Replays Not Penalty Kicks

In the interest of clarity , let me point out that the following post is about football. Not the game we call football here in North America, but the Beautiful Game we refer to as soccer. Last weekend Italy won the Euro Cup by defeating England. I can’t say I’m a big football fan, butContinue reading “Replays Not Penalty Kicks”

McGill University And Cancel Culture

Recently the administrative powers that be at McGill University succumbed to pressure from cancel culture adherents and removed a statue of founder James McGill from the main campus. James McGill was not only the university’s founder, but was, like many wealthy folks of his vintage, an owner of slaves. Does removing the statue erase thisContinue reading “McGill University And Cancel Culture”

Trump Denounces Those Who Kneed; Ignores Those in Need

In the aftermath of the most recent hurricane to hit Puerto Rico President Trump has clearly opted to remain focused on the NFL players, coaches and owners protest. How can a person who claims to be trying to unite the country act so divisively? Although I can understand one thinking it is mere stupidity, IContinue reading “Trump Denounces Those Who Kneed; Ignores Those in Need”

Sports Look Faster In Person – Usually

I am a fan of sports. But not being a fan of crowds I tend to limit myself to television coverage. Recently we were given a pair of “Prestige Passes” to attend the Rogers Cup ATP event in Montreal. Settling in I was pleased that there were several empty seats to my right, affording me plentyContinue reading “Sports Look Faster In Person – Usually”

Colin Kaepernick’s Protest: Good Cause, Bad Practice?

In the lead up to the 2016 National Football League season San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is getting much more attention for his sideline protest than for his performance on the field. As you have no doubt heard, Kaepernick is refusing to stand up for the pre-game playing of the American national anthem. HeContinue reading “Colin Kaepernick’s Protest: Good Cause, Bad Practice?”

Real Madrid and Costa Ricans in Montreal

I can’t claim to be a big football (soccer) fan, but I do watch the big events like UEFA and the World Cup. Regardless of my lack of knowledge, the words Real Madrid are well known to me. Like the New York Yankees and Montreal Canadiens, the team from Spain is known the world over.Continue reading “Real Madrid and Costa Ricans in Montreal”

Brandon Prust: The Edward Snowden of the NHL

In recent years the National Hockey League has taken strides to clean up its act, namely by attempting to totally eliminate fighting. Fine, but it may now want to take a look at its officials if it wants to be taken seriously.

Super Bowl XLIX: But What if He Had Caught the Pass?

Let me suggest that the same Pete Carroll would have been hailed as a genius. A modern day Vince Lombardi. A ballsy guy. It’s almost 48-hours since the end of Super Bowl XLIX and the so called “stupid call” heard round the world. Just in case you missed it, the Seattle Seahawks, trailing by threeContinue reading “Super Bowl XLIX: But What if He Had Caught the Pass?”
