Morning Free Association: Worse Getting Worser

Imagine the worst thing that could happen to the Boston Bruins. Now imagine the almost-next worse thing to happen to the Bruins: captain Patrice Bergeron, is now in Covid protocol.

This news comes on the heels of two other Bruins being placed in the protocol days after playing in Calgary against the Flames. The Flames have more than an outbreak with a whopping 27 players and personnel in the Covid protocol.

Of course, the Flames are not the only Canadian team dealing with this issue; Vancouver is having it’s fair share of issues after the Hurricanes played there this weekend.

In short, the NHL is a mess with Covid.

Ontario is now restricting crowd capacity in sports arenas.

And Canada is getting ready to impose more travel restrictions for non-essential travel.

We’ll keep an eye on this as things develop. As for the Bruins, they are still planning on playing the New York Islanders in Belmont tonight at 7:30pm.

Things we learned at the office this week: You can’t use the toaster and the microwave at the same time. It cuts the power to my laptop! lol

Morning all. So glad I got new winter boots so the weather can be warm and rainy!

Heading for 57°f in Monrovia today! Got to get outside, even if it’s wet.

Yesterday’s headline:
“Bergeron nets only goal in Tuesday night loss to Golden Knights”

COVID:
“Oh, I can fix that!”

A long time friend and hockey coach pal wrote this op ed for the hartford courant about growing mistrust and disinformation about Covid

Good piece, that – he talks a lot of sense your friend.

I do think, though, that Covid denial isn’t quite as prevalent as it seems – it’s just that the deniers tend to shout so loud and so frequently about it that they seem a bigger crowd than they are. I’ve got Facebook “friends” who I’ve blocked because it gets to a stage where that’s ALL they post about. Obsessive, brainwashed behaviour, and they think they’re the ones talking sense!

Yes, the old “talk louder technique”…. i’m thinking that science will catch up to that group, eventually

Morning all,

What a time to be alive, eh?!

Considering al these players and staff are vaccinated, this has got to be Omicron, right? The good news is if it spreads as fast as it seems to it’ll peak pretty early – maybe by the end of the year – and then there’ll be good immunity by the time winter really starts to bite.

Playing a few matches without Bergy and Marchy doesn’t give much incentive to tune in, but I suppose plenty of teams are struggling.

Was supposed to be our department Christmas bash tonight, but that’s been shelved due to lack of willing particpants.

Sadly, i am thinking of cancelling any Christmas and end of year celebrations. Jo and i have continued to be safe in public, but it seems only half the population are very concerned.

Hey, it’s only two weeks until our birthday! I’m hoping for another crate of Belgian beers like I got last year!
