A proud Bruins’ fan just loves hockey

letter

The last time I checked I lived in Canada, a country where I am free to make my own choices.

I am a Boston Bruins’ fan and as such have been proudly wearing my jersey to work on game days. Apparently doing so has upset many people and they have taken it upon themselves to voice their opinions on my choice of team.

I know some people have made their comments in jest, but most are quite serious in their disgust for my jersey.

I am not betraying my country by being a Bruins’ fan despite being told many times that I have done so. I have had customers take their groceries to another till and yet another tell me they were so angry with me that they couldn’t even look at me because they were going to say something that could not be repeated.

Not everyone is a Canucks fan. I have not made any mean spirited comments to those who are. All I can say is get over it, grow up and get a life! Just take a step back and enjoy Canada’s game.
