I’m going to be honest from the very start, I did not watch very much of this year’s NBA finals. I could barely watch five minutes of it without feeling the urge to blow chunks. This season, ripe off a very bitter lockout, the finals came together with what I could clearly say was the […]

There is a large court battle brewing between the NFL and its players. Usually when you hear something like this, one would assume it’s another possible labour stoppage over money and revenue. Not this time people, this one is a massive civil suit being filed against the league by players who are suffering from brain […]

We have learned over the years that there are good sequels, and very bad sequels. Men in Black was a great movie, but MIB2 was a royal stinker. I’m pleased to report that MIB3 is the sequel that makes up for the second film. It’s so good that, when I saw it, the audience applauded as […]

There’s been a lot of rumbling going on in baseball lately. Players have really been losing their cool around umpires over some pretty questionable calls. This is baseball, and with human officials comes human error- I know this to be the case more than most people because for almost half a decade, before I left […]

While most of the movies made by Tim Burton are pretty fun, even he is capable of making a dud every now and then (while many disagree with me, I was never very fond of his version of Alice In Wonderland). Burton’s version of Dark Shadows , on the other hand, reminded me of one of […]

Being a professional athlete is a dream that most children aspire to, and I’ll be the first to admit that I was no different. I grew up watching athletes do amazing things, but I was too naïve to understand that, like in every other job, being an athlete has its good days and its bad days. […]

A few years ago when I checked out Bobcat Goldthwait’s last movie, a dark comedy called World’s Greatest Dad (which starred Robin Williams), I was impressed with the vision of Bobcat as a director. I remember thinking when I finished watching that movie that I would not hesitate to watch the next film he brought […]

Like many lifelong football fans, I was saddened to hear about that passing of Junior Seau. TMZ first reported and confirmed the passing of the iconic linebacker, victim of what appears to be a self inflicted gun shot to the chest. Everyone associated with football and fans of all teams were saddened by the news, […]

For fans of Sherlock who do not subscribe to any BBC specialty channels, this Sunday has been a very, very long wait. Series two of the amazing modern update of Sir Conan Authur Doyle’s sleuth returns to PBS Masterpiece Theatre on Sunday May 6th, and the public channel will air the three 90 minute episodes […]

It’s finally here, that big colossal movie that brings all the heroes from the past half a dozen Marvel films together for one epic motion picture. This is the project Marvel fans have been dying to see come to light ever since Samuel L. Jackson made his first cameo in the original Iron Man. When […]

Here we have two General Managers: Bryan Colangelo for the Toronto Raptors and Brian Burke of the Toronto Maple Leafs. Both GMs are going to be pressured to make a big splash in the off season to push their respective teams closer to being a contender rather than the pretenders they’ve been for the past […]

Steroid apologists can try to make as many excuses as they want, but they cannot deny the truth: players who used illegal drugs to cheat should be denied entry into the baseball hall of fame. The writers who have voted thus far have been united with this notion as huge superstars marred with steroids such […]

When I was in high school, I remember a horrific incident that occurred during a game of soccer. Our goal keeper had strayed from his zone to grab a loose ball, and collided into an offensive player that was racing him to the same ball and was trying to score. During that collision, he took […]

I was nine years old when I saw my first Blue Jay game. It was against the Baltimore Orioles and I only really remember three things about that game: the Jays lost, I never caught a foul ball and Lloyd Moseby stole third base. I also remember it was very cold that day, which was […]

In the opinion of many people who know hockey, there isn’t a shadow of a doubt: Sidney Crosby is the best player in the NHL. Yet as long as there’s an instigator rule, you might as well put a bullseye on Sidney’s back rather than the number eighty-seven. Without anyone on the ice to physically […]

According to CBS, being #1 isn’t good enough to warrant a renewal. There have been countless shows that I’ve loved watching that never made it past season one. Memories of watching some of these great shows get the axe way too early is enough to break this viewer’s heart. Some shows are cut off instantly […]

Every where I went, someone was making a big hoopla about the NFL’s new licensing contract with Nike that was going to kick in this year. A lot of my friends were eager to see the new football jerseys which were supposed to look similar to the trim, hard to grab uniforms that Nike had […]
