a 24/7-eqsue show that grants people an inside look into the Boston Bruins organization. The show ran for an hour and was narrated by Dennis Leary. I want to apologize to everyone for not having a live stream as I'm still learning how to stream from my TV. I also contemplated and toyed with the idea of having a live webcast while I watched the show and looking back, I'm glad it didn't happen.
The initial reason for me not setting up a live webcast was my run went longer than I expected. I'm actually surprised I didn't break my ankle running at night because I can barely see down the hall at night. Anyway, I watched the first half of the show and actually turned it off around Milan Lucic's part because I was bored.
If you've watched HBO's 24/7 or Hard Knocks, you get the gist of this show. It's supposed to give you an inside look that not many of us are lucky to see and while there were some pretty great parts (front office talking about whether to trade Tyler Seguin, John Whitesides giving the rookies the business) - most of it seemed to be filler with player profiles which are so. fucking. boring.
And that's where a lot of this fell flat for me.
