This is it! It's the last weekend before the 2015-16 season starts for the Bruins. You might want to make sure you have plenty of beverages.

Hey all. How's your weekend going? For those of you this applies to, don't forget there's a Stanley Cup of Chowder Fantasy Hockey H2H League Draft this afternoon. I spent all day practically on my computer captioning a high school quiz bowl type game, so you'll excuse me if this is a little short. {"People will talk slowly in this video," I said. "Material will be pretty cut and dry," I said. So. Much. Fact. Checking.) Anyways, like always feel free to yap here and post any other stories you come across that might be interesting.

See you all in the Draft Room soon!
