Morning Free Association: 12 Dads A Cheering

Embed from Getty Images

Saturday’s game was a messy one with the return of questionable and retaliatory hits, and facial cross-checks (looking at you Shayne Gostisbehere) and that was just those on Marchy. Everyone’s least favorite NO GOAL even made an appearance on each team, being traded mid-game between the Bruins and Flyers.Still the Bruins were able to leave Philly with a resounding win.

As discussed in the game thread on Saturday, this is the Father’s Trip with many of the player’s dads joining them on the road to spend some time together. During the hectic hockey season it can be difficult to schedule family time outside of the Christmas break. And of course, the dads get to catch some game action.

I can only imagine all of these guys down on that stretch of Broadway with all the bars and touristy honky Tonks in Nashville because that’s where they all are. I hope all the dads get matching stetsons and boots with their sons.

Catch that game, Bruins at Preds, tonight!

I continue to resemble Mike Milbury as a GM. The Striped Motor are slightly less than mediocre.

Wading through crap at the office and making no dent in my to do pile. My boss has had a crazy schedule with client meetings so whenever he has a spare minute where I can ask him questions I’m pretty much:

And desperately trying to avoid getting sick because I just don’t have the time for it. A nasty cold has been going around the Valley.

Ended up working a couple of hours on my day off because people suck.

Papa Rask seems like he would be fun to party with.

I love how Mr Rask has his arms up like he is the one who punched Wayne Simmonds.

Hey Pals!
I saw only the highlight reel from the Philly game. 3-0 is bueno, no? I’ve always had a soft spot for Gostisbehere as I reffed some of his games when he played at South Kent School. Sometimes you see one of these guys when they are teens and nthey are head and shoulders above the other top players their age – you can’t help following their career and rooting for them. It’s not my fault if they are sometimes (or always, like Patches) douchecanoes.
Great weekend with Jo. She’s awesome (pronounced “still loves me even if I am an idiot”)! I had an awesome prep girls game Saturday – 1-1 tie. A rough and tumble affair that was really fun to be part of and, says Jo, great to watch. After we went to dinner, then spent the rest of the weekend just chillin’ together. Life really is great.
Seeing as I am particularly long winded today –
No more coffee!!l!!

  • Every other day, every other day, every other day of the week is fine, yeahhh….
  • The Bruins fathers trip always makes me laugh. I really love what a kick Tuukka’s father got out of Kevan Miller fighting Simmonds.
  • This would happen to me.

  • Working on the crap I didn’t finish before taking Friday off. Wish me luck.
  • A sad, horrifying, and funny tale: Went to a funeral of a cousin I haven’t seen in literally 17 years on Friday. Their branch of the family tree is absolutely scary (seriously, a charge of attempted murder, another one doing life, and at least two or three otherwise weird and REALLY creepy people), but there’s one delightful, normal one left. This prompted the following question from my aunt:
    “Hey… do you think she feels like Marilyn from The Munsters?” I almost died laughing.

    “Hey… do you think she feels like Marilyn from The Munsters?”

    But….. Marilyn is the weird one, right?
