This morning we saw long-time DOY reader @lisa617 tweet a link of Andrew Ference and the You Can Play Project:Ference continuing to be a beast and the Tea Party's worst nightmare.

Six current members of the Bruins have left the country to play professional hockey elsewhere. Patrice Bergeron could be the seventh as he decides the next move of his career. Bergeron has remained relatively quiet regarding his lockout plans, but according to the French sports network RDS, the forward had been involved in serious negotiations with a Swiss club and was very close...
Kelly Reeves remembers it vividly.
"The postseason was just a unreal; that ride," Reeves, the 6-foot UCLA outside hitter said, wistfully.
Her eyes light up as she continues talking about the magical postseason run that the UCLA women's volleyball team went on last season that culminated in a 3-1 defeat of Illinois to win the 2011 NCAA Championship.

The true ramifications of the NHL lockout have set in for most hockey fans, but that doesn’t make watching their favorite players move overseas any easier. Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask has been officially signed to a contract in Europe. According to ESPN, the 25 year old Finnish star will play for HC Plzen, and joins teammate Andrew Ference as the second Bruin to commit to a Czech...
Professional sports teams will go to extraordinary lengths to market themselves with everything from ridiculous hats to Snuggies bearing their logo. The NHL may have reached a new low, however, with their latest officially licensed product: gnomes. The NHL's line of team-themed collectibles may seem pretty harmless, especially when you consider that the league is now over a week...

This morning, he has signed a contract with Skoda Plzen of the Czech Elite League. The contract is just for the lock out, allowing him to come back to the Boston Bruins when the lockout is over.

Thanks to the lockout there isn't much for Boston sports fans to look forward to. the The Bruins preseason was supposed to start tonight, but not anymore. The NFL is becoming more unwatchable every week thanks to horrible officiating, and the Red Sox are just awful. We can still wait around for the Celtics but still that's another whole month.
