Video- The Vancouver Canucks With An Incredible 3-2 OT Win Over The Toronto Maple Leafs

from Lance Hornby of the Toronto Sun, To twist an old Neil Young song, rust never sleeps. The Vancouver Canucks, three weeks after COVID-19 halted their season, far back in the playoff race and with many of their players still out or ailing, gave the fully charged Maple Leafs all they could handle Sunday night at Rogers Arena. Braden Holtby, who was having a sub-par year before the COVID outbreak, denied the best Leaf shooters much of the night as the Canucks won 3-2 in overtime. ...

Santa Anita: Cezanne shines in Kona Gold Stakes

A day after announcing Concert Tour will miss the Kentucky Derby, trainer Bob Baffert sent out Cezanne for a scintillating victory in the $100,000 Grade III Kona Gold Stakes on Sunday at Santa Anita after nearly nine months on the shelf. Baffert was disappointed with Concert Tour’s third-place finish in the Arkansas Derby on April 10 (“I thought he couldn’t lose”), so now he’s down to Medina Spirit for the Run for the Roses on May 1. “You hate to go into the Derby, when you take a little step ba...

Wood, 4 Relievers Help Giants 3-Hit Marlins In 1-0 Win

MIAMI (AP) — Several firsts by the Giants’ pitching staff added up to a bunch of zeroes for the Marlins. Alex Wood threw five innings in his first start for San Francisco, reliever Camilo Doval made a successful major league debut and Tyler Rogers earned his first save of the year as the Giants beat Miami 1-0 Sunday. The Marlins totaled only three hits against five pitchers, and the Giants averted a series sweep by scoring an unearned run in the third. Wood (1-0), returning from a back problem t...

A reminder about supplies and demands

We Americans are blessed with abundant — even overabundant — consumer goods and services and often take that fact for granted. We assume that when we pull into a service station its pumps will dispense fuel, that when we go to a grocery store, we will find full shelves, or that when we flip the switch on the wall the room will light up. We tend to forget that the goods and services we want or need involve complex supply chains that begin with basic resources, proceed to industrial processes and ...

Ling Cod Meets Largemouth

The earlier Indian Valley expedition got my creative juices flowing. Knowing how fly fishermen view big water with suspicion  – and meeting no like minded anglers in my lake and estuary travels, has lent an element of sadism to my determination to make big water fly friendly. Big water is winning … if you’re keeping score … With physics stacked against us large water tends to be the  Achilles Heel of fly fishing.  Strong winds, deep water, and no visual cues on predator or prey, and no visi...

A look at the midnight ride of Paul Revere on April 18-19

Poetic license Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem “Paul Revere’s Ride” (see below) is based on historic events, but it is more of a tale and not a historical account. Longfellow wrote the poem after taking a tour of Boston in 1860. He was a pacifist and abolitionist who wrote the poem to try and unify a divided nation on course for the Civil War. Historians have dissected the poem since 1860 and compared it to Revere’s account of the ride in his own words and other historic evidence. The National...
