Erica, is it true that you can't get a Boston Bun in Boston??

"too worldly to compete on /b/" (King Boy Pato), Tuesday, 23 June 2009 12:43 (nine years ago) Permalink

as a lifelong bostonian, i feel qualified to note that i have never heard of that thing.

unlucky son (call all destroyer), Tuesday, 23 June 2009 13:11 (nine years ago) Permalink

Well hello dere!

Like Mr. Call All Destroyer I have neither heard of nor seen a Boston Bun in my life. They look pretty good though. Would try.

You should probably add CAD to the thread title since he may be more qualified than I to answer NE related questions although I am more than happy to try/assist.

Any others?

What do I look like, a board admin? Anyway...

Is it true that McDonalds will sell you a Lobster Roll up there? Do they call it a McLobster Roll??

"too worldly to compete on /b/" (King Boy Pato), Tuesday, 23 June 2009 14:21 (nine years ago) Permalink

Hmmmm . . . I haven't seen lobster rolls at McDonalds but to be fair, I don't go there very often. The internet tells me that they were, in fact, a seasonal menu item available in some parts of NE and eastern Canada.

It's apparently called the McLobster Sandwich:

There are so many places where you can get good lobster rolls that I'd be a little nervous about getting on at McDs but would probably try anyway out of curiosity.

Do you know about Shamrock Shakes? Those might be of interest to you.

Also, I like how the "Cultural" Corner has been about fast food so far.

☺☻☺☻come on ppl now smile on u brother☺☻☺☻ (ENBB), Tuesday, 23 June 2009 14:42 (nine years ago) Permalink

yeah the lobster roll gets advertised as a seasonal/limited item. but it is such a delicate and wonderful creation that it deserves better than a bastardized mcd's edition.

assuming you forgo the frozen meal, hit the Pru food court or head over to Newbury and try Bosstone Pizza

He works in the Pru and I work directly across from it so we've hit the food crt numerous times. Have not been to Bosstone Pizza though - am intrigued!

it used to be a divey pizza place with awesome slices; now it is apparently a Trading Spaces victim, hopefully still with awesome slices

that place has damn good sicilian slices iirc. also there is an upper crust on newbury now.

i wish the garden of eden was still open--more of a walk but amazing sandwiches.

Anyway, back on track: when are the Hartford Whalers coming back to the NHL? They had the BEST 1970s graphic design in a sporting team's logo ever.

"too worldly to compete on /b/" (King Boy Pato), Wednesday, 24 June 2009 09:46 (nine years ago) Permalink

ummm probably never. hartford is not a major sports (or even second-tier-nhl-level) city. everyone in ct is either a boston or nyc sports loyalist and the nhl has forgotten that it's a regional league.

unlucky son (call all destroyer), Wednesday, 24 June 2009 13:30 (nine years ago) Permalink

Yeah but...the logo and uniforms! It's much better than that old rubbish that Bruins rock up in.

"too worldly to compete on /b/" (King Boy Pato), Wednesday, 24 June 2009 13:35 (nine years ago) Permalink

Glad CAD jumped in cause I had nothing for this one. However, I just checked and those were indeed some amazing uniforms.

☺☻☺☻come on ppl now smile on u brother☺☻☺☻ (ENBB), Wednesday, 24 June 2009 13:41 (nine years ago) Permalink

watch y'self kbp the bruins uniforms are classicer than classic.

unlucky son (call all destroyer), Wednesday, 24 June 2009 13:44 (nine years ago) Permalink

btw old-school vancouver canucks is probably the high point of the design yr talking about:

Canucks retro design is long played out, especially with their current uniforms!

Let's move into the world of art: Best Wahlberg? (aka NKOTB or Marky Mark & The Funky Bunch?)

"too worldly to compete on /b/" (King Boy Pato), Wednesday, 24 June 2009 13:54 (nine years ago) Permalink

Nice - going straight to Boston's finest contributors to the art world.

This is a tough one for me because Donnie was my favorite NKOTB but I also like M. Wahlberg! I will have to think on this one.

Also:

Yeah despite my preteen love for D. Marky Mark kind of wins this one hands down.

I'm definetly in the Marky Mark camp. "Good Vibrations" is a bangin' tune and he's been in great movies like The Departed. And The Happening, let's not forget The Happening.

the whale, sadly, will never resurface in the nhl. partly because they played in a mall. some, however, still mourn them.

meanwhile what can you, king boy pato, tell us about NICK HORVATH

mookieproof, Thursday, 25 June 2009 11:21 (nine years ago) Permalink

Hartford was ahead of its time. Didn't they turn the old Montreal Forum into a mall?

According to Nick Horvath's Wikipedia entry, he played for the Adelaide 36ers which I certainly will rep him for that. However, he left for the South Dragons, which makes him the worst person alive.

~~~***~~~INTERMISSION~~~***~~~

Now that Australia's NBL is PROBABLY dead, King Boy Pato, will rank THE TOP TEAM TEAMS that have played in Australia's premier basketball competition.

1. ADELAIDE 36ERS

Back before the SANFL reduced to second league status by those wankers from Melbourne, there was only one team for South Australians. No, it wasn't the local shitty cricket team. It was straight outta Apollo Stadium then THE CLIPSAL POWERHOUSE with the razzle dazzle in blue, red and gold headed up by The Chairman of the Boooards, Mark Davis! I might have only been a year old when the 36ers won their first NBL Championship but I grew up hearing the stories of how the Super Sixers lit up Apollo Stadium, led by a man called Ken Cole who coached the team in between snorting coke. Unfortunately, when we won that trio of turn-of-the-century championships, we had a slightly less exciting coach: Phil Smyth.

"Famous fans include television presenter Grant Denyer, and former World Number 1 Tennis Player Lleyton Hewitt."

2. SOUTH EAST MELBOURNE MAGIC

For the name alone. Excessively geographically precise AND a lazy-as-you-like BA ripoff nickname.

3. EASTSIDE SPECTERS

Apparently the name was RACIST.

4. GOLD COAST COUGARS

Now when you talk about Gold Coast Cougars, it's 30 and 40 something women with excessively fake tans??

5. GEELONG SUPERCATS

This shows you how popular and awesome and great basketball was in Australia. Aussie Rules had to do with merely "Cats" but the hoops heroes upped the ante to infinity with SUPERCATS!!

6. PERTH WILDCATS

I grudging give mad respect to the bros out west. They're not the Melbourne Tigers or Sydney Kings and they helped up keep the Mitsubishi Trophy away from the big smoke.

7. WEST SYDNEY RAZORBACKS

Would be higher if it wasn't for the "Sydney Spirit" DEBACLE!!

8. SINGAPORE SLINGERS

Can you believe that Singapore wasn't into third-rate basketball???

9. WOLLONGONG HAWKS

If the new NBL doesn't have them in, it won't be the NBL. PUTTING IT BACK IN OUR COMMUNITY, YO.

10. TOWNSVILLE CROCODILES

You weren't expecting the Canberra Cannons, were you?
