Morning Free Association: The Calm Before the Storm

It’s Friday and we have one more sleep until more Bruins hockey on Saturday. That game is on at 3pm on NBC. We’re going to miss Jack and Brick for this round and on.

Sorry, I don’t have much more to say about this right now.

I was going to leave it right there until I had to look for a picture to embed. I had a real WTF moment that may or may not be safe for work. I have a bunch of questions about this photo shoot:

1. Why did this happen?
2. How is this a Stanley Cup photo shoot?
3. Were there no pants/ trousers allowed?
4. Is this supposed to be sexy? How?
5. Whose house is that? Is that china hutch for sale? Is this just an elaborate ruse to sell things on Bay/ Craigslist?

I could go on. I don’t mean to shame the girls, I just think this is just objectification and perhaps shouldn’t be labeled in the way that it is. Or add men or something.

Forget I even brought this up.

Morning, hockey pals!

  • Can’t wait for the game tomorrow.
  • Vegas beat San Jose 7-0 last night. WHAT?
  • I was going to make a round 2 preview and it turns out it took me by surprise and started yesterday. Oops. THAT’S WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOUR TEAM CAN’T CLOSE IT OUT BEFORE SEVEN GAMES.
  • I got to work much later than I wanted to (but was still early). I was having one of those mornings where I just couldn’t get my contacts in and nothing was working for me. Now I’m here and everything is crazy.
  • Please defend the stretch pass and also put some pressure on Vasilevskiy.

    Morning all. So apparently the karma for the Bruins winning the series was for me to have an utter shit day at work yesterday. Hopefully I put most of the fires out and today is better.

    Hi folks.

    As far as I can tell, tomorrow’s game will not be blacked out for me. Exciting.

    Great Britain play Italy tonight at hockey in a game that would possible see GB promoted to the World Championship proper next year. Even more exciting!

    Wow, Vegas (the team, not the dog) – how the hell is this happening?!

    Who knows what that photshoot is all about?! Did all the teams do one like that? I thought we were past those days now. Pants/trousers are overrated though, to be fair…

    In spite of myself, I love the Vegas story, and hope they make it to the final.

    I can only explain it with depth – they got to pick players from a bigger and better-understood pool than most draft situations, and while they lucked into a few legit star players -Fleury, Neal – they’ve mostly got a great collection of 2nd tier players.

    I’m OK with that, as long as the story ends with them losing to the Bruins.
