“Spelling” – NHL 2017 Stanley Cup Ad (and some previous kick ass ones)

Man, the NHL really kicks ass with their annual Stanley Cup ads. Here are a few I could find… 2017 – Spelling 2015 – Name 2013 – Handshake 2012 – Boys 2010 – No Words 2008 – Cup Raise

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 arenโ€™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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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 […]

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”…

Flames Are On A Great Run

After a crappy start to the season, the Flames have rebounded and gone 8-1-1 in their last ten games to leap back into playoff contention. They’re losing to the Lightning tonight (5-3 as I type this) so they might eat a loss after winning six in a row but it’s great that the season has […]
