Well, the Conference Finals have begun, and the Blues have a 1-0 lead over the Sharks.

There’s not much more to say other than “sorry this is late”.
egagh
Oops.

What’s on tap?

Good Afternoon All! Great weekend! Cabin on the lake was extremely rustic. I’ve seen third world housing that compared favorably. Still, beautiful lake, no cell service and Jo. Also, bourbon!!! and a growler of Red Lantern (irish red) from our local.
Lot’s of local rain meant an extra wild ride on the river. I could hear Jo yelling “Fuck, fuck, fuck” through some of the rougher sections. No carnage, though. Which is great. Also, there was a pair of eagles that flew over us several times and allowed us to paddle pretty close while they were sitting in trees. Very cool!
We stayed late at the cabin, coffee at the water, then disc on the way home.
Been planting and weeding this morning. A nice way to start the week.

Good Morning!

Move went well. There are now boxes everywhere AND our furniture. I also am finally done with a vendor here at work. Meaning for the first time in two work days I get to sit down. That’s nice.

Summer C2 hockey starts Sunday! I receive my team issued socks and jersey Thursday.

No tye-die socks for this league?

The Once and Future Bagel Bruin

The team actually bought socks so I wouldn’t wear the tie die socks

The Once and Future Bagel Bruin

My tie died socks became washed out after one wash. The “cotton” hockey socks are actually polyester and tie-dye kits just don’t work on polyester very well. They now looks like cotton candy.

That is unfun of them

Small Batch – I approve of this team name!

Local bar sponsors the team! The owner always brings Miller Lite after the game.

Morning all! Red Sox hit their run quota again yesterday. Ortiz is still a god among men.
Is it time to go back to bed?
Oh and it’s snowing. I am not amused.

carvinbass18

Ugh fuck snow so hard.

Also mucho thanks on watching the Spanish GP with me Sunday. Monaco in two weeks is going to be a blast to watch.

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

You’re welcome! Thanks for putting up with my complete lack of knowledge. Mimosas again for Monaco?

carvinbass18

Yes! Nothing like that good 8am drinking before softball starts

Satan 81's Sister
Editor

I’ll be sure to join you!

It just wont be the huge bottles of booze like the winners get wink

That’s really what sold me. grin

Ortiz’s Jagr-esque old man superpowers make him retiring after this season rather difficult to believe.

Is it bad that I assume the entire team is on steroids?

Satan 81's Sister

I assume that about most sports.

Good morning
Got a bunch done this weekend. Put up some more drywall and starting mudding on Saturday, followed up by my first preseason softball game of the year. Holy shit are my legs sore, this fat guy was not made to run. Have to leave at 10 today for a Dr’s appointment, and I couldn’t be happier about that. It’s official, this place has gone 100% bezerk, and when they decide (if they decide) to move to Manchester, I’m not going.

Happy to see the right teams are leading their series 1-0 coming in to Monday. Memorial Cup starts on Wednesday so be on the look out for updates on Jake DeBrusk and maybe Jeremy Lauzon.

What’s on tap today

Happy to see the right teams are leading their series

This is inaccurate. The Sharks do not currently lead their series

Except not snark, because I genuinely feel that way. Fuck you David Backes, I do not care for you nor have I ever.

I honestly have no idea where I got my fandom of the Blues. I like Shattenkirk mostly for the name, the jerseys are pretty nice. This year it had a lot to do with them beating the Hawks so I’m sticking with it all the way, but even with that not being the case, I just enjoy watching the Blues (minus Ott) play. I won’t be upset if the Sharks win though.

Satan 81's Sister

This year it had a lot to do with them beating the Hawks

This is why I’m rooting for the Blues.

DrHandgrenaid

Useful idiots. #TeamJumbo

Satan 81's Sister

Idiots?

DrHandgrenaid
Editor

I really don’t care about the Blues, I don’t want them to win, but I respect their utility in eliminating the Hawks, ergo, useful idiots.

carvinbass18
Editor

I read that as calling us idiots at first & thought “well okay then” but duh. Your reasoning is way more logical & obvious than my dumb brain lol

Morning folks, howzitgoin?

Went to a craft beer festival on Saturday, which was pretty good. Most of the breweries in the province were there (although oddly, not the two more or less run by the guy Nash who is more or less the Nova Scotia Beer Baron).

Good times. Had a couple really excellent beers from a brewery called Meander River, which I had heard of, but never seen in the city, and was superb. Gold Stars all around.

carvinbass18

Woo Beer!

DrHandgrenaid
Editor

It was great stuff. $40 for admission, a glass (an actual, nice, Belgian-style beer glass, and 16(!!) 4 oz taster tickets)

So not all that far off from the cost of 4 pints of decent beer at most brew pubs anyway. Win.

The Once and Future Bagel Bruin

The glass plus the beer was surely worth $40. Good buy!

DrHandgrenaid
Editor

Would ave been $30 if we’d made up our mind earlier than last Tuesday. Oh well.
