Edwards civil insult Carolina Hurricanes

JACK EDWARDS USES CIVIL WAR TO INSULT FANS AT CAROLINA HURRICANES GAME

MAY 12, 2022  (9H22)      TIM TUCKER
I know it's hard to believe that infamous Boston Bruins commentator Jack Edwards said something strange, but here we are. Not sure how this one flew under the radar for so long. In any case, in Tuesday's game five between the Carolina Hurricanes and Boston Bruins, Carolina was leading 5-1 with a few minutes left in the third when a "Boston sucks" chant broke out at PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina. Edwards took the opportunity to get in a dig at the Hurricanes faithful by going all the way back to 1861.


If you didn't catch it, his exact words were "They can't let the civil war go, can they." Massachusetts and North Carolina were on opposite sides of the major turning point in US history.

Honestly, when I first heard this, I couldn't help but laugh. The comment is just so stupid. I have no doubt Carolina fans' hate for Boston stems from nothing other than hockey itself, and bringing the Civil War into the conversation just seems completely irrelevant. But, leave it to Edwards to try and stir the pot in any he can.
