Hockey, oh how I miss ice
On what might be the hottest day of 2013, the NHL released its 2013-14 regular season schedule.
After announcing the new realigned divisional names — Atlantic, Metropolitan, Central and Pacific — the league shortly thereafter unveiled this year’s slate of games. Gone is 2013’s truncated 48-game schedule and back in its place is the 82-game slate.
The B’s find themselves in the Atlantic division, as the Northeast Division is no more. Joining the Bruins will be Montreal, Toronto, Detroit, Buffalo, Ottawa, Tampa Bay and Florida.
The Bruins will open the season on Oct. 3 at home against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
See the entire schedule below.
Thu. Oct. 03 Tampa Bay 7 p.m.
Sat. Oct. 05 Detroit 7 p.m.
Thu. Oct. 10 Colorado 7 p.m.
Sat. Oct. 12 At Columbus 7 p.m.
Mon. Oct. 14 Detroit 1 p.m.
Thu. Oct. 17 At Florida 7:30 p.m.
Sat. Oct. 19 At Tampa Bay 7 p.m.

As always one of the better Boston based bloggers out there.
First off, it should be noted that the Boston Herald broke this Rolling Stone story on page 3 of yesterday’s edition (don’t ask about the little green numbers – no idea why they keep popping up):
Today, the feisty local tabloid went for broke:
The one dissenting voice was columnist Margery Eagan, but she was drowned out by the other coverage, which included a couple of news reports and the always-enlightening comments of Herald readers.
Our personal favorite among the reader responses:
‘McDreamy’ photo won’t get oldies loser Rolling
Hey, Rolling Stone magazine! Next time you want to prove how provocative and edgy you are, put a flattering photo of George Zimmerman on your cover.

I really hate listening to people who say Boston cowered, or Boston was under martial law. We were not scared, we are not stupid. We got out of the way and let the PROFESSIONALS DO THEIR JOBS!
So tell me, all you “I would have grabbed my gun and found the bomber” if a house in your neighborhood is on fire do you get in the way of the firemen with your garden hose? No you get out of the way and let the professionals do THEIR jobs. Which is what we did this week, just as we did during Snowstorm Nemo, we got the hell out of the way and let the professionals do their jobs.
I tremble to think how many other people would have been injured if every person in the Greater Boston area grabbed a gun and went out looking for the brothers. Do the police arrest everyone? How many scared people shoot each other because they “might” be the bad guy? What Boston, and Greater Boston did was the right thing, we got out of the way and let the professionals do their job. One of those professionals lost his life doing his job, a second officer is fighting for his life. For both those men we are grateful. For all the people injured we stand with you, and will help you live again. For those who lost their lives, we can never replace you, but we will stand with your families and they will not morn alone.
For the rest of you jerks, shut up.
Last June I was cold called by someone who wanted to offer me an job as an Occupational Safety Engineer. I use to get those calls a lot, more so when I was still married, as that is the name my degree is under. It got slower over the years, but still I would get the calls. How people found me I don’t know, because while I did tell my university of my name change, I never changed it on my transcripts or my diploma. I wonder how much that would cost, BYW.
My last call was according to my personal blog June 17th 2011. It’s June 29th which means it has been a full year since I received a job offer. It could be my age, I am 52, or it could be that all the people I told to enter my field have done so and the jobs are filled. Or perhaps
Either way, it’s been a year, and quite a year it was. Over all my health has been stable, not better than in past years, but I have a new normal now.

From our Six Feet Under desk:
Coincidentally or not, the New York Times has run two pieces in the past few days about the racial divide in the burial business.
From Friday’s Times:
JASPER, Tex. — For more than 100 years, a rickety iron fence separated the black graves from the white ones at a cemetery in this East Texas town. Months after the brutal murder here of James Byrd Jr., a black man chained to a pickup truck and dragged to death by three white men on June 7, 1998, the fence was torn down by residents as a sign of unity and reconciliation.
Fourteen years later, Jasper City Cemetery remains segregated: blacks, including Mr. Byrd, are buried near the bottom of the hill, while whites are buried at the top.
“It’s our custom, here in the South, here…
