Saturday Night Thread

Hawks and Bruins tied at one in the middle of the third period in NHL action. The cable box tells me that IU is playing Louisvile in the CWS. Also, I Love You, Man is on Comedy Central. Hilarious movie if anyone hasn't seen it.

Anyone drinking or eating anything good? I have some alcoholic cola's I got for $5.99 a twelve pack and am snacking on some creation I make of crescent rolls, cream cheese, chicken and crushed pineapple.

Chicago has looked a lot more active overall in this game. I'm still surprised they have only one goal.

I thought it was comical that NBC spent 5 minutes covering Krug's turnover in the first game, only to have almost the same thing happen for a rush in this game.

Spent the night watching the Griffins lose game 5 and drinking whiskey and cokes. Still have a 3-2 series lead but losing two in a row at home that could have clinched makes me nervous to go back to Syracuse...

And I was sold. At a wedding reception in Columbus, Ohio bride and groom trolled by the good side of our family when the Victors played during the introduction of the groomsmen. All in good nature so it was fun to see.

Got home early so I'm watching the Bruins-Hawks game, listening to Yeezus (it was leaked early, and it's phenomenal), and enjoying some beer (Short's Huma Lupa Licious) from our kegerator.  A good, relaxing night.

Seriously, about to start it. The girlfriend just told me she's heard that it's totally different than his previous stuff and is a bit on the odd side, so I'm pretty excited to listen to this right now. Completely agree with your comment in the last music thread, Kanye is a douche but he's definitely a great musician (same tone as the general talking about Mel Gibson in Imaginationland).

Listented to it a bit last night!

I hate being the negative nancy all the time (amongst my friends) but I'm not sold on it being Great yet.  I think it's really good and there are some production qualities to a handful of songs that are awesome (great).  The first four songs + Blood on the Leaves* + Send it Up + Bound = Damn near greatness for the most part.  Some of the lyrics are a bit of a joke though and honestly shi**y.  I read where Rick Rubin said Ye had a few songs "written" all in ~2 hours; some of that shows if true.  I can see Hold My Liquor being a big jam for many people but I found it a bit lame/sophomoric (again, more the lyrics than anything).  Dude really got into being dirrrty for a few of these songs.

*Blood on the Leaves I've listened to about 7 times already...I dig it

The fiancé is off to NC for a week to see her sister so i cracked a few Dogfish Immort Ales and kicked back. I love her and this beer but this week will be awesome!

Phil Mickelson leads by a stroke seeking his first US Open after a record 5 runner ups. Quality names chasing including Luke Donald, Hunter Mahan, and Charl Shwartzel just one shit back. Promises to be a great final round.

It seems like Jagr has been frustratingly close to making some big plays all playoffs and just hasn't gotten a single bounce yet. I think he is still goalless for the playoffs despite playing very well. I just have the feeling he is due pretty soon. Guy is too good not to come through with this many chances.

room yesterday, and we have just broken up from our usual late dinner which also usually includes singing, but now with the piano.  very nice.   ever-impressed with oldest daughter who can play songs she has only heard a couple of times, no sheet music, etc.

Boston really pressing hard here. Should be a power play for Boston on the delay of game here too. 

EDIT: Nevermind, free stopage for Chicago. Should've been a penalty.

I know that the players are tired, but there is still some great hockey being played tonight. The first two games have both been fun to watch and you can't ask for more than this as a neutral fan.

looking at espn's box score, they always list giveaways and takeaways.  they don't match up i.e. boston didn't have 9 giveaways and chicago 9 takeaways, and this was not a stat that they ever kept when i played (yes, that was after the glaciers receded but before the invention of electricity). 


June 15th, 2013 at 11:43 PM ^

when I was playing nobody even kept track of hits, so I'm probably not your guy here. If I had a CenterIce bat signal I would put it up, but sadly I don't.

Also I wanted to tell you how sorry I was about the emails we exchanged a while back. I definitely thought I had replied to you with everything, but it doesn't look like it. I did do the stuff you had wanted, and Seth chimed in as well, but I guess the reply got lost in the shuffle. You'll have a reply by tomorrow night. Again, sorry for the non-response.


June 15th, 2013 at 11:53 PM ^

about that.   never heard from seth, who i assume is a mod.  can update article too, since the wolverines went on their end-of-season tear to gain respectability and i can ask one of the players about news re: going pro, what caused the team to finally get it in gear, etc.

the guy who does Dear Diary and Hokepoints on the front page (among other things, I've been drinking for a couple hours and can't think of them off the top of my head), and he copyedits all of the front page content. I had asked him about your potential diary since that's his job description and he did some copyediting and had a few notes.

Drinking Deschutes beer at the Highlands street fair here in Denver. It's an Oregon beer which is weird since CO is supposedly the Napa Valley of beer. Whatevs, I'm here for the points
