Lake Effect

Last weekend I was finally able to take advantage of the snowy weather and went skiing and snowboarding for the first time this season.  Now I want to go every weekend and to try out some local hills.

The other day I came across this video by Get Out Niagara.  It is a trailer to an upcoming snowboarding short film called ‘Lake Effect’. The film will be a compilation of the 2010-11 snowboarding season in and around the Great Lakes area of Ontario and New York State.  I can’t wait to see some of the slopes.

OK GO

In 2007, OK Go won a Grammy award for “Best Short Form Music Video”, and YouTube’s “Most Creative Video”.  I think you’ll agree that this band is very creative especially their newest video “This Too Shall Pass” .

Video – USA vs. Finland (fights), Canada vs. Slovakia (dives)

I’m very excited about the possibility of a CANADA vs. USA men’s hockey gold medal final in the 2010 Olympics. For this to happen USA will have to defeat Finland and Canada will have to defeat Slovakia.  I’m very surprised how many of the teams have performed, so rather than predicting who wins and what the score will be, I will predict this:

USA vs. Finland – Prediction: Fights

Canada vs. Slovakia – Prediction: Dives

Why? Because this is exactly what happened the last time these teams faced each other.

Canada vs. Slovakia Dec. 29th 2009 – Dive

Canada vs. Russia 1972, as described by Paul Henderson

Paul Henderson was a talented but unspectacular left winger who was the unlikeliest of heroes. Unlikely heroes have come to define Canadian hockey.  Will there be a hero tonight as Canada takes on Russia at the Olympics?

On September 28th, 1972 Paul Henderson scored a remarkable goal that concluded the comeback victory over a Soviet hockey team that had pushed Canada to the brink of defeat. Of course, none of this was supposed to happen. Team Canada was composed of the NHL’s greatest stars, and were expected to easily defeat ‘the communists’. The success of the Soviets stunned Canadians, who had always unquestioningly believed in their country’s hockey supremacy.  “The goal heard around the world” was scored at 19:26 of the final period.  For a moment the world stood still, and then as the red light flickered behind Vladislav Tretiak, Canadians hearts filled with pride and joy.
