    Confessions of a Confused Brady Follower

    When they showed Brady on the sideline throughout the season he would either be “half” wearing a mask or continually pulling it down to talk to someone. The late season games it seemed he never had one on the sideline. Him not wearing one when everyone else wore one was galling. He either is a...

    The Japanese government has privately concluded that the Olympics will be cancelled because of the coronavirus

    Makes sense. I’d assume they get to pick whatever they want and still get host privileges of having athletes is all events.

    The Japanese government has privately concluded that the Olympics will be cancelled because of the coronavirus

    My solution would be to make these a Global Games. The logistics or bringing thousands of athletes, coaches,,support staff etc to one location are daunting. The logistics of staging events at venues all over the world should be less so from a quarantine and safety standpoint. Bubbles are...

    Tuukka's Baackk 2021

    Same. I don't need that kind of shock. Perhaps a thread name change or close it.

    Bruins 2021 Season Thread

    AHL is certainly counting on revenue from streaming and with the arena and PBruins owned by the Larue Renfroe I'm sure they'll black out Livebarn. It's not a horrible deal for AHL TV. Preseason pricing of $24.99 for the all access pass. I'll probably subscribe for that...

    Chara signs with Capitals

    It is going to be so painful to see Chara playing against the Bruins. I really wanted to see him directly pass on the C to Bergy and hoped he was going to be back in a reduced role. I guess that was never in the cards. Chara became the player he was because he pushed himself harder than anyone...

    Now that the Patriots season is over, who are your AFC rooting interests?

    In the AFC I'm rooting for the Texans, Broncos and Chargers to win out and the Patriots to drop both. It's all about draft position now.

    Offseason Game Thread

    If I was buying a house today I’d have the inspector pull down every smoke and CO detector and check the manufacturing date. They only have a 10 year lifespan and should be replaced after that. I’d want them all replaced if they were out of date. I’d bet the vast majority of homeowners have...

    Alert for power outage

    I believe you are referring to a transfer switch, which is required by code for all standby generators. FYI, the Wiser comes in a solar version. It will monitor your energy generation from the panels so you know how much you are using and how much is being backfed into the grid.

    Alert for power outage

    Square D's Wiser is a home automation solution, that will partially do what you are looking for. The nice thing about the Wiser is that it goes right on your panel. It's a smart device that "learns" which devices are pulling electricity so you can monitor everything from just this device. It...

    Bruins Offseason Roster Thread

    The Providence Bruins have worn gold as their primary home jersey since 2013, although the B's look a little lighter. I always thought it was a great jersey. They also wear a gold helmet, which doesn't work nearly as well.

    Justin Turner and COVID

    In a world where Roger Goodell and Gary Bettman are your competition for worst commissioner, being a runaway winner is quite an achievement for Manfred. The best part of the "apology" was that he only went out for a picture with the trophy when he thought there would only be a few people on...

    October NHL news

    I think Bobby Orr is a genuinely nice guy. Unfortunately, he must possess a level of naivete and projection of his own feelings that blinds him to people with bad intentions. You would think his dealings with Alan Eagleson would have made him a little more cynical and tuned into con men, but...

    I am totally waffling back and forth on whether or not to play. I told my team captain last week I was in for the winter league that starts in 3 weeks. Now with VT reporting issues and NH shutting down games for a few weeks along with the spikes happening I'm starting to think it's a dumb...

    Beer Leagues, Gear, and other Non-Pro Related Items

    I've sat out so far, but the winter league is starting in a month. I know that if I don't get back on the ice for that I'm pretty much done. It's not likely at my age (52) I'll get back into the swing of it if I sit out a full year. I bought a bubble and will see how it works out using a...

    Thanks for this. Definitely getting my son some stuff from there for Christmas. He played for the Cranston Reds youth team as a squirt so there is a nice tie in additon to being local for us. Too bad they don't have jersey's.

    2020 NHL Draft

    That is Rhode Island's own Gunnarwolfe Fontaine. He has been viewed one of (if not the top) RI kids in his age group for at least 8 years. He wasn't even the top drafted kid from his hometown. Brett Berard went in the 5th round to the Rangers. Both grew up in East Greenwich.

    If you don't already have ducts for forced hot air heating, you should consider mini-splits for AC. Installing ducts is a pain and usually will eat up closet space in older houses.

    Count me in as liking yard work, especially this summer. I hate to sit around and without anywhere to go it keeps me busy. My lot was on the edge of an old farm and as a result one side was years of accumulated dirt and rock overgrown with brush. I've been working down the line the last few...
