    We are going to try again. Fenway is crushed and I don’t have the stamina for this stuff anymore.

    We need to move forward. But realize we can’t ignore our new reality.

    What has been tearing us apart stops now. Done. Not debatable.

    We can still discuss Covid. But tightly held to reputable updates .
    That info could be important here. Data, Openings, MBTA news, Airport, Uber, groceries, day care, etc.....

    This will be a guiding principle to start in regard to Covid and demonstrations:

    We're treating it the same as any other political discussion. It's not permitted unless it is directly related to hockey. If a player. owner, hockey media or some well known hockey personality makes a comment that's fair grounds for a thread. Some guy with a twitter account who likes to talk about hockey, isn't. If the thread becomes a partisan political debate it may be closed. Posters warned, thread banned or removed where necessary.

    Local businesses reopens, schools, current things including demonstrations..but..NON POLITICAL - all good.

    Personal attacks will not be tolerated.
    Via Post or PM.
    That includes flaming the Moderator Team or their activity.

    Actions will be at the sole discretion of the Moderation Team.

    If anyone feels they cant abide by this they are best off not posting.

    We all came here for one thing in common . Our hockey club. It is what bound us in good time and bad. Let it be so again.

    For those that want to discuss and debate other current Covid related things please go here:

    Let’s not chase away good posters because they have different opinions. We all come to this site because we love the Bruins and that is our escape from the day to day bullshit.

    thanks Chuck.

    btw...just my opinion, I like having the OT food thread and OT music thread..

    I think they should stay...at least until we get hockey back.
    Lots of good content and folks get along.

    I love the food thread. Us everyday shmoes are doing very well in the kitchen!

    i mentioned the pizza to kick off the thread on a lighter (and positive) note. Cuz what kind of psycho doesn’t like pizza?!

    then i had a fleeting thought, checked the moderators list cuz i sense you and Fenway are beat up, and rightfully so. Then i realized we have more mods than i realized and I’m not welcome back anyway .

    i love ya no less

    My friends and I since the pandemic started have started doing brackets on different subjects. My friend doing all this has created a Facebook page and google forms to vote. It’s been amazing. Subjects we’ve done so far

    TV sitcoms
    Cereal
    Oscar winners for both actors and actresses
    Board games
    Candy

    Candy voting ended a few minutes ago

    i love this. might have to steal this idea.

    we’ve been doing trivia via zoom Saturday nights. Had 2 weeks of general trivia then switched to movies. So far we’ve done Dumb and Dumber, Major League, Ghostbusters, and the Princess Bride. I don’t know what’s up for next week but I’ve suggested Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Mighty Ducks, and the Sandlot.

    I’ll put up the finals brackets for each. It’s been making for great zoom discussions.

    Exactly. Anything online for me is something I do to get away from the b.s. It is what has kept me away, not that I'm any great shakes, but this has been my 'hockey place 'for over a decade. I miss it. It's sucked having it be turned into being politically equal to FB or any U.S. News outlet for me.

    I just wanted to say that I adore the 'Storytime with @Fenway' posts. They're one of my favorite things on here. I totally bit on the tale of two bars and which one would be showing which sport and embarrassingly assumed the wrong answer. A great little reminder on how we can so easily subconsciously stereotype.

    Nuggets of social history like these are invaluable. Thank-you for sharing.

    I’ll take a perfectly executed snickerdoodle over toll house every day of the week.

    dry and crumbly snickerdoodle? I give you toll house as the winner

    Politics is divisive even within friends and family but it was nice to learn more about Covid as it peaked here... so thanks to the Mods for allowing it in the first place.

    Probably best to stop it now. It'll be nice when hockey is back.
