Red Sox pitcher Joe Kelly attended the Boston Bruins playoff game on Saturday night. He helped hype up the fans in Boston when his fight with the Yankees was shown on the jumbotron.
Kelly then received a standing ovation as a “Yankees Suck” chant broke out. He may have been suspended for 6 games for his role in the fight, but he will forever be loved in Boston because of it.
I’d say it was probably worth it. There isn’t much that tops an arena full of people giving you a standing ovation.
The Bruins handled their business and won the game 7-3 to take a 2-0 series lead.
