The Vancouver Canucks are doing much better than anyone predicted at the start of the 2018-19 season. For Canuck fans, there are two obvious reasons.

In less than half a season, he’s established himself as the team’s current star and bright light for the future. He’s been the greatest surprise of the Canucks’ s...

Florida man pulls gun, racial slurs on kids in street argument

The video begins in medias res during the annual "Wheels Up, Guns Down" bicycle ride, with a group of teens and an older woman engaged in a heated dispute over the riders' blocking of traffic. As the woman and one boy face off, another teen rides up to them on his bicycle and she accuses him of running over her foot (apparently falsely, though perhaps it happened before the video begins).
