Fraggle Rock: Back To The Rock Showrunners On Honoring Jim Henson's Legacy [Interview]

For people of a certain age, combining the words "Fraggle" and "Rock" together stirs a very certain nostalgic feeling. Jim Henson created an awful lot of memorable stuff in his years on this planet, but the funny little creatures we call Fraggles were certainly one of his most memorable. Now, Apple TV+ has stepped in to bring the beloved Muppets back to life in a new series titled (rather appropriately) "Fraggle Rock: Back to the Rock."Unfortunately, Henson is no longer with us, but it was Alex ...

Things to Do in Golden BC in Winter

I don’t know about you but come winter I need something to look forward to on a regular basis. In the summer, we go away almost every weekend, but somehow in winter we only seem go away every month or so. John and I decided we needed a break and decided to head to Golden BC for a change – and avail ourselves of winter activities both in Golden and in nearby Yoho National Park. Most people I know head for Kicking Horse Mountain Resort but on this trip we were looking for quieter winter activities...

Wapta Falls Hike or Snowshoe in Winter

In the winter a Wapta Falls hike or snowshoe makes for a delightful half day outing. It’s a longer hike in the winter since you basically start from the Trans-Canada Highway, so you must add a few kilometres to reach the summer trailhead. If you’re staying in the Field – Golden corridor, or you have a few hours to spare while you’re driving between Golden and Calgary, I would encourage you to do the hike.  We opted for snowshoes on the Wapta Falls hike but even with as much snow as you see in th...

Mark Giordano Back To Calgary?

from Eric Francis of Sportsnet, As the agent who represents Mark Giordano and Andrew Mangiapane, Ritch Winter said he can absolutely see a scenario in which the former is traded back to the Flames, and will urge the latter to avoid signing a long-term deal with Calgary this summer. Winter’s candid remarks came in a wide-ranging interview on The Eric Francis Show on Monday, when he provided plenty of insight into two hot-button topics involving the future of the popular players. “I...

Hockey Notes On A Sunday Morning

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, - There should be a long lineup of those interested in the general manager’s job with the Anaheim Ducks. Bob Murray is out in Anaheim, but he left behind a stacked roster of players 23-and-under that few NHL teams can match. Among them: Troy Terry, Trevor Zegras and teenaged defenceman Jamie Drysdale. - The best NHL player nobody seems to pay attention to — Jesper Bratt of the New Jersey Devils. He’s one point ahead of Brad Marchand in scoring an...

Mark Giordano Leads Kraken Over Flames

from Eric Francs of Sportsnet, Unable to catch up with any of his former Flames teammates before the game, Mark Giordano made sure they saw plenty of him once the contest started. They saw him in the corners, after the whistle and, of course, on the scoresheet where the Calgary-turned-Seattle captain marked his first game against his former mates with a goal and two assists on Thursday. “It felt good, I’m not going to lie,” said Giordano of his game-opening goal during a first int...

All Bill Daly

from Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic, In his first media interview since those meetings, NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly chatted with The Athletic Thursday afternoon around 3 p.m. ET. I feel the need to point that out, given how quickly things have been moving — and we covered a lot of ground in a 20-minute chat. So much has happened since we last saw each other in Florida at the Board of Governors. How would you describe the last three weeks? Yeah, it’s been quite the storm, for ...

Playing Darryl Sutter’s Way

from Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic, The Calgary Flames are the stingiest team in the NHL as we approach U.S. Thanksgiving, but it isn’t terribly surprising. Darryl Sutter hockey, an updated version, is in full force with the Flames through the opening six weeks of the NHL season, Calgary allowing just 1.89 goals per game. They’ve also had seven shutouts this season. Crazy. It’s not just the excellent goaltending of starter Jacob Markstrom (.942 SP in 14 games) and backup Dan Vlada...

Factors that Influence Currency Exchange

It can be frustrating sometimes to think you will get a certain rate, only to learn that the rate is different. You can watch the rates ahead of time at sites such as, or visit the centers yourself. The entire process is fascinating, and curious as well. Why do currency rates fluctuate so much? Currency is like any other market. It has a supply and demand rate attache...

Johnny Gaudreau Has Been Great

from Eric Francis of Sportsnet, Sitting seventh in NHL scoring as the catalyst of one of the league’s most prolific trios, he’s back to being one of the world’s most electrifying playmakers. What few saw coming was that he’s also quietly gone about incorporating a defensive responsibility into his game that has him leading the league in a stat few would ever have associated with him. Gaudreau is one of just two players with over 100 minutes of ice time that has yet to be scored on...

NHL Short Notes

* Connor McDavid found the score sheet to extend his season-opening point streak to 16 games, doing so again in highlight-reel fashion. * Andrew Mangiapane is producing at a goal-per-game pace on the road for the Flames this season and helped propel Calgary to victory in a high-scoring affair Thursday. * Florida secured another win at FLA Live Arena and now sits two games shy of the longest season-opening home win streak in NHL history.  Continue reading "NHL Short Notes"

Happy New Year from the Reese Family!

 Hi. Ideally, this would have been the annual Reese Family Christmas Letter. But, like everything else in 2020, those plans went up in flames like a fire in the dumpster behind Denny’s. Then I thought, “That’s okay, I’ll just make it a ‘Happy New Year’ letter.” At least I finished it by January 21st, National Squirrel Appreciation Day. (Nope, not making that up.)

NCAA Men’s Freshmen to Watch

Josh Doan | Photo by Dave Reginek/Getty Images To this point in the men’s college hockey season, it has been fairly quiet in terms of newcomers making a major impact on the scoresheet. Just three rookies rank among the top-40 nationally in scoring. Perhaps that isn’t a major surprise. We’re just over a month into the season and it can be difficult for young freshman to make an immediate impact against older competition this early in normal times, let alone this year, which ha...

The New Members Of The Hockey Hall Of Fame

from the CP at TSN, Kevin Lowe waited 19 years for the call. Doug Wilson's phone sat silent longer still — 24 consecutive springs of eligibility before it finally rang. So another 365 days for the Hockey Hall of Fame's pandemic-delayed class of 2020 was probably no big deal, right?" "Not at all," Lowe said with a laugh Friday. "We got to relish the moment even longer." Lowe and Wilson are joined in the 2020 player category by  and  — elected in their first years of...
