With Cam The Man Neely in their line-up, they sure were the best!
And they should have won it ALL - in 1993.
Instead, 1993 was one of the worst years of my life - as well as in Bruins post-season history...
And it would be Neely's swan song too... :(
Life is not fair sometimes...
Further evidence of that is the fact that, for their milestone 75th anniversary, the Bruins had perennial choker Joe Thornton as their "big star"...
Big Bird is more like it...
Actually, no - I am being unfair here. :(
Big Bird had more leadership and managed to gather up the denizens on Sesame Street to move forward and make things happen with far greater aplomb than "Jolly Joe" there ever did!

M.O.T.U.s - - - et bouche cousue... ;)
Ahh - the good old days when we believed that a bunch of freakazoids made out of plastic could veritably be deemed to be -if only for a brief instant of make-believe bogus glory- the "masters" of the whole blamed universe...!!!
Again - WHAT THE HELL WERE WE THINKING?!?
Or rather - what was Mattel thinking?
(Mattel and Marvel - an unholy alliance made in Hell!
Although it is true that Mattel had partnered up with DC first - and He-Man's first "big time" exposure had been alongside equally-stuffy big lug Superman in a DC "comic-book"...!
Ahh - the amounts of useless knowledge that I possess...! But I digress...)
I might end on this subject by voicing my theory that, at the time, Mattel must have been run by either an atheistic lunatic or a pantheist...?
But who the heck cares...?!?
One of the so-called ''masters'' here - definitely the most hirsute one!
(Beast Man was dethroned very quickly by this guy: Grizzlor, I believe?)
Though a viallinous chap, Grizz is so cuddly and all...
everybody adopted him!
And he turned ''good'' in many households!
I could never make abstraction of those similarities between
''Man-At-Arms'' and the Enforcer -
two second fiddles, both equally rough around the edges
(in the sense of less chiseled...!)
who could do the job, sure - but lacked a little something...
A little something the main hero had in spades, of course...
And this is the main hero here - of course!
What would have been the entire ''MotU'' thing
without ''He-Man'' - huh?
I got my action figure (exact as pictured here - with legs too!)
via mail... completely free of charge...
thanks to an ad that I saw in a newspaper!!!
Muito obrigado, Journal de Mourial...!!!
For once, the postal services did not completely destroy
my freebie here - He-Man fit in the mailbox!
