Morning Free Association, Trick or Tweet

Members of the Boston Bruins have been known to don thematic Halloween costumes for visits to Boston Children’s Hospital. This year was no exception as the players visited children as characters from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

That was just part of the charitable deeds Bruins’ players would perform that day. Photo shoots for the Pucks and Pups calendar happened as well.

Remember, as we say on Bearly on Topic, “His charity work is fantastic!”

You know im off my game when i dont have a costume for halloween… i was gonna do neagan but im just not feeling it this year for some reason and dressing up is like my most favorite thing ever.

I missed the game on friday but it was nice to hear Tuukka in net giving a shutout and ….ghosting… the other team.

Hope everyone had a fun and safe weekend!

Why does posting images have to be so difficult here?

Normally it isn’t too bad. I tried to open that one by hand and my browser puked on it.

No NHL games tonight? They miss an opportunity for fans to dress up. NHL just can’t compete with NFL is what it boils down to. I have given up on trying to convert non hockey friends to avid fans. People either get it or they are WRONG!!!!!!!!!!

Call on the ice stands. We should be at games in costume. Dumb NHL jerks.

If it makes you feel any better prime time football viewership has dropped significantly over the past couple seasons.
You’re never really going to ‘convert’ anyone though. They either take an interest themselves or it just doesn’t happen. I’ve started getting into rugby because I’ve been enjoying watching it on my own and have sought to understand it better. I love board gaming but it’s not like I can expect people to jump in fully because I played one game of Ticket to Ride with them.

Rugby union or rugby league?

Mostly rugby union because it’s what I can find to watch.

If you’ve got a source of league games to watch online I’d be happy to check it out. But ESPN and NBCSN only seem to carry union games (or maybe that’s all that’s going on at this time of year, I dunno)

No legal ones… I’m a bit out of touch with the dodgy streams scene. Most of the ones I used to use seem to have been shut down.

Do they show US/CAN games or overseas stuff?

ESPN has a bunch of overseas stuff. French Top 14 and European Challenge Cup are currently active.

Good point, the league season wrapped up a couple of weeks ago!

Halloween crept up on me this year (pun intended/ not intended). We were too focused on other stuff (us!) to get it together. Jo hasn’t been well and we just needed rest. We might pass out candy or something (trying to think of a healthy candy alternative that doesn’t have nuts, lactose, anything scary or that could be easily misconstrued on the label, Jesus, I’m exhausted already [and, need I remind you, I am a long winded mofo] and it’s only 10:00 am. Fuck Halloween!) at the main house tonight. I still have time to make it look spooky (add nothing).

I’m still exhausted from a party on Saturday. I need more coffee.

Sounds like I missed a good game.

  • Really glad to see the boys grind out a good win on Saturday. Any win is a good one, but that was an actual good game.
  • Tuukka looked really solid Saturday.
  • We’re going to have a weekly late Monday morning piece reviewing the past week in Bruins hockey. Starts today. Yay!
  • After weeks of watching his team play, David Krejci emerged from the shadows, it seems.

    We had quite a few around our house growing up from several generations of boo buckets (having 3 boys born in 84 86 and 90 kind of forces that boo bucket window wide open)

    I have to at least go home and feed the cats but am more or less keen on hiding somewhere this halloween. Just struggling to be into it this year.

    ^as if you need to ask!^ it’s not coffee without bourbon!

    Speaking of bourbon, my buddy had a mason jar of bourbon he’d infused with coffee beans out at his cottage (where I was) this weekend. It was marvelous and would make a mug of bourbon coffee that would make the whole world a better place.

    Sign me up for that! So by infused do you mean it sat in a mason jar with the beans for the appropriate amount of time for the bourbon to be wonderful? I must try this. Not sure how long I could keep my hands off that, but I’ll give it a shot if you can procure a recipe.

    DrHandgrenaid

    I think he pulled it off google. something like a cup of bourbon and a quarter cup of coffee beans and a little brown sugar, but I’d run a search to be sure. You can do the same with a vanilla bean (I want to- its no different than making bourbon vanilla, just with a lot more bourbon so it doesn’t become vanilla extract), or, in theory anyway, if you can find them, cocoa beans.

    Good morning everyone.

  • Happy Halloween
  • Had a good weekend. Got my truck inspected & new tires installed. Only $530 for the truck. Now just the car to go!
  • Was great to be back on BoT Sunday after a weeks hiatus thanks to my shit laptop. Be on the look out for that later this week.
  • Oh my god, the last 5 laps of the Mexican Grand Prix was absolutely fantastic with MASSIVE stuff happening between the two Red Bull drivers and Sebastian Vettel. VET with amazing radio telling the head of the FIA essentially to “fuck off”. Terrific stuff.
  • Holy shit was Rask fucking terrific Saturday.
  • I really want some water, but the card readers on the vending machines don’t work again…..

    Beautifully said.

    How great is it that after a month of Vettel bitching about Verstappen moving under braking that he’s the one who gets nailed for it first?

    London Bear had a good point last night wondering if they used that penalty as way to punish him for his radio comments.

    I know nothing about F1, BUT I can tell you as a ref that when someone whines about something, I might be on the lookout for the complainer committing said complaint. Try not to be a whiny bitch and let me ref the game. Thank you.
