Basic Guide to Quadding In The Mountains

Are you a City person? A gentleman farmer? Or are you an all-out outdoors enthusiast like me? It doesn’t really matter as if you share a passion for the outdoors, being in the fresh air, have a sense of exploration and have respect and admiration for Nature, it puts us all in the same boat, so-to speak. Now if you’re into bogging in the mud and racing down forestry trails, you’re pushing it too far for my liking but to each their own. As long as all respect nature and pick up after themselves. I’ve always said to leave wherever you went in nature the way you found it, or even in better shape by picking up others’ garbage and dangerous goods.

Little Things Exposing Fake Hockey Fans

Have you noticed that since the arrival of Social Media, everyone is an expert on everything? What kind of question is that? Of course you have. I mean, you have seen that many instantly became experts on pandemics and knew everything about COVID-19 and that, in spite of scientists and doctors admitting themselves that they knew very little about it. Then, they knew everything on mass shootings and guns, supporting Justin Trudeau in his ban although true experts warned loud and clear that it’s a smoke screen and that abiding gun owners in Canada are the most responsible of all. Now, everyone on Social Media is an expert on Policing. They know not only what their job entails and the dangers they go though, but they also know how to react in stressful, volatile and dangerous situations and that, without a single day of training. They’re so good… Experts, experts everywhere! NOT!

Estimated 75% of NHL Players Don’t Want to Play

It seems like many people in and out of the NHL are counting their chicken before they hatch when it comes to taking for granted that there will be a season starting in July. Not so fast folks. Throughout all of this nonsense, there appears to be a few voices of reason who are starting to voice their opinion and question the way the NHL is going about it and that’s a good thing. You see, we’re not talking about the flu here, but COVID-19, a deadly pandemic which has no vaccine yet. While the odds of death amongst healthy athletes are somewhat minimal, fact is that nobody knows the long term effects this virus has on anyone who contracts it.

4 Years Later: THE Trade Revisited

June 2016… a few days after the NHL Draft, a date when many of the NHL’s trades usually occur. Yet, there was a 20 minutes span that shocked the hockey world. While everyone was wondering if Steven Stamkos would sign with the Leafs or stay put in Tampa Bay, four other teams sent shockwaves throughout the league. First, reports came out of Edmonton to the effect that the Oilers had traded former first overall pick Taylor Hall to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for defenseman Adam Larsson. Minutes later, Sportsnet insider Nick Kypreos shocked the Twitter world by announcing that the Canadiens had traded P.K. Subban for Shea Weber. Not to be outdone, TSN insider Bob McKenzie soon after announced that Stamkos would stay with the Lightning.

The NHL Draft Lottery Joke

Joke. Farce. Absurd. Stupid. Dumb. Senseless. Mind boggling. There are tons of qualifying available to describe the NHL these days and they aren’t doing anything to get rid of those well earned titles. As if putting their players’ health in jeopardy wasn’t enough, the league held part one of their lottery draft and proved without the shadow of a doubt that they have no clue what they’re doing… or that they don’t care about common sense. And hockey experts, while careful with the words they’re choosing, are all in agreement: the league makes no sense whatsoever.

Players You Liked on Teams You Don’t Like: Blasphemy!

As the NHL continues with their nonsense of wanting to play hockey this summer in spite of players being infected by COVID-19 and the United States far from having a handle on the pandemic, hockey fans have been chomping at the bit for quite some time now. Let’s face it: one of the year’s top times for trades, the NHL Draft, which was supposed to be held in Montreal, has been postponed. This time of year is usually exciting for fans as free agents would normally be talking to teams right now in preparation to signing new contracts by July first, which isn’t and won’t be the case. As there are more question marks than answers, fans are starving for NHL news and rumours and their frustration is growing. We can’t even make fun of the Toronto Maple Leafs for failing to live up to expectations once more!

By Not Saying Much, Geoff Molson Said a Lot

Ah Montreal, never change. Fans will be fans, reporters, journalists and sensationalists will continue in their own paths, and not even a pandemic like COVID-19 will change that. You see, to some, nothing is bigger than the Montreal Canadiens. Some even go as far as saying that it’s a religion and call the team the ‘Sainte-Flanelle’. Doesn’t it seem sometimes that some comments directed towards Canadiens’ General Manager Marc Bergevin or other hockey public figures are way over the top, as if they had done something to them personally, maliciously? Doesn’t it seem sometimes like people have nothing better to think about or do than be ticked off at anything and everything about the Habs or hockey in general? Oh I get it, it’s a passion. Let’s face it though: we’re all passionate about it.
