Today’s musical selection is kind of mellow. Not sure why I thought of it recently. It conjures up a very specific memory of driving back to MA after a trip to VT. Some local station was playing it and it just struck a chord with me that day. Yeah, I know, ghey.
The northern town is in England but hey, I lived in a northern town, so WTF.
Anyone watching hockey? The Bruins have been average the past few years so there’s been little motivation to watch the games. When they’re winning it’s more fun. We never really learned to skate as kids because my dad was from Ireland where no one skates. He got a deal on skates once but we painfully discovered they were figure skates which have teeth on the toe. He filed them down in the basement and the next time we went we still sucked.
The old man thought we’d like to skate based on hockey’s popularity at the time. We had more fun playing street hockey with our friends from the neighborhood. It was quick to set up and aside from the occasional car we could set up right in the street.
I do miss the fights
Lucic is a hockey goon with actual hockey talent. I’ve now devoted more time to hockey making this post than I have all year. One last hockey story I just stumbled across:
‘U.S. Women’s Hockey Boycotting Championships Over Equal Pay (Which They Don’t Deserve)”
If there’s nothing else on I’ll watch women’s golf, volleyball, UConn women’s basketball during Final Four competition and Olympic gymnastics (that rhythmic gymnastics is mesmerizing). I’ve never seen a WNBA OR NWHL game. (If I lived in a city with a NWHL franchise I’d actually go to a game or two because I’m sure they’d be cheap tickets and maybe there would be a brawl).
