Morning Food Association, November 4

Good morning everyone! This is going to be short and sweet, and plays a little bit off of last weeks Morning Food Association in that it’s going to be another salad. This blue cheese and cranberry tossed salad is delicious for all occasions! It’s Bruins pair? Adam McQuaid!

Because he just tosses pucks over the glass or tosses himself face first into the boards! Woo!

How we all doin, what’s on tap for the weekend?

I can forgive you if you don't like Rask. I can't forgive you if you think he's garbage. You're wrong

HOLY CRAP! The Blue Jackets beat the Toilet Seats 10-0 last night!!! Unfortunatley, it was Montoya in goal for the Habs & not Price, so Tuukka still has company in the Undefeated Goalies Club.

I was thinking about why I love this sport and decided I will PLAY tonight with the Washington (CT) Comets, a group I have been playing hockey with for almost 35 years! Unfortunately, we have a very Redwing like logo and colors (think a blazing comet where the winged wheel is). In years past I always skated on the dark team, who mostly wore black and gold. Might be a good night to rock some black and gold. Digging into the jersey bin now!

How many jerseys do you own? I have one white, one black, two forest green and two purple. I have some Bruin jerseys too, but I don’t wear them when I actually play hockey

Good morning.

  • I felt like last night was Carlo’s coming out party for the NHL. You should have heard them gush about him on NHL Network
  • I had to take a maintenance day yesterday as my morning walk had me all talked out. And the only hockey conversation I wanted to have really happened in my living room last night during the game. I wanted to take the game off, glad I didn’t, will likely skip Saturday’s game.
  • I’ve got big life plans I want to work on starting next week. I’m not ready to talk about them, yet.
  • This weekend involves double podcasting for me which is so much fun. But, I am looking forward to starting the Hate Read, which I hope will be out next week.
  • And I get to make a pie today.

    that reminds me…i wanted to relay to you that my Mom gave up on Franny and Zooey by Salinger. You may consider adding it to your list.

    Carlo is improving – and he was pretty good to begin with. Needs to work a bit on clearing the zone, but then they all do.

    McQuaid just isn’t up to the level of the rest of the team atm tho. Wonder who gets dropped when Killer comes back…

    not to mention he made a pretty good impression of a goalie last night too

    Softly off his jaw. He said he didn’t think about it while he was going through it. In the post-game, he said it didn’t really hurt.

    Good point, I hadn’t thought of it that way

    the german hammer
    Admin

    Oh, okay.

    I didn’t and still don’t understand the Killer signing. Then again, this defense beyond the Charlo pairing is crap.

    Didn’t mean I don’t like FV- I just literally keep forgetting his return is in the offing.

    The comment was more in reference to an epic, umm, discussion that took place here yesterday wink

    Ah. That was my maintenance day. I think I’ll just avoid it.

    My bet is Morrow gets waived and (hopefully) McQuaid becomes 7D… but it may well end up being Chiller

    at this point id rather waive McQuaid…..

    Yeah.. well…

    yes.

    (Morrow is possibly even shittier)

    I am OK. Enjoying my first omelet in a very long time.

    I want to FINALLY get over to the Lichtenstein exhibit nearby my house and I actually am going to apply for another job, an SAO I position in the College and Academic Counseling Unit here and my cover letter is not boring anymore for this job but it is ridiculous. I’m hoping a mentor I wrote to yesterday will get back to me today and put in her two cents.

    On the flip side, I’m going to talk to my vet also on Saturday about Mulder, cause man, he is seemingly going downhill fast. :/ He’s almost 19 so it’s not surprising but it’s kind of hard to see him slide into the Murphy’s Law side of life, you know.

    I’m not trying to be a downer here but it is what’s going on…

    To end, here’s a picture of me in my Halloween costume. The theme was Dystopian Future and I went as a resident of the Capitol. My damn sparkly green false eyelashes lasted all of 2 minutes when I finally got to the party. They were amazing.

    Sorry to hear about Mulder. Brutal.

    I like the V For Vendetta backdrop. That was a good book/decent film.

    Good luck with the job application.

    Thank you! If I even get an interview request, it’ll feel like fucking Christmas.

    Miss Muse

    Thanks Sis. Mulder 2.0 has been active since July 2013, so I really can’t be too too upset. Every day he’s had past his surgery has been a gift.

    You gave him a good life.

    Am I right in remembering that Jagr doesn’t care for the shootout?

    The BOB

    The BOB

    Very correct. Only 10 shootout attempts for his career. My guess is they came on nights like last night where additional shooters were required.

    phonymahoney

    Valid point.

    DrHandgrenaid
    Editor

    Hypothetically, if a shootout were to make it past the 20th shooter without a resolution, can a coach repeat shooters, or does the goalie get to take a crack at it then?

    Or does everyone go home and never speak of this again?

    Miss Muse
    Editor

    Or does everyone go home and never speak of this again?

    I will go to the NHL HQ myself and at the next rulemakers meeting suggest this be the standard operating procedure with regards to the shootout in general.

    The BOB

    Loop back around. NHL was even smart enough to let both teams loop at the same time, rather than letting one team go back to #1 while the other was stuck with #18 (assuming the first team lost a player to injury)

    DrHandgrenaid
    Editor

    At that point, it would be better to switch to the international sudden death rules- allowed repeated shooters again and again (ala Oshie in Sochi) because at that point, everyone just would want this shit to be done with

    Satan 81's Sister
    Editor

    Or just go rock, paper, scissors?

    This should be the case – with neither team getting a point. Like the game was never played. A refund to fans, as well.

    I’m pretty sure the coach can repeat shooters. But I would have been amused to see Zane out there shooting on Vasilevskiy

    Yesterday I got out of class early and I was able to watch the tail end of the first period and the rest of the game. It was pleasant gift.

    Good Morning All!

    Mc Quaid as a food = knuckle sandwich.

    Remember when Marek Malik scored the behind the back, through the legs, top shelf goal in the 15th round a bunch of years ago? I didn’t think so. Afterward, Torts said he would be 14th in the shootout next time!

    Easy double last night, although late. Got home around 1.

    Only one game this weekend, so we may throw some plastic discs in the woods. Will head up to the new homestead on Sunday, most likely. Definitely if there is water in the river.

    I’m liking the double coffee idea.

    DrHandgrenaid

    Oh right, it was Malik, not Modin that did that!
