Morning Free Association: Your Stanley Cup Final

If at the beginning of the year you predicted that the Stanley Cup Final would be played between the Dallas Stars and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Lightning, give yourself a pat on the back. If you also had “viral pandemic forces SCF to be played in mid-September” on your 2020 bingo card, you may want to play the lottery.

Last night, the Islanders saw the end of their road in the playoffs after taking the game to overtime. I mean, I guess we can call it that considering the teams had much difficulty scoring on each other, even with the Bolts taking nearly twice as many shots on goal as the Isles through the entire game. Still, the Isles didn’t want to die.

But, they did and now we all can root against the Lightning. Because Dobby. The spirit animal we need but don’t deserve.

Seriously, let’s ride this Dobby wave all the way to the Stanley Cup.

(By the way, the Bolts touched the Prince of Wales trophy! Isn’t that bad luck?)

Hi all,

Y’know what – I’m gonna say it. Tampa have been a really good team for a long time, and they deserve a Cup. I won’t be sorry if they win it.

That said, Dallas have some great players who also deserve a championship title. Let the best team win!

Looks like I’ve won the Bearly on Topic bracket challenge! @GH – I’ll forward my address so you can send my prize wink

I appreciate that Tampa has been the best team since returning from the break but eh, fuck those guys.
I’m pretty partisan when my team was in the mix.

I completely missed “wave” when I first read this and thought we were supposed to ride Dobby.

Couldn’t figure out yesterday why there was an obscene amount of truck traffic yesterday then realized it was propane and pellet trucks making deliveries because it’s getting down into the 30s at night here!

My apartment’s doing a good job of staying warm so far. I did pull out the quilt, though. Guess I’m taking out the air conditioner this weekend!

September in New England – when both air conditioning and wood stoves are needed.
It’s as if your home needs to wear layers.

Hey Pals!
Can’t touch this! The Bolts are going down!!! Yes, Dobby is just what the world needs right now!!
I’m so exhausted after these work days in Monrovia. We have the boss’ dog for the foreseeable future. The poor little thing is blind, only hears out of one ear, but has a great sense of smell. He is also very cuddly. He went with me yesterday. I put his bed on the passenger seat and he sleeps while i pet him. He’s a great companion!!
Okay, nap time.

Seems like a good dog. I don’t think I could deal with another dog with so many medical issues for a while. Am also kinda pissed off at the one we’ve got because he’s been biting at us when he wants to play.
