Akron is not Manhattan, but anyone who has been to the Cuyahoga Valley knows that, though it is not Manhattan, Akron is a wonderful place to spend the Summer. <3 rubber city

@Vicky I came here to say the same thing! People would be consuming much less caffeine if NHL playoff games didn't go into OT so often.

I saw Taco Bell advertising a "NEW smothered burrito" the other day.

Like, I wonder what would happen if it wasn't set at such a "funny" show?

This all feels a bit... fish-in-barrel.

@georgina sorry to throw armchair diagnoses out there but perhaps he has a touch of Asperger's?

I like your advice but just please, no. Reluctance to give compliments and respond to mild feedback and hinting =/= asperger's. It's just inappropriate to suggest that! You know hardly anything about this dude!

@Regina, people in general can be weird about compliments. He might be slightly unable to take a compliment and feel uncomfortable giving them too, because he's all overthinking it like "omg now if I compliment her she'll think it's just because she just complimented me aaaahhhh etc". How does he react to the compliments and gestures you give him?

@Vicky I missed this news somehow! I may or may not have cried listening to Lindy give his farewell speech.

@Vicky I was kind of hoping we (where we = New York Rangers, of which OBVIOUSLY I am a pertinent part, personally) would hire him. I always liked him as a coach, and there is no one in the league with a more delightfully silly name.

@Emma Carmichael I've always felt like the Hairpin was based in New York, even though of course internet isn't necessarily "based" anywhere geographically, and I'm pretty sure the majority of readers are* from New York as well. I don't mind it, I think it's kind of cool actually, specifically because I'm not from there. Not to say @thelibrarianne's feelings aren't true and valid, just offering my 2 cents.

*although oh my GOD i would LOVE to see some kind of map showing where all the Pinners are from.
