This is my favorite time of the year. The baseball playoffs are on (which I can basically just enjoy this year without any anxiety), the autumn weather in Northern California is fucking fantastic, and hockey is back. Everyone is excited about possibilities right now.
If your team sucks, it's early enough to right the ship, even if you're the New York Rangers. If your team is good, you're imagining 6 more months of unbroken awesomeness. If you're a 19 year old dillweed from the Czech Republic, you're alternating between scoring a bazillion filthy goals from in close, getting yelled at by old men, and throwing your shit all over the ice. If you're Jonathan Quick, you're doing your best bored-Patrick-Roy impression* and practicing your deflections, knowing that none of this shit really matters much right now. The stakes are low, the crowds are excited for games, and good or bad everyone is just trying to figure out whether any of it is sustainable.
It's been an especially hilarious and fruitful week here at BoC for stupidity and dick-talk (two of the pillars of our community).

Nope. Banged her every time I saw her.
The Week's Worst Comment
This week it's a whatever-way tie with all the fucking @oracle animated gif requests. I thought when the robots took over, it'd be awesome laser carnage in the streets as they destroyed all humans. Instead, it's like the least funny 4chan poster got invited to make every other comment.
