Morning Free Association 2/23/2016

Good morning, everyone! When do we go on the road again?

Yesterday was the 36th anniversary of the Miracle On Ice game. While everyone knows Al Michaels’ famous game call in the final moments, there’s an interesting play-by-play by Curt Chaplin, one of ABC’s reporters. Cool story, and I think Chaplin did a better job overall of covering the game. You can go straight to the YouTube video here.

What’s on tap?

Hey All! Good stuff on here today! Is it possible to trade Louie and sign him in the off season? It worked for the Yotes and Vermette.

Id rather just sign him. Iv’e always been in the camp of “Sign him”. But only if its reasonable. 4 year deal at 5.5 is prolly my max.

We were talking yesterday about trading him and then using whatever we got back to trade FOR him again. wink

I done gone made an account. I was sad when i came back to morning skate and it was all sad-faced. Life has been busy, trying to figure out how to deal with a possible eviction due to renting from a guy who hasn’t been paying the bank…i’m thinking about buying the property if the price is right…but id rather not have to move out just to move back in if this happens. Ontop of that work is now considering sending me out to Abu Dhabi for 40 days starting april. HHORRAYY.

Do they call you Nermal at work?

NOPE! That was Bryan, he was the first to go. I am more of an Odie. We have about 20 people or so that go over to support the site.

I take it I’m not exactly the first to make that joke

I was the first one to make the joke at work actually. I was sending our TA Nermalgrams. But i still appreciate the joke because sadly not as many people are Garfield fans as you would think.

Oh, there is a joke in here somewhere…

Does it seem weird that we’re like all the same in a new place?

Bullet points!

  • Woke up all fuzzy this morning. Only three drinks, one of which was pre-game.
  • I hope the Coyotes get a fucking ridiculous return for Boedker, since Eriksson is better and should be more costly. I don’t think Donny is dumb like previous GMs who just take the first offer they get and run with it.
  • Interviewed someone at 10 today. She was delightful but I am a TERRIBLE interviewer. I don’t know how to refine this ‘skill’.
  • Speaking of that, I have another one at EIGHT THIRTY tomorrow morning. Woof.
  • Supposed to have a date tonight with the guy from last week who I’ve spoken to on an off for years (we always end up in each other’s search results but have never gone out), and I’m not excited. Debating whether to just give up on the whole dating thing for now or what.
  • Thinking Morrow could be an okay third pair defenseman if allowed to stay in the lineup. Keep in mind I said he’d be okay, not anything special.
  • Beleskey has turned out to be a really good pickup with a reasonable contract. I find I’m liking him more and more each game.

    Eh, if you’re not feeling the dating thing, I say table it for now. Then again, and I say this from experience, when you’re really not looking is when it finds you.

    I can’t help but think this reminds me of the whole “Wesley Snipes” arc on 30 Rock.

    830 interview? I’d point out thats much worse for the interviewee than it is for you, the interviewer

    I’d prefer that as an interviewee, to be honest. Then I don’t have to spend the whole day panicking.

    I’d rather mid-morning so I have time to get my wits fully about me

    Helps that I’m usually at work by 7AM.

    It is, but I’m REALLY not good at it. He’s also already interviewed here for a different position with more seasoned interviewers, so I’ll probably look like a weirdo.

    Just remember, They are the nervous ones. I have a friend that interviews for a living…you should see the questions he asks. He has a list of some major effed up stuff.

  • Boedker *might* come cheaper salary-wise too, so what others will be offering for him sounds like it could be interesting.
  • Why do you say you’re a terrible interviewer? smile
  • On the one hand, you’re not excited for this. Not nervous excited or happy excited. On the other hand maybe that’s a good thing to not be nervous about this? Is it a first date or is it coffee?
  • I’ve always been happy with the Beleskey pick-up. That contract he signed was unreal.
  • phonymahoney

    Well, I feel like I’m awkward and I have a tough time flowing from one subject to the next. Also, I feel very awkward closing them.

    It’s a drink. I can’t do longer than that because I lose interest and don’t find myself interesting.

    Yeah, I was never disappointed about Beleskey. I’m glad he’s played well consistently, even if he doesn’t show up on the score sheet a ton.

    Miss Muse
    Editor

    I think the ideal interview is like a conversation, where things just happen to flow, and it says a lot of the interviewee doesn’t have a whole heck of a lot to say.

    I never really consider coffee/drinks to be a first date cause that usually is where you discover IF you have anything going between you, at least an easy rapport, and THEN maybe you do something more “dateish” the second time you meet.

    Hey guys

  • I woke up late this morning because my job as Julio Wrangler requires that I am awake at odd hours
  • Woke up with half my head full of gunk and our morning walk literally took care of that. Fresh air does wonders.
  • Last night’s game was like being excited for a sequel to a favourite movie and it being complete trash
  • I started doing a rough edit of the new BoT episode last night. I think we’re just going to release an episode of 30 minutes of our laughter. Oh don’t worry, there was a solid hour of it.

    So….I think there was a bearded lady on my bus this morning who carried with her a large stick and kept pounding the floor repeatedly with it…

    Tuesdays.

    On tap, as usual, is coffee (and reimbursements). My coworker is out today. He says he’s sick but maybe he’s out buying me a wedding gift instead. wink
