Hooray! We made it to the end of the week!

Yesterday, the NHL announced that Phase 3, which isn’t lasers everywhere but rather training camp, will begin on July 10th for the 24 teams that have either claimed a playoff spot or are trying to do so.

Of course, with the caveats that health and safety issues allow and that the players union agrees to the plan.

Switching things up, David Pastrnak has won the Czech Player of the Year Award, The Golden Hockey Stick, for the fourth year in a row.

He matches a record held by Jaromir Jagr, who won from 2005-2008. Jagr has won this award 12 times, the most of any Czech player since it’s inception in 1969. Pasta is only 24 years old and will have many more successful years ahead of him to beat that record.

Speaking of Pasta, this was a fun exchange.

He’s just so precious.

Morning all. Technically off work today because birthday but it’s not like there’s anything better to do with Stay at Home! Will probably just do the bare minimum and check email every now and then and slack off the rest of the day.

Happy birthday!

I thought it was tomorrow because I knew it was the same date as that game we don’t talk about, forgetting that said game started at 1am the next day here!

Oh right, you’re in the future. You could have warned us that it was going to go horribly wrong!!

Hi folks.

Yay, Pasta! Can’t wait to see him back in action.

Some good news on a personal level – I’m going back to work! Starting Tuesday. It doesn’t mean I’m totally out of the woods with the whole redundancy thing, as that is still being finalised, but it does mean I’m back up to full pay (from 80%) and makes me feel a bit more wanted! smile

Congrats on something more closely resembling employment.

Work for me continues to be a little strange and fluid.

Good Morning!!! It’s really happening! I can’t say I’m totally in board, but you know I’ll be watching when the games begin.
So yesterday was National Bourbon Day and I didn’t have a drop… What is going on?? 2020 can bite me…. already has, I guess. \_0_/

I allowed myself a wee drop, although I didn’t realise it was Bourbon day!
