There are a lot of important sporting events happening this morning. Before we begin, did you see this weird Madden glitch catch on Friday? Maple NFL is so crazy.
Here's what's on the menu:
1) Wimbledon Final: 5 AM PST. TSN, ESPN
Canada's Milos Raonic vs Scotland's Andy Murray: The UK
Before we get into sports, I just wanted to quickly vent.
Today is day three of the Summer boot camp classes that I'm teaching at an educational center. It has been an aggravating shit show so far. Here are some things that have rubbed me the wrong way:
A) Prior to
Sorry for the interruption buddies, but, I would like to wish all you mother Canuckers out there a Happy Canada Day!
Please rise for Canada's official national anthem.
Here's a quick history lesson of how Canada came about:
After numerous drunken conferences--our Fathers of Confederation loved to get hammered so much that Sir
This is an actual headline from globeandmail.com, Canada's "national" newspaper, in case you wanted to know why our soccer team doesn't feel like succeeding anytime soon. It's actually not a bad article, and makes some valid points about why the teams involved could make this game punishingly unwatchable. But it's
I have Wednesday off and my wife generously bought me a couple of bottles of Hungarian wine to watch the Hungary/Portugal match. Hungary actually makes pretty good wine. They're known more for their dessert wine, but, their regular wine is also quite nice. Now that I know Hungary has

I'm going to let you in on a hidden talent I have-- I can correctly identify all the flags of the world. The origins of this talent began in grade 3 when I signed out a book that had every flag in the world (at that time) and a paragraph
OK, fair warning....
As any of you who read my Brasil preview already knows, I don't know squat about Brasil footy. As god is my witness, I know even less about Ukraine footy. Now I know that sounds impossible, but I swear it's true. The good news is that this time
Oh shit, I better get started on the Euro posts I said I might do. Let's see when the first match is… this afternoon? And Romania's playing in the opener? Well I better get this done now!
For the geographically lacking folks/everyone who gets confused by all the eastern European countries, Romania
