    To be fair, I dug a walkable tunnel from my seat in Agganis all the way to an isolated pier in the harbor where rum runners organized by Whitey Bulger's crew can roll barrels of moonshine transported from this sills out in the Berkshires.

      Trying to get the thread back onto BU hockey, I'm not quite sure why you're discounting the 2008-09 season. That said, it was the 1997-98 season when Chris Drury ended the season with 57 points. That ended a six season run (and 14-of-15 seasons) of the leading scoring topping 50 points.

I understand the excitement factor and wish I could join him, but I can't and miss the play every time. I've talked to him, I've yelled at him, yet he keeps doing it.

        But just because it adds to his enjoyment, who care if it detracts from someone else's? That's not inconsiderate at all...

It's pathological and I don't think I could control it if I tried. If the person in front of me pleaded I might try to control it though.
        Agree with Knights that I'm sorry about that for BU2K. This does seem like an exception to the norm where two things that are very reasonable collide. I do think that it is reasonable that sometimes the game will bring the fans to their feet for a few moments here or there but it is also reasonable for BU2K to want to be able to see the whole of the games. Are the people in front of that person standing too and thus obstructing his view causing him to stand? If not, a "win win" might be to offer to swap season ticket locations with him for next season... I would assume the ticket locations are of similar quality.

          I'm not "discounting" the 2009 season - I just think we all know that Wilson and Bonino both had 50+ points that season, but that had been the first time in a while, so I wanted to see who else other than that year had as many as Chiasson has. For what it is worth, those 50 point totals were likely in more games to this point (I forget if those 2 IceBreaker games counted towards the max, but Wilson missed games for the WJC, I believe). With at leat two games to go, Chiasson has a chance to reach the 50 point mark.

            There's a breakaway, I'm standing up, and then you can kick me out if you want, whiners and complainers be ****ed.

            Same thing with deep fly balls. In standing room in Fenway, people standing up made me unable to see the action, and I never *****ed about that.

            It's sad how much the potential for a great environment is wasted at Agganis Arena, but I suppose that's what happens when you price out the majority of fans.

                She hit a nerve...and you know the funny thing is - I don't jump up and cheer until AFTER the goal is scored (I mean, I'm not clairvoyant), so I'm not "blocking" anyone's view of ANYTHING...

                No worse than looking at the webcast and seeing the dancing Rhetts ("WE WIN!!") when it would be nice to see, for example, the handshake line or a shot of the team...

                  To me, that's an important distinction, and I suspect if you had said that in the first place you wouldn't have gotten the reaction you did. IMO, standing up after a goal is entirely reasonable and I do it myself. But there are a lot of people who stand up often while the play is going on and, since you can't necessarily anticipate when they'll stand up, they do block the view of people behind them, and I think that's really inconsiderate.

                    Fair point...sorry, I assumed that when I said "spontaneously react to a great play" it implies that the great play has to happen FIRST. I don't know how I can anticipate a great play, but, yes, I'll take the blame for my "wording."

                    Let's move on to the Garden! By the way, my seats are in the last row of the loge, so the only people I'll be blocking are the ones in the concourse behind me walking around.

                      Fortunately I will be meeting with the surgeon in 2 weeks and should be able to get a knee replacement in the off season so it won't be as much of issue going forward.

                              If it goes as well as my other one did, I will be very happy.
