Pro tip - don't watch the Jean Beliveau tributes (one by the Canadiens, and one by the guy who does the HNIC promos) at work.




I took a two hour nap and cried during parks and Rec. it was awesome and terrifying.

Sorry for the format of this one. I couldn't find it anywhere other than the official news outlet.



I gave away my tickets to this match. They had over 16,000 fans for it. It looks like the kid sat in the team section during the match. It was all coaches/backups/red shirts.

Not dusty as much as "goosebumpy." Great read.

Fantastic article about Rae Carruth's son - the one he tried to have killed - and how he's getting along, living with his grandmother. She two of them sound like incredible people. And Rae Carruth sounds like he's still a piece of shit.

Pretty telling and unsurprising that Colorado comes off better than the Panthers as well.

(Yeah, the lawyers will say that providing any assistance to the boy might be an admission of guilt on their part, but isn't there a statute of limitations on civil lawsuits. I'd have to imagine that would have passed many years ago.)

Agreed. It seems like the Panthers and/or the NFL could throw a few bucks that family's way. Sure, they don't have to, but come on. Wouldn't that do more for their PR than suspending a guy who smoked a joint in the offseason?

went to a viewing last night.
a good friend from the club, truly a gentleman, a man of quality. he was our captain for a while until age caught up to him. his missus an amazing character, smiling always. truly lovely couple.
Him and his missus tried for many years for a baby. Multiple miscarriages. lo and behold the last time it worked. beautiful baby boy born on nov 5th..joy.
on thursday night rushed to the ER. on friday, the mass email went out to all members, the baby had passed.
gutted. everyone of us.everyone of us feels it for them. life is short and often not fair. the sun shone on them for forty days and then no more.
one of the boys set up a fund (they don't have as much as some and can use it) - by last night it'd been more than doubled and keeps growing (this just from the club member list)

the viewing. brutal. open casket. no words. men i've known to show no fear or sadness in nearly 20 yrs.. broken. we've all stayed away from social media on this . no one can imagine it, even those that have suffered miscarriages (and far too many of those, wtf?) but all together as one to support. his parents flew in, his brother from the other side of the world. it was as it should've been,except it never should've been.

Man, that just fucking floored me.

We had to experience three miscarriages before AEM was born. What your friends went through is something I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. That's truly heartbreaking, and there almost isn't anything to say but to be there for them.
