Morning Free Association: December 7

Not much is happening between the games this week. However, I did find this banner promoting the Bruins Academy app on the Bruins Twitter page. Let’s discuss it.

bruins-academy

While it’s not a bad illustration, it does raise some questions and other thoughts:

  • Why does Patrice have a different jersey on? Is he playing against Chara and Krejci?
  • Why aren’t the three leaders wearing each of the three distinctly different Bruins jerseys? They certainly would love to market the new thirds, right?
  • Is that a shadow of Chara’s head on his neck or did someone give him a big ol’ double chin?
  • Is it me or did they pretty much get the noses right, within reasonable standards for illustration?

Anyway, talk about this or whatever else you want.

Morning Afternoon everyone!

Today has been busy. I do not understand how it is lunchtime. Should be around for part of the game tonight, I hope.

Craig Cunningham Update:
He’s still in the hospital but the good news is he’s awake and face timed with some teammates!

P.s Any updates on Vitrano time table other than “he skated briefly during practice yesterday”

Haven’t seen anything. I think the original timetable was around Christmas. So basically I guess he will be back:

Morning everyone.

Those aren’t bad carricatures. Reckon I could tell who they were supposed to be even without the numbers.

I have a cold coming, I can feel it. Very rare for me. I have theory that gargling Jack Daniel’s will kill those germs…

Tonight’s game is blacked out for me. It’s a bit of a late start anyway. And the Caps… We don’t beat them, do we? Or DO WE?? Hopefully I’ll be able to catch a replay before tomorrow night’s game!

Finally managed to call a KHL game right in a preview! Vladimir Sobotka’s Avangard beat Joonas Kemppainen’s Sibir in the Siberian derby. 3-1.

Recch for using “Siberian derby” in a hockey context.

LAST RANDOM THOUGHT!

The bullshittery of my hockey league has begun. Teams, overall, were assembled fairly. Yes, some teams are better than others, but no team is stacked.

For one team, Team D, they don’t like that. They have two players were like being the best team. Team D was already the best. They haven’t lost a game yet. Today we found out they are adding players to their roster. These players are for “injured” players. That’s fine, but they often get players who played D3 and D2 collegiate hockey to take the place of beer-bellied dads who can’t make the late games.

Team E, my team, plays team D tonight. They already gave us our worst lost of the season. We legally added a player to our roster to fight back. We found out they added one of the best players around to their roster as a “fill-in” to up us. That fill-in is the older brother of someone on our team.

We alerted the league, but Team D often gets their way. They have players who donate money to the rink and the league. Tonight’s game might be chippy. Can a player with a cage get in a fight?

Can a player with a cage get in a fight?

Why not? Just make sure to get his helmet off before you try to punchify his face!

I see way too much of this crap. (Stacking of teams) Never understood it.

Remove the cage and set yourself free!!!

Probably not, but that’s never stopped someone before!

After life happened, I decided not to move to Michigan. Call me a redneck, sensible or whatever, but it wasn’t the best idea. I instead move my focus to NC State and UNC Greensboro. State has a little bit more going for it, as well as being in Raleigh (my second favorite North Carolina city.) I’m still a semester or two away from transferring, but if I do go to NC State, I will buy myself this.

I often need a symbolic reward to make me do things. That jersey will be my symbolic reward.

It’s safe to say, that jersey rocks

Good morning, pals!

  • Caps tonight – should be a fun one! …You know, if we can score goals AND play defense.
  • Hall’s hit on Larsen was perfectly clean, but oh boy, did he go down hard. Yikes.
  • Happy birthday to The Legend.

  • A work pal is throwing herself and another coworker a birthday party tomorrow night. They’re both obsessed with their own faces (one is the selfie queen, and the other is a gorgeous, gorgeous man), so i’m having marketing print me a huge picture of each of their heads, a la the Wallach head on T&R. It’s gonna be hilarious.

    You may already know this.

    I was just doing a bit of Jagr research and found that during the 1994-95 lockout he played ONE game for a German League 2 team and got a goal and TEN assists! Mindblowing

    I HAVE SO MANY USELESS THOUGHTS ON MY MIND. I’ll post them all in different threads.

    First of all, that banner makes Chara look like John Waters.
