– Toronto FC is set to announce their newest Canadian signing tomorrow, Men’s National Team keeper Greg Sutton. Sutton comes to Toronto from the Montreal Impact, where he’s built enough of a reputation that numerous MLS teams were seeking his signature this off-season. He also has MLS experience, having played for the Chicago Fire early […]

That’s what Wednesday’s announcement that Greg Zaun was returning to the Jays amounted to, but I’m sure if we could get deep into J.P. Ricciardi’s mind we’d find something more akin to “oh how close I came to getting burned”. J.P. played a dangerous love triangle between himself, Zaun and Rod Barajas. All indications early […]

Here’s that amazing Saha goal I was telling you about : I hadn’t noticed the two amazing long passes that set up Saha, on his own, in front of two Chelsea defenders. Check the replays: there was no way to better defend him – he was just going to score.

Rex Grossman is standing in Chicago’s way to a Super Bowl. Although Trent Dilfer and Brad Johnson proved to everyone that you don’t need a superstar quarterback to win the Big One, Rex Grossman doesn’t fall within this category. Those two guys were great examples of quarterbacks that won’t lose you a game. They just […]

Pop quiz hotshot: what do you do when you get an extra $20 million in payroll, only have 3 starting pitchers locked up, no catchers, no 2nd baseman, you’re almost certain to lose your franchise player to either free agency in one year or trade this year, you have no catchers, a thin bullpen and […]

It was with great anticipation that I sat down to watch yesterday’s titanic clash between the best two clubs in Britain: Manchester United (34 pts) and Chelsea FC (31 pts). Not only was it going to be Chelsea’s shot at climbing atop Manchester United’s perch, but I would also get to see one of my […]

The Pimple: Joey Harrington, Dolphins QB

This will come as a shock to Bruce Mr. Turk, the man who, cursed with my friendship, has to sit there and take all my quirks. Why shock? Well, from the moment the Dolphins signed Joey Harrington yesterday, I adopted a Parcells-esque manner in which to deal with this development, namely by refusing to utter […]

Read Part One here… Before I continue with the conclusion to my little road trip story I’d like to mention that the trip has, like all good road trips, cast its hue on the everyday lives of those who took part. Last week a good friend of mine, Serge the Psycho, got some unwelcome news: […]

In honour of Axl showing up in Ottawa and rocking out (according to the Ottawa Citizen), here is a review of Appetite for Destruction I wrote a few years ago. Appetite For Destruction We knew we were listening to something…different. My friends and I (average age 11 y/o at the time) were sitting around listening […]
