If you were wondering why Brad Marchand wasn't featured in the Boston Bruins' championship DVD, the popular instigator provided an answer in the latest edition of Sports Illustrated: He was too drunk to be interviewed.
Three nights after the Bruins secured their first Stanley Cup in 39 years, the team celebrated deep into the night at a now notorious party at a club at Foxwoods Casino in Connecticut. The next day, the Bruins each took their turns being interviewed for the commemorative DVD. When it was the 23-year-old Marchand's turn, at 4 p.m., he was excused because he was, as he put it, "intoxicated."
Marchand, Marchand, Marchand. You dog you. Apparently him and Seguin went on a "bit of a tear" after winning Lord Stanley. I would love for him to clarify "a bit of a tear" for us. Does a "bit of a tear" mean he got rocked for a week straight or does "a bit of a tear" mean he got rocked for 2 months straight? The part that makes me mad is the fact that his Dad was the reason for the bender-ender. He sat him down and said he had to win the next 2 out of 3 championships in order to go on this "tear" that Marchand was speaking of. I wish the excuse of being too drunk could be used more. If that excuse flew with the teachers here I think that would make for some pretty interesting test days. I guess the only way to get a tattoo spelled wrong is to be on "a bit of a tear."
