Morning Free Association: December 19

It’s late, or early depending upon your interpretation of time. I’m not going to bore you with a recap.

Okay, I will. Let’s get to it!

The Bruins played the Kings in a fairly uninspired game.

First Period:

At 4:20 in the first, Colin Miller wristed one on net and was originally credited with a goal. However, it was then determined that Jimmy Hayes got a piece of it and it was his second of the season.

Later in the period, Kyle Clifford and Kevan Miller played punchy face.

Second Period:

I’m sure that stuff happened, players skated and all that, but no one scored.

Third Period:

Hey, uh, there was a game still happening. Still nothing in the either net.

You get the point. Bruins won 1-0.

Tuukka gets another shutout on the season.

Next game is the B2B group outing at the Isles game.

Out of curiosity, should we run a game thread that night? Or is everyone cool if we take the night off?

I’ve been very productive today but feel like my to-do pile is not getting any smaller.

Even though NC makes it “easy” to transfer, this is still a huge pain in the ass.

OMG! The band Son Volt is playing on a weekend night at a venue one hour away. I’ve been wanting to see this band for years! March 11th can get here soon enough.

  • Missed the game yesterday, but apparently I didn’t miss much. I really enjoy beating the Kings, though.
  • The new office is off the fucking chain. Like, so nice that I can’t picture us working there.
  • Going to the game tomorrow with VA, Glenn, HHG, et al. It’ll be a great time!
  • My butt still hurts. I feel like it’s never going to heal.
  • I feel like I’m missing a Christmas gift, but I’m not sure who are what it is!

    Congrats to @BlueJacketsNHL coach John Tortorella, who became the first American-born coach to earn 500 NHL victories. pic.twitter.com/df3d7hT4r6

    this just doesn’t seem right for some reason

    Torts is a very good coach. He is definitely fun in interviews. I think players can only stand his intensity for so long before they have to start tuning him out.

    Ron Wilson was a Canadian born US citizen(moved to Rhode Island at age 12). He had 648 wins. Bob Johnson spent much of his career on the college side so only had 234 NHL wins. Lamoriello spent most of his time in the front office (58 wins).

    Yeah, I was surprised that he was the first to 500, an looked up a few others. Bylsma & Capuano haven’t even made 500 games, let alone 500 wins.
    Good catch on Ron Wilson.

    I’m happy to report that I neither hate Tortorella, nor do I think he’s incompetent. I don’t understand why people think he’s such a moron.

    carvinbass18
    Editor

    I’m not sure either. He’s a loudmouth which I think is some of the perception. For whatever reason I’m just surprised he’s the 1st American to each 500.

    I think his outspokenness brings some fun to things. Everyone whines that NHL players are short on personality, but then they complain when Torts has anything to say.

    Hello.

    I’m all done with work till Boxing Day!

    Caught the game this morning. Bit of a nervy one, but more enjoyable than the Kings’ visit to the Garden last year!

    To those going to the Isles game tomorrow, have a great one! Wish I could join you. One day maybe!

    Good Morning!

    I saw a mouse run across our driveway and under our porch last night. My wife is deathly afraid of mice. If that fucker gets inside and cause me stress by terrifying her, it will suffer greatly, I promise.

    In other news, short week then a short Christmas break. I’ll gladly take that.

    Mice in the house: a problem since the caveman and no end to it in sight! I already know I have a lot of rodent proofing to do at the new place. Yes, they’re unsanitary, but they can be much worse than that. Chewing the insulation of of wiring is a not bright, but they can’t resist. No matter what you do, they’ll get in. I like traps over poison, but usually a combination of both is required.
    Did you know that some Native American tribes would rob the stashes of mice and squirrels in the winter when things got tough. Yup. Schwartz (my squirrel, for the uninformed) still holds a grudge!

    For the record, I don’t know that they’re inside. I just saw one outside and I know our bulkhead is probably at risk of entry.

    That sucks. Mice in the house is the worst. We had a family of them in the insulation underneath the addition for a little while. They were not fun to get rid of.

    If needed, I’m thinking a non-lethal trap combined with a free “flight” off our backyard cliff. It’s only 30 to 50 feet down.

    mice can climb – they’d be back the next day.
    If you go non-lethal, find a wooded area a couple miles away to dump them.

    Who said I’d let them out of the trap?

    Near a railway line is a good place to release them too – they seem to like the environs. And chocolate is the best bait – forget cheese!
