Morning Free Association: The Second Half

Embed from Getty Images

Tomorrow night, the Boston Bruins are back on the ice in Montreal at the Centre Bell to start the second half of their season. Technically it’s still game 41 after the postponement of the FancyCats visit last week. Speaking of which, that game has been rescheduled.

Joe MacDonald of the Boston Sports Journal has outlined some key areas of importance that should be the focus of the Bruins going into the next part of the season. Here’s what he has to say:

Stuff

This is a prime time to test Tuukka against the Habs. Do it Saturday!

I think as long as they can keep the injury bug at bay, give players proper maintenance days to prevent more, and as long as the young guys can overcome this lengthy season, the Bruins should be in good shape. As for trade dealine stuff- I’m fine if Sweeney doesn’t make any acquisitions. As intriguing as it would be to get Simmonds, I’d much rather work on getting that elusive and mythical left shot defenseman. I’m sure you all have different thoughts on that.

One last thing: Zdeno Chara is joining the social media world- Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

Just wait for Haggs to write an article about how Chara is trying to start his real estate business or wants to be like Tom Brady or some crap.

Okay really, this is the last thing: Finally a new Bearly on Topic episode is out. We’re catching up with some stuff after our break.

Is there anyone Chara didn’t tag in his Instagram post? Also, Bruins Trump followed me and I feel kind of special.

He follows me, too. I really enjoy Bruins Trump, and I think he might be someone we might know?

He is, and I have no idea who he is. I think he follows me.

I sometimes think the Real Don Sweeney account is the work of HHG.

I suspect I would recognize who TheDonSweeney is if I found out. No clue who Bruins Trump is. (Maybe a Barstool or DoY guy?)

I would say DoY over Barstool, because whomever it is is following me.

  • Busy morning on our end. Lots happening!
  • Now that I think of it… who is “our”? I am one person! We think?
  • Can we get in trouble for copying & pasting articles that are behind a paywall? Hope not!
  • I need this Montreal game to start. I also need BU to be playing at 4 instead of 5 so I’m not late to watching the Montreal game. We all know I will not be watching the Pats, but will be rooting for them somewhere in the back of my mind.
  • The rain in Norwood falls mainly on the… uh. Something.

    It’s SatanMother’s birthday tomorrow so I’ll probably miss some of the start. Though the weather is supposed to be uber crappy tomorrow who knows if we get together.

    And if you need a rink to skate around on, feel free to use the parking lot behind my apartment. Holy cow it was dicey this morning.

    Yikes!
    Super warm for us today and lots of snow and ice is melting, so that’s a huge plus.

    Happy birthday, SatanMama!

    Tomorrow we are supposed to get ALL THE WEATHER! Rain, sleet, snow, temps dropping back down.

    BTW I love that SatanMamma’s twitter says “I’m not cute”.

    Calling my mom cute is the worst insult you could hurl at her.

    My mother gets offended when we call her little. “IM NOT LITTLE, WHY DOES EVERYONE CALL ME LITTLE”

    Unless you live in a flood-prone area. There’s also supposed to be about 1.5 inches of rain between today & tomorrow.

    There’s a flood warning where I am right now due to an ice jam. Yay weather!

    Happy birthday to SatanMother! That doesn’t sound like the kind of weather to be a horsey person. Hope the forecast is wrong.

    Holy cow it was dicey this morning.

    Did you see the video clip of the guy coming out his front door and sliding down the street? One of the funniest things I’ve ever seen!

    You’re really pulling for him at the beginning because he made a good recovery but then it all goes horribly wrong. As it often does when ice is involved.

    It’s a bad feeling….. wondering when and how you will stop!

    Particularly if “in the street, hit by a car” is a very real possibility for the answer to that question.

    Morning all. The Great Prosciutto Crisis has been averted. I had rosemary focaccia topped with goat cheese and The Almighty Prosciutto for dinner last night because I am a little miss fancy pants.
