Morning Free Association 3/15/16

On This Day in Hockey, the Sharks are looking for a new goal song, starting with this masterpiece:

The team used to play “Rock and Roll, Part 2” by Gary Glitter, but since Glitter is serving a 16-year sentence for sex crimes against children, I guess some folks objected on the flimsy grounds of “overwhelming existential and moral horror”. Pfah!
They then consisdered such cultural blockbusters as “Burn it to the Ground” by Nickelback. I’d thought they’d settled on a song by SixxAM (aka Nikki Sixx), which didn’t sound at all like that last one, but they are in the midst of a fan vote right now.

So it seems like the Bruins need to match them. Might I suggest this:

(kidding.)

In other news, the Islanders also donned green jerseys in honor of St. Patricks day.


Because hey, when I think St. Patty’s, I think Brooklyn – Am I right?

And in officiating news, Colin Campbell, the senior vice president of hockey operations for the NHL, announced on Monday that the league would be installing blue line cameras for the playoffs.
“That’s the one in-season tweak we can make,” Campbell said. “It’s not a rule change; it’s just helping make the process better.”
Yes, soup-daddy, the biggest issue with coaches’ challenges has obviously been getting the offsides calls correct. Yeah. Personally, I’m all for rewarding coaches who make spurious offsides challenges with a sound kick to the balls, but that’s just me.

Finally, I’d like to point out that the Bruins still enter March 15, 2016 with a slim 1 point lead over each Floridian team. The Bolts and Panthers have 7:30 games vs the struggling Leafs and struggling Habs, respectively. The Bruins are on the road later tonight vs. the far more respectable Sharks. Well, respectable except for that song…

Good morning! What’s on tap?

Ugh. Are we sure today is Tuesday and not Monday? I just spent an hour+ looking for a small screw driver cause I dropped it and if I didn’t find it, it would have been in the carriage of this printer causing thousands of dollars in damage when I turned it back on. After searching for so long I asked a co-worker for help which he found it in 2 minutes on the floor -_- ugh.

Hey guys, thought I already checked in, but it looks like I didn’t.

  • I had a hard time getting to sleep and then thought I felt an earthquake which must have been a .000001 on the Richter Scale with its epicenter in my apartment. I must have been dreaming, I guess, cause no one else felt it and it wasn’t reported online.
  • Kings shutout the Hawks at the UC and I am thrilled.
  • I want to do a lot to prepare for tonight’s game that maybe no one will watch with me grin but I have reimbursements to do. I have some ideas, though, that I want to get down.
  • It’s Finals Week/Spring Break so maybe I can get away with it, though.
  • I need breakfast. Might be time for an omelette soon.

    The city of San Jose refuses to feed Jack Edwards. This is unacceptable.

    Whassup with a downtown diner not opening 'til 8 a.m. West Coast time?
    If I ever eat, I'll see you tonight for Bruins-Sharks on NESN.

    A former employee just called me with an insurance question. She completed me on my “sexy voice.” She suggested I tell my girlfriend that I got a compliment from a stranger so I could “get some extra lovin’.”

    Well alrighty then.

    Miss Muse

    That’s kinda…messed up. She’s got a lot of courage to possibly sexually harass an HR specialist, you know? grin

    Well, she is a FORMER employee

    On the flip side, if this HR thing doesn’t work out, you could make some money running a phone sex line (do those even still exist in a webcam world?)

    Of course they do. At least that’s what late-night Comedy Central commercials suggest.

    “Call me. Call me now.”

    When I was a kid, this is when I knew I was staying up way too late watching dumb movies, when ALL the commercials switched to chat line ones.

    And on our podcast you keep all your clothes on. Pleaseandthankyou. Or I will hunt you down and make you pay for breaking my rule.

    I believe Tim is allowed no pants.

    He is but he’s not allowed to show me that he is not wearing pants. Actually, that’s the rule that can apply to everyone. Sometimes, I record in my pajamas. They’re not sexy, well, not the ones I wear for that.

    Does your employer have some sort of health concierge? Many employers have them but very few of their employees use them

    Not sure (looks like I”m one of the many who don’t!). I’m trying to stick within a certain hospital’s network because my wife works for that hospital and if we ever had to move to her insurance, hers definitely favors that hospital’s network.

    Morning.

    I had something with raw onions in it last night and I get to pay today. No food, just water. Netflix and chill until the pain goes away. “Knights of Badassdom” right now.

    As for tonight’s game, eh. Actually, I have no idea how to type the sound that I just made. I am not excited about the WC swing because I dislike all the teams. Maybe dislike is the wrong term; I nothing all the teams. Yep, that’s it. Bleh.

    It’s a Bar Stool sports link (sorry I’m not sorry) about hockey dads. The clips they found are hilarious and full of foul language.

    Some of you already know this,

    But I really hit my 3rd interview out of the park. They told me they have one other candidate to interview this week and they will let me know Monday.

    I believe my days at this current job are limited.

    Excellent! Fingers crossed you get the job!

    That’s always a fantastic feeling when you leave an interview confident. Sometimes even if you don’t get the job, the confidence still sticks with you.

    I do hope you get it, though.
