My new favorite dumb narrative that I just made up myself:

The Stars lost Kris Russell to free agency and missed the playoffs. The Oilers acquired Kris Russell in free agency and made the playoffs.

Vatrano is day to day and will not play tonight. Beleskey is in for him

Between the two, I think I’d rather Beleskey. If Vatrano isn’t scoring goals, he’s not doing anything else, either.

Game day previews should have:

(circle one per option)
Vatrano/Beleskey
Liles/C. Miller
Hayes/Anyone else

  • Hearing that they’re going to burn a year for McAvoy, but I don’t know how true that is.
  • Can’t wait for the game tonight. Hopefull they leave Dallas sad and confused.
  • Backes Boys on the radio again this morning. Laughed my head off again. My pal Heather (@lilybraden) is convinced that if we get to the playoffs, it’s because of Backes Boys. I think she’s right.

    One week and one day away from the start of my spring break. Who wants to get wild with me in Madison, WI!

    Good Morning, pals!!!
    Kayak polo was awesome once again!
    Looks like it’s time to quit reffing. I’ve been avoiding the reality, but the handwriting is on the wall (and what is it trying to say?). I don’t want to quit, but the knee is making a case for retirement.
    I’ll be hitting the Farmington River this afternoon, with some buddies – yay!!
    Moar coffee in the mean time (which is a groovy time!).

    Good morning folks

  • Don Sweeney looks like Herman Munster to me, which makes me think of the last chorus of “What’s Golden” by Jurrasic 5, where Chali 2na goes “well it’s the verbal Herman Munster” and now that song is stuck in my head. Good song though, I’ll allow it.
  • Happy that McAvoy has signed, very interested to see what JFK does & really hoping Sweeney goes hard at Bjork.
  • This week has sucked work wise and I want it to be over.
  • Suckiness boiled over to home life too yesterday. We were having company over for a fancy dinner party, had lasagna in the oven & opened the stove to put in bread sticks, oven is cold. Out of propane. Oh shit, no big deal, dinner will just be late once I switch over to the grill tank. Go to do it, door is ice dammed. Ugh, chip it away, got into the lean to, and the fucking copper pipe connecting my propane tank to the house broke. Just snapped about a foot down from the adapter.

  • Don’t know if we’re doing trivia tonight as most of our team isn’t going to make it. Haven’t decided yet.
  • Bruins, you better win tonight.

    Now, THAT’S a leaked video NO ONE wants to see. Doesn’t matter if it’s the hockey player or the ex-Sugarcubes singer! #B2BAfterDark

    Utah. They’re incompetent.

    Just like Delta. Delta sucks.

    At back of plane on window? Board last!

    Carry on the standard size with extender zipper? Better tighten it down or you’ll have to gate check. Unzipped bag fits with over 3 inches clearance.

    At back of plane on window? Board last!

    And then comes the inevitable announcement: “The overhead bins are full. All remaining passengers will have to gate check their bags.”
    Yes, I’m still a little bitter.

    Ugh!

    That blows.

    I thought it was common practice that you boarded the plane back to front? Isn’t that the easiest??

    That’s why I like JetBlue. They board from the back & they start asking for volunteers to gate check before boarding if the plane is full.

    You would think so, but not always the case. WTF?
