Morning Free Association: Noted Doctor

The NHLPA has caught on to the Timmyheads. Yesterday, their website had a story about the Schaller brothers and that time that Tim had a life saving asset in defeating his brother’s rare blood disease, Aplastic Anemia.

“When I was in college, I got really sick and needed a bone marrow transplant,” recalled Dave, who was also diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2006. “We did all the testing and Tim was my donor. He saved my life. We were in and out of the hospital for about nine weeks.”

Dave Schaller decided to hold tribute for his brother upon making to the NHL with the Buffalo Sabres in 2013 and continued the tradition when Tim signed with their home team, the Boston Bruins.

Sales of Timmyhead shirts and cutouts through Tim Schaller’s website benefit The Jimmy Fund. They’ve raised about $4200 so far. It’s pretty clear that Dave is proud of Tim.

“Every single time I see him out there, it blows my mind,” said Dave. “I have a few friends in Philadelphia, so we went for the weekend. We actually went down to the glass for warm-ups, which I never usually do. Seeing Tim up-close on the ice, saying hello to the fans – I go to games a lot, see him out there and that’s great – and seeing him up-close and personal, interacting with the fans, I think that’s the coolest thing I’ll experience. Making the NHL is a lifelong dream we both had and it just continues to blow my mind every time I see it. And I don’t think it will ever stop.”

Soooo yeah…Ryan Donato…

Maybe the smart plan is to not do anything at the trade deadline and just sign that kid

Morning, pals!

  • Crazy in this place today. We have a super important supplier giving a seminar so the place is crawling with humans.
  • With that, this is an industry built by C students for C students, so it’s always a fun crowd.
  • I may punch the receptionist (who I love dearly) and the shipping department today, though.
  • I think I did something bigger than bruise myself when I ate shit at the rink the other night. Here’s hoping that is not the case.

    Rest, ice, probably not compression, but elevation. Kick back and watch some Olympics. Ice is for bruise and booze!

    Does this seminar include free samples and if so can you send them to my office?

    We’re talking about the booze industry, right? More like an industry built by C students to turn C students into D & F students.

    Working on evaluations this morning. We have to evaluate our partners in every game. WTF? Bill skates well, calls a great game. We also have to give a tier rating, 1 – 4. 4 being the top tier – can do prep school boys, 1 = should just stay home.

    Morning all. No strange dreams last night. Just a random conversation about goal differentials.

    Hey Pals!
    Reffed an ugly game last night. Plenty of fisticuffs. It always amuses me when players want us to break up a fight. “Fuck you! You break it up. You’re not as smart or as good looking as I am, so you have less to lose.”
    Today is another day. I will make twice as much and work half as hard – middle school game.
    Enjoy the day!! Snow tomorrow night.

    Ah, so you can go from fisticuffs on the ice to fisticuffs in the stands between parents! lol

    How much is a ton? Metric or standard ton?

    I think in metric, it’s a tonne. More mass needs a bigger word.
    There’s also the imperial/long ton(ne) which is bigger than both.
