Morning Free Association 3/31/16

Good morning, kids!

What’s good this morning? I don’t know. Philly won last night. We have 88 points for third in our division. Both wildcard teams have more points than we do – that’s scary – and Detroit is one point behind us.

We’ve said it before and it’s still true:
Every point matters. Every game matters.

Let’s hope that both teams lose every game played for the rest of the season, and that the Bruins win each game twice.

That’ll work, right?

Other things:

  • Sources say Jimmy Vesey has the Bruins on his mind. That would be nice.
  • The Ducks beat Calgary 8-3.
  • Ottawa beat Winnipeg in last night’s Futility Classic.

    So what is a good place to eat in Providence?

    For lunch, I recommend AS220, which is an art collective with studios and a gallery that also happens to run a restaurant and bar. Cool place.

    For beer, Trinity Brewhouse, which happens to be a block away from the Dunk. They have food there, too.

    For dinner, you could check out the Italian restaurants in Federal Hill:

    Though it will be great fodder for HHG and CarvinBass rants.

    i actually don’t follow KPD & i don’t sort out after him either. I end up just getting frustrated over nothing so it’s not worth it. Unless something pops up & I feel the desire to say something, I’m probably gonna be real quiet w/ him lol

    Congrats to Amalie Benjamin on her new gig at NHL.com:

    So, news: After 12 years (eek!), I’m leaving the Boston Globe. I’m headed for NHL.com, as a feature writer based in Boston.

    I don’t know what to think of this. It just confirms that the print medium is pretty much dead and all the good talent is being plucked for websites. NHL.com sucks and needs improvement. If they would change the design of the site back to what it was (and the app), I might actually read her stuff.

    I almost never go to NHL.com for articles, but I definitely will now.

    Yeah, pretty much.

    Bearly on Topic is embedded for you

    IW and I wrote about Cuts for a Cause. I have audio which will make it’s way to a certain podcast. By the way, how many Bruins blogs have a married couple doing reportage?

    You’ve turned into Meryl Streep?

    It’s really thrown off the whole week.

    I find that whenever I turn into Meryl Streep, it takes a couple of weeks to get back to normal.

    Of course it’s the engineering machine that’s left, so it’s the nastiest

    I hear that it’s the best bureaucracy even though India and GB are not far behind.

    Good Morning!

    This cold is over. Then it’s not. Then it’s over again. Now it’s not. Ugh.

    We semi-won a free 2-night hotel stay and dinner stipend. Only catch is that we have to get to North Conway to sit through some stupid 1.5 hour presentation. I think I’m on board with that plan.

    At the end of the presentation…. just say no!

    They’re not really selling something, per se. It sounds like this hotel up there was re-modeled recently and they’re just pimping it. So, whatever. I can ignore someone for and hour and a half. I ignore people for 8 hours a day at work!

    From what we’ve seen around here, I think it’s more like “All work and no play make Unstable live up to his name.”

    Good morning, friends!

    It’s shaping up to be an insane weekend. I hope I’ll have time for some hockey. I miss hanging out with you all on the regular. One of these days, I’ll be back on a more permanent basis.

    Hey All! It’s going to be way too nice to work today. Seems it’s always too hot, coid, rainy or sunny to work. I’m going to find the right weather for work. Someday….
