    When you look back on the whole experience - Bruce, small theater, NYC - was it one of your best trips?  One that you will long remember?

    It was amazing. Completely different than an E Street Band show at MSG but amazing nonetheless. 
    That said once was enough for me. I like trying new cities/venues so looking forward to something different again on the 2022 tour.

  2. I can see both sides of the argument. It is a very expensive ticket.
    For me it was a bucket list trip to see my musical hero in an intimate setting. I’ve never tried for the pit when I’ve gone to a regular Bruce show because my friends who go with me are more casual fans so this was my chance to get up close and personal with Bruce. By the time I added in flights, hotels, etc. the ticket price itself was, in my opinion, a reasonable percentage of the overall trip’s cost.

    That will be a great show Dan, I hope you have a great evening. Saw them at the Ryman a few years back and it was a wonderful show, Jason is a top notch writer and virtuoso on the guitar. His lovely wife is phenomenal on the fiddle, too.

    Yes. The wife of a Scouting friend died and her kids couldn't even say good bye. All while the hockey teams gotten to travel back and forth. Open the damn borders! https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.thestar.com/amp/news/canada/2020/08/15/dont-let-this-happen-to-anyone-else-families-seek-change-to-us-canada-border-rules.html

    I’m sorry that family couldn’t say goodbye, that is heartbreaking.  The rules have made no sense on multiple occasions but most Canadians were against an open border until the vaccinations in the US ramped up.
     

    That being said NHL teams haven’t been allowed to cross back and forth over the border whenever they please.  American teams were allowed to be part of the “bubble” used to complete the season last year under an agreement with the NHL, the NHLPA, and various levels of Canadian government. This year no American teams have travelled to Canada nor have any Canadian teams gone to the US. That will change soon though as the semi-final round begins. Hopefully the border itself will open to citizens from both countries soon.

    Oh :(

    I was hoping my buddy  @gus could go again 

    The border is supposed to remain closed until at least June 21st but I know quite a few people who have travelled south to the US in the last few months.  Pressure is beginning to mount to open the border as vaccinations administered increase in both countries.

    During the Penguins game last night one of the Pens gave what looked to me like a clean hit on one of the Bruins.  There was no penalty called initially but play was stopped because the Bruin player was injured.

    While the Boston staff was checking on their player the refs went to video review and ended up calling a 5 minute major penalty for boarding and a game misconduct.

    I saw 2 articles today, one from a Pittsburgh writer, and one from a Boston writer, both thought it was a clean hit.

    Article from a Boston writer - BHN Daily: Sid The Kid Sounds Off On NHL Inconsistency

    Article from a Pittsburgh writer - WHAT A TERRIBLE CALL

    The Boston article also mentions that one of the refs for the game was also a ref for the game were Tom Wilson of the Caps went head hunting and wasn't given a penalty, but was suspended 7 games.

    Here is a Tweet that has video of the hit.

    Looked like a good hit to me. Unfortunate for Tinordi but Tanev threw a clean check.

    I have made mistakes, but I’ve never proceeded to operate a motor vehicle while having symptoms that would fail a sobriety test.

    I operate a motor vehicle every day while having symptoms that would fail a sobriety test thanks to a stroke. Doesn’t make me dangerous on the road. 

    We’ll see what happens with Bruce and his charges
