Friday Fun Link – Mapping NHL Standings Over An Entire Season

With the Flames in the midst of a multi-game winning streak that’s put them back in a playoff spot, I wanted to highlight this site which is pretty cool for showing how a team’s fortunes ebb and flow over the course of a season.

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Go Flames Go! (February 2008)

The Flames won their fifth game in a row tonight to get back into a playoff position (technically, that happened last game which they also won.) Anyhow, I came across this old picture of Pace climbing on his grandparents’ air hockey table and thought that was sorta related to tonight’s good news…

Saturday Snap – Playing Giant Jenga? Better Break Out The Protective Gear!

As a precaution, Sasha put on her boots and brother’s skateboarding helmet at New Year’s to play the lifesize Jenga game that Grandpa Dennis made for us. I’d upload the video of the game finally toppling when Grandma Joan tried a difficult move but I jumped pretty high myself when it toppled over! 😉

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Google’s “2017 Year in Search”

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…for all the many “best of” retrospective lists and articles and posts that come out. The Google Search compilation is usually one of the best (the YouTube Rewind one, not so much!)

Friday Fun Link – #HereComeTheOilers

After starting the season by blowing out the Flames with Connor McDavid getting a hat trick, the Edmonton Oilers, who were widely seen as a Stanley Cup contender, have sunk to near the bottom of the NHL (this year but by some historic measures as well).  Forget the Stanley Cup, even a playoff appearance is […]

At Least There Was One Unexpected Sports Victory Today ;-) #skpoli @ryanmeili @premierbradwall

In my quest to bring you all the hardest hitting political news, I have to note the somewhat shocking development that Ryan Meili beat noted Sports Cage call-in regular, “Brad from Swift Current” in sending out a timely tweet about the Roughriders’ tough loss today. It took “Brad from Swift Current” TWELVE full minutes before […]

Saturday Snap – Tobogganing

Enjoyed a day off last Monday by taking the kids tobogganing…

UFC 217 Might Be Best MMA PPV of All-Time?

I don’t pay a lot of attention to UFC for the most part unless it’s a big name or a big fight or when my love of pro wrestling intersects with the world of “real” fighting via someone like Brock Lesnar or CM Punk participating. And I rarely to never watch the live PPVs, usually […]

Saturday Snap – Hanging Around at Final Parkour Class

Pace had his final parkour class for this session last Wednesday.  Just another day hanging from the rafters…

Vegas Golden Knights Inexplicably Just Keep Winning

Although they had a better lot than previous expansion teams, no one would’ve predicted it at the start of the season. But after not quite a month of NHL hockey, the league’s latest expansion team, The Vegas Golden Knights, have the highest winning percentage in the league. It’s probably not sustainable but then again, nobody thought […]
