That was a lot like the Rapture. Especially the part where nothing happens. Except if the Rapture really happened, then the wretched souls left behind would have no idea that anything happened. Are we doomed to a Purgatory of low-ball trade offers and first round exits? Or are we secure in knowing that nothing really happened and that life will go on as…er…wait…uh oh.

Soooooo yeah…What’s on tap?

Also you know what? If the rapture happened yesterday, we’d really be in a mess cause I’m sure Bergy would have ascended.

My hoodie has found its way back to Wilmington, DE. It was signed for, and I gave the stupid guy about 2 weeks (MORE than enough time, I think) to refund my money. So now, we wait.

Is it still traveling “rural back-roads” route?

Miss Muse

Oh no, this was FedEx. Tracking Number and Proof of Signature. I am NOT kidding around here. smile

Rinaldo suspended five games

That’s fair.

Miss Muse

Not surprising.

One more question for you all. Rinaldo. Put on waivers. Has that hearing today and may get some games off for bad behavior. Are they thinking of moving him to the AHL as he cleared waivers, and would that affect his punishment any — do suspensions from the NHL carry over to the AHL?

DrHandgrenaid
Editor

Dunno. It might ‘wait’ until he gets called back up to the NHL, maybe?

Miss Muse

Amalie Benjamin (as usual) has the answer:

Rinaldo will have to serve the five games in the NHL. The AHL can choose to uphold the suspension there, too.

Why do I always hit peak “Done with this place” when I’m in no position to change jobs. Last year it was because of the wedding. This year it’s because I don’t want to fuck up our mortgage application and approval.

Because your coworkers are bastard coated bastards?

It’s not even personal this time. I’m just done with the bitching, the general unwillingness for improvement in manufacturing, and people competing for who’s priority. It’s just so fucking tiring to listen to this non-sense, even if I’m largely avoiding it.

So if any of you haven’t seen John Oliver’s Trump rant from this past weekend, I strongly encourage you to do so. #MakeDonaldDrumpfAgain is wonderful

Miss Muse

The finale alone was amazing!

John Oliver is a comic and runs a TV. I take everything he say as entertainment. Yes, Trump is an asshole. That’s all I will take from that.

Miss Muse

It’s kinda of amazing how Jon Stewart changed the landscape for political comedy. The Daily Show used to be about pretending to be an actual news crew, going into smallish towns and interviewing people over weird things. John Stewart totally revamped that in a way that not even Weekend Update ever really did.

The funny thing is that the original “Daily Show” name was even a spoof on itself because it was only one night a week.

It was a pretty solid. He earned the mic drop.

I don’t watch nearly enough Last Week Tonight. I need to fix that, because John Oliver is great

I seem to recall a brief, ill-considered movement to call the 3rd line to start the 12-13 season the Holy Trinity, as it was the Son of God-Christ Kelly-Raptor Jesus.

The Chris Bourque turned out to be the Son of Milkman, Kelly and Pevs had a bad season, and the hockey gods gave us Oflodnap

How the hell did that team make the SCF?

I remember this. It worked well til the Milkman got involved.

It was obviously because of Redden.

I am ok with the Bruins making the playoffs…………………………………… as long as It’s a matchup against the Panthers haha “priorities”

I am even ok with TB…i am less OK with TB…but i do not think the last game was a good indication. The team got stupid and the refs got stupid all at the same time and just swung momentum in unfathomable directions. I am really ok in with any team except the Caps (not including the west).
