Morning Free Association: March 20

The past few days have been needed as a respite from the hockey season and that terrible, horrible, no-good game against the Oilers. Remember when the Oilers sucked? Yeah, those were good times.

The Bruins didn’t even start practicing until yesterday they needed a break so bad.

All things considered, they earned 4 our of 6 possible points. The roadtirp was a success, just that game. Ugh.

So, what happened over the weekend. Oh, yeah, someone had a birthday on Saturday.

Do you know how old he is?

I was supposed to go home early today because I have a head cold. I am still at work as it’s one of those “Let’s have every problem happen at once” kind of days.

The Hockey News has a good article on why Corsi isn’t everything. Their case study: The LA Kings.

I sense a great disturbance in the force… as if all Canadians living west of Quebec City had vomited at once.

Meanwhile Halifax is slowly realizing that their real hero is the pride of Hammonds Plains, not those two mannequins from Cole Harbour

Good morning everyone

  • Been doing one of our vendors job for them this morning. Much excite, many wires. Bullshit
  • Could have sworn the Toronto game tonight was Saturday…. Good call on that one me
  • Weekend was amazing. Seeing Dropkick Murphys was absolutely incredible, and easily the best show I’ve ever seen. Saw a drunk girl get popped in the mouth by a very drunk man
    unpopular opinion
    she deserved it
    , a girl flash the crowd on stage, and just 3 hours of non stop Irish punk music. 10/10 would go see them again next year.
  • It’s also race week, cannot wait for the F1 season to kick off on Sunday (thursday if you count practices)
  • Back to bullshit wiring! Have fun everyone

    Sounds like the concert was about like I would have imagined a Dropkick Murphys gig to be!

    It is indeed raceweek! I got excited when I saw the race starts at an almost sociable hour, then remembered we put our clocks forward the night before. And it’s mothers day. And I have to go to work. Ah well. It’ll be good anyway!

    During my brief moments of sobriety this weekend, I took a date to her first NHL game and she loved it. Also, my Winter/Spring rec team got out first win of the season. I had the primary assist on my brother’s GWG. Great weekend indeed

    Good Morning, pals!!!!
    Nice weekend with Jo. We went looking for stuff for the new house Saturday. We’re looking for old stuff(house was built in 1890s). Lights, funky things in general. I want to make some lights and got some great ideas. Found a source for brass lamp parts, too.
    Picked up an old timers game yesterday afternoon. I forgot my brace, but the knee felt very good. Worked with an older guy who just quit playing and hadn’t done a real game yet. We had fun, he picked it up quick, and the game was easy.
    Kayak polo starts Wednesday!! I very excite!!!
    Enough with the coffee. I need some water.

    Good morning, friends.

    Spring Break is over and I am sad. But, at the same time, I’m thankful for getting back to my regular routine. The academic job market is so bleak and depressing that I need a distraction. Woof.

    Trying to catch the game tonight. After watching that debacle against the Oilers, I feel like the Bruins owe me one.

    Oh, and Duke lost in Shootyhoops, so at least those assholes in Durham are unhappy.

    That’s not even surprising anymore. They’ve got to be the most frequently upset team in the last 10 years. Even with the championships they’ve won in that time frame.

    (I’m not a basketball fan, but I do usually keep tabs on the tourney out of curiosity – used to fill out a bracket, too)

    Surprising or not, it makes this Tar Heel very happy. Any time Duke loses, the world wins.

    I never realized just how shitty boston.com was for hockey coverage was until today.

    Not only do they not have any coverage of the Super 8 Championship last night (it’s not like it’s a state title or anything…) but then I noticed the NHL standings. Seriously, you should all head over to https://www.boston.com/section/sports and scroll down on the right side of the page…

    Talk about a fluke goal winning it for you. Had no right scoring on that.

    How fucking old is that standings chart? Is that 2013? (must be, 13-14 is when realignment happened)
