Morning Free Association, August 9

Everyone who was involved in making the following video should feel bad.

 

Making Bruins prospects say these old tropes to mimic the Boston accent, whether they are local grown (Ryan Donato, Ryan Fitzgerald) or not, is annoying. There has to be some other way to rib the good people of Massachusetts. I mean, expecting these young men, most of which have spent little time in Boston, to be able to perfect the accent when professional actor and Bostonian Matt Damon can’t is just asking too much.

What I learned from the video:

  • Zane McIntyre is a dork
  • Malcolm Subban does have a bit of his older brother PK’s personality. Also, he seems to be in good health after his horrible laryngeal injury.
  • Ryan Fitzgerald does not sound like either of my brothers-in-law, who also grew up in North Reading.
  • Ryan Donato just looks like he’s from Boston, in that I’ve seen a lot of kids that look like him. And he sounds like it, too.
  • Brandon Carlo is blonder than I thought. Also, he looks like he should start surfing.
  • In Other News:

    Former Bruin Craig Janney has been elected to the Us Hockey Hall of Fame.

    Only

    days/ hours/ minutes/ seconds until the start of the season.

    Hey, Zane McIntyre isn’t dorky, he’s terminally Minnesotan. He blends right in there.
    Love the dark framed glasses on him.

    I don’t do bullet points. I do STARS!

    * Classes begin Monday. I’ve been in a classroom since 2008. I’m only taking three classes, but I am nervous. I have a full time job too!
    * Today we start the roll out of a new supplemental insurance. I’ve had three people ask me why we are ending our health insurance. People become paranoid when we offer them stuff.

    Hi friends!

    -I am barely awake.
    -Coffee has been brewed.
    -It’s actually overcast in El Paso.
    -I’m going to be ignoring writing an updated syllabus today and playing No Man’s Sky, because I’m an adult.
    -Michael Phelps’ mean mug at the Olympics last night was priceless.
    -The Boston accent is awesome. And people who try to mock it generally can’t do it.
    -I really should work on this syllabus, but the universe calls.

    OH!

    -And Tim Tebow playing baseball is about the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard. Except for Tim Tebow trying to play NFL quarterback, that is.

    Someone who is 73 years old? At least it wasn’t in nickles and dimes that the person continually drops?
