Morning Free Association, September 2: You and Me and Everybody You Know

We’re going to take a break from the onslaught of Bruins news (yawn) and talk about us. You and me and everybody we know.¬†

I mean, I was tempted to just talk about Pokemon Go or ¬†football (please Jimmy G, do more than stand around being handsome), but neither of those things are why we’re really here. As much as I love football, I get plenty of football talk with random strangers in real life (at the park, in the grocery store, in the stands at Gillette telling a Dolphins fan to SHUT IT (true story!)) and Dr. Medievalist is good for some Pokemon chatter in the comments, so we’ll keep it there.

Anyway, I want to thank those of you who have joined us on this long journey to our new home. You (yes,you!) have made this a special experience for all of us Oyster Crackers! We are all Oyster Crackers!

Stefon Thank You

We’re going to keep at it, improving our game, starting around the World Cup of Hockey and ending somewhere near the Stanley Cup. This is going to be our first full-season in our new barn and it’s going to be Patricilicious Bergytastic!

(Sorry for the Duncan Keith. Not sorry for the John Tavares. Slightly sorry for the poor line delivery. Never sorry for the Bergymeister.)

We’re thinking of having a B2B Fantasy Hockey League this season and want to gauge the interest level. You can feel free to comment about that below.

Hockey is on the horizon…we can almost smell it. And of it hasn’t aired out it’s gear over the summer, it’s going to be really ripe.

Have a great weekend and we’ll see you on Tuesday!

I’m taking classes at the local community college. I’m taking elementary Spanish. The course claims to be robust and intense for an easy class. The teacher is fantastic and I’m learning a lot, but I was amazed how little homework we had. Today I was reminded he posts homework online on a special Spanish lab website. Oh poop. I have a lot of homework to complete by Wednesday.

I just spent 5 minutes too long troubleshooting a problem that didn’t actually exist because this dummy forgot to plug a cable back in. Can I go home now?

He has a brother named Hugetavious.

Hughtavious. I just googled it. It is true. Wow.

Would I lie about something as awesome as being named “Hughtavious”?

Oh, no, I definitely trust the source. The subject, however, still defies belief.

Losing a buddy today. He’s not my dog, but I’ve spent so much time with him over the last 14 years that we really bonded. I’ll miss the little shit.

I am not crying….. it’s just a fuckin’ dog. Jeez! (best Napoleon Dynamite voice)

This dog really loved Jo-Anne more than anyone. I just came back from a last visit. He has kidney failure and is just old. He was tired, but snuggled a lot.

Thanks for the kind thoughts. He was a real buddy. Hard to get to know, but once he took a shine to you….

Sorry for your loss. Just because you weren’t his owner doesn’t mean he wasn’t your friend.

Morning!

Going camping this weekend. There will be smores. And beer. Then a party on Sunday. Probably with LOTS of beer.

I’d be in on a league again.

Greenfield State Park in NH. Less than an hour from home, but in a non touristy area. Makes for a nice time.

I’m totally up for a fantasy league. I recommend a weekly head-to-head league with playoffs over a straight-up points league since it keeps people more involved. In a points league, typically someone gets ahead and you never can catch them.

Agreed. Roto is the worst

All-in on a weekly h2h. Also, if people would be interested in all at trying to start a keeper league….

Yeah. I was much more into the H2H than roto.

Then again, part of my apathy last year was d also due to community-gedon that occurred mid season.

DrHandgrenaid

DrHandgrenaid

yeah, those leagues suffered from continuing with participants from both factions after the kablooie happened

How is Narcos? Em and I just finished watching the season 3 finale of Peaky Blinders (which left me suuupper pissed) and we need a new show.

I like it. Not the best show ever made but I got into it because who doesn’t like drug lords?

Today has been crazy. It’s only 10:30. Why?

Because we can’t have good things prior to a 3 day weekend?
