    Not a bad item on the menu...I love the grilled chicken sandwich the best...followed by the fish sandwich.

    Of course, the frozen custard is heaven in a spoon...

    Holy moly! I just found out this weekend that Jesse Gabrielle (the one and only) played in the Australian hockey league this winter for the Canberra team (Canberra Braves). The season just ended but apparently he was untouchable. So weird, the level of play here is similar to strong high school hockey in MA. So I'd expect him to dominate. I probably would have gone to a game if I'd have known.

    I'm making a point of going to the closest Friendly's this week. It's a 20 minute drive but I don't care.

    My son is a midget, so his season started a month ago. Definitely not ready for the Bruins though...

    My wife posted a picture of him from his game last week, someone commented he was the biggest midget they'd ever seen..

    I can't wait. New season, time to turn the page. The past is the past and it's time to start over. That's the beauty of sports to me

    Fresh sheet of ice ! Drop the puck !

    It was disappointing that the B's did not win the cup last June but they did far better than I thought they would. I hope all are healed up soon .

    The fall is my favorite time of year. I'm definitely ready for summer to end.

    If you're not excited about an upcoming hockey season, you're not a hockey fan. Even a bad hockey season is better than any other sport.

    same here. the SC finals and how it was officiated may have killed it for me.
    And then there was that game 7.

    Anyone else's towns freaking out over EEE ?

    Emergency calls from the town to advise people to stay inside after dusk, etc. School sports are cancelling outdoor evening practices and games. It's crazy.

    I'm with all of you. Tough loss to end the season or not, I'm ready to dive into the next one.
