Top 10 NHL Jerseys Discussion Nourishes ‘Social Closeness-ing’

Social distancing, huh? That’s a good one… and nothing new. As a young boy and teenager, our family lost our dad and my sister. Then, in the blink of an eye, the rest of my brothers and sisters were out of the house, doing grown-up things. I also said goodbye to friends who moved away. But on the fortunate side, I developed life-long friends who I consider brothers and sisters to this day. And here I sit in Hawaii (6,000 miles away from where I grew up in Marlboro, Mass., my very own socia...

Could Oilers Go From “Shafted” to Unlikely No. 1 Draft Pick Winners?

Oh how things can change in a matter of 48 hours. A couple of days ago, I argued the Edmonton Oilers were getting shafted based on the proposed format of the 24-team play-in format that would see the NHL finalize the 16 teams able to compete for the 2020 Stanley Cup. The idea that Edmonton had earned their spot in the official playoff picture based on their consistent success over the course of an almost-completed NHL season, but were potentially going to have to play a team like the Chicago...

Danger Zone: Federal Moto’s Kawasaki GPz1100

The year is 1986, and Tom Cruise is playing Maverick in Top Gun—flying an F-14 Tomcat by day and tearing around on a Kawasaki GPZ900R by night. If you fell in love with that film and the bike ridden by its motorcycle-mad star, you’re not alone. “We all know that movie,” says Michael Muller of Federal Moto. “And we always knew that when Federal Moto built its first custom sportbike, we’d need the beefiest bad boy of the 80s: the GPz1100.” The GPz1100 was the older, bigger brother of the Ni...

Here are excerpts from the lengthy piece: The absence of people during the coronavirus pandemic has produced a rare payoff in Fargo and most American cities — a steep drop in major crimes.  “The dynamics of street crimes, of street encounters, of human behavior are changing because people are staying home,” s...
