You know what? I got nothing super hockey related to share, other than things I don’t really feel like commenting on.

Like how the 2022 IIHF World Junior tournament is now cancelled due to Covid. I won’t even mention how the Women’s Worlds were cancelled outright and the IIHF president Luc Tardiff denies that it was a gender issue.

The Bruins – Habs game that was supposed to be played right before the holiday break will now be played on January 12th in Boston. The game was originally a road game for the B’s but some Canadian cities like Montreal, Ottawa, and Toronto are trying to limit travel and play there, or something. Like I said, I don’t care too much about it to really comment on it.

However, there is one thing I would like to say today: Happy Birthday Stripes!

How old are you?

Finally got my covid booster shot yesterday, and boy are my arms tired.

No, no, really. I am annoyingly stiff.

Morning all. Did someone say birthdays!comment image?

Happy Birthday Stripes and LB!

In birthday related stuff, on the way to the radio show my cohost remembered his mother’s birthday is in a few days. I helped pick out the flowers to send her. He didn’t do the box of chocolates add on. Such an ungrateful son. lol

I used to send fruit & chocolates to my mom for mother’s day. She told me to stop because she lived in Florida and they’d be all melted & such.
It turns out that Florida is hot (and there are a lot more people who DGAF)!

I used to send chocolares to my mom when she lived in Florida. I always put a freezer pack in the box, insulated is as best i could, and sent it by speedy delivery. It worked

Happy B-day! I guess SSA isn’t as needy as AARP. Those guys start sending out applications the very second one turns 50. lol
Enjoy the kayaking!

SSA doesn’t really want you to file. I am making them do work and worse…. I want money!

Morning folks. That’s a shame about those international tournaments – I hadn’t heard about that.

I’m quite missing the hockey now. The skiing race I watched yesterday had three racers missing due to Covid out of a field of 60. That’s a pretty high percentage, if you apply it to a hockey league or a soccer league.

I was out all day yesterday celebrating my freedom and not having to worry about catching or transmitting the virus! Met a couple of old friends I havent seen for two and a half years. It was a good day!

And of course happy birthday Stripes! Hope you’re able to enjoy yourself. And thank you for our Christmas card, which arrived today!

You know, though, it’s also someone else’s birthday today wink

Happy birthday as well!

There’s a statistics phenomenon known as “the birthday problem” – it says that even though there are 365 days in a year, if you have 23 people in a room, there’s even odds on two people sharing a birthday.
It doesn’t seem like it makes sense, but when you do the math, it comes out that way.

Glad you’ve got your freedom back. I had 3 group visits during the Xmas season, none of them planned too far in advance – it felt good, but Omicron was around and I hadn’t gotten a booster, so I was a little covid-paranoid. Fortunately most of the others had already gotten boosters, and no one was sick.
