Hyperbole? Boston Bruins Announcer Knows Not Of This Word

NESN announcer Jack Edwards compares the 4-2 victory by the Boston Bruins over the Montreal Canadiens to the sacrifices made by Revolutionary War forces during the Battles of Lexington and Concord which gave rise to Patriots’ Day and why children had the day off of school yesterday in Boston, among other things.

Thankfully, no one informed Edwards of the fact that today is the day that Yom Hashoah, otherwise known as Holocaust Remembrance Day, is  observed this year. Because that could have been real, real awkward.
