The Spectacle

November 30th was the second leg between the Montreal Impact and Toronto FC. The game was being played at BMO Field in Toronto, as Montreal hosted the first match of the series. Many broadcasters and insiders were predicting a very tight, but open scoring match. And boy, were they spot on. Not only was history bound to be created after the final whistle of the game, as the first Canadian team to reach the MLS final would be revealed, but we also got a hell of a goal fest spectacle….

Standing Up for What’s Right, or Total Disrespect?

If you haven’t already heard, San Francisco 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, has been causing an enormous amount of chaos with his recent gestures in the sports world. The Super Bowl finalist sat down during the National anthem of a pre-season game, then kneeled during the next one, and to make all of this even worse, he wore socks with policeman depicted as pigs at a practice; all in protest of the racial tensions going on in the United States of America. Now we all know that there is a gun…

Come On, Canada!

  As most of you know, there are currently seven Canadian professional hockey teams in the National Hokey League. The cities having these corresponding teams are Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto for the Eastern division and Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver for the Western Division. This year, for the second time since the 1969-70 NHL season, none of these Canadian teams have managed to make the playoffs, which is quite frustrating and disappointing because hockey is Canada’s sport. The last time that no Canadian team made the playoffs, there were only two…

  Jaromir Jagr has been around for quite a while now in the National Hockey League. He is currently 44 years of age and continues to prove many analysts wrong by constantly performing for his current team the Florida Panthers. Jagr was drafted fifth overall in the first round of the 1990 NHL draft. He was the youngest player to ever play in this hockey league at the age of 18 years old. Obviously, in today’s game, playing at 18 years old isn’t as incredible as when Jagr started, but…

What has Happened to the Canadians?

Sunday, November 1st 2015, the Montreal Canadians were firmly in control of the league having won 11 games out of 13, accumulating 22 points out of a possible 26 in the process. The team was on fire, all the forwards were contributing enormously averaging at least three goals per game. The defence was extremely solid, only conceding more than three goals three times in those 13 games. Let’s not forget about their amazing goaltenders in Carey Price and the newly admired Mike Condon. These two were simply stopping anything that…
