There was no NHL hockey game last night.

What did happen yesterday?

Blues coach Ken Hitchcock was re-upped for another year. 1 year. A stunning display of faith in the coach who led them deeper into the playoffs then they had been in 15 years. Tough crowd.
harumph

Meanwhile the Ducks are still looking for their next coach:


shocked

Next, to virtually no one’s surprise, reports out of Russia claim that P-Bruin Alexander Khokhlachev has signed a contract with KHL team SKA St. Petersburg. My take – it’s a shame the Bruins won’t get anything in return for him, but there weren’t many openings at center and Spoons did much more with his opportunities with the big club than Koko did. If the B’s had read the tea-leaves correctly, perhaps they could have traded him for a few magic beans. Too bad.
Move along

And finally, the Department of Player Safety decided that there would be no need for a hearing for Patrick Marleau on a controversial hit in Monday night’s Stanley Cup final game.

Dept of Player Safety determines no Supplemental Discipline is warranted for Patrick Marleau’s hit on Bryan Rust in Game 1 of the SCF. Main points of contact: shoulders, chest. Rust low, off-balance, reaching.
Marleau does not “pick” the head, elevate or extend. Head contact is with Marleau’s back.

Pittsburgh fan reaction was somewhat predictable:
Rabble Rabble!

Thank you hockey twitter, you never disappoint.
all this can be horrible

Instead of moving 1 electrical drop to it’s original location, we just moved two 8000lb printers that now have to be re-leveled and backtracked for 2 hours to get back on track. When I asked the supervisor why not just move the drop back, and why did it get moved in the first place. He told me “there isn’t enough line” Fine. Play dumb, I hope we miss every deadline now because of your fucking incompetence.

I need to rebuild my resume & get out of here.

ANNNNND ANOTHER AWESOME THING TODAY:

We had a huge electrical issue in the warehouse last night and no trucks are on the road today… however, the orders are picked, so if someone picks up a same day order and their stuff was supposed to go today but is actually going tomorrow, it’s going anyway – the train is on the tracks and there’s no way to stop it.

EVERYTHING IS AWESOME.

Morning all! Got this email from my boss:

Client is applying for $1m with 25 year term. I left his and his wife’s apps on your chair, they are in mixed order because the wind blew my pile onto the floor, sorry about that.

Going to be that sort of day.

Just use that as an excuse if you’re late on anything today: “Oh, sorry. I had to untangle your mess before I could do anything. Threw the whole day off.”

IT’S SO MUCH FUN AND NOT BORING AT ALL!

I’m 40 years old, in good health, and considering a life insurance policy for the benefit of my wife and one-year old. Would you rather get a whole life insurance policy, or a term life insurance policy and “invest the difference” in the market?

My boss is on a phone call right now but I will have him call you so you can discuss which option is best suited to your needs.

YUP. IT’S AN EASY JOB BECAUSE EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS IT TOO AND IS WILLING TO LEARN IF THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND.

Good Morning!

It took me over an hour to get a medicine cabinet on the wall last night. This was the third attempt. It’s a wonder I didn’t throw a hammer through it. It’s done though!

Other than that, slow news day for me.

We do, too. We are a minority, you and us.

But screw the rest of the world. It’s my house.

The lighting in this picture really downplays how loud this color is.

Steven Wright of Red Sox got me looking up clips of Steven Wright the comedian which dug up this short film he did which won an Oscar:

I’m not entirely sure why it won an Oscar, but it’s pretty funny and I’m glad Steven Wright (comedian) won an Oscar.

Steven Wright’s (the baseball player) knuckleball also makes me laugh like the comedian. Like this gem the other day:

The best comment related to this:

Big League pitcher, hitter, catcher, and umpire. Four highly trained, world class professionals. Four people who have no fucking idea where that pitch is headed.

I could watch that pitch all day. Love how it looks like it just stops for a fraction of a second.
