My wife and I are doing a little traveling this week. We were at the San Francisco airport on Saturday where we searched out for a place to watch the Bruins-Canucks Stanley Cup Finals. Unfortunately the one with the with the best view of the game was the right next to a flight to British Columbia. There were a few people from Boston like ourselves waiting for our flight, but we were clearly out-numbered. It was a strange being in the United States and thinking, “We couldn’t even pull off a USA chant here.”
In a related note, Alex Burrows of the Canucks is in Boston tonight and I just hope he has Secret Service level security. I don’t really expect any difficulties, but after he bit a Bruins player, somehow avoided league suspension, and single-handedly won the second game there are likely some Bruin fans who may not react friendly towards him. I’m not condoning it, but recognizing that there are people who take sports a little too far and those people exist in Boston as they do everywhere.
Before I get to the links, I want to offer you a chance to win $10. I have a bit of a problem. My favorite hair pomade, one that I’ve used for nearly a decade now seems to have disappeared from store shelves. I say “seems” because I can’t be sure. Why am I not sure? Well, their product lasts so long that a single jar has lasted me multiple years. The name wears off the jar in the first couple of months. So it’s been a long, long time since I’ve seen the name of the product. Here is what I think I know. The brand name is around 6 letters long and starts with M. I think it has a “v” in it and maybe and “n” or a “d”. I think it has a consonant, vowel, consonant, vowel, etc. structure. So I thought it was Movano or something like that. Unfortunately I can’t find any mention of anything close on the Internet. Additionally, the product has/had a blue plastic round jar and a silver top – similar shape as most pomades on the market. Anyway, I ask for you help on tracking this product down, even if it is just to confirm that the company went out of business. The first person who can help me resolve this wins $10 payable through Paypal. Feel free to use the comments below on this.
