‘To all of the ‘‘bandwagon’’ fans: Thank you for joining in on the ride. I appreciate being able to walk into a bar and seeing the game on without having to ask for the Yankees game to be switched off. I know I have heard a lot of negative comments about ‘‘bandwagon’’ fans in recent months, but I appreciate your support. I hope the run made some ‘‘real’’ fans out of you. If not, hopefully the wagon will be circling again next year and we do it all again, minus the last week or so. I like to talk hockey, and there have been plenty more people willing to talk it with me this year than ever before (I came to town in 2003). So, thank you, sincerely.’
