Yes, it's that time again

THT has alerted me to the fact you all are approaching 5,000 posts, which means it's time for a new thread. It would be my pleasure to create said new thread. Before I leave, however, I'd like to provide you a picture of the always-lovely Mariska Hargitay.
Have a nice day.

Preds lower the BOOOOOOM tonight, crushing the Ovechkis and achieving their first page flip in franchise history.


2601 - NHL awards a franchise to D.C., their first since the Capitals folded following a devasting loss to the PREDS nearly 600 years ago.

9:50 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

busy busy busy week. Double shift Monday; early all day trip to Salem on Tuesday; late night trip to Salem after work yesterday, got home at midnight; double shift Friday on deck. I have no idea what's happening elsewhere in the world. What's your excuse? ;-)

2602 - Penguins streak of stinky hockey has reached 583 seasons.

9:21 AM  
Blogger michael said...

Man, I've been busy. Work and kids bball, work and kids bball, work and kids bball. that's about all there is this month.

And of course there's also my PREDS!

2603 - The National Stinky Hockey League files for bankruptcy. It was a good run, though.

10:14 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Stinky runs sounds bad, not good. I'm sure there's a thread for that elsewhere.

"Auburn finalized its 2021 nonconference schedule, adding a season-opening matchup with Akron". That sounds like a great way for Gus to start a national championship season. I approve.

2604 - Stinky runs everywhere forces all ski resorts into bankruptcy.

4:48 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Been mostly on internet blackout what with the Aussie Open going on. Generally watch the coverage until about midnight and then the rest when I get home from work, by which time the next day's coverage is already beginning.

It's a grind, but worth it.

2605 - Warmest Australian Open on record. A real scorcher.

7:57 AM  
Blogger michael said...

My PREDS didn't send anyone to the Australian Open this year, so I haven't been paying much attention.

2606 - PREDS win the Australian open. The weather is temperate.

11:45 AM  
Blogger THT said...

PREDS @ Knights on NBCSN tonight. Go Team!

Penguins haven't played since Sat. I think the franchise may have folded after their most recent miserable road trip.


2607 - Penguins win the British Open. That makes Gilmore Happy.

7:22 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Subban fed his pinky to a Vegas player last night and then seemed surprised at the outcome. That PREDS backup goalie was fantastic.

AU basketball is doomed to mediocrity this season. The curse of 1975-76 will see to that.


2608 - WHL folds after one summer. Seems the world just wasn't quite ready for water hockey with a beach ball and jet skis.

2:09 PM  
Blogger michael said...

My favorite thing about my PREDS is how we prepare our backup goalies.

THT... are you ever going to post again on that other board?

2609 - you'll believe a man can fly.

I now see you are deleting as you go to maintain 88 posts. While the internet historian in me winces at this practice, I applaud your devotion.

2610 - Wince! All of you! Wince!!!!

6:13 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Haven't deleted a thing, though that is an excellent idea to make it legit!

I fly all the time in my dreams. Barely missed a power line the other night.

2611 - THT finally realizes that Crosby won the 2019 NHL All-Star MVP award.

10:46 AM  
Blogger michael said...

ohhhh i see. you tricked me with the "Posts 88" thing. Clever.

My daughter is doing a paper on lucid dreams. We've talked about it so much that I had a lucid dream the other day. Wasn't very cool though. I woke up within the dream and in continued to be a normal dream. The lucidity was lost.

2612 - Silent lucidity

2:06 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Go to sleep. Everything is all right. These dreams come on when I close my eyes. Help me to forget today's pain. The dream police, they're coming to arrest me. Have you any dreams you'd like to sell?


2613 - Parole is here! Unfortunately, it's meeting night at the Buy More; I'd rather stay in my cell.

3:19 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Snow is coming! Maybe. We'll see.

Don't worry, my wife picked up some milk at the store today, and we were already good on bread.

2614 - The Bread and Milk Wars begin.

5:58 PM  
Blogger michael said...

The snow did not come!

2614 - Battle of Midway turns the tide in the Bread and Milk Wars

1:12 PM  
Blogger THT said...

Plenty of rain here, as predicted :( Watching Jack Reacher for the umpteenth time. Nothing like a good Pittsburgh movie.


2616 - 2616 bears the brunt of undeserved criticism over the slight to 2015.

7:53 PM  
Blogger THT said...

I obviously shouldn't post while watching Jack Reacher kick butt.

2342324829834 - Planet of the Apes is no longer fiction

8:19 PM

Did Jack Reacher end up winning?

2617 - The Bread and Milk Wars come to and end, but the Milk and Bread Wars begin.

12:45 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Had less than 3 inches on the ground where I was, MJT.

Now that I'm a CIV employee instead of CTR, it was nice to get the day off without using any personal leave.

2619 - Cereal sides with Milk in the Milk and Bread Wars.

1:02 PM  
Blogger michael said...

You're a CIV now, huh? did you get that month long backpaid leave, or were you essential?

2620 - Between the entrance of Cereal and the introduction of toasters into battle, things aren't looking good for Bread

1:33 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

I work for the Army and our budget had already been fully funded, so no shutdown for me.

2621 - Chords to the toasters are cut, giving bread a lifeline.

10:08 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Chords to the toasters... that rings a tune.

2622 - Cereal, made from grains, captured and tried for treason. At the trial, milk spills under intense cross examination. Creal bran ded a traitor and executed.

12:52 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Puppet Hour! Those were the good ol' days.


2623 - Puppet Hour is declared a national holiday

4:48 PM

Puppet hour was cracking back in the day. I forget how chaotic this place could be back then.

I think I have the flu. Everybody has the flu.

2624 - Flu

10:37 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Are you feeling better?

Bring out your dead!

2625 - the flu flew by; it's already 2625

7:27 AM  
Blogger michael said...

I've just had a headache for about a day now. Feels more like a cold than the fly. No temperature.

The wife and three of the kids have the flu, so maybe it is the flu and I'm just super tough?

2626 - Auburn signs Flu McFluboo on signing day.

1:43 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I don't want the flu. Please wipe your keyboard with alcohol or H2O2 before you post. As old as I am, the flu could kill me, especially since I don't ever get flu shot.

2627 - longing for 2829 on the next page

2:34 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I was in W-S all day. I'm guessing we signed the best class in the country and we flipped a bunch of 5* recruits from our rivals. I'm right, aren't I?

2628 - AU signs the first class of all 5* recruits.

8:55 PM  
Blogger michael said...

We really didn't want any new 5* recruits yesterday. It's much better to get 3* and coach 'em up.

2629 - Auburn loses every game because the 5* recruits all have bad attitudes

1:50 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

that 2629 prediction made me laugh. I can't find a single televised sporting event worthy of a mid-winter campfire. Good thing the weather is warm or we'd just freeze tonight.

2630 - AU coaches up Feng's great grandson from 1* to All-American. Not only does the football team win all games, but they get great marks for their dissertations.

4:39 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Is it Friday yet?

2631 - The national champion Auburn football team is invited to the Turquoise House, where President Donald Trump VIII serves hot dogs at the celebration dinner. Feng's great grandson mysteriously falls into a coma.

1:58 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Where have you been?! It was Friday like a week ago.

If you leave by midnight, you should be able to get to W-S in time to help us paint tomorrow. I'll have a Chick Fil A bacon & egg biscuit waiting for you, and some Krispy-Kreme doughnuts.

2632 - DTVIII outlandish claim the previous year that Feng's coma resulted from Russians tampering with the hot dogs is proven correct.

6:21 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

michael, since you didn't show, I ate all your food. I was so full, I wasn't able to paint. MrsTHT blames you, or she would if she knew all the details.

2633 - PeterFrankenschmidt returns to Hv1.0, just two centuries before Monica's cataclysmic return.

10:54 AM  
Blogger michael said...

I left five minutes after midnight. When I was pulling into W-S, I realized I was late. Embarrassed, I drove back to Hville.

Feel free to tell MrsTHT it's all my fault. I feel just terrible about the whole thing. Just terrible.

2634 - paint goes extinct

1:21 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I can't wait til 2634!

Last night weatherman predicted high of 68 today. So far, we've made it all the way up to 46 with gray mist all day. Pure unadulterated rain tonight. Forget global warming, what we really need to focus our attention on is global wetting.

2635 - Battle of Midway really heats up with two new combatants, each eager to fill the paint void. Shellac and Varnish, neither of which has any scruples, bring unprecedented stain to the art of warfare.

3:29 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I've just returned from the blogger awards show where I accepted a bloggie for best 3:29 PM post on jaygtate.blogspot.com.

michael, I threw your bloggie for best 1:21 PM post into the Ohio River. If you go to Memphis and put a big seine in the river, you may be able to retrieve it.

5:01 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

you didn't take your asprin, did you?

This guy is spot on in assessing the Penguins league-leading inconsistency: I think the Penguins are good enough to win the Stanley Cup, but I’m not sure they’re good enough to make the playoffs. At this point, I won’t be surprised if either happens.

The PREDS are solidly in the playoff picture, but they are going to have to up their game if they want to get deep into the playoffs. I know, I know... the Stanley Cup is in the bag!

2639 - 52

11:58 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Well, if push comes to shove, I'll push & shove this thing to 5,000 posts all by myself. I'm trying to decide whether I should post once/minute, once/hour, once/day.... or once/decade.

While cogitating that, I just missed my next once/minute post. I may have to rethink this.

2640 - Thaddeus Threetone's song, 9035768, is a complete flop.

3:16 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Sleep deprivation is not as much fun anymore.

So... AU's new 2nd/3rd Saturday in November opponent at home in even years will have to be one of these:
LSU, Arkansas, aTm, Non-Georgia East

Seeing as how every one of those options already has a routine opponent for that weekend, whichever it turns out to be is going to cause everyone's schedules to get shuffled. Can't wait to see how this game of 52 card pickup plays out.

2641 - SEC scheduling glitch now has AU playing 8 conference road games in even years and 8 conference home games in odd years, which makes every year seem odd.

7:02 AM  
Blogger michael said...

My voice has almost come back. I'm still snotty but no longer on the edge of death.

2642 - Battle of Midway

10:33 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

you may think it's mucus, but it snot

Death can't keep you in the ground!

2643 - Due to the overwhelming advantages of its opponent, Midway resorts to guerrilla warfare in its long-running battle against O'Hare.

3:09 PM  
Blogger THT said...

Pens won a game but lost two more players to injuries. That's four in the past two games. Tough loss for the PREDS tonight. The Blues are Red hot.

2644 - British engineers finally rebuild the bridge over the River Kwai.

9:35 PM  
Blogger michael said...

Now's not the time to peak, though, THT. My PREDS know that.

2645 - The River Kwai freezes due to global cooling. People just walk right over the river now.

3:25 PM  
Blogger THT said...

Rain much of the day. After two days of sunshine I was beginning to worry that we'd never see rain again.

2646 - Ice floe from the Kwai drifts into shipping channels leading to a maritime tragedy when it causes the sinking of the Thaitanic.

8:31 PM  
Blogger michael said...

lol at the Thaitanic.

had a lot of 40 degree rain this weekend. great weather.

2647 - no more maritime tragedies

9:53 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Great win for the PREDS last night; they really needed a good win more than they needed the two points, but the latter certainly won't hurt.

2648 - PREDS continue winning

4:07 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

oh joy, 3 days of rain forecast for the weekend. Great weather for procrastinating about moving furniture from here to there.

2649 - Historians laugh at the early 21st century proponents of global warming which never materialized. However, sea levels have still risen 20 feet thanks to 500+ years of 40 degree rainy days.

2:20 PM  
Blogger michael said...

it's been a cold one this week. my two oldest girls have a track meet this afternoon that i'm not real excited about. Too dang cold for track meets.

2650 - turns out global warming was real, and now it's too hot for track meets. The river kwai dries up, which is good news for some.

10:03 AM

11:58 AM

Bought a dryer for the second time this week. The one I bought a couple of days ago had an issue with the door.

Hopefully I have time to pick it up tonight. The old dryer is broken, and the laundry pile continues to build.

2653 - global warming is so hot that dryers aren't even needed anymore.

3:18 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Blogger E-Bro said...

What's wrong with a clothes line? (Checks forecast for Huntsville) Oh, right.

2655 - Global warming so hot that nothing needed anymore because humanity can't survive in present conditions and evacuates to Kepler-186f after wormhole is discovered beyond Jupiter.

Good news(?) is I get to go to W-S tomorrow on completely inadequate sleep.

I would absolutely love for my beloved AU Tigers to win 2 more games this weekend. Meanwhile, I'll be watching hockey. GO PENS! They host your PREDS on Friday night at 7pm ET

I really messed up some of my plants yesterday. I moved them to the green house, but the green house must have gotten way too hot. Kilt a bunch of my peppers. Tomatoes pretty much all survived. But I'm bummed about me peppers. Guess i'll buy some bonnie plants like some kind of amateur.

i bought a bell pepper and a poblano pepper plant so that i won't have to wait forever on those peppers. Did some more seedlings that hopefully I don't ruin, but they won't be yielding fruit until July or so probably. all the jalapenos were on another shelf of the greenhouse down lower where it wasn't so hot, so they weren't affected.

Gonna plant a bunch of things in the garden when I get a chance. Got some tomatoes and squash and zuchini ready to go

Oh, and this weekend we were at a basktball game, and my 7yo daughter was looking at the score and commented "I hate odd numbers," and I thought of you THT.

Still trying to figure out who to root for in the East. I don't like the CBJ because they play dirty against the Penguins, but it's hard not to root for them right now. I suppose the Maple Leafs are the team for which I have the least animosity (I'm operating on a safe assumption that Carolina will be joining the Penguins on the links next weekend).

In the west... GO GOLDEN KNIGHTS!!! GO PREDS!!!

Move went well despite y'all's lack of participation. One minor glitch... MrsTHT wasn't there to supervise, so I forgot a small sofa that had not been moved to the "staging area", i.e. the foyer. So instead of spending the night in W-S and attending Easter Sunrise service in God's Acre in Old Salem, we drove the truck back to CH Sat night and returned to W-S the next day with the sofa and some other odds & ends.

2697 - Avs leverage their recent success to maintain NHL supremacy, causing a paradigm shift in the Battle of Midway. (I always thought "paradigm" was an overused/misused word; another is "leverage".)

I could have sworn in the one bad angle replay they showed last night that some Star was standing just offside when the guy with the puck blew by him. I was awfully tired so I didn't bother rewinding it to get a better look. I kept expecting a challenge or Toronto review and the next thing you know they are all shaking hands. It was probably on side, but I'd sure like to know 100%.

Looks like E-Bro is only one of us whose team survived Round 1.

If I can ever retire, we'll move permanently to W-S. Right now it's just a money pit.
When I move, I let MrsTHT do all the work.

2700 - Y2.7K ruins all the computers

1:23 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

speaking of getting hosed. Refs give SJ a 5 minute major for what was at most a 2 minute interference. Vegas just flat fell apart after that call.


2701 - Refs still cheating our teams

11:49 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

wowza that was a great win by the Hurricanes last night. I suspect their tanks may be empty tomorrow night. The are the only one of the 4 teams I pull for that survived the 1st round.

2702 - Despite $1.5 billion in govt grants over the past 300 years, researchers fail to reach a consensus on whether or not there is a link between obesity and a diet of 100% Pringles.

My HURRICANES are now up 2-0! I am on cloud 9!

2703 - clouds are outlawed

12:58 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

I fear all the injuries will be too big a blow for the HURRICANES to overcome, even if they survive this series.


2704 - President vetoes anti-cloud legislation, and with good reason. A legislative clerk inadvertently typed it as clouds. What Congress intended to outlaw was clowns.

4:31 PM

Both my Avs and Nuggets are looking good, baby.

2705 - Lando Calrissian has the anti-cloud clerk assassinated.

3:09 PM

Well, my Avs WERE looking good.

long day here, sports fans. Was on the road to Charlotte to pick up a friend at CLT and I didn't get to watch Hurricanes tonight. I hope they can keep winning.

2707 - Battle of Midway spills onto the ice, forcing the postponement of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

4:13 PM

had to be sociable this evening; it was painful. Upon leaving, I saw a lovely BMW with a NC AU license plate (AU 0938, I think). If I'd seen that before I left, I'd have blurted out a loud WAR EAGLE! to find out who it was. I hope they'll be at the meeting tomorrow.


2711 - NBA enforces traveling; turnovers up and scoring down 30,000%.

Spring vacation is history. Back to work work work until Fall's vacation season. I have a friend in Houston who has worked half days all his professional life, 7a-7p. He is a solo CPA/Atty. For the first 30 some odd years, he would take one full week of vacation every three years so they'd have enough time for a trip to Europe or wherever. The intervening two years he would take two 1-day vacations for long weekends. At age 70, he's getting soft, now taking two 2 day vacations/year. He plans to work until he is 99.

2712 - Retirement outlawed.

9:32 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

E-Bro, your Avs just guaranteed an extra day (or two) off for the Bruins. Boo!
Go 'CANES!

2713 - Molasses outlawed.

12:07 PM  
Blogger E-Bro said...

Sorry, not sorry.

2714 - Rum distilleries successfully lobby for overturn of molasses outlawing.

10:03 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

Do you know the way to (beat) San Jose? I suppose the Avs will know in a short while.

Ben Bishop was simply marvelous in a losing effort last night.


2715 - buried deep in the fine print of the molasses outlawing overturning legislature is a clause limiting each distillery to one molass per month. They all convert to bottling Cheerwine and business soars.

5:12 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

well, rats. I got home in time for the last 5 minutes to see Martin Jones peppered with a plethora of pucks from the Avs to no avail.

Watched the post-game show and saw the offsides call. NHL (or NBC pulling strings) seems determined to get San Jose through each playoff round.

Go 'CANES!

2716 - Millennial anniversary of that most AUsome of years, 1716.

11:50 AM

My CANES need to plug up the holes in our defense. Giving up 5 goals ain't gonna cut it!

2725 - chaos

12:28 PM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

If your BRUINS and the Sharks end up in the Final, I'm not sure I'll be watching. Marchand is a jerk and the Sharks don't belong in Round 2, Round 3, or the Final.


2726 - nostalgic celebrations in memory of 2625 and 2524.

2:25 PM  
Blogger michael said...

You know, Marchand is one of those guys you hate when he's on the other team, but you love when he's on your team. And we love him!

2727 - Everyone thinks it's cool that the year is 2727.

The next time I see Marchand lick an opponent's face, I'll have PF give him a kick in the teeth.

2728-29!

I can't believe I blew the opportunity to end this with a BEASLEY!!! at 2728. I guess I'll have to make another 80+ posts til we get to 2816.

2733 - HABOTN Historians, scrolling through HABOTN Archives while sitting around a Thursday night Campfiyah, wonder who THT was. Michael XVIII, King of Ur, pipes up, "Oh, he's the guy that utterly choked when it came time for a BEASLEY!!! post."

Almost stepped on a Giant Leopard Moth on the sidewalk the other evening. Cool looking critter.

2740 - Battle of Leopard & Luna moths starts WW CVIII. Some historians consider it simply a continuation of the Battle of Midway.

Am I hearing a high school band? Why on earth would I be hearing that? Definitely hearing trumpets and maybe some other horns from somewhere. And a drum.

2741 - Feng makes a fortune selling his new "Skinny Dog" hotdogs. Guaranteed not to completely occlude the trachea if aspirated. The idea came to Feng in a vision when he was in the ICU.

I hope this isn't poison ivy on my hand. It's too dark for me to see it well enough to say. I'm gonna go Benadryl cream it.

The Bruins bullied the Blues in Game 3. If Blues can't reverse that tonight, I won't need or want to watch game 5.

2746 - due to a locksmith's error, the people outside the jail are the ones who are actually imprisoned.

Who you rooting for in the NBA finals, THT?

2747 - Magic beans!

10:40 AM

NBA? I don't even know what that is anymore. And I have no clue who is in their Finals. If it's the Lakers with Wilt and Jerry, I'm pulling for the Lakers. If it's the Sixers with Bobby Jones, the Doctor, and Moses or Chocolate Thunder, I'm pulling for the Sixers. Of course, I'd be ok with Wes Unseld and the Bullets if neither of the above are available.

Let me know if they ever decide to enforce traveling, palming/carrying or whatever they (don't) call it, etc.

2750 - centuries ago, michael's mom took Labor Day too seriously, giving birth during the Mackinac Bridge Walk. Now, many centuries later, the UP and LP go to war over who can rightly claim michael as their most famous son.

Bruins are undefeated when facing elimination. Bruins are undefeated when Marchand scores. Are you going to flip flop back to the Bruins now?

9:41 PM

I'm still in amazement that the Blues actually read this blog. I mean, how else would they fall prey to your jinxing them? They are going to get blown out so badly tomorrow that I won't even bother to watch.

2756 - Blues still haven't won a Cup.

10:28 AM  
Blogger Tar Heel Tiger said...

HA! Those Blues are such suckers. They fell for the oldest trick in the book, the patented THT RPT (reverse psychology strategem). I watched every minute of the game. Happy for the Blues. Happier that neither the Bruins, Flyers, or Caps won the Cup.

2757 - Chara's jaw finally heals

9:11 AM

I think I might go to St Louis for the victory parade. This is a once in a lifetime event for us diehard Blues fans.

Hey michael, take the Cup to the top of the Arch and yell out, "This is for you Lewis! And you, too, Clark!" Then roll it down the south half of the arch.
