For the last 15 years, Donnie Sweeney has graced the blue line for the Boston Bruins.
I am going to miss the guy. He wasn't the best player, but he was a guy you root for. I met him once in his second year or so while he was doing the Bruins' Wives Carnival. He was terrific with the fans and a class act.
Quite the state tour for Bucky this year: the Frozen Tundra Classic victory over Ohio St. at Lambeau f'n Field, then NCAA playoffs across the street at the Resch Center, and the Frozen Four in Milwaukee. Man, I'd hate to see the UW Band bus's gas bill.
