Hi, I’m Lee Stempniak!
Good morning, everyone!
The Bruins’ playoff chances presently stand at 95.2%, going up half a tick due to Detroit’s loss to the Blackhawks last night.
Frank Vatrano continues to light up the AHL, scoring his third hat trick of the season last night, with all goals coming unassisted. I get the impression the Bruins will keep him in Providence until the Calder Cup playoffs are over, but one can’t help but want to get a look at him with the big kids.
The B’s are on the road tonight against the Rage Cats. Here’s hoping our road record trumps our record against playoff-bound teams.
What’s on tap?
This is encouraging for Miller:
Thought for sure we’d be getting “Miller done for the season” news.
Ah, good. I mean, hopefully they sit him for extra long to make sure he heals completely (heh), good that it’s not as serious as we initially thought.
I was even thinking possibly career threatening injury since it was the same shoulder he had surgery on.
At least we still have part 2 of Quaidenmiller.
Coming soon to a theater near you Quaidenmiller 2. This time, it’s personal.
I need to be put down for a nap.
I swear there has to be a requirement that states that of the two one must be injured at all times.
Killer has been playing some good hockey lately. I hope he can come back soon and pick up where he left off (continuing to improve!!).
Buying a house is complicated. But it shouldn’t be this complicated. Oy vey.
I’m glad that IW bought the house before I was in the picture.
Fun fact, once you start making improvements to your house, you discover how poorly built it is.
Just watch any home improvement show!
except for home improvement.
Or the Red Green show.
“If the women don’t find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.”
I love that show. And it’s true in a way.
I dunno..i think you can learn a lot from that show…like how to duct-tape a door to your truck to use as a plow….
Pulling a muscle in your back is a fun way to start the week.
I have been fighting a pulled muscle in my lower back for about a week. Thursday I was crying while I reffed a game. The skating does help. Sitting in the car on the way home does not. Cutting and splitting wood is not helping!!!! Funny thing is, Jo got the back rub last night, not me. She may have needed it more.
Remember that McDonald’s Max67 commercial? The Bruins get one back:
Love it. I would hug Zdeno Chara without the Big Mac bribe because McDonald’s is yucky. Except for Shamrock shakes, I like those.
Their hot chocolate is really good too.
Huh. Never knew they even made it.
Yep..and its much less artificial “comes out of a machine” sugary than DD.
Truth be told, I don’t like DD. I don’t drink coffee, but if I did, there’s is too weak for me.
If you don’t like coffee, how do you know it’s too weak?
I didn’t say I don’t like coffee, I just don’t drink it. It makes me sleepy and irritable.
Same. I get all jittery and over heated and i cant concentrate…and even though my body is all ramped up my brain is like “WHAT DID YOU DO TO ME…SO SLEEPY”..and then my stomach is like …”YOU WILL REGRET THIS IMMEDIATELY!!”
Yeah, it’s not fun when you body rejects it. It wasn’t always this way, like maybe in my mid-twenties I started having this reaction to it. Weird.
Clearly you haven’t been putting bourbon in your coffee. I can give you a prescription for that!
Waste of good bourbon….
I think I officially love this GIF.
Egg nog shakes are also a win.
Ooo, that sounds good and something I want right now.
The thing is….. anything McDonalds makes you can make better at home in less time than it takes to say big mac and fries. Plus, anything Donald, Mc or no, is on my shit list through November, please God not beyond.
Blah. Yearly review on Thursday. Could be good news, but most likely going to be either neutral or bad. Dunno though, because I don’t interact much with my manager and literally have no clue what his opinions are of me.
Morning all. It’s raining Dobermans and Bobcats here.
Had some coffee. May need more. Mondays. Blah.
How are all of you today?
I am scared for your well-being.
I’m doing way better than the large tree that fell over in the courtyard, and I STILL need more coffee!
but now you will have slightly less oxygen production in your area
I think I’ll be OK but I appreciate your worrying about that.
I am Groot.
BTW. Apologies to anyone who had issues with the site yesterday. I tried to upload some smaller/optimized versions of JPGs & such, and my FTP tool conspired with my touchpad to erase some directories (HP ships some SHAMEFULLY BAD touchpad drivers).
Also, the ‘Mantra” theme tricked me into upgrading and getting rid of many of the Bruin-izations we added. For a while, horrible Maple-Leafs-reminiscent blue fonts from the defaults were all over the place (*shudders*). On the plus side, I found out how to make the control panel work properly for the theme rather than having to hunt through a bunch of PHP & CSS files and hand-editing them, replacing magic color codes with other magic codes.
I’m just going to nod my head and pretend I understood this.
He’s a witch! Burn him!
HE TURNED ME INTO A NEWT!
Did you get better?
You bet your broomstick it is!
totally under-rated movie.
Agreed. It was one of my favorites as a kid.
Allow me to explain using interpretive dance:
You are a wizard.
hahaha, strong work. Recch.
I think he likes gifs now. I’m very proud of him.
Love that spouses are getting involved in gif threads
I was just telling Satan81 the eye roll gif war during the Caps game was hilarious.
I’m a little sad I missed it!
Hopefully some hilarity ensues tonight.
Can you start doing thread recaps again….i miss it.
Yeah. I’ll include thread stuff in my game recaps, and if we grow, then we can make that its own post.
Well I’m happy you take so much pride in the background stuff for this site
Where was I when all this happened? I didn’t hear yelling or incantations.
I really wish the dancing flower real life version of this was better.
Does he often summon Mola Ram while doing computer fixey things?
(which is probably how Habs fans saw Chara handing them a Big Mac)
Of course? Who else would you summon? Beelzebub is too busy. Azrael is too deathy. And I’m not allowed to practice Santeria anymore.
Ah yes, ‘the incident’.
Personally, I don’t practice Santeria, I ain’t got no crystal ball.
What you do if you had a million dollars? Would you spend it all?
I’d buy you a new dress…but not a green one…thats cruel.
Thank you for doing all that shit you said you did with all those alphabet characters n all that other shit.. It’s all black magic to me.
Good Morning All! A little house work this morning. More wood to clean up in the yard today. I’ll be burning the mess in the burn pit. This requires a lot of beer. No games tonight. I’ll try to get somewhere I can watch the game. I loved it when Jagr was a B.
Morning all! My schedule is bonkers the next week and half. Vacation is going to be extra nice at the end of it.
