The Wings Have Turned The Minutes To Hours

And I have no idea where the love of god has gone.  No, that's not pessimism talking. That's not me saying that adorable cherub, that drooling, babbling bundle of baby fat and joy, our precious 8lb baby Jesus has forsaken us and punished us for our many, many sins.  Baby Jesus has not decreed the end of our (shortened) season.

I'm talking about Stress.  I'm talking about disgusting, horrific Stress.  It's going to overtime tonite.  Because it must.

Double overtime, because if this season is going to end tonite it's going to end in the most painful way possible.

I'll say it again, how awesome would it be if that little tazmanian bastard skated out for the opening faceoff?  Do you know what Darren Helm would add to this equation? I don't. Because I can't remember the last time he played.

The musty old hall will be rocking.  Hopefully, if providence allows, we'll hear the echoes of  "You..Got...Kronwalled". My god that is a beautiful invention.

Something else, and I have to tell you this because I've sucked as a blogger for the entire year.  I've left the carrier Navy and moved on to the shooters, the small boys, the little ships who blast away.  Two weeks ago I took over as Command Master Chief of a Destroyer here in San Diego and the pace is...unbelievable.  That's why I've been largely absent except for the live blogs.  I don't see the work slowing down but I will maintain the blog the best I can. 

It's a Live Blog bitches.  One shift, one beer at a time.

Aw shucks, I blocked him.

If you think he is bad here, he is unbearable at HFBoards (when I posted years and years ago) as the moderators would censor any attacks on his barely articulate manifesto posts.  He and TheLinkGoesHere are cut from the same douchebag.

WOW… a claw foot bathtub.

Posted by calquake on 05/10/13 at 08:56 PM ET

I know right?  The house I bought when we first got up here had a clawfoot tub in it..I think the thing weighed a crap ton.  Which we all know is 4.2% less than a shit ton.

One of my shameful pleasures is watching that show.  Although Ashley Broad’s ass is about the size of zipcode compared to the one I posted.

I ditched a group of 30 shop owners in a restaurant, and caught a cab back to the hotel for this. Actually have a TV feed, plenty of IPA, and room service food.

Life is good. Unless it’s not, and we will know in 4 or 5 hours.

LGRW!

But a lot less than a metric *#$%@& load.  Something to do with the conversion.

Gotta love the Bullshido martial arts.  I went through a few myself (karate, taekwondo, aikido) before I settled on the real thing (BJJ and Muay Thai).
