‘Strange Brew’ and ‘SCTV’ Hosers Bob & Doug McKenzie Immortalized As Statues in Edmonton, Canada

Canada is known for giving us maple syrup and Ryan Reynolds, not to mention their undying love for hockey and inexplicably endless politeness. But when I think of Canada, there are two lovable hosers that come to mind, and that’s beer-chugging, hockey-loving brothers Bob and Doug McKenzie, played by Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis in both the Canadian sketch comedy series SCTV (or Second City Television) and the cult classic comedy feature film Strange Brew. Now the knuckleheads from the Great Whi...

Coronavirus Can’t Quarantine The Proxy War Between U.S. and Iran

A pandemic is spreading around the world, challenging global health systems and national preparedness.

Exit Lines: “Grand Horizons”

I bet Jane Alexander—former chair of the National Endowment for the Arts, whose much-lauded portrayals in nobility include Eleanor Roosevelt and FDR’s mother, Sara Delano Roosevelt—has spent her whole career yearning to say “fuck” and “pussy” onstage. Now a regal 80, in her first Broadway appearance since 1998, she gets her chance in Grand Horizons, a tidy com-dram enlivened by outbursts of different kinds. Bess Wohl’s play begins with Nancy (Alexander) calmly asking her husband of fifty years, ...

Maple Leafs News & Rumors: No-Win Game, Dubas at Deadline & Muzzin

It’s pretty tough to take when you think of it.

Vasilevskiy has 32 wins this season and is five wins ahead of the St. Louis Blues’ Jordan Binnington who has 28 after his win against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Hurricanes Trade for Vatanen

The Carolina Hurricanes were a very intriguing team heading into today’s trade deadline. Lost in the hysteria of the David Ayers game Saturday night, they lost both of their goaltenders, James Reimer and Peter Mrazek, to injury as well as defenseman Brett Pesce. While they didn’t nab a goaltender, general manager Don Waddell did add some scoring up front with forward Vincent Trocheck. He also improved his blue line by bringing in Brady Skjei from the New York Rangers and also Sami Vatanen fr...

What an odd game this hockey is. Two teams played on two nights and looked like two completely different teams each night. I’m sure that sounds confusing, but on Tuesday night in Pittsburgh, the Toronto Maple Leafs were simply steamrolled by the Penguins by a 5-2 score. Two nights later, the Penguins were completely overwhelmed by the Maple Leafs by a score of 4-0. The teams completely switched roles and results.
