Bruins owner wants to write off team meals as tax deductions

Bruins owner Jeremy Jacobs has the reputation of being … well, frugal. From going from charter flights to commercial, to making their non-playing employees pay the taxes on their 2011 Stanley Cup rings, the comparison to C. Montgomery Burns seems apt.
