Boston Bruins announcer Jack Edwards likens the playoff loss to a famous tragedy
Oh humanity! Boston Bruins play-by-play announcer Jack Edwards compared the NHL team’s elimination in the first round of the playoffs on Sunday to the Hindenburg tragedy. (Check out the video below.)
The Bruins had by far the best record of the regular season, so Edwards’ disappointment was understandable. Even if his sense of perspective wasn’t.
The Hindenburg zeppelin burst into flames on landing at Lakehurst, New Jersey on May 6, 1937, killing dozens on board and one member of the ground crew.
Comparing an early loss in the Stanley Cup playoffs in addition probably wasn’t the best call.
Edwards describes himself as “passionate” and “a little crazy”. Twitter bio. Maybe next time he should just keep famous catastrophes out of the conversation.
