Morning Free Association: May 22

It’s Memorial Cup time! After the P-Bruins picked up Zach Senyshyn and Jesse Gabrielle from their respective junior teams, the Bruins are down to one player left playing in the junior leagues: Jakub Zboril. Winners of the Presidents Cup in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, the Saint John Sea Dogs are the Q’s representative to the tournament this year.

For those who don’t know, the Memorial Cup is the top tier tournament for the CHL. The winners from each league plus the host city compete in a round robin tournament to win it all. Last years winners, the OHL’s London Knights, didn’t get the chance to repeat this year, as the four teams competing this year are the Sea Dogs, Erie Otters (OHL), Seattle Thunderbirds, and the hose city Windsor Spitfires.

Currently, the Sea Dogs are down 0-1, losing to Windsor 3-2 on Friday. They resume play tonight, at 7pm EST. How was everyones 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

Jo and I took our part time dog with us this weekend. Poor little dude was exhausted after all the adventure, but right now he looks like he’d rather have more adventure than head back to his peeps. Every time I stand up, he heads for the door wagging his tail!

Hey.

We went to the P-Bruins game last night and were surprised to see it so dead. I would say about 1/3-1/2 the usual amount of people normally there. In fact, they had about half the concessions closed due to this. One employee told us that they had had PC’s graduation there earlier in the day. BTW The Baby B’s won in OT.

True, i suppose graduation would prolly make people less inclined to go to the game….wouldnt think of that.

It’s a combo of things with that only being a contributing factor.

Truthfully, I was surprised to hear that PC does graduation there. I knew they played both basketball and hockey there but I thought they’d use their campus for that event.

Yeah! PC only has 4,000 students.

Clearly it was our attendance that put them over the top.

Well, of course it was; you’d be silly to think otherwise.

What else were we to do? Stay at home to do some reverse knitting?

Hard to believe no one was at the game. It’s that time of year, though. People are doing things, going places. Tuesday, the 30th is still in my sights.

The Memorial Cup is one of the coolest things I’ve ever read. I wish I was in Canada so I could enjoy it more.

Morning all. Decided to lay down on the couch for a little bit yesterday around 1:30. Next thing I knew it was 5:30. Guess I needed rest.

Hey Pals!
Memorial Cup is always great stuff. You may have to pay to watch it, but well worth it, IMO.
We stayed in our new place for the first time!!!!! We have plumbing, and that’s yuge . We set up a camp kitchen and put an air mattress in our bedroom – Bam, 875 square foot tent! Sat by a campfire in the backyard Saturday night and listened to the river over a couple frostier. Sunday Jo went paddling while I worked. She doesn’t paddle through Zoar Gap, though, so I met her at the takeout above the Gap, and paddled her boat through. It was weird jumping right into the big stuff like that, but I hit all my eddies and kept the shiny side up. It felt so good that a buddy and I hauled our boats back up through the gorge to do it again!! We call ’em Gap laps.
I be talkative today!!!!
No moar coffee!!!!

Frosties, what’s wrong with frosties? I think autofotch got screwed up when I dropped my device (it’s a kindle, all I’ve got left and it’s got a cracked screen!). I’ll be using smoke signals next, with wind for autocorrect!
