Morning Free Association 4/19/16 – Insurrection!

People shot at each other in Lexington yesterday.

Yesterday was Patriots’ day in Massachusetts. The day we celebrate getting an extra day to do our tax forms.
There was tons of stuff going on yesterday, but not all of it in the world of ice hockey.

Things that happened yesterday in NOT HOCKEY:

Obviously a Lexington & Concord battle reenactment happened
(see above)


The Boston Marathon was run successfully yesterday:

Including Marathon Bombing survivors:

The Ethiopians kicked our asses AGAIN! Why does this keep happening to us? I guess I’ll just console myself with another pint of Ben & Jerry’s.


Then there were NHL Playoffs to watch

Ovechkin scored:


Twice:

Feel bad about how your playoff bracket is going? It could be worse…

And other peculiarities:

Shippin up to Boston” played in land-locked Minneapolis with no Boston Bruins in playoffs. So Jordie Benn & Charlie Coyle start throwing punches. #MINvsDAL

SAP’s bracket HAS to be a joke.

SAP is clearly a joke in general.

As a company that uses SAP as it’s inventory software control. Yes. It is a disgusting joke

Hey, I’m back! I had a great time at the Roadburn Festival, apart from the very end where I got hit with a beer bottle in the back of the head by a drunken idiot who wanted to fight me. Witnesses called the cops faster than I could and the guy was hauled away in handcuffs. I’m physically just fine, but I’ll stop by the doctor’s office tomorrow to have him check me out (no concussion symptoms so far).

Oh and I owe a NYR-PIT recap. Will do that even if one was already done, if only for the practice.

Shit, you got bottled? Yikes. I *nearly* got cleaned with a heavy pint glass at a show a few years ago, but some other poor bastard got in the way and caught it in the back of his dome, so I was just in the cone of beer and broken glass. Count myself real lucky there.

Yeah, it was outside a bar where one of the bands was playing. The people involved weren’t festival attendees. Just drunk and looking for trouble, I guess. It’s likely the most expensive beer that guy has ever bought.

I got my head checked after an incident like that, but they didn’t find anything!

Did you get it checked by a jumbo jet? I hear that’s not easy – but nothing is.
Woo hoo!

Are you sure that wasn’t Dorchester?

Good Morning All! Just chillin’ this morning. Doubleheader tonight!

Puppy dogs in the house for a few days!

Hey, it could have happened in both places!

One year, I swear I’m going to do ALL the Patriots’ Day activities.
I’ll probably DIE when Patriots’ night arrives, but it will be worth it. I am a Bostonian, damn it.

Morning all. Had a dream the planet was being invaded by mutant aliens. I am very tired this morning after running away from lots of mutant aliens.

Good morning.

  • Didn’t watch any hockey last night other than youtube videos of hockey trash talking / fights / highlights from the season. Fun stuff.
  • Going to be a long day today as I’m working on a customer return printer. Always a bad sign when you’re told “Oh it’s not so bad, I took a look at it already”. They managed to spill solvent under the rubber spill mats. How does that even happen?
  • ICYMI: https://bobbytobergy.com/2016/04/18/prospects-round-up-april-18th/
  • Coffee, water & acetone fumes on tap today. Let’s go Blues tonight!

  • My cousin/roomie ran the marathon. She came in 26,414th. I keep hearing “I want to diiiiiiie” coming from the other room.
  • I am inexplicably tired from watching other people do things; like seriously exhausted. I only had three drinks yesterday, so it’s not like I’m hung over or anything like that.
  • Hit Castle Island, then the Four’s, then Kenmore, then MJ O’Connor’s, then back to the Four’s to get my car. Maybe I did actually do things.
  • Wanted to take today off, but that’s an asshole move given that yesterday was a holiday.
  • I watched zero hockey yesterday, but I saw that awful hit by Bellemare on Orlov.
  • Gonna be super busy at work today. Like, super super busy. Boo. Also, yay!
  • Swim class tonight. Fuck that noise.
  • How are we?

    I watched zero hockey yesterday, but I saw that awful hit by Bellemare on Orlov.

    That’s about all I saw live last night, too. He’s sitting a few at the beginning of next season, no?

    carvinbass18

    oh yeah he is.

    Although watching the replay (didn’t see it live) it looks like he’s trying to ride Orlov into the boards, the “bear hug” type play but with Orlov so low Bellemare can’t get low enough to pull the move off & just drives him head first into the boards. His concern immediately after the hit is commendable IMO. Funny how the Caps scrum after doesn’t even include Bellemare

    Yeah, that was really weird. After the hit or Orpik earlier, I think the Caps were just done with the flyers as a team.

    I don’t think the hit on Orpik was even close to bad, to be honest.

    I agree, it seemed clean-ish.

    But the hit doesn’t have to be bad. The result was bad. Combine that with a bad hit later and MORTAL KOMBAT!

    You bought a bus station bench? Did it include the hobo pee?

    I view it as 1982 middle school chic.

    But I really bought this. It will on on the patio.

    I suppose the next question is why? Its basically the least appealing seating arrangement outside a row of rusty spikes

    Morning. I’m apparently going to the Sox game tomorrow, so that’s cool.

    I needed this mug yesterday. And today. And pretty much forever.
