    OK folks, here's you thread for Hints, Hauls, and Hijinx! I'll be getting pairings out over the next couple days. Thank you all for joining up.

    Five and a half years ago, i thought a BIF focused on the weekly NBS thread would be fun, so I floated the idea one Sunday. There was a lot of positive response, but, nobody stepped up to run the thing. So, without ever having participated in a BIF, I just jumped in. Fools rush in, where angels fear to tread. @LehighAce06 was kind enough to offer guidance, and he held my hand for the first several rounds. without his expert help, this thing would have sunk at launch.

    Folks, it's time for me to step aside from this creature. @malty started NBS, and shepherded it for years, and he turned the reins over @mattcrill . Who handed it over to @cavedave and @utopiajane .

    I have my successors lined up, but I've used all my tags for one post, so you'll have to hold on for my follow-up post. I want to thank everyone who has participated in these BIFs, and thus helped NBS grow into the awesome thing it is each week. I'll be remaining as a participant and consigliere emiritus.

    Cheers, and thank you.

    All right nerds lets get this shit rolling! There is a BIG hockey game tomorrow night for my Philadelphia Flyers as they head to Washington to take on the Caps in a major division matchup.

    I am gonna go ahead and dive right in and sponsor the first contest for this BIF (I think you call them LIFs?) - guess the winner of the Flyers- Caps game AND the total number of goals scored - closest to the total # of goals scored with the correct winner will get a box of some Chicago goodies. Entries can be posted here up until puck drop at 7 PM EST.

    Hint #1 - I have never shipped beer to my target before
    Hint #2 - if somebody were to ask me how much more black one of the colors in my target's profile picture could be, I'd have to say none. None more black.

    I’ve never officially traded into this state, and it can a tough place to ship into in the winter.

    Just out of curiosity I see that 27 states touch the Atlantic/ Pacific Ocean and the Great Lakes. Some touch both.

    As a Pens fan what do I win if I predict that the Earth opens up and swallows up both teams entirely? I'll go Caps with 4 goals total.
