Morning Free Association 4/28/16 – Out with the old, In with the New

Last night, we watched the beginning of round two of the NHL playoffs.
Then we watched round one of the NHL playoffs.
Cuz, reasons.

Congratulations to the Predators for advancing. We must now choke down our bile at seeing popular players James Neal and Mike Ribeiro move forward, and console ourselves with the fact the Corey Perry, Ryan Kesler, and David Perron have been eliminated.


Flushed Away!

And for the Ladies, Roman Josi

Roman Josi

Game One of Nashville vs San Jose is TOMORROW. Nice scheduling forethought there, NHL.

Let’s just review – because it’s fun…

In case you missed it,

The US came in 3rd in the IIHF under-18 World Ice Hockey Championship, beating Canada 10-3 in the medal round.
1. Finland
2. Sweden
3. USA
(4th – Canada)

Good morning!

Sis spends ten minutes on hold. Does Sis spend any of those ten minutes pulling up the info she needed for the call? Of course not.

Good Morning!

    The recap I wrote for last night’s Preds-Ducks game is up. You should read it because it is very special.
    I’m glad to see different teams advancing in the SCP.
    I’m glad I got a chance to watch the Preds defense. I love it, well, except for that third pairing which makes me cringe. Every team has one of those, right?
    I was supposed to get my hair done yesterday but ended up walking my HD’s dog. He’s a huge Weimaraner so that was nice. Anyway, there was confusion about what was supposed to happen. Today I go back to get it cut and dyed cobalt blue. I have missed my fun-coloured hair for the better part of twenty years now. So much excite.

So unordered lists are totally not working for me now.

Now I think I gotta go listen me some Social D Live at the Roxy.

If you walked down the street with blue hair you was gonna get in a fight with about 5 angry construction workers, or the local college football team, rednecks or cops.
Yeah, sometimes they kicked our ass, but you know what? Sometimes we beat the fuck out of ’em!
That’s right I was about 4 foot fuckin 8 and I hit the biggest motherfucker there!

Ha ha, good ol’ Social D. It’s funny that I understand their music now than when I was a young proto-goth/ post-punk kid.

And my hair is pretty glorious.

Every time I get disgruntled about Haggs or KPD, I remember that Toronto has this chucklefuck:

The NHL season is over in LA, Manhattan, Chicago, Minnesota, Boston, Colorado, Detroit, Buffalo, Philly, all of Canada. Who watches now?

Can someone do the right thing and feed this dickweed to a bear already?

I’m thinking the answer to “who watches now?” is Hockey Fans, but I could be way off base.

Hahahaha. Oh my. My bracket is a disaster. Teams that should be remaining according to my bracket (strikeouts indicate I was wrong on that one):

Stars
Blackhawks
Ducks
Kings
Capitals
Rangers
Panthers
Lightning.

Also, I did not get a single “# of games” prediction correct. And the Ducks were going to the finals. Whoops.

the german hammer
Admin

I had several series # games correct. But, I also picked the Hawks and Kings and FancyCats so bracket is busted.

DrHandgrenaid
Editor

I had the Ducks and the Cats, but otherwise did pretty good. (only nailed # of games in the Stars-Wild

carvinbass18

My east is hosed with picking the Rangers to get to the Final

DrHandgrenaid

Not a great move there

Bold is the Rangers-Blues Final I got going. I’m still 2nd in the league though, so I got that going for me which is nice

Good Morning All! It’s an extra coffee, extra bourbon morning! I should go back to bed after the late night double header, but i have to get the mower running before it’s a jungle out there. It’s turning over now, so I’m halfway there…. found a bad fuse holder – a little rust inside. Still no spark, but I should be able to solve that this morning with the right amount of bourbon and caffeine.

Congrats to Josi and the Preddy cats! I had the Ducks going all the way. Bracket busted! (if i had a bracket to bust) Isles > lightning, me thinks, but i am of the busted bracket. What the fuck do I know?

Can’t wait to get back on the water Sunday. Heading to one of my favorite rivers (Mongaup River, Port Jervis, NY) I modified the outfitting and boat is now super comfy. It’s already conquered some big stuff this year.

No games tonight! Yay!

Oh, I forget if I asked – what do you like for bourbon?

I like bourbon, period. I have some Jefferson Reserve that is pretty smokin’. Also, Phony gave me some Four Roses small batch that is different than most bourbons, but very nice! I think my favorite all time was some Woodford Reserve that had been aged in Pinot Noir barrels. That was out of this world!!

Satan81

Jefferson Reserve is mighty nice. I liked Black Maple Hill a lot until they switched distillers. My go-to sippin’ bourbon is Buffalo Trace, but current favorites are Johnny Drum Private Stock and Colonel E.H. Taylor. I like Bulleit a lot, too, but the price has gone up a lot.

I’m looking forward to getting off the water and onto the whisky at the end of May.

good morning

  • What the hell happened in Tampa last night? I put the game on 6 minutes in and it was 1-1, watched some lost for a couple episodes & it was 4-1. Woke up checked scores and it was 5-3. Goals much?
  • Glad Nashville is moving on. I have more hate for the two players on the Preds than the 3 on the Ducks, but I like more Nashville players than Ducks, plus Preds jersey > Ducks jersey all day every day (unless they go back to the mighty ducks teal & purple)
  • I hate 7am meetings. My shift starts at 7, so I need to be early to get to the meeting on time and that’s really frigging stupid. It doesn’t even give me a chance to put my stuff where it needs to go.
  • Boss yelled at me when I walked into the meeting, because naturally I was 2 minutes late. In his defense though, I’ve only been late to the weekly meeting for 5 meetings straight….. Maybe I should get up earlier?

    Please, yes, do this.

    In all honesty, it sounds like your boss is a dick. Not just for this story. Just in general.

    by yelled, i do mean “you know this meeting starts at 7am Tony” in a super sarcastic tone, not like full blown screaming lol. He is though kinda, but he’s better than my supervisor from last year. He lets me actually work & leaves me alone to do my job instead of hounding me all g-damn day. I’ll take snide sarcasm over hovering complaining I’m not working fast enough.

    I attended a Father John Misty concert last night. The venue was sold out so it was horribly hot and cramped, but I enjoyed the show. The festivities didn’t allow me to go to bed until 1am.

    Also, the AC at work is not working. When I clocked out yesterday, it was 87 inside. Right now it’s 84. They better get this thing working.

    That sound miserable. You have my sympathies.

    DrHandgrenaid

    You live in the south. No AC should count as major human rights violation.

    It could be worse. I could live in Florida or Louisiana with no AC. That’s torture.

    Good Morning.

    That’s all I got. Burned out from work and the house at the moment, so I’m taking a break from that tonight to do bills and apply for more jobs.

    …it’s going to be a long month. Is it June yet?
