-- The Bruins are going to the Stanley Cup Final after their Game 4 win over the Hurricanes and the other Boston sports teams sent their support on Thursday night.

The Patriots tweeted, “That going to the 'ship feeling. Congrats, @NHLBruins! #StanleyCup” along with a video of Tom Brady celebrating.

The Red Sox also sent their congratulations, tweeting, “WE (heart) BOSTON. Bring us that #StanleyCup, @NHLBruins!”

Both of these teams, of course, won the championships in their sports this past year.

Kind of awkward for the Celtics.

Alex Cora also sent his support to the Bruins with a tweet on Thursday night.

“4 más @NHLBruins,” Cora tweeted to the team.

-- David Ortiz is teaming up with Prince and Cecil Fielder to pose nude but it is not for the ESPN Body Issue.

The three former MLB stars are joining forces for a Kingsford Charcoal ad campaign in which they pose nude while enjoying summer activites.

Ortiz even called his body “seared to perfection” in his tweet, which included a photo of Ortiz wearing absolutely no clothes and only a grill in front of him.

Do not try that at home.
