Boudreau doesn't want to be known as the F-Bomber
I've clearly overcovered the issue of Bruce Boudreau and profanity, but now that it's become kind of my thing, I can't really stop. And so, here was Boudreau, talking about 24/7 during a Monday interview with 105.9 The Edge.
"That's not how we usually act, but it wasn't like it's a press conference and I went on a rant," Boudreau said, when asked about his 15 F-bomb display. "Initially, if you look at it, I walked in and I asked [the cameras] to leave, but they didn't. You have to do what you have to do. I mean, just because the TV lights are on in there, you couldn't change the whole structure of the game plan or what my thoughts to the players were at that time, because then it wouldn't be real....
"The way they did the show was riveting TV, even for a non hockey fan, and the way they've set it up, there's gonna be a lot of people out there can't wait to see what's next. You've got the Unabomber; I just don't want to be known as the F-Bomber."
Great nickname idea, sir. Just great. Boudreau also seemed relieved that the 8-game losing streak was over. Like, really relieved.
"All those analysts, half of them never played the game, so they know diddly," he said. "When they're praising you, they don't know much, and when they're criticizing you, they don't know much, so you've got to take it for what it's worth. But at the same time, we do know now how bad it feels to lose. If you could have seen the looks on the guys' faces last night, for one night at least, they were one happy group....
"It was everywhere, all the time. I mean, I don't' know what it was about our team losing some games, but it was magnified greatly, and in every newspaper where we went, every city we went. So I'm glad at least we can quit talking about that thing."
Boudreau was then asked whether he could sleep and eat during the bad times.
"Sleep I can't do," he said. "There's no chance. I haven't slept in three weeks, in reality. [Eating], just look at me. I think I can handle that pretty well."
That F-Bomber, always joking.
