The main road I was following, Jalan Kinabalu, suddenly became flooded with hundreds of men walking in the opposite direction. I dodged and wove through the oncoming masses, wondering what on earth was... The post PH...

Just three days after All-Star defender Sarah Edney played her last game as a Beaut before pursuing dental school in Australia, word came out on the evening of Jan. 8, 2019 that Beauts General Manager Nik Fattey had resigned from his position.

Blue Jackets Facing January Judgment

The Columbus Blue Jackets ended 2018 on a high note. They started 2019 on a scary low note Friday night in Raleigh. The Hurricanes raced out to a 3-0 lead and then held on to defeat the Blue Jackets 4-2. The key word in that last sentence was raced. The Hurricanes controlled the play and did whatever they wanted the first half of the game. The Blue Jackets stood around and mostly watched it happen in front of them. For a team that claims to be good and in the Stanley Cup hunt, they looked like a...
