Morning Free Association, August 30 – Smells like team hockey

The Bruins Captain’s Practice sessions have begun.
Does this mean… Faux hockey is nigh?

Bruins who stumbled out of hibernation and made an appearance were Torey Krug, Noel Acciari, John-Michael Liles, Adam McQuaid, Frank Vatrano, and David Krejci.

In fact, I just want to post this Tweet to see these words in writing:


Oooooooo yeaaaahhhhh, that’s the stuff…

So we’ve started the Captain’s practices, but without any captains? No Zdeno Chara? No Saint Patrice of Bergeron? We’ve only got 6 guys here so far, led by part-time Assistant Captain David Krejci. We love ya, Matrix, but isn’t this supposed to be Z’s gig? Of course, this begs the question – with Kells gone, does Krejci get the ‘A’ full time? Or just a revolving door? For that matter, who replaces Kelly as ‘The Most Canadian Man in the World’? I hope that there are a few more guys who are going to participate in the upcoming sessions.

While in town, Vatrano, Hayes, McQuaid & Krejci were spotted helping out the WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund telethon (Donation line: 1-877-738-1234)

Yeah, it’s only a baby step, but it’s a hell of a lot more hockey than the ‘My tractor is bigger than yours‘ stuff we’ve been getting lately.

I have a coworker who shares the name and birthday with a known fugitive. Security checkpoints with him are no fun.

That is most unfortunate.

Good Morning All!
Late to the party. I got out early to trim a hedge while it was in the shade. Mission accomplished!
Single game tonight.

Good morning, friends!

I am currently on hold with an IT department. I got another adjuncting gig at a different institution, and I’m setting up my online account. It’s super exciting. But, hey, it’s more money, so that’s a good thing.

How’re you all doing this fine Tuesday?

Also, this is the worst elevator music that I’ve ever been forced to listen to. UGH.

Ball golf, we have a fundraiser for a scholarship fund ever year that i participate in. I did pretty ok seeing how i was playing with a broken toe on my pivot foot. Still came in last place….i have certain team members that would rather keep our “most honest score trophy” than lose it by playing well….or playing at all.

I went to bed early and slept late. Why am I tired?

Same here. Got a solid eight hours but feel like I could use about four more.

Morning all. The line down my monitor, which had been purple, is green today. Nice to see it’s mixing it up a bit.

Satan 81's Sister

And it’s purple again.

We throw monitors out like, once a week, maybe I can use the portal to get you one?

Satan 81's Sister

I love that the portal is a thing.

We still have to see if tje portal works both ways, or in other ways.

Morning.

There is some QC test occurring in the office area that involves beeping at a quasi regular interval. It’s driving me crazy. This is the third straight day…..

Yellow jacket nest, day four: I still haven’t attacked it. Managed to safely mow the lawn then inadvertently hit the nest quickly with the hose. They were NOT happy. I was a safe distance away at least.

I can almost smell the hockey coming. And can’t stop laughing at the two tractor gifs above.

Just note the spot and hit ’em at night. I finished mine off last night.

My garden fence is infested with False Widow spiders – they eat wasps! I’ll collect some up and send them to you if you like smile

The downside is if they bite you it feels like a bee sting (apparently – I haven’t tested it), but at least they are easier to avoid than wasps.

Koko is in action in Russia this evening (or lunchtime for you guys). He is on Datsyuk and Kovalchuk’s team, SKA. He’s played one game so far, 10mins TOI and one SOG.

ciao!
First off. Joe Morrow’s tractor is the bomb-diggity and you can’t convince me other wise. I have been on again off again awake since 5 this morning thanks to Pippi barking. I should have just gotten up then as opposed for trying to sleep for 45 more minutes

Venturing out today without bullet points and a cup of coffee. Other than that, I WANT HOCKEY
