Snark break...

As you were hanging out with your mysterious cousin ... Willie Gardener was LeBron before there was a LeBron ...

Apparently, Chris Paul is Basketball Jesus ...

Doubt Paul's Messianic qualities all you want. Why else would he say he watches NBA League Pass, "religiously?"

It's past the point where one even gets angry to see Tim Raines lumped in with the Steroid Era ballplayers for doing cocaine in the '80s. Raines had trouble with the nose candy and came clean, so let it go.

The Montreal Canadiens — the CH is for "cratering Habs" — are giving Alex Kovalev some time off. It's no big deal. Kovalev usually takes off about 25 games a season.

Jesse Lumsden signed with the Edmonton Eskimos. As if Alberta's health-care system isn't under enough strain.

Male tennis players are a little too friendly with each other.

Owen Wilson might play a ballplayer in an upcoming movie. It's a Reese Witherspoon RomCom, so you've been warned well in advance.

The Calgary Hitmen junior hockey team might have gone a little heavy on the honey
shots in this commercial. It's a good-looking town, but this isn't doing much for Edmonton's inferiority complex (don't worry, Edmonton, you're unique and have a great personality).

This post was worth nothing, but this is worth noting
  • The Kingston Voyageurs have advanced to the second round of the playoffs. So that is possible for a Kingston junior hockey team.

    The Frontenacs' Ethan Werek is up to 24th in the International Scouting Service's rankings for the NHL draft. Yes, this typist tends to beejo Ethan Werek. Incidentally, The Hockey News' hot list includes a player from the Indiana Ice, the team Werek supposedly left because the calibre of hockey was not good enough.
  • Best of luck to K-Towner and former Queen's Golden Gael Matt Kirk. The CFL D-lineman has signed with Radoslav's beloved Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Sighhhh....and those are the ugly ones in Calgary
Can you imagine what we have up here in Edmonton.
I guess the only consolation is the ones of up here aren't fixed up with plastic
