Morning Free Association: May 24

I was hoping to announce that the Stanley Cup Final matchup had been set. All Pittsburgh had to do was win game six in Ottawa. It’s not like it was a packed house or anything.

Surely, I kid. I only spout this because I fucking hate the Senators boring-ass hockey. And they beat the Bruins in the first round, so fuck ’em.

I didn’t watch the game because I have some semblance of self-respect

null

and because I had to wade through a very deep, long recording of Bearly on Topic to somehow make a coherent episode.

I can tell you that the Penguins lost, prompting a game seven in Pittsburgh on Thursday. Ugh.

Well, at least the Predators will be as well-rested as they have been through every round.

Programming Notes:

  • We will be having game threads for the Stanley Cup Final, so join us for fun, merriment, and rooting for whichever team you wish as long as it isn’t Tootsies. (I kid.)
  • I haven’t brought up the Bracket Challenge in a few weeks. We’ll do that tomorrow.

    Hey Pals!
    How ’bout those Tootsies, eh? Win in Pittsburgh and let’s head to the SCF! Karlsson for the Conn Smythe.
    Easy double last night with plenty of laughs. Range of motion in the knee was good and no pain to speak of. Encouraging. Of course, it folded completely when I tried to get out of bed this morning.
    Lots to do today!!
    Coffee!!!!!

    He’s been this good for awhile, but I am glad he is getting the attention he deserves.

    Karlsson for the Conn Smythe.

    He should get it anyway. He’s been the best player this post season, and the #1 reason the Sens have even gotten this far

    Good morning!

    I haven’t been following the playoffs as close as I should. I’ve been doing very badly at avoiding finding out the results and after that it’s hard to get motivated enough to even watch the highlights…

    I will have to write a preview of the SCF in my paper, though, so I’d better start boning up on what’s happened since the Bs exited! To those who’ve watched the Western Conference games – has any Preds player stood out? There are often good bets to be had on the Conn Smyth winner! If the Pens get through, though Crosby will obviously win it, even if he’s not playing.

    My Bracket Challenges have been disastrous – and I entered three different ones in various leagues! Oh well, it’s not as if I predict sports for a living!

    My darts match against Mr Loudmouth ended in a tie. We play a race-to-four format, but call it a draw if it reaches 3-3. A bit annoying as I went 2-0 up but relaxed too much and blew the lead. I actually really like the guy but would have loved to beat him. At least he didn’t win …

    Is it only Wednesday?? Feels later.

    Like GH said, team effort from the Preds . Rinne has been impressive, if you’re looking for a CS candidate over there.

    What

    Yeah, I guess best-of-six legs would’ve been a clearer way to describe it …
