Morning Free Association: Fan Favorites

Embed from Getty Images

When your team is no longer in the hunt for the Stanley Cup (maybe that’s where the B’s went wrong, hunting instead of playing hockey to win it), this time of year can be very slow. We should really call them the sloth days of summer.

Sloth days

It’s fitting because it is indeed officially summer and everything with the Bruins has basically stopped until the expansion draft.

Anyway, in addition to the actual NHL Awards, the NHL is releasing the results of the Fan Favorite voting. I know, I know this is kind of stupid but hear me out: two Bruins won this voting.

First, let’s go to Locker Room Legend. Your new LRL is David Pastrnak!

Admittedly, I have no idea what this category means but I assume it has everything to do with the look that Pasta sported before, during, and after the outdoor game, the one in which he scored the hat trick. Oh, and the Barbie Girl song.

Who knows what will be playing when he gets back?

Pasta wasn’t the only Bruin to get some fan love. Fans recognized that the team has a male model among their ranks, one who looks good in just about anything he wears and what he wears is very fashionable.

Dreamy.

The Lightning curb-stomped the Islanders last night. I am teh amused.

There were a couple of fracases that resulted in like 20 penalties assessed & 4 misconducts. The first apparently set off by Barzal cross-checking a guy in the face, and then again after the guy was down.

I’d expect supplemental discipline, but it’s the Isles’ star forward so…
The second was a fairly uninteresting crosscheck that resulted in a bunch of little scrums.

Didn’t even look at the post until now. (I like to check it for typos & auto-publish schedule before anyone reads to make sure it’s ready to go)

I blame Marchand & Miller.

I saw the Masterton was out. Am surprised that Miller wasn’t a finalist, but not surprised at the winner.

Very psyched for Beatercross this Saturday. It’s going to be at a more accessible location this year in hopes more people will participate or watch. 4 boater heats racing through a fairly challenging rapid. Bumping and jostling encouraged!!!! Woo hoo!!!! Gotta break out the big boat!!

Morning all. Getting myself out the door this morning was a chore.

Ah – are you back in the office full time now?

Our guidance is still to work from home if we can (still got restrictions in place), but I think even things are ‘back to normal’ they are prepared for us to take a more flexible approach to office working.

We’re doing the flex approach with a few days in the office and the rest at home. My schedule now is Tuesdays and Thursdays full day at the office. Wednesdays I split: morning at the office then afternoon at home.

That sounds like a good balance.

That is where my office is heading, but we’re still a month away from bringing people back. They’re claiming that people will no longer have assigned desks, but that’s largely a pipe dream.
“Hey, I need a 24-cpu compile host, a testbed for 40Gbs NIC cards and a jump box for my lab setup. Is that ‘in the cloud’ somewhere?”

Something wonderful that came out of the pandemic…. companies found out that expenses were lower and employees were happier when employees worked remote.

I’m going to be looking at going in one day a week, I think. There are some things I miss. Not too many though!

Only people that aren’t happy are the owners of office buildings not having tenets anymore. Gee, if only there was something they could convert the empty space into. Like say, affordable housing……

Morning all.

When is the expansion draft, again? Oh, after the Stanley Cup has been awarded, I guess. That’s still going on, right? silly

Tough few days at work. I know 10 hour days are common in the States but us delicate English flowers aren’t used to it! So drained. Still, two days off now to recharge. And tomorrow it’s not even supposed to rain. Gotta love the summer!

Oof, that is rough. Enjoy the days off and hopefully the kicky ball contest ends soon!

I forget how lucky I am…. To be able to set your own work and rest schedule is awesome… Hard to stay disciplined, at times, but worth it.

Good Morning!!
I’m not a big fan of these type of media fueled “awards”. Yes, Pasta is adorable. Bruin fans know that. We don’t always want to share our guy. Let your boring playoffs go on without the personally magnetic trio that we love, NHL. Admit that your officiating sucks, award the 2019 Cup to the B’s, and give St Patrice the Selke. Then Bruin fans may concede the use of our awesome team’s images to boost your awful ratings…….. Wow! I better have more coffee and talk to y’all a bit later… :-0
