Kinda rough to end up with Denver, BU, BC and Michigan – Goldy knocked out by BU, Bucky knocked out by Quinnipiac and UND knocked out by Michigan. That’s gotta hurt the per-cap…

🫡 Monday Musings

Posted May 1, 2023

  • Somebody forgot to renew their Nitter cert yesterday
  • My Mastodon feed is much better after pruning a few people
  • The Wild are in good company – didn’t expect Boston and Colorado
  • This May Day wind is outrageous – the house is literally rattling
  • Hope Saint Paul decides to reopen Shepard Road soon

🫡 Late night observations

Posted April 26, 2023

A few thoughts from last night:

  • After decades of fandom, I need to be less emotionally attached to Minnesota sports teams. Still love ’em, but wow.
  • Despite my support for Mastodon, I’m not confident in the backend tech stack and organization. This commentary from Justin Garrison, in particular, is very thought-provoking.
  • “When you’re chewing on life’s gristle, don’t grumble, give a whistle”

🫡 Late nights observations during the first intermission

Posted February 15, 2023

1) Post.news has not evolved the way I thought it would 2) I don’t like any news app more than their mobile site and 3) late start, mid-week Wild games are…not optimal
