From a media perspective, game nights involve business attire, practices are casual and Monday morning pressers are a free for all. Okay, maybe not a free for all, but they have more of an anything goes mentality. Sure, abiding by some rules are necessary, but jeans are usually acceptable — shorts, at least in the eyes of Bruins Head Coach Claude Julien are not, so beware. This morning, Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli addressed the media from TD Garden in Boston and the media bombarded Chiarelli with questions all while adorning comfortable attire and sipping coffee from Dunkin Donuts. Myself included.
Media Tip: Professionalism is a key component to success, we all know that. But don’t forget to take a minute here and there and remember that on occasion it’s still okay to be a fan. Today for example, I had an nice little coffee break with Bobby, obviously, I did the majority of the talking. In all seriousness, I’m usually running to and from the Garden as media. So, taking a moment to be a fan and pose for a photo with a Boston landmark was a tiny joy.
