Now a few words about DAZN and all its inroads into Canada

I was going to talk about this last week, but since DAZN aired the Canelo Alvarez fight last night (in which he beat up on Rocky Fielding at MSG), I think it’s still timely to talk about the inroads this European company has made into Canada lately, with all the sports rights they are picking…

Chaos in the UK as Theresa May fights (successfully) to keep her job

I have wasted my day following the drama in the United Kingdom as Tory backbench dissidents have forced a confidence vote on Prime Minister Theresa May’s leadership, soon after she pulled a vote on the Brexit deal that was scheduled for this week. What chaos over there. The vote has been going on as we…

Big winter storm whacking North Carolina and Virginia!

How do you like winter storm season? If you are travelling, you probably don’t like it very much. Here is a Weather Channel story on their self-titled “Winter Storm Diego” which is mainly whacking North Carolina and Virginia. Other states are impacted as well with snow, heavy rains and floods. From my vantage point here…

It’s official: at long last Seattle is joining the NHL in 2021!

It was confirmed today: the 32nd NHL expansion franchise goes to Seattle. At long last, the home of Boeing, Microsoft, Starbucks and grunge music is home to the NHL. Great news for a city with a good hockey history and fan base (WHL), and it is a place I’ve been to multiple times as well….

The news is that former Pres. George H.W. Bush is dead at 94

The news broke last night that George H.W. Bush, 41st President of the United States has died at age 94. The story from Fox News here. Also, this from the New York Times on his final days. Also, here’s a piece about Bush’s time at the CIA, which I found interesting. New York Stock Exchange…

7.0 Earthquake hits Anchorage, Alaska!

Scary times in Anchorage today, looks like there’s lots of damage from today’s 7.0 earthquake. The tsunami warnings have been cancelled, but lots of power outages still reported. Tweet from Sarah Palin: 🙏🏼 for Alaska. Our family is intact – house is not… I imagine that’s the case for many, many others. So thankful to…

As a comic book geek of long standing, I was saddened to hear that Marvel Comics legendary co-creator Stan Lee has passed away at age 95. In memory of and and in honor of Stan Lee, here below is a montage of all his cameo movie appearances. RIP.

Who cares about Trump! Fires burning out of control around Malibu

I do not want to see any more news coverage of crazy Donald Trump today. Instead, I want to see real news coverage about these horrible fires raging around Malibu and environs! This is terrible! I was transfixed watching the live coverage from LA this afternoon about these wildfires. The entire city of Malibu is…

Bad News Roundup: Thousand Oaks shootings tops the list

Well, folks, today was a bad “News” day for a lot of reasons. The top bad news of the day: the mass shooting at a bar in Thousand Oaks, California overnight that left 12 people dead. The second piece of bad news: the angry mob attacks outside the home of Tucker Carlson. Third piece of…

Oh, brother. One day after the election, Trump eats the press!

What a display today, folks. Just one day after the GOP lost the House to the Democrats in the midterms, a diminished-looking Pres. Donald Trump, supposedly the leader of the free world, once again acted like some third-rate hick town politician by giving a dressing down to CNN’s Jim Acosta at a wild news conference…

Instant analysis of the midterm election results

Just a few thoughts on the results so far: Been watching a lot of “theblaze” election coverage tonight on YouTube (Glenn Beck and his folks) and I agree with what their pundits are saying which is: after all of what the Democrats, the media, the Hollywood crowd, and everyone else threw at Trump and the…

Trump’s final rally of the election is on in Cape Girardeau

I am currently watching Pres. Donald Trump at his last rally of the campaign in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, and they have pulled out all the stops tonight. They brought out Lee Greenwood to sing “God Bless the USA”, they brought out home town hero Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity, and Judge Jeanine Pirro, and Ivanka…

Trump is making enemies out of lots of non-Americans in this election!

I have been spending the last few days getting caught up on all the attack ads going on in this US election, not to mention all of Donald Trump’s crazy rallies which are littering YouTube as usual. Honestly, this American off-year election has been depressing. What bothers me the most is all the vitriol being…

The last word on Megyn Kelly’s abysmal NBC flame-out

I really don’t have a lot to say about Megyn Kelly and her big NBC implosion over her “blackface” Halloween comments on-air last week that got her ejected from her show. It was exactly the sort of inappropriate comment you could see Kelly making sooner or later; she really does tend to push the politically-incorrect…

A day of pipe bomb near-mayhem in the USA

I don’t call the place the Upset States for nothing. Pipe bombs sent today to Ex-Pres. Obama, the Clintons, George Soros, CNN, etc. There is just too much hate in the ‘States these days. Lock the perpetrator up! America right now. Playing out live on @CNN pic.twitter.com/aCRGG4xoW2 — Don Lemon (@donlemon) October 24, 2018 Needless…

Now, the final word on Toronto, and Brampton’s, crazy election night

As expected, yesterday’s municipal election results produced plenty of drama, with some shocking defeats of longtime and well known council incumbents. Joe Mihevc. Norm Kelly. Giorgio Mammoliti! But the biggest upset was right next door in the city of Brampton where Patrick Brown was elected mayor. Wow. After all of Brown’s personal chaos and controversy,…

Halloween comes early to the box office! $77.5 million!!

The one thing I notice about October at the box office is that it is usually always a good month for horror movies. This was a very big opening weekend for Halloween. This latest reboot of the original starring Jamie Lee Curtis opened to a big domestic haul of $77.5 million. This is the second…

Khabib and McGregor: suspended!!

It’s official, the Nevada State Athletic Commission has officially suspended the two idiots, ahem, I mean combatants from the main event of UFC 229 because of that WWE-worthy brawl that ensued when Khabib left the ring. What a farce. Maybe Dana White should suspend these two permanently from the UFC, because what went down on…

What a mess Michael has made in the Florida panhandle

Yikes, folks, I have been catching up on some of the Michael hurricane damage reports out of Florida today and it sounds like the Florida panhandle really got whacked. Honestly, I did not expect this storm to get as strong as it did. I thought maybe it would only be a category 2 or 3,…

Here we go again, another hurricane! Michael bears down on the panhandle

Well, great. Columbus Day is now “get the heck out of here” Day in the Florida panhandle as Michael is now at hurricane strength and headed straight their way. It should hit by midweek. I am spending my day off enjoying Tallahassee’s news streaming of the approaching big storm, in between commercial breaks of live…

All heck breaks loose at UFC 229!!!

Khabib vs McGregor is on!! Most anticipated UFC fight ever

This is it! The champion Khabib Nurmagomedov takes on No. 1 Conor McGregor for the UFC lightweight title tonight at UFC 229 in Las Vegas! This should be something else, simply because McGregor is involved and he’s a wild man. The pay-per-view is on right now as we speak, but the cheapskates out there who…
