Morning Free Association: Are You the Next Rene?

Embed from Getty Images

Rene Rancourt retired from his official status as anthem singer for the Boston Bruins after last season. Rancourt was their anthem singer for 42 years. Regrettably, his retirement was after a second round exit and not after a Stanley Cup win.

Now the Bruins are looking for his replacement.

Do you have what it takes?

Presumably, one needs to meet the following requirements:

  • Must be able to sing on-key at least most of the time
  • Must be able to memorize the words to at least two national anthems and a few Christmas carols
  • Must look good in black & gold
  • Must have a mustache
  • Must give two fist pumps after completion of anthems in support of the home team
  • These last two requirements are from our own phonymahoney.

    Don’t worry guys, I have your back and I’ve got the gig all wrapped up.

    Morning all. I think my neighbors are trying to put a curse on me. They have two tiki idol type things outside now and the faces point directly at me when I go out on my porch.

    That’s freaky,. Have you confronted them about it (or upset them in some way)?

    I’m a very quiet neighbor! I think it’s more just them leaving stuff outside instead of in a garage or something. At least I hope that’s the case! smile

    Good morning, hockey pals-

  • I am not the next Rene, but I was the last Rene.
  • I will miss him. I know a lot of people think he did a crappy job but I love that he sang the songs the way they’re supposed to be sung and didn’t make them his own. You can’t do that to a national anthem.
  • This thread had me snorting this morning.

  • I love the summer but I’m impatient for October to get here already!
  • Signed up for September hockey!

    I love Rancourt and will miss him as well. Fuck all the “wah he’s over the top” haters. IT’S OKAY TO HAVE FUN PEOPLE!

    It just occurred to me – is “snake breeder” an actual profession?
    I am filled with questions.

    Are there “Spider Ranchers”?
    “Locust Farmers”?
    “Trash Panda Genealogists”?

    All I know is that I do not want to know if there are spider ranchers or locust farmers. I do love a trash panda, though.

    What about cockroach herders?

    Definitely in the tail – most (all?) snakes already have two massive knives in their mouth!

    Hey Pals!
    Even my shower rendition of our anthem is woeful, at best. It’s better if I lip sync it!t
    So, Donny, make with the big deal already!!
    Quiet day here, then FRIDAY!!!!!!!
