Well, here’s a little nugget of joy for disheartened Bruins fans: the fan-favorite Merlot Line is getting a blog!
The line, so named for their maroon-colored jerseys they wear during practice, consists of Shawn Thornton, Gregory Campbell and Daniel Paille. Sometimes they are called the energy line as well. Their versatility and affability has made them fan favorites. Now we can hear from them three times a week, courtesy the Boston Herald.
On the Bear Blog, launching today, Campbell will handle Monday posts, Thornton Wednesday and Paille Friday. (Hey, that rhymes.) I’ve often said I like hearing more from the players than just the sound bites in pre- and post-game articles. A blog like this is a perfect outlet. I look forward to seeing what these guys have in store for us.
