“After watching the segment, I turned to my partner, Lorrie, and said, 'This stinks! I love the Bruins and I want them to win! ... But I really want Laila to win, too!'" he wrote.

He went on to say how happy he would be to meet Laila and show her and her family more of Boston.

“I certainly can't promise you a cooler experience than standing on the Garden ice kissing the Stanley Cup, but Boston's a great city and would love to have you back.”
