Friday Fun Link – Angry Hockey Player Crosschecks Himself

Throwback Thursday – #tbt – CalgaryPuck.com Scammer

Instead of my usual photo from the past, today’s post is unusual for a couple reasons – it’s a link to a web forum thread and I hadn’t seen it at the time it was originally posted a year ago.  In fact, I had no knowledge of it until recently. But I wanted to share […]

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 […]

Happy Canada Day, eh?

Gord Downie Taught Me To Dance: Memories of A Band That Defined Me and My Country

So I woke up today to the very sad news that Gord Downie, lead singer of the Tragically Hip, has terminal brain cancer. Obviously, as you age, it’s natural that your own heroes and icons will age ahead of you. But 2016 has been a rough year where we lost some top-shelf music icons – […]

My Stanley Cup Picks

I usually post this at the start of the playoffs but forgot to do so this year. But I did honestly make these picks before the playoff began – I’ve got a patron who I often chat about hockey with.  He asked who I was picking so this is what I told him… Bold is […]
