Hey kids! You loved the Winter Classic now is time for you to love NHL All Star Weekend*

The NHL announced the incomplete ASG rosters. There aren’t too many surprises other than everyone’s favorite carbohydrate gets his first nod!

pasta!

Yes, David Pastrnak was voted to the Atlantic Division team as the sole Bruins player. And I figure that he needs a buddy, a guy who makes him better all the time, everyone’s favorite form of perfection, the man who was made for 3-on-3 hockey, Patrice Bergeron.

Icethetics is officially on Jersey Watch 2019 and reports that the Bruins are definitely looking to add a third jersey in the next season. While it is technically an away jersey, the current Winter Classic jersey is a strong choice for a unique looking alternate jersey; it has just enough color to look like a home sweater. Of course, the Bruins could choose either of the previous WC designs or go bold with a new design or a home gold. Who knows?

Back at work after a few days off. I’m not with it at all.

Looks like I didn’t get the job I applied for a few weeks back, but that is okay. Some similar opportunities with way shorter commutes (but less pay) are popping up in town. The longest commute I ever had was 30 minutes, and I hated it. This would have been 45 minutes to an hour. Yes, all you Boston commuters are yelling at me.

Dode! I commuted an hour and a half each way for almost two years! Took a huge pay cut to get my life back.

You know it’s been a fun renewal season when you’re doing year end housekeeping and you create a pile literally labeled “Problem Pile”

Awesome. But that sounds like it could start a competition.

In spite of what a whiner he is on the ice (because he’s getting hacked constantly), i get the impression that he’s an okay guy.

Morning, hockey pals!

I’m on day 10 of Western Feline Encephalitis. A little worn out. Winter Classic was fun but I would never take the train again (didn’t sleep a wink, so I flew home instead, and what a great flight), and I think I would actually drive to such a remote location if I had it to do over. The train from Chicago to South Bend took a couple hours, and kept stopping on the way back because of wiring issues.

All in all, it was a fun game with a really fun crowd.

I’m a little jealous. I would definitel drive there. ROAD TRIP!!!!!!!
Of course, the Bs probably won’t be in another Dub Cee for fifty years, or so. I’ll drive!!

Have driven there & back again – it’s a little too far to drive in a single travel day, and Indiana is boring as hell.
But if you take it in 2 stages, you can get hot wings in Buffalo and spend a little time in Cleveland or Columbus, which are interesting enough for a single afternoon or evening if you google ahead for stuff to do.

Morning all. Piles of paperwork and no desire to do anything about it.

The roof is being done! Yay!
Unfortunately, i didn’t believe it would happen and had to scramble to cover everything inside. A jar of honey fell and ,without Tuukka like reflexes, i missed it and had to watch it crash to the floor.
Sticky situation. Our kitchen is stickier than the floor of a porn shop! (Sorry, not sorry for that image).(That one might stick with ya!)
