Andrew Brunette attempts to find a cushy place to sit after eating an entire box of chocolates on one shift.
Here I am, roughly 9 AM on a Monday, slaving over this laptop. I ran out of chocolates yesterday, but I am battling through. I just work so hard... I think I deserve a good chocolate every now and again, you know? And some cookies. I definitely deserve cookies.
Turns out, when we wrote our game re-cap, that maybe Todd Richards was reading. It was suggested that Richards run the team through "Herbies" until they got the point. I think they got it, and I think Tom Powers should have been out on the ice yesterday to learn the lesson as well. He wasn't, so instead, we'll continue to beat the proverbial dead horse. Mostly because it adds value to my day.

Enjoy the day all. Don't work too hard, and for Pete's sake, people. Buy some chocolates, will ya?
