The Rosin Bag: Spring Is In the Air

Ok, well maybe not in Ottawa where it’s currently 2 Celsius, but everywhere I look I see signs of baseball’s return (again, not in Ottawa). The purpose of this post isn’t to offer you my Blue Jays Season Forecast (I won’t go so far as to call it a preview – calling it a forecast […]

Tiger Saves Golf

I am not a fan of golf. In fact, there are many aspects of golf that I find repulsive. If forced to play 18 holes I usually want to go home by the eighth hole and watching it on TV is literally like watching grass grow. That doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate greatness when I […]

The Voyageurs never got to take the field. Out of Left Field details what prompted the team to fold before it ever really took off. That’s too bad, I really intended to spend a considerable chunk of free time at the ballpark this summer. I guess I’ll have to mow the lawn or something.

Zoom Zoom: Australian GP

As I settled in yesterday morning to watch the Australian GP, as that beautiful sound of F1 cars buzzing about reached my ears, as the sights being beamed from Melbourne reached my screen, it dawned on me: F1 is not coming to Montreal this year. It just felt so wrong as that reality began the […]

If Your Life Was A Movie, What Would Be Its Soundtrack?

Don’t usually do these, but the randomness of it appealed to me (yes, I will mix in some music posts on here once in a while). So here’s how it works… 1. Open your library (iTunes, Winamp, Media Player, iPod, etc)2. Put it on shuffle3. Press play4. For the first question, type the song that’s […]

The Twit: Sick As A Dog Edition

Alright, considering it’s been over a week since my last true post, I’ll bring you up to date, Twitter style, on the subjects that caught my attention during that time, in 140 characters or less (I promise to break that last rule a few times). The viewing of the 12 Hours of Sebring was a […]

Hey, just wanted to drop in and say I haven’t renounced my blogging obligations, I’m just recovering from a bout of the flu with a heavy dose of a cold. I’ll be back to catch up on all the events of the past week shortly.

…then make sure you watch this. I found it while reading the Sports and the City blog. This one’s for you, B-Mac and Matty.

Zoom Zoom: 12 Hours To The 12 Hours

After a long, sleepy winter devoid of any racing that fills my needs (sorry NASCAR), automotive excellence returns to my radar tomorrow with the 12 Hours of Sebring. As I wrote earlier, this is the kickoff event to the 2009 American LeMans Series. ALMS is a relative newcomer to the North American sports scene, its […]

Frozen Vulcan: The Pipe Dream Lives On

A few years ago I wrote about the possibility of the Qu├ębec Nordiques coming back to the NHL. It eventually turned out that the rumours were but another tease for fans of the long-maligned franchise. What’s old is news again (French): former players Michel Goulet and Kevin Lowe are getting behind an effort to build […]
