What follows is a curling scoreboard. Not one of those fancy ones you see at your your Scotties and your Briers and various Grand Slam events. No, this is a plain old standard local curling club scoreboard. Unfortunately, they can no longer have the MacDonald Tobacco logo which graced so

"Most of one's life is one prolonged effort to prevent oneself thinking" - Huxley This may well be the most accurate assessment of my life I have ever come across. It also sums up the divisional playoff game predictions I made last week. Sort of, I guess. I don't want to

"Victory is a fleeting thing in the gambling business. Today's winners are tomorrow's blinking toads, dumb beasts with no hope." - Hunter Thompson Titans and Vikings bettors came out big on the weekend, winning straight up as 5 and 8 point dogs (at least on the spreads at which I'm looking).

Here we are at the precipice of another "new year". As far as the calendar goes, at least. There's nothing new about it. Just as every day past and every day hence we will drift pointlessly and without meaning around some old ball of burning gas until all our friends die

Christmas time. The season of deception and greed and misery. Bah. Humbug! The season for parents who lie to their children. Informing them with a straight face that their gifts are dependent on their behaviour alone. That poor kid down the street? Must have been a bad egg. The rich little

Welcome, fellow humans, to the latest filler episode of Dick Tuesday. The Thursday night game provided most of the entertainment through repeated shots of the Cowboys players and position coaches melting down on the sideline, with much yelling and finger-pointing. Those shots were interspersed with footage of a grim-faced Jason Garrett

This was a difficult one to write. Not because I wasn't prepared, though I wasn’t. Not because I didn’t watch the games, which I did. It was because this was my favourite time of year that isn't a weeklong vacation in the summer with no plans – US thanksgiving. A

I had a long weekend. Not only did I take Monday off as usual for my post-Grey Cup recovery but I also took Friday off for no good reason and thus had no good reason to curtail my enjoyment of the burning dumb-water during Thursday's game. Which is to say I

First off – What the hell is going on in Atlanta? Is Quinn that poor of a defensive play-caller? Is it just that pressure is off and they’re playing loose and free against division teams they’ve played so often they don’t have to think too much? Voodoo? Whatever it is

Coming into this weekend my team was flying high on the adrenaline ride that is an undefeated season. It was 8 pm and I headed to the club for my Friday night novice league curling game. The season had begun promisingly with a three game winning streak and just a

I fell asleep during the Monday night game. It was a bit of a slog, with some brief glimmers of hope for the Giants, who were up 9-3 I think before some cat came running out on the field. In Buffalo they throw pink rubber phalluses onto the field. In New

I don’t know about this past week’s slate of games. I thought it was just a big ol’ heap of trash. Maybe it was the let-down of having a GB vs. KC Sunday night game ruined because the new smugness was out and we only got the old smugness. The worst
