Morning Free Association 4/7/16

Thanks for nothing, Jakub!

Good morning, morning…

Garfield
This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, but the Flyers fell flat on their faces last night, losing 3-0 to the Red Wings. Useless, as usual.


So, where does that leave us?



We’re now sitting just outside of the playoff picture with 91 points and two games to go. Philadelphia also has 91 points and less regulation and overtime wins (ROWs), but the Flyers have a game at hand on us.


The Bruins are looking at two must-win games. The Wings game tonight is huge. If the Bruins lose, forget about it. Dust off your baseball card collection, and buy some peanuts and Cracker Jacks, and most importantly, root, root, root for the Red Sox – if they don’t win, it’s a shame (somebody has to win).


Cv racket jacks

Who do you think the Eastern Conference playoff teams will be? If the Bruins make it, how far do they go?

Go get some coffee and get back to me.

Emergency basis he was recalled yesterday….apparently one of the lines at practice was Spooner, Krejci, Eriksson so who knows he might be line 3 or 4 center tonight

I need to refill my mini-growlers at Domhof here in Speyer, Germany before the game.

Golf Course just outside of Hamilton ONT. With the weather over the last week we have either been covered in ice or snow. Should be open again Monday which will be just in time to miss playoff games or just in time to distract me from how the season ended.

Funny that you should do this. Yesterday when I was planning out tonight’s game threads, I came up with a couple of song pairings. Tune in to find out what they were. Hint: not these, although Hüsker Dü > Diarrhea Planet.

Yeah, that’s just you. I loved Hüsker Dü and am old enough to have been alive when they all recorded together and didn’t hate each other as much as they do now; make no mistake, they hated each other. I listened to part of that track you posted and it just doesn’t do anything for me. *shrug*

I just always loved their sound…like pop punk. Can’t believe someone once told me “it wasn’t me” to say I like them.

Awhile ago I saw this Bob Mould tribute show…I just wanted to see Ryan Adams play, but Dave Grohl was also there and he just killed it with Bob Mould, too.

Not surprised, only because the Red Sox game is at 6. Would be weird to start the first game of the night on the second channel.

I don’t think we have the limit anymore since I’ve been able to fix comments after 5 minutes. Then again, maybe I just have special powers.

Also, I can edit other people’s posts. Can anyone else do that?

While I like yours and am sick of the Shia LeHowevereyouspellhisname one, I would like to point out mine has Cary Grant in it. It’s from the original The Bishop’s Wife.

Cary. Grant.

Which reminds me, we need to have a Cary Grant movie day. Perhaps, sooner rather than later.

In at least some cases you can just cut those dangly bits off – or leave’em & let them show up as text next to the image. Sort of like that little “v” by the bottom right corner of Muffinman’s gif.

A few things:

  • I’m going to open up the thread early tonight. That way people can mingle, invoke prayers to the Hockey Gods, grumble, try out your thematic gif array, chatter, and anything else. This means that the lines might not be up right away and it will be a living thread. (Night of the Living Thread!) Even if you won’t be with us for the game, you can pop in and tell us what you’re drinking.
  • I know that this game is super important and I’m going to try to make this evening as fun as possible. It’s not that I’m in denial, I just want to have a fun set of threads.
  • I need to build my shrine to the Hockey Gods.
  • I’m nervous about a vet appointment for Julio today since we still don’t know what’s up with him.
  • Can we just skip the rest of April and get to May already?
  • Also, bring your A-Game tonight

    Have you guys officially closed. Is it for real true life yours?

    UnstableElement

    UnstableElement

    Closing is on April 22nd. The home inspection is complete and the repair addendum signed-off. They have NO housing contingency bullshit they can pull on us. Our financing is approved pending the appraisal (which I’m surprised we haven’t heard back on yet). Pretty much the only thing that could scuttle at this point is if we do the final walk-through and they trashed the place (highly unlikely).

    So I’d say it’s pretty much all set.
