Morning Free Association: It’s Happening!

So, something is going on tonight and I have no idea what it could be.

I think it’s something we haven’t experienced for

Obi Wan

I know

Er, okay.

Oh yeah, it’s the beginning of the Bruins’ quest for the Stanley Cup! By now, you all must know what the Stanley Cup is.

Kessel Run

Uh, just because Phil Kessel won the cup last year does not mean that it’s named after him, Han. Or that it’s a ship. Or that a parsec is a unit of time.

Anyway, yes, the Bruins take on the Senators aka Tootsies at 7pm EDT on NESN. Here are some things you may want to know about this matchup.

So, get you adult beverages/ coffee/ substitute beverage ready. Perform your rituals. Use the Force. The Bruins need all the help they can get.


I am so very proud of everyone who has submitted a bracket. I just want to remind you that anyone else who wants to do so has until 6:59pm to get it done. Remember it’s Bobby to Bergy Playoff Bracket Spectacular (the website thought Extravanganza was an inappropriate word) and the password is Brand0Carlriss1an. Do it, it’s fun! And the website is working now!

so, the lunch room guy (it’s not a real kitchen btw) was making general gao’s chicken, but to fry his chicken he was using a small home sized deep fryer (no ventilation, because it’s not a fucking kitchen) & the grease was so over used it was starting to burn, and the smell was so bad at 11:30 i was getting sick. It’s now an hour later, and it still reeks of burnt grease, now 150 feet away in the production area, and I want to vomit. My god.

Morning all.

Been for a lovely 5-mile stroll in the Kent countryside this morning. Classic English mic of weather – black clouds, blazing sunshine and occasiobal gusts of biting wind.

Was struggling to get excited for playoffs tbh due to my natural pessimism but now I’m REALLY up for it!

Starting work at 1pm tomorrow so will try to stay up for first two periods.

My cheeks are in shock at being fully exposed for the first time in about 2yrs (in preparation for playoff beardage). Hopefully I can to at least Sea captain level before Bs bow out, if not ZZ Top level!!

Screw the Sens. Mark Stone has a very punchable face.

I’m strangely calm today. Probably because I won’t be able to actually watch the game tonight so it’s not real to me yet.

I hear all Canadians have to wear hockey helmets because the straps keep their lower jaws from floating away.

One of my favourite Simpsons visual jokes was a sign reading “welcome to Canada. Now Celine Dion-free”

Or maybe it was Futurama

She says “Lerve” instead of “love” and it bothers me.

Good morning all.

  • I had a migraine yesterday which was absolutely not awesome. So I stayed home in a dark room for most of the morning
  • On the good note, my tickets came in for the race in Montreal!!! Much excite
  • Much much more excited for playoffs to start tonight. I’m kicking it old school tonight. No jersey, favorite beer, and staying offline. It will be a bummer not b2bing with you all, but, we’re going for a cup win, and when we won in ’11 I was offline.
  • Only 10 hours until playoff hockey!!!!!!

    Also, bug bites on your scalp are really annoying.
