Brian Burke Takes a Parting Shot at Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun in Closing Press Conference

Sunday, January 13th, 2013

I was watching the replay online of Brian Burke‘s final press conference with the Leafs and was caught a bit off guard with the jab he threw at the Toronto Sun’s Steve Simmons after Steve asked a question about the US Olympic team. Then again, it’s classic Brian Burke.

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Ryan Miller of the Buffalo Sabres isn’t having the best of luck in net lately, from the Lucic hit to Jordan TooToo running him over. Now, Ryan Miller gets his mask knocked off by his own player and then stops the puck with his face. (more…)

Cam Cole has an article today talking about Paul LaPolice (current head coach of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers) and the “too many men on the field” (the 13th man!) penalty against his team when he was the offensive coordinator with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the 2009 Grey Cup. (more…)

Monday, November 8th, 2010

A few days ago Sidney Crosby got into his fifth career NHL fight. Five seemed a lot to me, but sure enough, five it is. We have the video evidence, in chronological order, below. (more…)

US Open Tennis Fight: Video

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

Ah yes, some leisurely and polite fans watching US Open tennis, right?… Oh, scratch that. Some kid at a US Open tennis match gets a bit too lippy for the two next to him (a middle-age woman and senior gentleman) and first the woman decides to do something about it. Some stern words and a slap to the face isn’t the end, though. (more…)

Football Dives: World Cup 2010 and Beyond

Friday, June 25th, 2010

One thing many fans can’t stand is diving (and by football, we’re talking ‘soccer‘!). Diving has become some what of an art form – and one that tarnishes the ‘beautiful game’ for sure. Even in World Cup 2010 we’re seeing some ‘incredible’ dives. (more…)

Watch The World Juniors Online

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2009

It’s that time of year again. Along with the Christmas holidays brings the IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship. That means Canadians across the country get together and watch the hockey tournament that Canada is expected to win gold, year after year. For those of us without TSN or stuck in our offices during the tournament, the question is how to watch it online. This year, once again, TSN will be streaming the games live on their Web site at tsn.ca. The full schedule of games being streamed online includes every game for Team Canada as well as every playoff game. The schedule this year is quite good, with games shown on weekends, holidays or during prime time in the Eastern time zone. That means a more productive office place, or so one would think. The first game shown online is Canada’s first: Boxing Day at 3:30pm Eastern. The opponent is Latvia. That one could get messy. See you online!





Oh, wait, before I go, here’s one of the more memorable moments in World Junior Hockey. I remember watching this as a kid: The short story is that the Soviets had nothing to lose (but Canada did) so when a skirmish occurred on the ice Soviet players left the bench to join in. The Canadians followed, as to not be outnumbered, and mayhem began. They even turned out the lights for lack of any better way to restore order. Crazy stuff. Oh, and Don Cherry had more than a few things to say as well. See that in the second clip, below. (Aside: I love those old CBC jackets!)





Looks like you can watch the entire 1987 ‘brawl’ game online starting with this clip (1 of 26).

Free To Be (The Leaf’s Song) by Alan Frew: Canada’s Team?

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

The Post had a front page article today about the new unofficial Toronto Maple Leafs anthem ‘Free To Be’ (the Leaf’s Song) by former Glass Tiger front man Alan Frew. It seems to be ruffling feathers across Canada as it declares the Maple Leafs to be ‘Canada’s Team’. Catchy tune, sure, but I think fans of the rest of Canada’s NHL teams may have something to say about the lyrics. Judge for yourself, below.
