Morning Food Association, October 28

Good morning. Is it good? Is it even morning for some of you. I don’t know. Today’s Morning Food Association does not come from a place of love and happiness like the previous few.

No, this one comes from frustration and anger. This food is supposed to be reserved for one Adam McQuaid, however as how the Bruins have been playing of late, I’ve opened it up team wide. Today’s food is a creation between myself, German Hammer, and E-Orr04, and it is the Stupid Salad. A food that’s origins are based in miscommunication between soup or salad, to becoming super salad, and all the way to stupid salad.

What is a stupid salad you all ask? We’ll I’ll tell ya. It’s the salad that comes from your local House of Pizza shop. It’s a whole head of iceberg lettuce, cut in half, one baby carrot, shredded finely, one large whole tomato, capped with stale croutons. Place all ingredients into a aluminum lasagna tray and place on top of the pizza you’ve ordered.

Seriously, this salad is fucking stupid. Who eats the hard crusty damn-near-inedible core of lettuce? Why the 0.051oz of carrot? Do you not have a knife to dice the tomato? Croutons are already stale bread, what the shit? Who the fuck puts salad on top of pizza and lets it get warm!? Idiots. Well, for the most part, that’s how the Bruins have been playing, like idiots.

What’s on tap?

The view from the Ranger’s end of the ice is pretty damning, IMO.

I’m surprised by this. Even if I try to look at this through non black and gold tinted glasses.

Unwarranted. Do they just skip to suspensions now? I thought first time was a fine?

Ha ha ha! I love this MFA! Exactly!

I had a turkey sandwich for breakfast just now. Really good — it had a layer of cranberry sauce in it that wasn’t too much to make the bread soggy.

It’s also raining, which only sucks cause I couldn’t find my brolly this morning. But I have a nice waterproof-ish jacket instead.

I’m currently reading The Little Prince and I absolutely adore it. I was immediately hooked when the author talked about how one day as a child he drew a boa constrictor who ate an elephant and was disappointed when no one could see that and told him “Oh what a nice hat.”

I still need to get makeup for my Halloween costume.

Also did you see this last night? Bishop clears the puck AND takes out a Hab. Very nice.

I demolished & rebuilt our front steps this week, finishing it sufficiently for use the day before yesterday. When I got home last night, it was pouring a cold hard rain, and I knew that GH would have left the basement door (under the rather dry overhanging deck) unlocked, but damn it, it was the first day all week the steps were open. So I walked up the front, thinking “Lookit me! I’m walking up my brand new staircase! Wheeeee!”, in the cold pouring deluge.

Manhood. Tool time. Bimford-9000. *grunt* *grunt* *grunt*

Yes, you are a man and I am proud of you for building the steps.

Fun fact: you can hear the high-pitched buzzing of one of the power saws in the background of this week’s podcast. Which reminds me, my mic is too hot, I need to get a new one.

Progress!

Tuukka Rask is on the ice getting some early stretching in this morning before practice.

So the covered bridge in my town was closed for a couple of days for repair. It was fun watching people still make the turn despite there being a big orange Bridge Closed Detour sign. Yesterday I got to see someone drive right into the sign.

I was in Worcester the other day and while it is easy to get in, it is most difficult to get out. Seriously, to get to 290 to leave requires going through this gauntlet:

  • An old man, possible homeless, mentally ill or both, who insists upon not using the crosswalk that is 10 feet away and upon jaywalking right in front of cars during the green light
  • If you even move your car slightly, he will call you “cockcsucker”, which while factually accurate for some drivers, it is still not a pleasantry.
  • The car that decides that it must pass you on your right even though there is exactly zero space to do so
  • An undirected traffic flow right past the stoplight where cars pour in from four directions
  • When finally at the turn for the ramp, a white van that while in your right lane, will turn to cut you off and then proceed to break several traffic laws (or did he, because WORCESTER) while travelling upon 290. It was so satisfying to flip him off when I caught up and passed him.
  • You know, this might not have had anything to do with the original thought, other than stupid people, but it felt great to get it out.

    That is spectacular. The street I grew up on had a bridge going over it (the McGrath Highway bridge in Somerville), and people would rent U-Hauls and think they could fit them under the bridge and drive through… the tops would get peeled off like a friggin sardine can. You could watch it from our parlor window. It happened all the time. So great.

    I read this this morning:

    The Bruins should just launch Colin Miller into the sun

    Ok, so I may be misquoting there…

    Colin Miller looks great…at not accomplishing much. We just don’t think he has the vision and head to be anything more than a role player who can chip in with offense but who doesn’t process the game quickly enough to be an effective player in his own end.
    -K Luedeke

    https://scoutingpost.com/

    So he’s coming right out and saying what I was implying yesterday – Chiller’s a dumbass and will never be more than a roleplayer. This isn’t an instance where a confirmation of what I’m seeing makes me feel any better. sad

    The London Bear
    Member

    I got torn to shreds once on the other blog last season for calling out Miller’s dumbass plays and giving up possession.

    I think he’s been better in general this season – a few times making a simple pass rather than just blasting it into a bunch of bodies – but yeah, he’s starting to look rather limited.

    the german hammer

    Well, they do believe a lot more in narrative there than we do. I’m sorry that happened but glad you’re here.

    The London Bear

    Aww thanks. And thanks for the FB friending btw. You should know I have a Canadian “friend” with the same name, who is very active on there. Sometimes I share/comment his stuff, just so you know, yes, there are two AS’s smile

    the german hammer

    You’re welcome. I knew from the picture. You popped up in my suggested friends and I had a rare moment when I wasn’t paralyzed with doubt as to whether I should or shouldn’t.

    the german hammer

    Yeah, apparently he hasn’t been on the Colin Miller train for a while, which it seems ran off the tracks into a ditch lately.

    Hello people. Help me.

    Yesterday the rosters for my rec team were finalized. I knew everyone but one guy, but I thought I recognized his name. I found him and Twitter and knew I had played pick up with him a few times before, although we never really spoke to each other. I went about my day and didn’t think about it.

    While my phone was in my pocket, I accidentally sent him a Facebook friend request and he accepted. Am I a creeper; thus, this is my punishment? Should I delete him as a friend and act like nothing happened? Should I apologize for my creepiness? Or should I just go about life and buy beers for the first game? HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ah it’s NBD. I get where you’re coming from because it always takes me a million years to work through the “should I ask this person to be my FB friend?”, as if it were as big a deal as asking someone to go to prom. I cite the friending of many people on this site as example.

    yeah some random weird person named Virginia wanted to add me the other day…i was like…ehh…why not…that was my Grandmothers name so it cant hurt.

    Really, though. I’ve gotten those random friend requests, usually with a photo of some pretty lady with a foreign sounding name. I don’t understand why people would ever think something good could come out of accepting.

    the german hammer
    Admin

    Oh yeah, I know. I just delete. Typically, if we don’t have friends in common, or I don’t know you from, well, here mostly, I don’t accept.

    Aw, that’s sweet that it was your grandmothers name.

    And hey! Wait a minute, I am pretty random and definitely weird.

    But see, I would have never added you normally because I would thought it would have been unwelcome.

    I know everyone else on the team but him, but he seems to know everyone else on the team but me, so it’s cool. We should have one hell of a line up.

    Just go about life and buy beers. If he thought you were creepy he probably wouldn’t have accepted the request.

    Good Morning All!

    I’m going to equate the Bruins with one of Frank Zappa’s creations – Burnt Weenie Sandwiches! Tough to swallow and hard to digest, this year’s Boston entry on the NHL menu. Doesn’t smell very good either. In fact, it stinks! Our only hope is that they can make poutine out of this mess before long.

    Nice easy double last night. Only two games on tap this weekend, by choice. Both u-18 games, they will keep me in shape, but leave me time with Jo.

    The yard is a mess. I’ll spend some time on that today.

    COFFEE!!!!!!!!!! I didn’t get off the ice until midnight last night.
