Genie Bouchard makes Aussie Open semis, wants to date Justin Bieber

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

Just as we should have been talking about Richard Sherman's NFC title-clinching deflection, today we should be focused on the tennis prowess of 19-year-old Canadian tennis phenom Genie Bouchard. With a 5-7, 7-5, 6-2 win over Ana Ivanovic, Bouchard became the first Canadian to reach the semifinal of a major ...

Maple Leafs gag up Game 7 to Bruins

Tuesday, May 14th, 2013

Maybe it was karmic retribution for allowing the team to be the focal point of "The Love Guru." The Toronto Maple Leafs became the first team in NHL history to squander a three-goal lead in the third period of a Game 7 on Monday night, getting eliminated by the Boston Bruins ...

Matt Stairs: Canadian Baseball Robot

Saturday, July 2nd, 2011

Matt Stairs is hardly what any of us would call a physical specimen, unless we happened to be Jared before he took the first trip to the Subway beneath his apartment. That's a true story. He lived above Subway. Make it a Burger King and he'd have been craned out ...

Living the Canadian Dream

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

For our friends north of the border, it's a week poised to go down as one of the greatest in Canada's history, ranking right up there with the discovery of back bacon and when Alanis Morissette moved to Los Angeles. (Isn't it ironic that I made fun of you, Alanis?) The ...

Monday Roundball & the Merits of Naming Your Child “Lou”

Monday, March 1st, 2010

After watching the spectacular gold medal game between the U.S. and Canada, one distinct thought stood out in my mind.  Forget the fact that I just witnessed the most exciting and most dramatic hockey game I had ever seen.  Who cares that I played the under 5.5 goals on a whim and won even though I don't ...

So, Yeah, Canada is Still Good at Hockey

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

Did everyone see that Wednesday night? Seriously, did you see how Canada completely dismantled a very talented group of Russian hockey players? At some point during Canada's 7-3 win, did you ever think what the score would have been against Team USA if the Canadians played with the same mix of ...

Canadian Pie

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

In the movie "Being John Malkovich," ordinary people enter a portal that brings them inside John Malkovich's brain. The other night, I entered a similar portal that brought me inside the brain of a Canadian after USA's 5-3 hockey victory. The following song is a result of that journey. (Remember, if ...

Hey Canada, How Does That Feel?

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

While the United States continues to dominate the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, everyone paused yesterday so the host nation could play a little hockey against its neighbor to the south. It was lovely of the Canadians to allow the Americans on the ice and show us how to play ...
