Hey Ho...Where Did I Go?

It's been awhile.  I know, I know.  I make promises to everyone that I do keep but to myself I don't always keep them. I'm sorry to the three of you out their in the universe who have been looking for something to read or maybe wondered if I had been abducted by aliens.

Speaking of aliens.  They have invaded our mediocre state again.  Oh wait, I'm hearing now they are not aliens but tourist.  I should have known. Aliens would be much more polite. And yes Mister Tourist I did make it rain you whole vacation on purpose so please visit another state next year, buhbye! But I have to love them because they spend money so Governor BlowHard can have more to give to his big business friends. Meh, whatever (insert eye roll)

I have nothing new and interesting to share with you. I still don't have a goat or a unicorn. I was attacked by an elderly shark while on vacation in Cocoa Beach. I swam with Man O'War's in Sebastian and I scared off all the manatee in Port St Lucie. I came home more injured than when I left so I've spent the last three months in OT and PT and unable to be on the computer typing very long. Yes I know I could use a voice program but I swear too much and Samsung kept asking me if I was speaking in Portuguese. Apps have no sense of humor.  Getting old sucks kids. It's not for the weak.  Oh and I still don't have a hot tub. I admit I spend a bit too much time on Craigslist and I still don't have a hot tub, or a goat. Pretty sure I'm repeating myself.

I am taking the summer off from being the super amazing volunteer to maybe put myself first for a bit. It won't happen but I'll have one less headache for awhile. Maybe in the fall I'll be bored enough to start doing work again but right now I'm just rocking my Pampered Chef business (my kitchen looks amazing thank you very much) so you know who to hit up when you need a dinglebob for your kitchen. I highly recommend our pantry products like the spices, sauces, and rubs Less expensive than the grocery store.  You can send me a message if you'd like to place an order or click here for my website and nope you don't need to have a party to have great stuff.

Enough with the shameless commerce commercial (but hey baby needs new shoes). It's time for me to go because this is the extent of the typing I can do at the moment. Here is a few rules for summer fun I want to pass on to you before you go, if you haven't already left.

1. Sock and Sandals - NO.
2. Sharks never sleep.
3. Pick up your trash.
4. Smile until your cheeks hurt and laugh until your belly hurts.
5. Leave the Fireworks to the professionals.

Cheers my friends. Until next time. Peace out.

Me and the Mister

Pirate Win, Pirate Loss and We're Back at the Cross

Let's start on a upbeat note - The Pirates gain a road win on Saturday night (2/21) as they beat the Springfield Falcons 3-2 at the Mass Mutual Center in Springfield on the Falcons Pink in the Rink night. This is the 2nd Pirate win this year between the two teams, who have only met twice (last on 1/2) with a 5-3 win. Darian Dzuirzynski netted 2 goals with Jordan Szwarz also lighting the lamp for Portland. Solid game by both teams but Pirates squeaks out the much needed win as they head back to Portland.
That's the upbeat.  Now let's take a peek at yesterdays loss to the IceCaps (25-23-6).  The Caps jumped right out to an early lead - 39 seconds early with a goal by JC Lipon. Read More Here

Portland Pirates Swing Through the Keystone State For Hugs and (Hershey) Kisses

First off, we need to catch up as a few moves happened for the Pirates over the last couple of days.
Goaltender Mike McKenna has been called up to Arizona and in turn Coyotes have assigned goaltender Louis Dominque to the Portland Pirates. McKenna has been very strong in net for the Pirates while, Dominque had less time in the net but still a decent record with the Pirates earlier in the season (and with one win with the Coyotes).
Coyotes have also recalled defenseman Brandon Gormley and forward Jordan Martinook awith a reassignment for defenseman Chris Summers to Portland. 
OK so we're all caught up.  How about this weekends series? Read More Here

Pirates Uneven Weekend Against the Caps

Here's a riddle - How can you go from all but one active member of the Pirates to record a point on Friday night to not even being asked to dance on Saturday night?  Only in the AHL Atlantic Division or when your Uncle Moe is the only date available. 
Friday's performance by the Portland Pirates saw all but the bus driver scoring in an 8-1 booty kicker against the St John's Ice Caps.  Henrik Samuelsson lead the Pirates scoring machine off in the first period with an early goal, assisted by Jordan Martinook and Dylan Reese. Greg Carey put up the second goal, assisted by Eric Selleck and Justin Hache and Portland was on it's way. The Pirates continued to light the lamp in the first period with a goal from Francis Wathier, assisted by Selleck and Tyler Gaudet. Read more here

Coyotes Recall Bolduc From Portland Pirates: 2 Game Series in St John's - Could See Other Players Step Up Their Game

I'm now writing for AHL Writers online.   You can follow me on their site AHL Writers (as Kel_Kazoo) or find my articles here as they are posted. 

Arizona Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney announced yesterday that the Coyotes recalled forward Alex Bolduc from the Portland Pirates, the team American Hockey League affiliate (AHL).
The 29-year-old Bolduc is 13-17-30 with 69 penalty minutes in 37 games with the Pirates this season. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound native of Montreal led Portland in goals, assists and points at the time of his recall. According to a press release from the Coyotes he has totaled 2-3-5 and 42 PIM in 62 career NHL games...continue reading here
