You know how sometimes you get in the car after work and your rearview mirror is aimed too high so you lower it, but the problem really is that you’re not sitting up as straight as you did when you drove to work in the morning? Well this morning my mirror was just fine. It matched my evening commute slouch-height just fine. That was about the only good thing about this mornings commute. At 6am I heard on the radio that 93 N was closed at 495 (or somewhere north of where I get on, so no problem, right?). But there was an accident on 93 S, just south of 128 (which the radio had not announced). It took me a half hour to get from the Concord St exit to 128… what’s that 5 miles? Probably not even. I think I fell asleep 4 times, while listening to D&C make fun of Pettitte hugging Rivera.
Nothing to complain about really, especially knowing the amount of poor saps who left after 5:50am will probably be in there cars far longer. Anyway. As most of you know, The Commish showed up to the rink in a less than cheery mood last night. And for that, I was served a thorough ass whooping. A complete reversal of last weeks fortune. The teams were pretty much the same, but the results were opposite. And therefore, the streak of uneven teams continues!!! I don’t know why the games have been lopsided, but they sure as hell have been. Truth is, I really don’t care either. (true HB fashion). BUT, I’m blaming Bucci. I know, he doesn’t even come to the games anymore, but it’s his fault. (hopefully this gets him to show up, and stop acting like no-show Littlewood from last year). The HBHL obviously needs its MVP on the ice, and it’s unbalanced without him. In fact, if he doesn’t make it to the ice soon, I’m liable to embrace him on the ice when he finally does arrive, Pettitte/Rivera style. (see you next Thurs Booch, wink wink).
Good showing at the clubhouse. Was strange getting to bed by 12:30am, but what a difference this morning. Goes to show that the extra half hour (12:30-1:00am) really doesn’t help things much. Props to Gallacher for buying wings for the boys. Even if I did eat half the order myself.
Oh, and apologies to all the Badgers in Gray that I assaulted on the ice last night. Being a pissy Commish is no way to go thru life.
Enjoy the weekend boys.
Fred the Baker is taking us into the weekend.
