Morning Free Association, August 8

Hello. Have the Bruins started playing yet? No? Drats.

We only have 66 more days to go.

While I don’t usually check out Sports Illustrated for hockey, I happened upon a couple of articles that mention Bruins players:

This first one talks about the social media savvy of NHL players and includes our own Ryan Spooner. Sample tweets:

The second is about the undrafted players to watch for in the East.

The real shame here is that guy was in my town on Friday while I was waiting for my car to be repaired elsewhere. Dammit.

In other news:

Jeremy Lauzon suffered a near career-ending injury in April and returned to play for the Memorial Cup in May due to his “off the charts” compete level. He’s looking forward to camp in the Fall, and staying in Boston.

Bearly on Topic recorded a podcast yesterday, kinda. The Hockey Podcast Gods were not with us and decided to give us gifts called “Technical Difficulties”. So, we’re all going to have to wait one more week.

Your favourite Rhode Islander.

B-b-b-but, Mom lives in Rhode Island. Would you settle for second (still way ahead of the rest of my family!)?

Sit-rep: I have been instructed to do a printer model conversion (yay) but there’s no ink in it (real yay!) Only problem: I’m missing a bunch of stuff for it -_-. Open up the box and it’s missing all the tubing I need. Turns out I need to get it because it’s “bulk”. Never mind that the one I did last week had the tubing… God we can’t get anything consistent here any more. Not even over a week. Okay end rant. Back to the music & water.

My rec team is in free fall. We lost five in a row and we’re now 4-6-1.

Your team is never as good as it looks winning and never as bad as they look losing.
-auld hockey adage (from an olde hockey player).

Ouch. Did the douche-canoe teammates show up?

They did, but they were mostly quiet on this one.

Good Morning All! We’re home from our disc golf tournament. We should probably look for a senior league! Jo and I were matched against a young couple from Long Guyland. We played well, finishing one under. The guy in this couple kept throwing to within 10 feet of the target on every hole. 9 fucking birdies! We had three and that made us very happy. First round we played separately, but with the same result. It was fun and 1,200 sheckles were raised to fund the new course in Danbury.
Tuesday night we head to Charlemont, MA. Whitewater school Wednesday thru Friday and paddling all weekend. So pumped for five days on the river!
Coffee. Switching to seltzer soon.

Morning!

My wife and mother in law got in around 1045 last night. I didn’t get to sleep until after 1230. It’s going to be a long day.

Buongiorno famiglia!
bullet points!!

  • GV SOFTBALL WON A GAME HOLY SHIT WE ACTUALLY WON A GAMMMMMEEEEE!!!!!comment image
  • Spent from 10-4 Saturday sanding my deck. Got it finished & cleaned yesterday. Going to throw the first coat on tonight. God I cant wait for this project to be done
  • Went out to dinner with GH & IW Saturday night who graciously met Em & I in Concord. Many laughs and stories were exchanged.
  • As much fun as Bearly on Topic is, we should probably change our name to “6 fans who struggle with technology for 45 minutes then angerly talk about the Bruins” It’s never the same problem each time too. So fucking stupid. Technology is supposed to make our lives easier, not harder
  • Water and clock watching on tap today as I somehow do not have a printer to work on which means I get to float all day. http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-B70oaS-ZUiU/UXu4f5gG-xI/AAAAAAAALeM/JDAWfEAm1Hw/s1600/floating-hedgehog.gif
    Do you know how hard it is to look busy while not having anything to do?

    Ah. That would explain why I saw her post something from the Barley House! It all makes sense.

    And yes, I know how hard it is to look busy in that situation.

    Sounds like a solid weekend. Good job on the deck!

    carvinbass18
    Editor

    It really was. Thanks! I’m kind of concerned with the stain I bought because it’s one of those “deck restorers” and I don’t know too much about them. Just staining it though wouldn’t work out very well as it’s really beat up.

    Morning, peeps.

    I went out for a run last night and took one hell of a spill. I think I may have torn or even fractured something. I don’t know yet. YES, I’ll go to the doctor if I don’t feel better later…

    Hit the beach, a graduation party, and a last-second BBQ for my brother’s birthday, which none of us were invited to until Saturday night. I’m tired.

    Happy Monday, I guess.

    Yes. See a doctor. I did something nasty to my knee once and didn’t get it checked out and it resulted in months of discomfort and it was nearly 2 years before it was normal again.

    Ouch. At least you didn’t wipe out as bad as the cyclist in the olympics?

    Satan 81's Sister
    Editor

    Or the French gymnast who broke his leg on a vault landing? There’s a clip I never need to see again. Ever.

    IntentionallyWidenberg

    Yeah, that seems like a clip that I really do not want to look for.

    phonymahoney
    Editor

    I had to look for it. It was pretty cringey.

    Legs….legs aren’t supposed to look like that.

    Are you talking about the one that Leroy Jennkins’d his way into the wall as opposed to turning left like the rest of the pack?

    No. The woman who’s front wheel seized up and ended up in the hospital in bad shape.

    carvinbass18

    Oh no, i didn’t see that.

    Satan 81's Sister

    Oh man, it was a horrible crash. Concussion and three cracks in her spine.

    carvinbass18
    Editor

    holy shit that sucks

    Satan 81's Sister
    Editor

    Yeah, but after seeing that crash I’m happy with “she’s alive.”

    carvinbass18

    Ugh I really hope it’s not anything serious. Happy Monday in deed?

    Thanks!
    Thinking torn meniscus. I can put weight on it, but definitely can’t bend it to a right angle.

    Ouch! On the plus side, now is a good time to get sympathy from your work boyfriend. I think he needs to take care of you in your time of need.
