Morning Free Association: Troy Brown! He Skates, He Scores!

I love it when the Boston teams have some cross-over, especially when it’s between my two favorite teams. Any Pats fan knows Troy Brown, the longtime receiver and sometime defensive back, who made one of the most memorable plays of the playoffs in 2007, stripping the ball from a Chargers CB who had just intercepted Tom Brady to negate the play. Troy Brown was capable of doing whatever was asked of him.

Having retired in 2007 after 15 seasons, Troy Brown has since been part of the NBC Sports Boston Midweek and Gameday coverage of the Patriots. This summer, he’s part of the Bruins Pan Mass Challenge Team for the benefit of the Dana-Farber cancer research. Prior to this weekend’s ride, Troy Brown met up with Bob Sweeney and other members of the Bruins Foundation team to take on the ice at Warrior Arena.

And you can see, Troy is a great sport. He takes a tumble and gets back up because he is a warrior.

I must admit that he is better on skates than I am.

Here’s hoping that Troy and the rest of the Bruins PMC team have a great ride this weekend.

Oh my god, had an issue at work that has been causing me wicked anxiety for about a week and it finally got resolved today and I don’t have to go back to a client with bad news!

Heya

The cross sports thing is pretty cool – they don’t do much of it over here I don’t think.

We’re at a family holiday camp for the next few days. Will HOPEFULLY be relaxing …

On the way we came through a twin called Lazy! I should move there.

I’m actually surprised they didn’t make him wear a helmet from an insurance standpoint. My wife couldn’t get on the ice to help our kid without a helmet on.

God no, way too uncoordinated for that.

Are looking to get him back into Learn to Skate/Play Hockey again this winter though,

Hey Pals!
I can skate like a pro athlete! Not a hockey pro, but….
We in the true doldrums now. Hockey, please. I have a double tonight, but it won’t be much like hockey – D league!!! Players who take penalties often say “Hey man, it’s hockey.”. No, sorry. This does not resemble hockey in any shape, manner, or form. Go to the box, please.
