Morning Free Association, September 29

The Bruins dropped their second pre-season game last night, 5-1 against the Red Wings. They’ll get a rematch of sorts in Detroit on Friday.

The loss itself was not a big deal, as the Bruins were trying out a lot of young players with a few veterans. Malcolm Subban looked far less than stellar while allowing 4 goals on 34 shots. (And he wasn’t rocking the sweet black pads from last year.) Austin Czarnik had the B’s sole goal and Zach Senyshyn and Colin Miller both lead the Bruins with 5 shots on goal. Adam McQuaid didn’t send the puck over the glass but did spend time in the box for high-sticking and roughing. The Pride of Rhode Island, Noel Acciari, left the ice in the third period with a leg injury and did not return to the game. Please, let it be minor.

The Red Wings debuted their special gloveless high-fiving goal celebration. Is this that weird?

Good Morning All!
Easy double last night. Late, though. Got home just after midnight.
Slept in!!!
Missed the game as I was on the ice.
I thought paddling season was pretty much over, but found out there is water Oct 8th and 9th… days I already accepted hockey games. I’d rather be on the river, but it’s hard to dump games once you have them.
Not ready for cold and really don’t want daylight savings time to end or start, whatever it’s going to do to make it dark all the fucking time.
It was pretty quiet next door until 7:30 today – yay!
Coffee, please.

Wait. Does the water disappear? I am also not ready for cold weather. It’s already causing me sleeping issues – shiver going to sleep and wake up a couple hours later sweating. WTF?

The power company holds the water in a reservoir and releases it when they want to generate power. They are required by their license to provide a certain amount of recreational releases during the year. They still release water, but you have to call them after 5pm to find out what is being released. if anything, the next day. They don’t release on weekends that much if they don’t have to. They like to generate power when it is most expensive – to maximize their profit. When the dam isn’t releasing there is only a small amount of water – “fish flow” – to keep the critters from dying.

Sometimes they pump water uphill at night, when power is cheap, then release it during prime time the next day when they can get big dough for the power.

I love learning stuff like this

“How do you know so much about reservoir water release rates?”

“I read a hockey blog.”

I did the shiver/ sweating thing last night. Yuck. Getting out of bed when it’s cold is also pretty crappy.

The Nantahala, down your way, releases almost every day!!! The water is fucking freezing, though.

Hello, pals!

  • I thought VA was the Pride of The State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations?
  • Happy National Coffee Day!
  • I did not strike gold last night but we did bond a bit. I have a feeling I’m going to go down swinging at some point.
  • He will be attending an event with some work friends and I in a couple of weeks, though, so that’s good. He sends half signals, so I don’t know what to think.
  • I really need to clean my room. This has been going on for a while now. Maybe I should just resign myself to living in squalor.
  • My cousin’s gatorade really came in handy last night and prevented me from feeling awful this morning, methinks. I didn’t get super drunk, but I drank enough that I would have gotten those nasty dehydration leg cramps in the middle of the night.
  • BU season starts Saturday! Go JFK and McAvoy! (Fabbro will be fun to watch as well)
  • It’s end of month for us. This is not exciting.
  • Missed the game completely yesterday. Glad there’s a recap. Thanks VA.
