The first period was like the hottest club in New York. It had everything.
Reuben spring rolls. Corgis. Uniporn. And coniferous dicks.
The period started out normally enough with a dinner report.
And optimism. Always optimism. Gotta be optimistic for this year.
But predictably, we couldn’t stay normal for long.
Crazy-ass Nordic goalies and their pre-game rituals...
Of course gave way to this:
And then this:
With expected results:
Amazingly enough, we managed to push the envelope further.
Truer words have never been spoken, UNC Medievalist and phonymahoney!
Oh, yeah, and a Jimmy Hayes goal. Against Braden Holtby!
Stars of this period: jiJack for his corgi pics, and UNCMedievalist’s eyes for deceiving him with wonderful results.
SECOND PERIOD (we're calling it that again, because the Bruins played like that, again):
A quick (and successful!) buddy check was made, and again, Satan81 once again proves to be a reliable buddy. He should be in an instructional video.
Medievalist doesn’t need a buddy, because he has #papalenthusiasm, and that’s all you need in this cruel world.
Sis was adamant about being an independent
woman knight, but was easily swayed when offered a pal. This exchange later descended (ore ascended, really) into a discussion about Breaking Bad, and a dazzling display of appropriate gifs.
A certain, prominent, Chowder hashtag somehow did not come up in conversation, though it most certainly should have:
SatanSiblings were generally very adamant about things tonight, as was their adopted sister, the german hammer, which caused some good hockey-ish discussion.
We hoped and prayed, but the Second Period Suck struck again:
We may have been on to something here, and probably should have hopped in our Chowder-fueled DeLorean.
Alas, no serious shit was seen. Just more seriously shitty hockey.
Darth Vader was impregnated during the second period, with a coniferous object. You can visit the thread for that one.
Speaking or Darth Vader, the possibility of a Darth Quaider injury was thrown around:
WalkIntoMordor walked into Chowder, and the Chowder Sports Update nailed it.
The Bruins landed on the PP again, and something crazy happened, which convinced us that the end was near:
This "Old Testament, ‘real wrath of god’ type stuff" descended, far, FAR into politics and …rocks. Yes, for serious.
Luckily (maybe), we returned to the subject at hand: the apocalypse is undoubtedly coming, as Brad Marchand got powerplay time.
HHG kept his reputation intact:
And with that, thankfully, period 1B came to a close.
Period 1C: Who is this team and can we have the other one back?
Our Bruins entered the Period trailing by two goals. So, scoring 3 goals would be simple, right? Nope.
Anyway, we either got to the thread with our buddies or not.
Talk of defensive woes:
Seriously, why can't we have nice Defense?
A letter writing campaign was proposed:
including a special request:
More talk of Corgis:
Finally, we have a scapegoat. Turn your rage toward UNCMedievalist,
who may or may not be Adam McQuaid or Kevan Miller.
All this leads to the obvious question:
Sounds like a good idea to me.
I, for one, would love to see this Tuukka return.
Bruins lose 4-1. So much for the Bruins going 41-0 on the road.
STARS OF THE THREAD:
- Satan81, for his dedication to the Thread Buddy System
- the german hammer, because she really nestled right into place in her new family
- UNCMedievalist, because of coniferous reasons and papal enthusiasm
