Morning Free Association: Happy New Year, Everybody

Happy New Year! Can you believe that it’s 2020? I can’t. That was the first time I attempted to write the year so far this new year and I nailed it!

Nailed it!

Of course, it’s probably because 2019 sucked so bad that I was ready to kick it the hell out of my life like the refs kicked Corey Perry out of the 2020 Winter Classic for elbowing Ryan Ellis three minutes into the game.

Shocking, I know! Anyway, he’s going to pay a visit to the NHL DoPS. Have fun on your vacay, buddy!

Anyway, the great thing about yesterday’s game was the reveal of two Dunkin micro-commercials featuring Kendall Coyne-Schofield and David Pastrnak. There were two but I could only find footage of one:

He’s adorable! And don’t hurt his feelings!

That may not have been the best part of yesterday’s Winter Classic- that would be the piglet racing during TV timeouts.

And the piglet’s names are choice:

Okay, all of that is so best. Excellent work, Texas.

Anyway, if you’re curious as to how former Bruins Zac Rinaldo and Milan Lucic are and what they’ve been doing, apparently they former a new club called “Hair Bleach for Men”. I swear, from far away, Looch looks like he’s bald.

So all of this is probably a welcome distraction from talking about the bad game the Bruins ended 2019 with. Let’s hope they’ve replaced the calendar, turned the page and are ready to play like they want to make the playoffs.

Bruins are back home tonight against the Columbus Blue Jackets. By the way, the Blue Jackets backup goalie is starting now due to a meniscus injury to Joonas Korpisalo that he’s already had surgery for and with which he will be out 4-6 weeks. Their backup is a Elvis Merzlikins. I could tell right away that he was Latvian because they are plural, always.

The game is on at 7pm.

And the county fair was a nice touch to the Winter Classic.

(Peaky Bruins still win everything, though.)

Happy new year folks!

Y’know, the good thing about having a habit of losing to crap teams, is that there are no crap teams in the playoffs!

I think I forgot to tell you about the game we went to in Slovakia. Little Bear has never seen the home team lose, and the game was scoreless after two periods (good defence from both teams, who each killed off 80+ seconds of 5-on-3 during the game).

But with six minutes to go, they managed to break the deadlock for a 1-0 win!

We had seats on the glass too (7 Euro per ticket). A kid further along our row collected a puck that went over the glass and at the end of the game one of the players gave him a stick as well. Good stuff.

Elvis in net for CBJ tonight, huh? Maybe he’ll get all shook up!
Where did that tumbleweed come from?
