    Picture Of The Day: What Are You Looking At?

    Most men will tell you that they have never watch figure skating.  They would also be quick to say that the men who do take part in this sport are sissies and likely prefer the company of men, rather than the women they toss and turn as they dance around the ice. However, I think […]

    Let The Search Begin For Sidney Crosby’s Equipment

    If you happen to be browsing eBay, don’t be surprised to see a pair of gloves and stick belonging to Sidney Crosby on there.  That is likely the next place they will end up after being reported missing following Canada’s gold medal victory over the United States in men’s hockey on Sunday.

    Let The Celebrating Begin! Canada Wins Men’s Hockey Gold!

    It is no secret that Canadians love their hockey.  Even the Phoenix Suns’ Steve Nash can’t get enough of it.  So when the Men’s Hockey Team completed Canada’s domination of the top of the medal podium at the 2010 Olympic Games by taking home the gold medal following an overtime winner by newly anointed national […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 2/28/10 – Team Canada Hockey

    As a Blackhawks fan, my initial feeling was to give this honor to Jonathan Toews.  That first goal was perfectly hit and he has done everything in this tournament besides scoring a goal of his own.  Then I thought, wait a minute, Sidney Crosby scored THE goal in overtime to win a gold medal in […]

    The dangers of hockey are no secret to those familiar with the game.  So even with the Olympics being touted as a showcase of some of the most skilled players from around the world, it should not have surprised many to see what occurred last night in Vancouver during a game between Slovakia and Norway.

    Picture Of The Day: Canadians Send Strong Message To The World

    Coming into the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver, Canadians had high expectations for their “own the podium program.”  Unfortunately, the podium has not quite been owned by the home nation, causing some to state that Canada has not been able to “find the podium,” or perhaps they have “rented out the podium to the Americans.” […]

    Madeleine Dupont Loses Match & Tears After Canadian Cheers

    Any sport in the Olympics can get heated – even curling.  Curling, which is a mix of boule and shuffleboard on ice, is one of the Olympic sports many people may not actually think is a sport, but intrigues me the most.  I’ve spent my fair share of time on the shuffleboard table and I […]

    We have shown you some of the ugliest helmets in sports before.  Now we are here to show you the creepiest.  It belongs to Slovenian skier Tina Maze, and it is quite simple, yet perplexing all at once. It is enough to make you ask, “What are you looking at?” The two eyes painted on […]

    Ovechkin’s Hit on Jagr Sets Tone In Russian Victory

    Being physical is nothing new when it comes to Alex Ovechkin‘s style of play on the ice, but we have mentioned before that the energetic superstar does seem to show that much more pride when he is playing for his country.  During yesterday afternoon’s final round robin game against the Czech Republic, that sense of […]

    Colbert Shows Off His Table Hockey Skills Against the Russians

    If there is one thing you can bank on, it is that no matter what Stephen Colbert is doing, he can make it entertaining.  After all, table hockey is not exactly fun to watch, but when it involves Colbert yelling things like “someone sabotaged my knob” and “this is payback for Rocky IV” at his […]

    Too soon for this Olympic Luge Advertisement?

    We can’t help but ask what The Globe and Mail was thinking when they decided to run this advertisement in Tuesday’s edition of the popular Canadian newspaper.  Too soon?  One would have to think so, and if that wasn’t enough, it should also be noted that the ad ran adjacent to an article titled “Games […]

    Imagine If Biathlon Was Like This?

    As sports fans, we are always looking for ways to improve various competitions.  For example, they could insert piranhas into the pool during swimming races, or use a flaming pole during high jump events.  As for biathlon, this idea may be a little over the edge, but it sure as hell would make things that […]
