Morning Food Association: February 17

We’re back!

A new installation of the morning food association beings today, and we’re coming to you live with not a player, not a coach, but a general manager! Today’s food comparison is Boston Bruins GM Don Sweeney, and he will be paired up with Eggs Benedict Arnold Why Eggs Benedict you ask? Well, because Benedict Arnold was a turn coat who betrayed the Colonist in the Revolutionary war and Eggs Benedict has his name in the title. Don Sweeney betrayed the Boston Bruins by giving former head coach Claude Julien permission(!) to speak with the HATED Montreal Canadiens in being their new head coach.

In other NHL news, the Ottawa Senators blanked the Devils last night 3-0, giving them a two point lead over Boston for second place in the Atlantic with still three games in hand (seriously, wtf schedulers). They take on the Toronto Maple Leafs tomorrow, in which a meteor strikes & both teams lose in regulation and get zero points.

I miss hockey. 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

Vermette 10 games for slashing linesman!

If Vermette got 10 for his little love-tap on the linesman, Nyquist definitely deserved A LOT more than the 6 he got for trying to take Spurgeon’s eye out!

It’s not the severity of the hit – it’s who he tried to hit. Linesmen are a protected species. It’s 10 games minimum for actually trying to hit one. (20 if you’re trying to injure).

(It’s not so much a safety thing as it is a preservation of order & security thing. You’ve gotta preserve the authority of the 4 old guys over the 40 young armored, club-wielding athletes.)

I get that. I still think the Nyquist’s obvious intent to injure another player deserves more time that Vermette’s disrespect of authority.

I don’t know where to put this, so here will do:

#NoMushrooms
#NoAvocados
#BaconOnlyOnCheeseburgers
#NoCanadianBacon
#NoMayo

I like food but none of those.

I agree wholeheartedly on #1 & #2, less strongly on #5 (I don’t like mayo, but I can tolerate it), disagree on #4 (Canadian bacon’s not BACON, but it’s OK) and #3 is just plain heresy – BACON ON EVERYTHING!!!

I also forgot that I dislike egg dishes. It’s the texture.

I have literally had every single one of those foods within the last 20 hours.

I was with you for one of those, when I think you had almost all of them.

Here’s a gif (hard g) for you:

The Senate just confirmed the Tangerine-tinted Demagogue’s environment-hating nominee to head the EPA.

I’m about to make eggs benedict, but grilled portobello mushroom instead of english muffin, avocado instead of bacon, a big fat slice of grilled tomato on top. Call it whatever you like!!!!

I call it yummy.

Avocado is no substitute for BACON. There IS no substitute for BACON. And the only fungus fit for human consumption is Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the wonder yeast that gives us bread and beer.

You’re forgetting psilocybin mushrooms.

Nope. I can quite happily do without them, too.

I think in a normal Eggs Benedict, CANADIAN bacon is used, so your point is moot.

My point stands. BACON is the BEST. Even Canadian fancy ham is vastly better than avocadNO.

I’m sitting at home waiting for a big-ass OLED TV to get delivered.

Did you know that I invented Eggs Benedict Arnold? I didn’t notice they were mentioned because I rarely read the actual content of the MFA (sorry).

Miss Muse

What exactly is that?

Morning, pals!

  • It’s been a long fucking week. I feel like I’ve been saying that since Monday.
  • The movers are at the office now, and I’m in my temporary office at Old Norwood. New Norwood will open officially on Tuesday.
  • It’s Mamma Mahoney’s 70th. She’s super cute.
  • Super exhausting. This move has been so draining.
  • Accidentally made eye contact with Cauliflower when he discovered that someone didn’t pack up their power strips last night, and ended up staying an extra hour while he wigged out, so I could help him go through each room and make sure nobody was leaving anything like that. He got to the point where he was flipping his lid because someone left a stapler on a table. It was a wild ride. My boss was texting me from the tavern asking where the hell I was. Oops.
  • Thought I’d reiterate: so tired. Exhaustipated.

    Sounds like Cauliflower needs to carry around an epi-pen full of ativan!

    And, Happy B-day Mamma Mahoney!

    Good morning, friends. What a shitty week.

    When class ended yesterday, I got a call from my mom. She told me that my grandfather passed away yesterday morning. This wasn’t much of a surprise. He’d been in poor health for years and had been battling Alzheimer’s more recently. But still, it sucks. And he was my last grandparent.

    Can hockey come back now, please? I need a distraction.

    Miss Muse

    I’m so sorry. That really sucks. sad

    Morning!

    -Friday!
    -Possibly buying a car this weekend. I fucking hate dealers, so this should be fun.
    -Probably working again tomorrow. This Saturday working business is for the birds.
    -Hockey is soclose, yet so far.
    -I don’t really blame Sweeney. Habs or not, I feel it was the nicer thing to do to give freedom to a man you were firing.

    I gotta say… I never understood how a team could fire a guy and still have a say in what he did afterwards.

    IntentionallyWidenberg
    Admin

    It’s a neat trick.
    Since you are contractually obligated to pay the remainder of his contract, you relieve him of his coaching responsibilities but still ’employ’ him.
    Thus the noncompete/noninterference rules still apply.

    CBAs and contracts are strange

    MadScientist72

    Stupid loopholes! They always seem to favor management & never the little guy.

    DrHandgrenaid
    Editor

    Coaches aren’t fired, they are ‘relieved of their duties’. Can’t terminate the contract unilaterally, and the team is still on the hook to pay them. Ergo, a team has to consent to a coach being hired elsewhere. This usually isn’t an issue because most owners would rather not have to keep paying a fired coach. However, typically one would see a team NOT allow a coach to go directly to a rival. but here we are.
