Muppet Free-Association: April 3

The Bruins are riding a fantastic five-game winning streak, including an improbable win over the Chicago Blackhawks yesterday. The team looked beat after playing a second game of a back-to-back on the road less than twenty-four hours after the handily won game against the Florida Panthers.

And that’s great. But what I want to talk about is Noel Acciari.

He scored his second career NHL goal in the same week as his first!

I like this one because I can imagine him saying, “No, really, I got this.”

No word on whether or not this happened again.

But, have you ever looked at Noel Acciari? I mean really looked at him?

Acciari Teenage Riot

He bears a striking resemblance to Sam the Eagle.

Sam The Eagle

How can we not be sure they’re not one in the same? Have you seen them both in the same place?

He wouldn’t be the first Bruin we’ve compared to a Muppet.

Colin Miller

He won’t be the last, either.

Friday night I went to the country side and drank a lot of PBR in an RV. I drunkenly told a person on FB who thought Tuukka was garbage to fuck off. I received a warning on the Bruins FB page.

Well worth the caution. Do you get a yellow card next?

Ah yes. The constant battle to restrain oneself from drunkenly abusing morons on FB/Twitter.

Can’t be long before someone invents a word for this …

Good (late) morning, friends:

  • I am thrilled about the signings of McAvoy and JFK. Thrilled.
  • Like, I can definitely see one, if not both of them as full-time NHLers within the next season.
  • Hopefully JFK adjusts quickly so we don’t sign Spooner to some unwieldy and borderline questionable contract. Trade those rights!
  • Had a skating class yesterday since I used to be awesome at it and now I’m just fucking bad. The guy was very engaging and fun, and was strangely impressed by me. Somehow compared my crossovers to those of Spooner and Marchand? I guess I’m a smurf?
  • “I’m going to make you a MONSTER!” – skating guy
  • comment image

  • With that… my knee doesn’t hurt after I run on it, but if I skate on it, which is much lower impact, it does. I guess it’s the twisting. What does that mean? Ligaments? Meniscus?

    I’m not sure what it means, but Ibuprofen.

    I should take skating lessons. My cross overs suck

    Power skating coaches call them crossunders now. They say it emphasizes putting your weight on the outside leg and driving it under your body.

    So, the H2H season is a wrap. Striped Mofos wilting down the stretch. Congrats to Muffinman. Miss Muse and I tied for third. meh?
    My first fantasy sport experience and it was fun! Thanks, Phony!!!!
    Meanwhile, locked in a heated battle for first with Sis in the Roto league. It’s a battle of attrition now, as we both have burned most of our games.

    Glad you guys all had fun! I did, too, though I always get too wrapped up in what the Bruins are doing and forget about fantasy for a week or two! hahahaha

    Yes, a big thank you to Phoney for the invite. I enjoyed my first fantasy hockey experience.

    But dont get to comfortable up there at the top Mofo, I still have Justin Faulk who will score twelventy PPGs tonight and be a plus evelenty nine with a shutout tonight. If Im already not disqualified for not starting enough goalies this year, then I’m starting a comeback for the ages! I used to be in seventh out of seven you know, now Im fifth. Logically, that means I’ll be in first place by noon tomorrow

    The fantasy league stuff really shows what a marathon the regular season is. Teams got through so many ebbs and flows – unless you’re Arizona, then you just ebb.

    God knows where they’d be without Mike Smith. CB18 traded him to me and he put up some impressive numbers. I guess all the shots he faces means he gets plenty of practice!

    Let me share a little story for you.

    I’ve gone a few dates with a girl from Greensboro, NC. We’ll call her G-Girl. After the third date, we agreed to have another. Things were going well. Skip ahead two weeks later, the flirtatious texting stopped, but the social media jousting continued. I went against my rules and I texted her if she wanted to do something this weekend since I would be in town anyway. Normally I call, but whatever.

    Hello? Nothing. Alright. Time to move on…

    But then Saturday my phone exploded with text notification sounds. Ends up she, nor my father, were ghosting me. She thought I was now ghosting her! After a phone call and some explain, everything was quickly forgiven.

    Moral of the story?

    dating sucks.

    sounds like it was resolved without too much over-reaction though so good on you both for being able to actually communicate and fix the situation. Good sign going forward!

    I think it might be an iPhone thing. I used to have an iPhone, but now I have an Android.

    Did you change over recently? If G Girl has an iPhone she might have been unwittingly sending iMessages. I had a similar issues.

    Stick with Whatsapp (or calling!)

    I switched in November. What’s odd is that I haven’t had the problem in a few months. Oh well.

    What is ghosting?

    Muffinman3

    Ignoring someone. Like if you said hi and I walked right past you without looking in your direction. I ghosted you

    The Once and Future Bagel Bruin
    Member

    Ghosting is when you have a date with someone, but then that person ignores all communication with you. It is like they died and you are only left with their ghost.

    Its for any ignoring, its not dating specific. I’ve been asked why I ghosted someone when I didnt hear them before. Is this a new word? I’ve always heard this.

    Great weekend! Saturday – no one wanted to paddle (Jo offered, so I could go, but I knew she didn’t want to more than I wanted to so we binge watched “Murphy’s Law” – good stuff.
    Great paddle with friends yesterday – wow, what a day!!!
    Well done Bs! Keep it up!!! Acciari!!!! Killer with the snipe! Killer has shown glimpses of offensive prowess in the past, but that was a beauty!!
    So what up, y’all? Besides MOAR COFFEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just got back from my second trip to Finland!

    Sorry, Satan81, I didnt manage to take your advice and take a ferry to Estonia but I did see two series clinching playoff games of the Finland’s Liiga.

    HFK overtime winner at home in Helsinki in game 6 to advance and the current champs (Patrick Laine’s and Tim Thomas’ former team) Tappara beat their rivals, Ilves. Both those teams play in the same city: Tampere, and mean battleaxe and linx. Those fans are insane.

    Sounds like a great trip. My Father-in-law was in Bratislava when Finland won the Hockey World Championship there. He had some tales about the fans!

    Congratulations on your H2H Fantasy League victory btw!

    Oh yeah, they chant and sing the whole game like its soccer. The game in Tampere was two teams (Ilevs/linx amd Tampara/battlexe) from the same town so the fans were answering each other on their champs and claps. It was very cool. Thanks btw, good game to you as well! It was and all muffin themed final. And European!

    Muppet Monday! I love it

  • took the whole weekend off from everything and played video games. It was a long week, one of the longest in a good while
  • Glad the Bruins pulled off two wins though, I didn’t watch any, see above, but I checked the score every once in a while. Feels weird being 2nd in the division again, even if it is just momentarily
  • Leafs have the Sabres tonight & Capitals tomorrow, while the Sens are a home & home with the Red Wings tonight & tomorrow. Boston’s gotta win this one against Tampa tomorrow.
  • Hope you’re all well

    I bet the Leafs lose to the Sabres and spank the Caps so bad they earn 4 points just to spite us somehow
