Guys, I don’t really have anything for you today. I’m struggling to get something else done this week. In the meantime, I’m sure you’ll find something Bruinsy to chat about. Happy 10th of January, Merry Christmas Love Richie, Brett, and Lisa and it’s always a glorious day to hate the Habs!

Bwahahahaha!!!!!! So great!! Back in my day ( pieistocene era ) kids would have asked what that meant. Nowadays they are explaining it. BTW, pleistocene – another exception to the wonderful English language rule i before E. It’s a 6-5 pick ’em as Derek Sanderson would say.

It really is amazing how bad they are with those players. They were joint favourites for the cup before the start of the season!

Morning, pals!

  • Didn’t get as much done yesterday as I had planned. Did attend a doctor’s appointment with Mamma Mahoney, who needs surgery on the hiatal hernia she’s had for at least my entire life. Wow!
  • I have a fucking fantastic skate last night and I feel like I got past a dumb issue I’ve been having that’s related to crossovers, public skates only going in one direction, and having a bad right knee. Yes, that means I haven’t been able to do crossovers while turning right since I started this hockey thing back up again. BUT(!) last night I was forced to do so several times by my skating guy and while they were sloppy at best, I somehow managed to stay upright AND my knee feels excellent today.
  • I left the rink in a really good place last night, so I feel much less terrified of this whole adventure.
  • Oh hockey, we hardly knew ye! Come back to us!

    I wasn’t but hopefully I am now? If I’m not, I’ll have to open the Phonymahoney Center For Kids Who Don’t Skate Good.

    Wohoo! Glad you had a good skating day!

    USA Hockey now calls them crossunders to emphasize driving the inside leg (on an outside edge) under your body as that’s where the power comes from. Laura Stamm’s book “Power Skating” emphasizes edges. Hope your skating coach does, too.

    Yeah, definitely more of a push-under than a crossover!

    Morning Pals!
    Got to see some of Preds/ Oilers last night. Great stuff! Really need some Bruins hockey, though.
    Who needs to be traded this week? If Sweenius could unload Belesky, I would be mighty impressed!
    Didn’t get off the ice until almost midnight last night. Jo ordered me to stay in bed this morn and made her own brekkie. Thanks, Darlin’. I now feel fresh as a southie kid with an attitude!
    Single tonight, just keep moving through the Bruins bye week.
    Sleep!!!!!

    When is the deadline? Wouldn’t be too surprised if Bs do nothing. Spooner’s value is probably quite high at the moment, he’s been in good form

    BEST!

    Also, my guess on BOT was that Patches would be traded by MLK Day.

    I have a feeling we only get to dump him if someone is having serious problems getting to the cap floor. We may even have to package him with a draft pick just to get rid of him.

    Morning peeps,

    I see the Habs have won two straight. They can pack that in! Although one of those was against the Canucks who are even worse than them.

    Anaheim are doing much than I realised.

    Had a brilliant day yesterday with my darts teammates, chucking some friendly arrers in the daytime and then went to watch at the world amateur darts championship.

    A bit delicate this morning but not as bad as most of the others. Some of us are playing in a Singles knockout competition this evening- I don’t fancy our chances!

    If I know Anaheim (and I’m pretty sure I do), they are up to a lot of douchebaggery.

    Hahaha. Much worse! Not enough coffee yet. For me, not the Ducks.

    Question, how does one focus on the dartboard with all that stuff around it?

    All adds to the pressure! Makes sense it more of a test
