Morning Free Association 3/7/16

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:

Kevan Miller deemed day-to-day (upper body), per Julien. He did not travel with the team.

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!!).

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.

Satan 81's Sister

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.

Thought for sure we’d be getting “Miller done for the season” news.

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.

Or the Red Green show.

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….

I love that show. And it’s true in a way.

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.

Good morning

  • I know i’ve commented already, but wanted to say officially
  • Happy birthday to my dad who i know will totally not see this here, but w/e
  • Man this is a big week for the Bruins. Here’s to the “playing well trend” continues
  • Hour meetings before 12 on Monday mornings should be against all labor laws. Unless breakfast is provided (as it was today). That trend will not continue, 100% gauranteed
  • I can’t stop listening to pop goes punk covers of Taylor Swift songs. I laugh every time
  • Coffee and wanting to not be in the ink lab on tap today

    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’m doing way better than the large tree that fell over in the courtyard, and I STILL need more coffee!

    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.

    Where was I when all this happened? I didn’t hear yelling or incantations.

    Does he often summon Mola Ram while doing computer fixey things?

    the german hammer

    Of course? Who else would you summon? Beelzebub is too busy. Azrael is too deathy. And I’m not allowed to practice Santeria anymore.

    phonymahoney
    Editor

    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.

    I was just telling Satan81 the eye roll gif war during the Caps game was hilarious.

    Yeah. I’ll include thread stuff in my game recaps, and if we grow, then we can make that its own post.

    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.
