Morning Free Association: Invasion!


On Saturday, the Montreal Canadiens alumni strike team snuck into neighboring Rhode Island to visit an apparent member of their 5th column in North Smithfield. That’s right, Guy LaFleur, Yvan Cournoyer, Guy Lapointe and Rejean Houle were BEHIND OUR LINES in Bruins country this weekend.

How did they get in? Did someone leave poutine lying about? Did someone fail to lock the door?
Come on Vermont, YOU HAD ONE JOB.

This raises the question…
WHAT CAN WE DO TO STOP THESE INCURSIONS?

We could recite the Canadian national anthem ENTIRELY IN ENGLISH, like civilized provinces do. MWAH HAH HA HA HA!
Nah, that’s decidedly un-American
I believe we can charge them under 18 USC ยงยง 951 – Agents of a Foreign Hockey Team – and thus subject to fine or 10 years in the penalty box, but I don’t think we’ve had an extradition treaty with the Bell Centre since 2001.

Could we hire Gerry Cheevers & Brad Park to stop those pesky Habs?
Eh, that never worked back in the day, I doubt it will work now.

Maybe I’m onto something, though. Can we hire the Minnesota North Stars or perhaps the post-merger Islanders dynasty to chase these guys off? Can we teach New Hampshire to run the 1-3-1 trap?

Can we fix the problem at it’s source? Get rid of these traitors in our lands?


Et tu, Brian Boucher?
I can’t even look at you anymore.

Perhaps we can start a re-education campaign… we can put billboards of Michel Therrien and Marc Bergevin on the highway, as a warning to any hockey fan who might be Hab-curious.

Hello, my new phone appears to load B2B correctly, which is different than my old phone. With that in mind I am looking forward to spending time here again. Today I am taking the day off and drinking an Epic SOB coffee & cocoa stout while eating a slice of peanut butter pie. Slainte

So, I expressed my displeasure with Boosh and he replied back.

I hope he does make up for it by teaming up with Goucher for some NBCSN games this season to talk about Rhode Island stuff.

Did you watch the storms from your porch Saturday evening? We had some great lightning shows in Monroe.

Didn’t have any storms in my neighborhood. Or I was just so tired I missed them.

Hey Pals!
Those Habs didn’t come through Happy Valley. My carpenter ( a goalie AND a Bruin fan ) would have shot ’em!
Speaking of Happy Valley, two days of work and no boating. A great weekend just the same. Mo progress!!!
Need more sleep!!!

Come on Vermont, YOU HAD ONE JOB.

I blame Sis lol

I am currently at the top of Dumbier- one of the highest peaks in the Low Tatra mountains – after a 4-hour entirely uphill hike! Probably the most physically demanding thing I’ve ever done. Looking forward to getting back down!
