500 Posts!

I just noticed this when I logged into Blogger and was impressed. The Godfather and Don are all that remains of the original BoO team. I think a hearty congratulations are in order for those two for sticking around for so long even as their counterparts have moved from Greg and The Meatriarchy to The Muppet and Me.

In recognition of this milestone I propose a look at everyone's favourite memories of the BoO since Ottawa's return to the NHL in 1992.

I'll start it off with this video of the 2002 playoff series between the two clubs. After the sweep, this one is my favourite installment of the BoO: Playoff Edition. It was the first to go seven games and had a little bit of everything including heroes (Roberts and McCauley who stepped into the void left by Mats Sundin's broken wrist), villains (Alfredsson for almost inciting a riot in Toronto when he scored the game-winning goal after hitting Tucker from behind), and goats (poor Ricard Persson whose epitaph will read: Doomed by Domi's Balance - Sacrificed by Alfie).
