Morning Free Association, October 3

Happy Monday, friends!

Lots happening in the Bruins world right now.

Since we last spoke, the Bruins beat the Flyers 4-3 with David Pastrnak scoring twice, Danton Heinen lighting the lamp again, and Jake DeBrusk scoring the shootout winner.

More happenings in Bruinland:

  • Long coveted and now not really coveted defenseman Christian Ehrhoff was signed to a PTO by the Bruins.
  • Forward Peter Mueller was released from his PTO yesterday. Might be the end of the line for him.
  • Also, Big Papi played his last regular season game on Sunday. Hopefully he wins his last World Series ring as a player in a few weeks.

    Anywho, what’s on tap?

    Morning all! It’s going to be a crisp 74 degrees today and hockey starts soon and we had breakfast brought in cause one of our staffers is leaving and this might actually be shaping up to be a good Monday.

    Don’t quite understand Mueller…
    Okay CORSI, can get some points. You’d think he could latch on as a 3rd/4th liner somewhere. Must be horrendous defensively despite the corsi figures.

    His skating isn’t where it should be for an NHL player (looked worse than Matt Fraser), which could be an issue. He seems like someone who could play a role in the league, but I doubt the Bruins are the only team that is deep enough in bottom-6 forwards that he can’t find a spot.

    Gotcha. Needless to say, I’m looking solely at hockey-ref, not his actual play.

    Strange league where a former 20-goal scorer at 18 can be effectively out of the league at 25 while 4th line grinders can last 15 years without topping 5 goals in a season.

    Uh, I guess I don’t mind holding then.

    Most of you know, but I will share it for the rest.

    My girlfriend was offered a post doctoral position at Michigan State University. She will accept the position and begin working at the start of the semester. That means I will be moving to Lansing metro area after May once I finish my associates. Hopefully I will attend MSU as well.

    The next step for me is to apply to MSU, figure out how the hell I am going to pay for out of state tuition, find a part time job there, and figure out my exact moving date. I won’t move until June, so I have time, but it is best not to let this slide.

    I have no idea why I wrote that to be honest. Best of luck though!

    Awesome! Hooray for post-docs!

    So, when you get into MSU, given your past at UT, will you be a Volunteer Spartan? (I just can’t help myself).

    My institution combo makes little sense, but I find it funny. I’m a Rainbow Warrior Tar Heel.

    Yeesh, my small town office has longer hours than that.

    Good morning, friends!

    We returned from our weekend in Chicago yesterday – we had a great time and the wedding we went to was lovely. Our dog sitter, on the other hand, was not so lovely. He gave the dogs twice their portion at both breakfast and dinner – our little one, Sippi, has been shitting her brains out. We’ll not be having him watch the dogs again. Woof.

    Papi’s ceremony yesterday was lovely. I’m glad that the Sox are going to retire his number. I hope the Baseball Writers do the right thing and put him into the Hall of Fame in five years time, too.

    Hockey (that counts) soon! I’m excited!

    Why do people think overfeeding an animal is being nice to it? My friends dog kayaks with him. People bring it lots of treats. Please, everyone stop! You are killing that dog.

    People were doing that to SatanDog when I was watching her for SatanParents. She’s a freakin’ sheltie people! She doesn’t need a whole Milk Bone or an entire cup of ice cream!

    She didn’t mind at all. Apparent she barfed a bit when she got home.

    She had 6 (SIX) accidents last night while we slept. It was a pretty shitty morning. The poor thing.
