    I’ve fallen in love with a tinder chick who went to Europe and then hooked up with a hot mom going thru a bad divorce.

    Tmrw I’ll stay at a holiday inn so something good happens in my life.

    I've had mixed emotions. The Bruins haven't played this late into May since 2013, so part of me is accustomed to them not playing.

    But usually there's at least a couple of weeks of lamenting what could have been, and sadness that the season is over.

    With hockey 'out of sight, out of mind,' it quickly dawns on me that there is some pressing unfinished business.

    I remember all the pent up emotions from 20011 (exacerbated by the arrogant Canucks and their fans), so the respite has been nice.

    10 Things To Do During Bruins' 10-Day Break Before Stanley Cup Final

    If it already feels as if it’s been a month since the Bruins last played, then you better somehow wrap your head around the fact that there’s still a week left before the team actually plays a real hockey game.

    Mercy.

    The 10-day layoff for the Bruins is not ideal for anyone. It’s not great for the players, who definitely don’t mind some rest at this time of year but also don’t want to go into hibernation. (Bear pun; get it?) It’s not great for the fans, who have spent every other day for a full month enjoying the best that playoff hockey has to offer. It’s not great for the league or its broadcast partners, which can’t be too excited to have a marquee team standing idle for so long.

    Doesn’t seem like it’s too great for anyone.

    Alas, as the sports folks say, it is what it is. Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final won’t begin until May 27, and there’s nothing you can do to change that.

    What you can do is try to stay busy in order to keep yourself entertained.

    I went to Six Flags Great Adventure and rode some world class roller coasters, theb yesterday, my boss' boss, who is a huge Maple Leafs fan, offered me a promotion, so that's rad.

    Also starting to keep an eye on plane tickets to St. Louis. My dad grew up there and he's really excited about the Blues chances to make the Cup. He floated the idea of meeting in StL for game 4 if the Blues can close out their series. Would be awesome.

    Yeah, my life is just soooooooooooooooooooo exciting :eyeroll:

    That I do. I enjoy having my workout done before the feet of most mortals hits the floor.

    ...but I also really love sleeping.

    Last month for about two weeks there was a little bird who landed on my office windowsill and kept pecking on/flying into the window. A coworker identified it as a redpoll and said it saw its reflection in the window and was protecting its nest from the "other bird." :laugh: He finally gave up, haven't seen him in a while.

    I’m pretty sure those direct hits with that spicy concoction did the job. They haven’t been back since :DD

    I can give you the recipe if Daisy wants them gone

    Last night (Tuesday), the Blues dispatched the Sharks in 6 games. The Stanley Cup Final won't begin until next Monday! That accords the banged up Blues five days rest. That's more than necessary. In the old days, a team was allowed just two days healing time.

    IMO, this Cup Final should begin Saturday evening (for Hockey Night in Canada).

    If the B's beat the Blues, Beantown will have three major sports winners (Red Sox, Patriots and Bruins) during the past 12 months. When did that last happen?
