Now, that’s more like it! Two straight wins, two good, physical games where the Lightning shut down the Bruins’ top scoring line and controlled the flow. If they can keep this up, they have a real shot at the cup… especially if the Stamkos line starts producing. Go, Bolts!
Well, that was ugly. It’s way too early to count the Bolts out of this series, but that game didn’t give me a lot of confidence, I was concerned about how the Lightning would play against the more physical teams like Boston. Hope they figure out how to answer in Game 2. ?
Boy… you gotta respect the Penguins during the playoffs. They’re so talented and they make you pay for every mistake. The Flyers gave them a good fight, though.
Dan Zollman and his awesome nonsense poster at #ias18.
Capped off the first day of #IAS18 by having dinner at Mercat a la Planxa with our first cohort of IA Summit Student Scholars. The food was outstanding, and we couldn’t have asked for a better group to share it with. What a great night.
Just landed in Chicago. Now starts the final prep for #IAS18. Keeping my fingers crossed for folks on the east coast that their travel won’t be disrupted this week.
From my theatre days, I know the different kinds of feelings you can get before opening a show. Sometimes you know nothing is quite working and the show is going to flop. (And sometimes you’re wrong, which is nice.) Sometimes you’re oblivious to the flaws in the thing you’re working on, but you know something’s not quite right. And sometimes, you feel like everything is clicking. Sometimes you just know: this is going to be a good one.
I feel the same nervous/excited energy about IA Summit that I felt before a good show.
The work is done (or nearly so), we’ve planned as much as we can plan, and all we can do now is open the house, do our best, and adapt as necessary. I really can’t wait for Wednesday to come so that we can get this show on the road.
It’s a good morning. I’ve got my cup of tea, the cats are lounging in the sunshine, I’m working on lA Summit stuff on the computer, and there’s Lightning hockey on the TV. Bliss.
I’m just dipping my toes into Letterboxd for keeping my ratings and watchlists, but I’m not totally convinced I want to switch. For those of you who are using it, what’s the advantage over IMDb?
