Friday Fun Link – Southpaw Regional Wrestling

WWE has released some short web-only videos of a fictional 1980’s wrestling promotion, Southpaw Regional Wrestling. Current superstars play up the stereotypical characters and tropes of that era of wrestling with love, affection and great humour – which makes this one of the most entertaining things WWE has done in the past year! Here’s a […]

Saturday Snap – 306 Hip Hop Sk8 Shop

Pace got a skateboard for Christmas but it took us awhile to get him to 306 Skate Shop in north Regina to try it out at their indoor skate park. (To be honest, we wanted to wait until after our Mexico vacation on the off-chance he managed to break an arm or something!) Anyhow, we […]

Friday Fun Link – Angry Hockey Player Crosschecks Himself

Saturday Snap – Sk8r Kidz

How did our nine year old become a teenager? And of course his little sister idolizes him and if brother’s a skateboarder, she’s a “skateboarder friend”…

Saturday Snap – Farewell Mosiac Stadium #riders #yqr #mosaicmoments #mosaicmemories

Everyone else is sharing their memories of Taylor Field today so I thought I’d share a few of mine… I have no memory of my first game but I have two aunts who’ve had season tickets since forever so as a kid, we’d occasionally be given their tickets and I’d get to go to a […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Dad, What’s a Video Store? (November 2009)

I never realised how the Netflix interface of rows of similar-themed movies mimics the layout of an old-fashioned video store. (Also note, this was around Grey Cup time and Pace was sporting a Riders jacket *and* green hair!)
