Morning Free Association, August 3

Remember how much we liked drafting?

I mean in the past couple of years after hiring Keith Gretzky as the director of Amateur Scouting? Well, the Bruins are going to have to hire someone else since the Oliers have hired Gretzky as an Assistant General Manager as of Tuesday afternoon. Sure, it’s a promotion with an up-and-coming club. But I can’t help feeling a bit burned by Peter Chiarelli raiding the Bruins cupboard.

Really

How did I find out about it? Through the FakeOilersGM Twitter account, of course, as one does.

Anyway, no replacement has been named as of yet.


On a side note, after a three-week break, Bearly on Topic will be recording this weekend. It being the dead of summer,

dead of summer

we’re open to conversation topics. Is there anything you would like us to tackle? Let us know!

Good afternoon, Bruins fans! The folks at Days of Y’Orr have an idea that I can get on board with:

One can only hope that the Bruins look at our friend @kluedeke29 to fill the scouting position wink— Days of Y'Orr (@DaysofYOrr) August 3, 2016

What do I want to listen to the rest of the day?

Hmmmm… For mellow, I suggest the band “gates.” For metal, I suggest the band “Fallujah” or “The Contortionist.”

I will agree with Contortionist.

Too lazy for bullet points. Deal.

-Asked my crush to go to a Sox game with me. He said yes, provided his trainer will allow him to reschedule. So, that’s a plus, because he could have just pretended he was busy, right? Right.
-Is it hockey season yet?
-I need to get my skates sharpened, stat. I only did a few laps last night because I couldn’t grip shit.
-My coffee was lovely again, but I’m too busy drinking a lottttttttttttt of water to get more.
-I really need to clean my room tonight. I have definitely been saying this for weeks on end. Maybe longer. Oops.
-We’re doing OK in our walking contest. A guy I work with (not on my team) walked to my office in Sullivan Square from his house in Belmont today. I have a feeling he’s going to beat me.

You should totally get your skates sharpened for 3/8.

I don’t know, man. I went from 1/2″ to 3/4″. 3/8 is like, crazy bitey to me. I haven’t tried it though.

3/8 is hell. Don’t do it

Morning All!

Keith Gretzky – The Good One.

I somehow tweaked my knee yesterday and had to limp through my double. I need to do it again tonight. Ice and rest today, plus Ibuprofen.

I used to play hockey in Katonah, NY during summer. At the beginning of August some Rangers would come skate with us and stay til camp opened. One of our goalies was Ted Sator’s secretary. Leech, Nichols, Marcel Dionne, Pierre LaRouche, Knuckles, Ulf Dahlen, Tony Granato, Richter, VanBiesbrouk – just some of the Rangers that would show. I need that to get me through the doldrums this year! I’m still not a fan of the Rags.

Those names remind me how long ago that was.

Bulletless bullet points rollin’ on!

Replacing the engine on my mower today. Just what the knee needs – rolling around on the cement floor all morning.

Morning, who am I kidding? I’ll be finishing up tomorrow!

Coffee, because I haven’t given it up yet. Bourbon, because I will never give it up!

That is awesome!

Vanbiesbrouck is the only NHLer to have all five vowels in his last name. I loved his Panthers mask. Also, AMERICA!

So I have a coworker (my crush’s boss) who is trying to get me to attend Paul Stewart’s referee school. I would LOVE to, but my skating just isn’t good anymore. I don’t trust me.

I hate that. Then it comes back at 4 AM, still drunk and covered with Adobe Flash, and it is groggy & surly the next day.

Internet was definitely hungover on my laptop this morning. Slooooooooooooooooooooooooooow. Apparently I’m hungover because I started typing this post about fifteen minutes ago, got sidetracked, and forgot I was about to reply to you.
