BST&N’s Bruins BEATS & TWEETS will keep you updated on all the news OFF the ice about your favorite hockey team. We scour the internets & social media for all the content that will make you the Bruins “INSIDER” around the water cooler. And to “try” to entertain you during this MADDENING work stoppage. END THIS FRIGGIN LOCKOUT! In this edition: Looch adds Tom Brady’s jersey to his growing collection, Shawn Thornton caroling, & A Horse Named “Thank You Kessel”. The man!!!… — Milan Lucic (@MilanLucic4) December 6, 2012 At least Tom Brady personalized the jersey using his Milan’s first name rather than making a FAILED attempt at Looch’s nickname like Pavel Bure. From On Wednesday night, the Boston Pops kicked off their orchestral holiday concert season, joined by the likes of a Bruins winger. Thornton narrated the holiday classic “Twas the Night Before Christmas” with musical accompaniment provided by one of the nation’s premiere orchestras. As cool as this is, I rather have Shawn Thornton throwing BODY CHECKS & RE_ARRANGING FACES. Do you agree?   From Yahoo Puck Daddy: “ThankyouKessel” is harness racing horse trained by Joe MacIsaac and his longtime girlfriend, Carolyn Williston, is the owner.

MUSIC To My Ears… I NEEDED this after all this NHL LOCKOUT BS!

Shawn Thornton Narrates ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas’ at Boston Pops Holiday Concert (Video)

Shawn Thornton would normally be in the midst of a hockey season, dropping his gloves with any willing combatant. The NHL lockout has put any stop to those plans — not that the guys on the other end of Thornton’s fists are complaining — but a guy needs something to do while his job is on hiatus. And maybe, just maybe, Thornton found a new career path after his days in the NHL...
