Snark Break...

As you and your (former) best friend had to be pulled apart while after an argument over the world's greatest marathoners got out of hand.

How did that Barack Obama sign end up in the yard of the Alaska governor's mention?

Figure skating meets will have fewer judges. This is a positive step toward no figure skating at all.

Saying "some of the color and personality has been removed from the sport" with regard to NASCAR is wrong on two counts. It has few people of colour, and it's not a sport. Please give some thought to why the drivers in NASCAR can act like buffoons and it's all part of the show, while no one would stand for it in other big American ball-and-stick games.

In all seriousness ... far be it to question what it says about us that many, present company included, can't find the outrage that there should be over the Mike Danton/David Frost story. It's such a sick story and one can only imagine what it's like for the principals, including some people in the Napanee area, to keep retelling the stories that are now more than a decade old. Where would the harm be if Danton was brought home to serve his sentence in a Canadian jail?

This post is worth nothing, but this is worth noting

  • The Big Lead has posted its preview of the Raptors.
  • There's no way of confirming or debunking this gut feeling, but the Kingston Frontenacs might lead the OHL in the most goals allowed in the final minute of a period. They had one last night in Saginaw (7-3 loss) and one against Oshawa last Sunday. By unofficial count, the Fronts are 0 for their last 19 power plays.
  • It's irony on a base level that a list of the most subversive comedians of all time could leave out Richard Pryor and Bill Hicks.
