Will Canadians Watch The Stanley Cup Final?

from Michael Traikos of the National Post, Whoever ends up winning the Stanley Cup, which begins on Saturday between the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Dallas Stars, will not have an asterisk attached to their name. Although maybe they should, based on everything they went through and how hard it was to get to this point. Of course the hardest part is still to come: Convincing Canadians to care about a final played between two southern U.S. teams that don’t have a pre-packaged star playe...

"When Christopher Columbus encountered a severe storm while returning from America, he is said to have written on parchment what he had found in the New World..."

"... and requested it be forwarded to King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, enclosed the parchment in a waxed cloth and placed it into a large wooden barrel to be cast into the sea. The communication was never found."From "Message in a Bottle," a Wikipedia article. Lots more message-in-a-bottle stories at that link. Examples:In December 1928, a trapper working at the mouth of the Agawa River, Ontario, found a bottled note from Alice Bettridge, an assistant stewardess in her early twenties who initi...

Cardinal Tobin Doesn’t Help When He Criticizes Voting for Donald Trump

Newark’s Cardinal Tobin has said that it is more problematic to vote for Donald Trump than for Joe Biden. With all due respect, I don’t know that he should be making that call in either direction. The bishops’ role is to inform consciences. He seems to think we are beyond “single issue” voting. Unfortunately, I think he buys into some cultural lies in his implication. By single issue, we, of course, know he means abortion. But here’s the thing: Abortion has never been a single issue. The riots i...

Non-traditional polling sites are popping up across the US in a scramble to help voters safely cast their ballots in person

Early voters cast their ballots at the Frank P. Zeidler Municipal Building on Wednesday March 18, 2020, in Milwaukee AP Photo/Morry Gash The coronavirus pandemic has brought on a number of challenges for in-person voting in the US such as absent poll workers, long lines, and scaled-back voter registration drives.

8 Blue Jackets All-Time Points-Per-Game Leaders

To win in today’s NHL, a team needs to score goals. Not only does a team need players who shoot, it needs the playmakers who get the puck to the shooter. Consider this: in the modern history of the NHL, only twice has a player scored three goals in a game without any assists on those goals. One of those unassisted hat tricks was by the legendary Maurice “Rocket” Richard, after whom the league’s annual goal-scoring trophy is named. The other was by then-Columbus Blue Jacket Rick Nash. In the b...

Racism And The Plagues of Egypt – Coronavirus And Racism: America’s Two Pandemics

Introduction The fight against anti-Blackness has once again hit the global stage, and American Muslims have a central role to play in the movement of racial justice. The spiritual history of America is a history of Black Muslim voices. Mansa Abubakari, a West African King, landed in South America almost 200 years before Columbus began the massacre of the indigenous population.[1] The biggest migration of Muslims to America was the slave ships where scholars fought to teach Islam to their ensla...

Sacramento’s misguided attacks on single-family housing

“Honest question,” a housing activist wrote to me on Twitter, “since you mention the ‘impacts to all’ of housing policy, what do you say to someone who wants to live in Pasadena but can’t afford $875K to live here (or $3K/month in rent)?” The topic of discussion was Senate Bill 1120, a housing bill that was awaiting a vote in the Assembly while the clock ticked toward the constitutionally mandated deadline for the end of the legislative session on Aug. 31. SB1120 was controversial. As the phones...

3 Ottawa Senators Who Were One-Hit Wonders

When players show massive improvement over the course of one season and produce like they never had before, the signs usually point to a breakthrough in their development. However, sometimes the career-high season merely represents a flash in the pan, and the fire dissipates soon after. In the case of the Ottawa Senators, a handful of players share these traits. Three Senators come to mind, who after making a name for themselves after one season, never reached the same level of play again. ...

Maple Leafs Are Right to Explore Life After Andersen

Following last week’s blockbuster trade that saw Kasperi Kapanen shipped off to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for a bunch of goodies, it’s clear that the Toronto Maple Leafs are officially open for business. And after an unceremonious qualifying-round loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets, it’s no surprise that general manager Kyle Dubas is looking to shake things up. What may come as a surprise, though, are some of the names being shopped, with goaltender Frederik Andersen headlining a notewo...

Jordan Morris scores twice, Sounders return home and top LAFC

SEATTLE (AP) — Jordan Morris scored two goals less than a minute apart early in the second half, and Seattle rolled past Los Angeles FC 3-1 on Sunday night in the Sounders first home match in 5½ months. Playing in an eerily empty CenturyLink Field, Morris scored 59 seconds apart in the opening moments of the second half as Seattle gained a bit of revenge after LAFC’s 4-1 thumping of the Sounders during the MLS is Back tournament in Florida. In the past, two goals that close together would have s...

Re-Doing the Nashville Predators’ 1998 Expansion Draft

On June 25, 1997, the NHL’s board of governors approved new teams for four cities in an ambitious plan to expand to 30 clubs within three years. (from ‘N.H.L. Names 4 Cities For Its New Franchises,’ New York Times, 06/18/1997) Nashville was the first to join for the 1998-99 season, followed by Atlanta the next year and both Minneapolis-St. Paul and Columbus in 2000-01. The players available in the 1998 Expansion Draft show how exponentially harder it was for the Nashville Predators to assembl...

Home Sellers Have the Upper Hand as High Demand Meets Low Inventory

– Homes are going under contract faster than they have in years and home values are growing at their quickest pace of the year – Home value growth continued to accelerate in July, up 4.5% year over year to $253,527. – One reason for continued home value growth is low inventory, which is keeping competition stiff and contributing to a strong sellers market in much of the country. There were more than 400,000 fewer homes on the market in mid-August than a year earlier, a 28.4% drop. – The...

Traded Devils Paying Dividends For New Playoff Teams

After last summer’s marquee additions of P.K. Subban, Jack Hughes, Wayne Simmonds, and Nikita Gusev, cautious optimism surrounded a New Jersey Devils team that had reached the postseason only once in seven years. A return to the playoffs in 2019-20 seemed plausible at long last.  After a slow start and lackluster winter painfully reinforced the uncertain relationship between on-paper expectations and the on-ice product, management doubled back with a trade deadline fire sale: head coach John ...

The Tampa Bay Lightning Move On To Round 2

from John Romano of the Tampa Bay Times, Please, don’t call this revenge. That would imply a grievance of some type, and the Lightning have spent the past 16 months blaming only themselves. No, this was more like the first purposeful steps toward absolution. More will eventually be required but, for now, beating Columbus 5-4 in overtime of Game 5 on Wednesday to move on to the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs is enough. Enough to forgive, if not forget, the historic disapp...

If there must be monuments

Sculpture of Rachel Carson by David Lewis, installed at Woods Hole (photo by Laura A.

Sometimes, monuments can be masterpieces, as with the Roosevelt Memorial in Washington. This truly tells a story, representing an important history through superb narrative art. Most of the time, though, a monument is just a guy on a horse or a guy standing in an imposing fa...
