I well remember when a group of us, then in high school, went to the Garden for every Bruin home game in 1940 and '41. We arrived at 3 p.m. for 8 p.m. games. You had to be there early to get a seat in the front row of the second balcony, home of the Gallery Gods. We did our homework, played cards and ate sandwiches, all in anticipation of seeing the so-called Kraut Line—Milt Schmidt, Bobby Bauer and Woody Dumart—who led the team to the 1939 and '41 Stanley Cups.

I am a lifelong resident of the Boston area and have attended hundreds of events at Boston Garden. All I have to say is good riddance! That dump should have been torn down before the Celtics won their first title.
