Morning Free Association: December 28

Last night the Bruins got the monkey off their back. The monkey was an oddly shaped Senators team that they have not defeated since late December back in 2015. That’s a pretty long time, hockeywise.

The Bruins came out strong and virtually dominated the whole game which was lovely to see coming off the Christmas break. There was something for everyone:

A first goal on the season (by a new father)

A Heinie goal

A teammate standing up for a fallen lineman by fighting the purveyor of the shitty hit

Riley Nash getting #Nashty, beating Erik Karlsson

Nashty scoring again

Another dad scoring

This win felt so good considering how that playoff series ended back in April. Yeah, some h=guy on the other team snuck one by Tuukka but who cares. Bruins win, 5-1.

Suck it, Sens!

I love how there is no heat in the office bathroom when it’s brutally fucking cold.

We moved into this brand new building Presidents’ Day weekend.
They still haven’t figured the heat out. My boss’ office is a fucking sauna.

I am about 50 feet away and it’s like 20 degrees at my desk.

I don’t normally ever wear sleeves, but now I’m wearing my fancy work-issue zip up Mr Rogers sweater. And now we know why we all got one when we moved! We thought it was a nice gift, but it was apparently in lieu of a working heating system. DOH!

So Santa really spoiled me and got me a Nintendo Switch. I am SO EXCITED to go home and play Super Mario Odyssey between periods. SO EXCITED, GUYS.

Now I have to go to GameStop and buy Zelda and MarioKart, et al.

Zelda is nearly a perfect game. It’s difficult as hell at times, but that’s what makes it so much fun.

I got Everybodys Golf on ps4. The golfing physics are more realistic than in the EA game, but this one is set in a Japanime world and is mega-addictive!

Howdy, friends!

First, a big thank you to my secret santa for the Marchand POP! and the calendar. Both will have a prominent spot in my office!

I have been exceptionally lazy during this break. Some of that has been due to the plague, but also, I like being lazyish. I’ve got a week of “vacation” left – I suppose I’d better get to work.

Great game last night. I caught the highlights, but I’d like more games like that one!

Hey, buddy!

It was a fun one! How was Christmas?

It was good! I now have Thor’s hammer to take into my classroom and smite the nonbelievers!

I saw you got a Switch and Mario Odyssey. That game is so much fun!

Oh man! That is awesome. Smite the hell out of them!

I love getting toys for Christmas, and my family knows I’m like 7 years old. I also got a Muppets coloring book and Muppet Mad Libs.

As for the Switch… I am fucking thrilled! I was shocked.
I haven’t really been home, so I just set it up to charge last night. My brother-in-law told me that Super Mario Odyssey is fun enough that it makes buying the system worthwhile. My best friend got her kid (and mostly herself) one for Christmas and she says she hasn’t even opened the other games yet. I can’t wait!

I had a blast with Mario Odyssey. There’s just so much joy built into that game.

Morning all. And with the Leafs idle last night the Bruins moved into second in the Atlantic because of the 587 games in hand they have.*

*Number may not be accurate.
