Another Day - November 13, 2014

When you wake up each morning, you do it with a purpose, to have fun, and accomplish something each day.

Last nights Bruins game was horrible. It shows how the injuries have finlly added up, and the Bruins lucky wins over crappy teams ran out. Toronto came to play last night and I was impressed by Phil Kessel and the game he played last night. His struggles vs Chara was well documented, but without Chara, he ran wild.

Rask might be tired, hopefully he gets rested tonight and comes back ready to battle Saturday afternoon vs Carolina, but we'll have to wait and see what lies ahead in tonights game. Does he start or does he rest.

Every game gets better and better, hopefully the Bruins find themselves and win tonight!!

Buffalo Sabres at St. Louis Blues - November 11, 2014

So last night, my Boston Bruins were off and I was flipping channels looking for something to watch. Usually I have a dislike for Western Conference teams because I don't know anyone because the Eastern Conference plays them so little each season.

NBC Sports had the Sabres at Blues game at 8pm, I decided to watch it and call it a night. It was a great game. Last season the only Blues players I knew were Sobatka (Former Bruin) and Steve Ott and Ryan Miller (From a Buffalo trade).

This game was fun, and had some decent scuffles, fights, and blood, everything hockey is known for. With fighting being pushed out of the game, the brawls were impressive, one caused by a late hit after the whistle to Ennis and another in the 3rd.

The Schwartz, Lehtera, Tarasenko line was very impressive. Lehtera had a hat trick, doubling his season's goal total.

Great game, I've gotten into the Western Conference teams now, its still hockey, just later at night.

I picked up Lehtera in my fantasy tem after watching this game, Tarasenko and Schwartz were already picked up earlier in the season by others in my league.

Hockey makes the world go round.

Tonight, its Boston Bruins at Toronto Maple Leafs. Always fun when these 2 teams get together, even better tomorrow night when the Montreal Canadiens play Boston!!

Hockey is life!!

Bruins Defensemen - November 11, 2014

When you look through the season, there have been many ups and downs with the Boston Bruins defensemen, In thr rough sport of hockey, injuries can make or break teams, but its how you deal with them, pick up, and move on that makes your team stronger.

When Miller went out with the shoulder injury, it was ok, we had Bartkowski. When Chara went out with his leg issue, everyon threw up there hands and thought the season was over. Due to what I feel (right now) was a bad trade sending Boychuk to the Islanders for 2 draft picks before the season opener, Boychuk has had a great seasn for the Islanders, but he got injured as well.

So today on the ice of Bruins practice, they had 8 D skating. Krug's hand issues seem to be resolved. Seidenberg and McQuaid are leading the team with Hamilton growing and evolving into a better player every game. Trotman and Morrow have filled in perfectly. Warsofsky did well too, but he injured his groin and will most likely be sent away once he is healthy.

When your team works as a team and everyone does there part, you reach the next level and find a way to win. Its going to be a tough stretch of games this week, Bruins play 4. They beat the New Jersey Devils last night, and tomorrow they go to Canad to play Toronto and Montreal in back to back nights before there first afternoon Saturday game at 1pm vs the Carolina Hurricanes.

Never forget the Seth Griffith goal last night, it reminds me of a better version of the Benoit Poilout threw the legs puck moving goal he had a few years ago!!

Win Win Win!!

Bruins Win 4-2 over the Senators November 1st, 2014

So last night, the day after Halloween, I sat on the couch and watched the Bruins play a game at home vs the Ottawa Senators.

Pre-game there was a fitting video tribute to former Boston Mayor Tom Menino who passed away from cancer earlier during the week.

The game had a damper feel to it,with Chara, Miller, and Krug all out due to injuries, Marchand playing with "something tweeked" it was tough when they said Krejci was a last minute scratch. The injuries are adding up, quickly and painfully.

When you look through history of the Bruins, there was the epic "fight night" game vs the Dallas Stars on November 1st, 2008 that will be solidified as one of the best games I ever watched. Hockey, fights, and a win . . . perfection at its finest!!

The game vs Ottawa went smoothly. I expected a loss from the banged up Bruins, but Fraser provided a much needed spark and boost the team needed. Marchand continued his current hot streak with a goal, and Fraser put 2 in the net.

3rd period defense is lackluster and its painful to watch, especially since we lost a 2 goal lead game earlier this season.

The Bruins luck out, only 2 games this week, one vs former Bruin Shawn Thornton and his Florida Panthers, and the other vs Andrew Ference and his Edmonton Oilers. Thornton will get a huge ovation Tueday night in his first game back vs Boston since leaving in the offseason.

The schedule gets tougher with 4 games the week after, so lets cross our fingers that Krejci is fine, Marchand gets stronger, the Bruins keep winning, and Krug comes back ASAP!!

Back for more

As the days go by, so to do the questions everyday.

Will there be a tomorrow?

Will I stay at my job?

Will I accept a promotion, demotion, or say fuck it and quit?

Everyday is the same, you wake up, go to work, have fun, go home, and enjoy the time off til the next day and repeat over and over.

Vacation again starting when I leave at 253pm Saturday.

The questions remain the same, the place of work remains the same,

But like I've said before, I'll re-say once again . . .

Tomorrow is another day!!

Another Day

Everyday starts and goes as planned.

Some people do what some people do,

Some people turn towards those who have all the answers.

Unfortunately, today, I didn't have the answers.

But atleast I went there and made an effort and showed the boss what I did.

Its out of my hands now. Good luck on getting it fixed.

The Best

The best is when you do all that you can do

You feel numb, spent, and full.

You've reached your goal and everything you wanted.

You do the right things and make the right moves.

You own the sky,

You own the world,

You are the master of your own domain and all within.

You can do anything.

You conquer all tasks and challenges set before you.

You can do no wrong.

Life is full of choices, the choice to stay or go is by far the worst choice of all, but the choice of choices.

Based on the way things are going, nothing lasts forever.

Change comes from within.

Do what is best. Make your move!!

5th Grade Camping Trip

Growing up, it was a right of passage, an end of an era, The annual 5th grade field trip from Elementary School. It was a 3 night 4 day adventure in Maine, at Old Orchard Beach. It was a time to spend together before graduation. 4 classes all from the same school. appox 90-100 students.

The time was fun. 3 buses, lots of songs and relaxing on the way. It was about a 3 hour ride.

We got room assignments before hand, I was with Tony, Ernest, Derek, John, and Chas.

It was fun, were all in the room waiting to go out, we all having fun, relaxing. Everyone was comfortable, enjoying the time, having fun, I just wanted it to end. The night comes, we all get ready for bed, everyone is sleeping in just shorts, not me, I was the shy one who would go to the bathroom and change.

The next morning, we get ready to go, I get changed quickly in the bathroom, shy, not wanting to be seen.

We do are activities and adventures, and its the last night there.

Were sitting at the beach, not allowed to swim, not allowed to go in the water, but we sit there as a class listening to the teacher's lectures.

Its getting late, past sunset and the sky begins to darken, the sky is nice, the stars as beautiful, as we head back.

Since 3rd grade, I had a crush on a girl named Kristen. I signed her cast during recess once when she broke her leg on the tire swing.

In 4th grade we did a praying mantis project together and got an A+

We became great friends throughout the time there, and on the walk back, she put her arm around me. She caught me off guard and I didn't know what to do or say, but looking back, I enjoyed it and wished something became of it. You look back on moments that could have changed your life for the better, and there is no doubt that the way I handled her hug could have been better.

Instead of smiling and embracing it, I brushed her off and ran ahead of the pack going back.

One of those moments in time you remember forever. A lot could have changed during the trip, had I slept shirtless like everyone else I'd be more open and enjoy my body more, and had I smiled and hugged Kristen back during the walk back, we'd still be friends to this day.

Instead . . . nothing. Nothing came of anything from that trip in June of 1993.

Sick

Sick of Fake People

Sick of Liars

Sick of Deniers

Sick of people who make plans and break them

Sick of being Single

Sick of being sick

Life is full of choices, however happiness seems far away at the moment, but I have my eye on someone.

She probably has no idea I am interested in her

Fear of rejection holds me back.

Vacation is a week, a long week,

However fear will be overcome once I return, pop the question and move on with or without, still friends forever!!
