Morning Free Association 4/8/16

The Bruins managed to stay alive last night with a glorious win over Detroit.

The Flyers lost 4-3 to Toronto in overtime (WHY couldn’t the Leafs hang onto that lead in regulation?!).

Here are the possible scenarios for the weekend in hockey:

What’s on tap?

Finally, I found some work to do. I have to go to the brewery and get growlers filled. A tough job, but it must get done!!!! I might stay in to watch the Bs tomorrow and there had better be beer in the house if I do!

No. But Prince George was eliminated from the WHL playoffs, so he can be on for an ATO just right now. He still is unsigned by the Bruins

I had one of those by Crayola when I was 6. I used to teach my mother and grandmother grammar and science. Oddly enough, I never did my drawing that way.

This reminds me of the program I was in where we had to give presentations about our departments and we all went effects-crazy with our slides. *whoosh whoosh* “And here is our staff” *Graphic spins on to screen* “And here are my job responsibilities.”

Just a quick question as I am getting used to the new site…is there a way to navigate through new comments?

the german hammer
Admin

I think the easiest way is to sort by newest comments. “Sort by: ” is at the top right-hand side of the comments.

Ok will try that. Thank you….and dont stress once work picks up you wont have to worry about me posting large images etc

The general pattern is there’s a rush of comments in the morning, and by the time you get to the bottom of it, phony’s logged on and is making comments starting from the top again. Later in the day, there’s another rush of comments, and by the time you get to the bottom of all that, Muse has logged on and is making comments starting from the top again.

Good morning everyone. Good game, great effort and a great start for a change. That first goal was a nice shock to the system.

My lovely wife surprised me with takeout from my fav Italian spot and a nice bottle of wine and I am not feeling good today…

Now we are supposed to get another snow storm this weekend to close the course down for a few more days. I feel like I am chasing my tail over here

Sounds just about right. The snow is gone from here for the most part but I have a feeling that we won’t truly be away from snow until June since Spring must be preoccupied with Twitter or something.

Game Recap is up for those of you who missed it or want to relive the glory.

I am le tired today. I went to bed at 2am (READ MY RECAP!), woke up after 3, after 5, 5:30 to take Julio out, 6:30, 7:10, and 7:30. I even posted a comment or two somewhere in there while trying to decide to get up or not. Then, started drifting off in time for the my alarm to go off. Quite simply, this day can fuck off.

I’m glad i’m not the only one who had just a couple & felt like I drank way more. I only had 2 beers, but by 9:30 I could have sworn I drank a 12 pack of bud light.

Well, you shouldn’t have done that. Death needs a companion as well because it’s lonely being the Grim Reaper.

Now, you’d think Death’s dog would also be already dead and this problem couldn’t happen, but evidently I’m wrong there.

We rushed to open the course on March 18th because my bosses wanted to capitalize on the nice weather then now I have been here 26 straight days because they dont want hourly staff in when the course is closed.

A lot of doing this….http://undergrad.osu.edu/buckeyes_blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/Small-kitten-chasing-its-tail-do-not-know-the-cat-will-dizziness-it.gif

Boston should have gotten two powerplays a the end. One for each octopi thrown. If Florida cant do it (and the Bruins fans cant throw giveaway items) then fuck throwing a dead animal.

We dont even have a rivalry with the Red Wings but I hate them

DrHandgrenaid
Editor
DrHandgrenaid

Because its home ice, were that a PP, it would have gone to Detroit (shit on the ice delay of game is a penalty for the home team). Because it was obviously Detroit fans that tossed the cephalopods, thats why it was no penalty

That would have been Grade A bullshit if that caused Detroit powerplay.

Im just bringing it up because its so overlooked. I know its not realistic. I know the reason behind it, still pisses me off enough to mention the double standard. Does it show that I just really hate Detroit?

It only takes away from the Wings momentum when they score and octopuses come flying onto the ice. I think the peeps who had them last night were looking at the scoreboard and said “Wings are done and I am NOT bringing an octopus home.” So they threw them just to get rid of them.

Merriam – Webster says octopi or octopuses is okay. I’m pretty sure octopuses is more correct as the word has a greek origin rather than a latin one.

Gooooood Morning All! SO, why can’t the Hyde Bruins show up more often? I’m tired of those Jekyll Bruins..

Not much on tap today. Avoiding work, playing with dogs, photographing squirrels – that’s a pretty full day, right there. I may have to sneak a nap in there someplace.
