Morning Free Association: Dobby!

Truthfully, I’m only peripherally paying attention to the Stanley Cup Playoffs right now. I haven’t been watching full games but rather getting some glimpses from time to time, checking on scores more than actually watching. But one thing that might make me perk up in the next couple of weeks is this: Anton Khudobin is going to be the starting goalie in the Stanley Cup Final.

Dobby, who might just be a cuddly animal in human form (maybe a Golden Retriever? Maybe a Corgi?), earned the starting gig in the playoffs after the usual strater Ben Bishop was deemed unfit to play for a few games. Then when he was able to play, he had a terribad game, so Khudobin was back to starting.

And he’s doing a great job. In these playoffs, he’s 11-6 with a 2.67 GAA and .918 save percentage.

He may have been on all the teams but he’ll always be our Dobby. We can share him because that is exactly what he wants.

Believe in Dobby!

Hey everyone!

I’m really wondering why Dobby ended up on all of those teams? I mean when he left Boston, he was an NHL caliber goalie, good enough to start on many teams, yet he’s getting dumped to the Checkers? And the Gulls? I mean it’s not like Cam Ward as tearing it up for the Canes at the time.

Yes! It wasn’t quite 1 and 1A like it is with Jaro, but it was obvious Robby was JUL caliber

G g g good M m m morning,
It’s cold! Shouldn’t we have at least one more summer, albeit a brief one?
Awesome for Dobby. He’s reminds me of Seth Macfarlane’s “Ted”, but with Roussion accent, da? His success does put some juice back in the playoffs for me, as well. I confess, I haven’t watched much the last week or two.

Had to put on the warm coat for my morning walk! (Probably would have been fine with a hoodie but that would have meant an extra couple of steps over to the dresser and who has time for that in the morning! lol )

Hope your warm coat wasn’t full of holes like mine was when I took it out! Little carpet-beetle buggers!

Oooff!
And the clothes they go for are the natural fibers – wool & the like. In other words, the ones that look nice and cost a lot of money.

I think I’m gonna get more cedar coat hangers now.

Yeah, we got the carpets professionally cleaned and invested in a steam cleaner for clothes.

I’ve got a bag of cedar litter. Should put a bowl in the closet. Can’t use it for litter because Nugget thought it was for sleeping on and not peeing on.

Subsequently, Nugget has never been infested by moths or carpet beetles!
