OTTAWA (ODB) — As the beers went down following the Gargoyles 10th consecutive loss there was one unanimous and unavoidable conclusion. The glass in this OCSL season is definitely half-full. How could one not deduce that following a wonderfully exciting 10-8 Wings victory Monday night at Hampton Yards? The Gargs played one of their most […]

OTTAWA (ODB) — For the second time in two games the Ottawa Avnet Gargoyles bats were unable to support a tremendous pitching performance, losing 3-1 to Broadway in an OCSL game Thursday night at Carlington Park. “We’re offensively impotent,” concluded Matthew Stephenson, over a cold one, an hour after the riveting game which left the […]

There’s a bonanza of must-see-sports-tv this weekend. Let’s go down the list that got my attention. Friday: – Roy Halladay toys with the lowly Marlins. This one should be over by the end of the first period of the next item. (TSN, 7 pm) – Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final. We can finally […]

Frozen Vulcan: Piling On The Heat

Ottawa is not being kind to Dany Heatley. Nor should it be. Lola layed it out perfectly in the reader comments from my previous post: He wanted out of Atlanta because he needed a fresh start – he came to a community that has embraced him and his formidable talent. What you’re seeing in the […]

Frozen Vulcan: Quick Hits

There’s enough going on in the NHL to warrant a run-down of thoughts: – Game 7 goes Friday night in Detroit. I haven’t watched a game in its entirety in this series. I won’t be watching one Friday either, since Roy Halladay will be chucking a no-hitter against the Marlins. From what I can tell, […]

The Game Was Great; But It’s Still Loss No. 8 For Gargs

OTTAWA (ODB) — You’ve got to give the Gargoyles credit. Playing with two players called up from the farm, including a longtime foe on the mound, the Gargs went from playing games for the aged to playing a game for the ages. In a pitchers’ dual that wasn’t sorted out until the final frame, the […]

As in the American LeMans Series, four classes of cars participate; two prototypes classes (who go as fast as F1 cars) and two Grand Touring classes (GT classes are modified street cars, like Ferrari F430’s and Porsche 911’s). The slower GT cars create moving obstacles for the prototype cars, which means the drivers must be […]

The Twit: The Weekend That Was

Kind of a hectic weekend, but I did manage to catch a few sporting events: – Roy Halladay is having the season that will define his career. Now if only the rest of the Jays can deliver a playoff spot… – I think if Doc genuinely wants to stay in Toronto as long as they’re […]

Feet of Clay: Greatest Ever

Roger Federer, in my opinion, is the greatest tennis player this planet has ever produced (disclaimer: I have not yet checked out the tennis talent on Mercury or Jupiter). I’m the type of person who makes a conscious effort not to make that claim too quick and in all honesty, I’m still a little reluctant […]
