Linus & The Big Bad Bruins: NHL Regular Season Champs

Linus & The Big Bad Bruins: NHL Regular Season Champs

The NHL regular season is now over. The Boston Bruins had the most points in the league, lead by the outstanding goaltending of Linus Ullmark. For coming 1st overall, the Bruins were awarded the President's Trophy. I can't think of a more meaningless NHL award that that! No player, coach, or owner ever says, "Gee, I hope we win the President's Trophy this year!" It's all about how a team performs in the playofffs. Winning the Stanley Cup is the only real goal! As usual, 16 teams made the playoffs and the battle for the Stanley Cup has become. The quality of the sport improves greatly in the playoffs. That is the most true for hockey.

Dave Morrissey

Dave is an accomplished economics instructor with over two decades of experience in the prestigious International Baccalaureate program. His students have consistently ranked in the top 10% annually, and one year they achieved the highest overall class average in the world. This outstanding achievement led a UK publisher to request that he write a textbook, an offer he declined in favor of creating sports quizzes, which he found more engaging.

In addition to his teaching career, Dave is also a former high school football coach, having won a couple of local championships. While he wishes he had won more, he continues to be deeply involved in football as a scout, recruiter, and social media creator for a university football team.

Dave's passions extend beyond the classroom and football field. He is an avid fan of live music and international travel, often combining these interests. He has traveled to Spain, England, Iceland, and Chile to see bands perform. His greatest pride and joy is his daughter, who has recently excelled in powerlifting. In just a few years, she has become the Canadian record holder for the bench press in her weight class and finished second overall in the combined national event (bench, deadlift, and squat) in Moose Jaw in March 2024. She will be representing Canada at the World Bench Competition in Austin, Texas, in May 2024.

A die-hard fan of the Las Vegas Raiders, Dave has experienced his share of sports heartache, having seen them play in seven NFL cities with six losses. His all-time favorite athlete is Don Mattingly, reflecting his deep love for sports that spans many arenas.
