Good morning, everyone! A perfect return for Perfect Patrice! Good to see Quaider back, too!
The playoff race in the East got ever so tighter last night. Should make for a fun week leading up to the trade deadline.
What’s on tap?
Well. I’m home early because the plumbing work happening is taking forever and my wife had to leave for work. This is after having Monday off for a holiday. Being sick as a dog last Thursday and staying home. And going skiing last Tuesday.
Do I even work anymore?
Can I have your job?
2 thoughts: 1) I am not proud of this and have a really important review coming up, so this is a really shitty time for this chain of events. 2) That is the first time I have EVER heard someone ask me that, hahahahaha
Come to think of it, I get 6 weeks of vacation here…
Weekly PHA update returns!
We lost 6-1 last night. We were a little slow in the first, play hard in the second and half of the third before the score got out of hand. We allowed three short handed goals. The opposing goalie played amazing as well. He was a fill in too.
Next game is tomorrow! I’m glad we get to move on quickly from that loss.
Maybe you should go with overload slot instead of umbrella on the power play.
Let’s talk about this guy I work with, who I generally believe is a very intelligent, reasonable human being. I don’t know what’s gotten into him.
No. Never. Tell him he’s not your father and let him cut off your hand with a lightsaber.
You’re his supervisor now, right? You can fire him now, right?
Ha! He is super important, alas.
I hope you shoved last night’s game in his face.
Like literally printed out the game recap and shoved his face in it.
If you haven’t done this, please go do so now.
You’re on a roll and I’m dying here
I won’t lie, I killed myself with this one.
You picked up on how to be a ghost really quickly. I am impressed.
“I generally believe is a very intelligent, reasonable human being”
Clearly, you need to work on your judgement of people. /s
This will never ever ever ever EVER get old.
ATTENTION SISTER: Loui off the market?
Everyone is in such a rush to trade Loui because he’s going to be too expensive. Has anyone stopped to think that maybe he likes making 4 million a year and doesn’t want a pay raise?
he’s probably being traded.
I don’t think anyone specifically asked you.
Timmy also is generally a fatalist, as well, so there’s that
Oh, I know, but I just wanted to point it out anyway.
“Has anyone stopped to think that maybe he likes making 4 million a year and doesn’t want a pay raise?”
I think the answer is a very definitive “No.”
Oh, have you asked him?
still waiting for someone to ask him, it seems.
Dammit, I was looking all over for this gif when someone mentioned leaving him behind in Minnesota the other day!
“Loui Eriksson gif” on google images, yo
I added “map” I guess that was the problem!
He probably has him on speed dial.
I mean that I’m sure that nobody in the hockey world has stopped to consider that question.
Oh hey apparently we’ve got a hockey insider here.
Maybe he talked with him and is not telling you for fear you’d spontaneously combust. What a good brother!
Maybe he told Sweeney that he would actually take a pay cut and that all the money saved should go to Marchand. HE’S BEING A GOOD TEAMMATE HERE PEOPLE!
I\’d never say anything bad about him, but I seriously doubt this is what\’s happening.
I think Krejci moping around the locker room finally got to him and he said OK, fine, I\’ll stay.
Also he needs to finish that chess game with Gustavsson and Pasta probably keeps knocking over the pieces.
STOP RUINING MY NARRATIVE!
I am creating MY OWN narrative, thank you!
Don’t you have pretend cats you need to go play with?
Reasons why Loui will stay is way more interesting and less sad than seeing a cat put a plastic bag over his head.
Could this be a thing? I really hope this is a thing. We need to keep our Swede numbers up.
Parting would be such Swede sorrow.
Getting ready to head out to the Empire State. Double header today. Ciao.
FYI, the latest episode of Bearly on Topic is up here on this very website. You can still stream it from Soundcloud, or other places but we have the ability to embed it here.
We keep killing old guys on the Blame Game. Why do we keep doing this?
We should stop doing this.
We definitely should. I propose an age limit be placed on old men. You could say that the Blame Game is No Game for Old Men.
Hey, wait, I think someone blamed Scalia AND NOW HE\’S DEAD, TOO!
Yeah, we’re pretty terrible
Today can eat a junglely dick. Last night’s game was super meh, but yay loui scored again!
(this message has been here sense 9:15… I’m so sick of today)
Guten Morgen, meine Freunde!
Some Bullet Points for your reading pleasure:
I’m really disappointed that I forgot to bring my haiku skills to the game thread last night.
Well, you had a tough day. You can do that in the future on less bad days.
Also, by haiku I mean OMG I LOVE ROMAN JOSI LET ME MAKE A FOOL OF MYSELF. I fully expect that we will find many Josi pictures and post them for the enjoyment of all. If Doc is smart, he will deploy his special weapon to counteract it.
#ClicheNight was #fuckinghysterical.
It is better to have scored and lost, than never to have scored at all.
I, too, still have a LiveJournal. I haven’t written in it for about 8 years. I’m keeping it around so I have reference material for when I write the novel that is my life from 2001-2003.
Let’s just say that those two years involved international crime, bisexual love triangles, drugs, and lots of rock and roll.
I look forward to this book.
Unfortunately, I had already done all my interesting sexual stuff before my LJ days. Instead, it turned in to the very public losing of my mind because I believed that I could go to college, have a double major, and work full time. I haven’t written in it much at all since 2008 since most of my friends went to MyFace.
I’ve done some preliminary mental storyboarding of the book. I need to consult with my friends who went through a lot of it with me.
I almost want to do it Game of Thrones style – write chapters from the first-person perspectives of the characters. But, I think that might get too dicey, particularly because I’d be writing about real people (even though I’d definitely change the names).
It’ll happen eventually, though, it was a wild time.
Morning All! No cobwebs in the brain this morning (even though my last game started at 10:40 last night…yuck)
CHAINSMOKER! I missed you.
Morning! You reffing West Coast games now?
Thursday night the last game STARTS at 11:10. Thank you Mr Schedule maker guy.!
Why d people want to play hockey so late? Is it so that the West Coast can see it?
Ice time is a bitch, yo
The answer is that they don’t want to play that late. We have 5 high schools, a state college and a pro team in Danbury, plus all the youth hockey. The only ice time left is late at night. Things will get better in a couple weeks as the high school season ends, followed shortly after by the end of youth hockey season. Game times will get more reasonable then.
Oh, good. I thought it was some nighthawks wanting to play that late.
Usually they are as ready to go home as I am. No icing called after 11pm (my rule!)
