    NHL Playoff -- Twitter Erupts with Racist Rants from Bruins Fans



    Just sickening ....

    http://www.ctv.ca/CTVNews/TopStories...ayoffs-120426/

    Jim Rome exposed a bunch of other tweets as well. Makes me sad to think there are still people out there who feel like this.

    Please no comment in this thread, just in the one in the thread I linked to above.
    Welcome to Boston. Years ago my wife and I caught a game at Fenway and couldn't believe the racist crap from the crowd directed at the players.

    One of the idiots mentioned was a 16 year old kid. I've been following his tweets since this story broke and he's been apologizing, literally, to everyone who tweets him.

    There are two others that Rome has re-tweeted that have been unapologetic about dropping the N-bomb. Typical Boston I suppose.

    Good lord isn't that the truth?

    The only thing worse than morons spewing their opinions is giving them a forum with access to millions, and forcing them to use 140 characters.

    No supposing about it. Boston was always one of the worse racist towns on earth. I also
    heard those chants at Fenway. My brother went to seminary up there and I visited him
    often and we went to games not just at Fenway but at the old Garden.

    In fact, Mason didn't sign with NE because of that and I think they offered more money
    and they went to the SB. His wife was a professional and had
    a better chance of getting a job in DC so Mason signed here.
