Why Pro Wrestling Is A Perfect Metaphor For Trump’s Presidency (And Ten Things Donald Trump Learned From ‘rasslin)

Trump continues to do things that no President has ever done before. As a lifelong fan of wrestling, I agree with much of what this commentator says (and have said it myself as well – scroll down to “American Idol” in this post from right after he won the Presidency.) Basically, in my view, Trump is […]

End of Year Track Meet

One of the things that seems like a downside of my current job at a branch is that I have to do some evening and weekend work. But sometimes that turns out to be an advantage. Because I worked this past weekend, I had Monday and Tuesday off.  And so I was able to go […]

Saturday Snap – The Exact Opposite of Us Pulling an rPod With A Minivan?

Pulling a giant fifth wheel RV with a semi – something I’ve never seen before! The family happened to be around when I snapped this pic so I stopped and chatted for a minute – the dad said they had their big rig to pull a semi trailer that had been customized as living quarters […]

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – Sk8r Boi (April 2012)

Pace is really into skateboarding now so it was interesting to come across this picture from when he was five which is probably the first time he ever tried out a skateboard. This was taken in the backyard of one of Shea’s friends whose husband is also really into skateboarding and other extreme sports.

Mike Bossy: Letter To My Younger Self

The Player’s Tribute site has some brilliant writing by famous athletes. Today’s post is by my favourite hockey player of all-time. Dear 14-year-old Mike, I write to you today as a 60-year-old man, and I have some news from the future that you probably aren’t going to believe. There are 30 teams in the NHL […]

Saturday Snap – Thrasher

I have no idea what move this is (ollie?) but Pace assures me that it’s cool. 😉

Music Monday – “He might have lots of dough but I know he ain’t right for you.” (Some Thoughts on The New Mosaic Stadium) #reginarocks #yqr

This is one of Bryan Adams’ best songs and it was only ever a “B” side (though it must’ve gotten regular rotation on the radio or video channels when it came out as I feel like I know it quite well!) Having attended the “Regina Rocks” test event at the new Mosaic Stadium last Saturday […]

Go Flames Go!

One of the worst playoff series ever – Flames outplayed Ducks in three games and are down 3-0. Go Flames Go! Meme courtesy of Pace who is a major hockey fan! 😉  

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!
