Morning Free Association: Your Five Fave Bruins…GO!

Embed from Getty Images

Ah yes, here we are in the wasteland of the crappiest year on record this millenium. I mean 2016 was bad with all sorts of notable talents leaping off this mortal coil (Bowie, Prince, Carrie Fisher) but 2020 takes the cake.

Yes, hockey season should be happening right now and Tuukka Rask, in a normal season, would just about now be righting his ship after a poor first three weeks. But, 2020 and the ‘Rona have screwed all that up.

2020

So with free agency dying down after a not so hot nor heavy 2 days, everyone is trying to stoke interest in hockey content without having the obvious hockey content. Since I didn’t feel like reading any articles and I’m feeling lazy, I present you with this: Pick your fave five Bruins.

Now, I know, there are obvious names missing, like these players from a different era

Milt Schmidt
Woody Dumart
Bobby Bauer

Willie O’Ree

And some modern favorites:

Johnny Boychuk

Anton Khudobin
Rich Peverley
Tomas Kaberle
Brett Connolly
Either of the Ritchie brothers

Ok, from the modern era, I have Pasta & Marchand for many reasons
From my childhood, I have Phil Esposito and a player who has recently pissed me off so much that I refuse to type his name.

A 5th is hard, because there are so many to choose from – peak Lucic was pretty fun. Brad Park was a lot of fun. Bergy is as consistent as a clock. Etc.

Hey All!
Five faves?? That’s a tough one. Ray Bourque, Rick Middleton, Brad Marchand, Nevin Markwart, and Bobby Orr. That’s off the top of my head. There are too many honorable mentions to mention.
So quiet here! I hear the river, a few birds, and the faint rustle of a few dried leaves.
Jo is taking tomorrow off. She’s coming up this evening. Sweet!

One of the reasons I love getting up early, it’s so nice and relaxing to enjoy the quiet.

Hi folks,

Only five?! Ok, I’ll only pick players active since I’ve followed the Bs (2011),

1 Pasta – cos how can you not love him?!
2 Bergy – ditto
3 Zee – a model player, leader, human …
4 Looch (when he was good)
5 Jagr – I know he didn’t contribute much but the guy’s a legend and it’s great the Bs managed to get him to one last SCF.

We’re supporting local business by having a Fish & Chips tonight – I can’t wait! I used to live on takeaways before I met Sonia (when strangely I was also stick-thin) but now it’s once every couple of months. Cod, chips and curry sauce, with tons of salt & vinegar – I can taste it already!

Sounds delicious! Red, green, or yellow curry?

Kinda yellowish. It’s like a thick gravy with curry powder in it. Great for dipping!

Mmmmm… that sounds pretty good w/ fish & chips.

Now I am reminded that there is a Chinese restaurant in Framingham that has a fish & pepper dish that is not really curry-like but has a super spicy thing going on, obviously inspired by Thai fish basil. It’s hard to find on the menu and not available at lunch, bt it is so good. And so spicy.

Oooh – not had a Thai for years. Will have to remedy that soon
