Clippers’ Landry Shamet is more than a shooter – but he gets the point

Wichita State didn’t make this year’s NCAA Tournament for the first time in seven years, but Shockers fans should be able to tune into Clippers games in the coming weeks to see a point guard of theirs play on. In Wichita, that’s how they think of Landry Shamet, the Clippers’ sharp new starting shooting guard – more as a point guard than as purely a long-distance sniper. In his two years at Wichita State, Shamet’s 288 career assists are the second most in school history through two seasons, and h...

Natalie Lynn ‘One’

Natalie Lynn, a Toronto based pop/rock artist, recently released her debut single One. It’s a solid uptempo track, a nice change from the gloomy-sad songs dominating the charts. Natalie says “it’s like the feeling of being at the top of a roller coaster. Not the part when you actually start going down, but right before that. Pure excitement and vulnerability. The feeling like you might just be on the top of the world.” Pulling influence from Stevie Nicks, Haim and The 1975, her sounds connects ...

The Mike Babcock/Kyle Dubas Relationship

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun, It’s not difficult or unreasonable to speculate about the state of the team and maybe more importantly the state of the relationship between general manager Kyle Dubas and coach Mike Babcock. Dubas was 4 years old when Babcock won his first coach of the year award. These are men of different styles, different philosophies, different generations, really, and that’s not uncommon for any coach-GM combination in any sport — except in this case the age fa...

Morning Line- Mike Harrington

The Sabres were owned in their own building by their archrivals and their fans. Again. Phil Housley was spitting nails after this one. This group of Blue and Gold doesn't seem to have enough hate of the Blue and White like Buffalo team's did in Housley's day. No excuse to be so flat right from the opening faceoff. People want to blame the coach for that. He's not on the ice. Blame the guys in uniform. Show some pride. -Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News on the Sabres/Lea...

Maple Leafs Swat Sabres – Tavares & Matthews With 2 Each

BUFFALO, N.Y. — John Tavares and Auston Matthews each had a goal and assist, and the Toronto Maple Leafs won for just the second time in six games, beating the Buffalo Sabres 4-2 on Wednesday night. Mitchell Marner and Zach Hyman, into an empty net, also scored and the Maple Leafs inched to within four points of the idle Boston Bruins in the race for second place in the Atlantic Division standings. Garret Sparks stopped 22 shots for Toronto, which was playing on consecutive nights after a 3-0...

Wednesday Afternoon Hockey Thoughts

from Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, - ... The focus should be on repairing the problems and focusing on the playoffs. This is too important a time of year. Babcock’s not walking away, but is anyone else wondering if this marriage is in trouble? - I think Vancouver is going to look at finding a youngish defenceman, maybe somebody in his early to mid-20s. Troy Stecher’s in that range, and he’s made real good strides. Quinn Hughes is younger, Alexander Edler and Chris Tanev older. Think...

Zipcar Disruption

This isn't a security story, but it easily could have been. Last Saturday, Zipcar had a system outage: "an outage experienced by a third party telecommunications vendor disrupted connections between the company's vehicles and its reservation software." That didn't just mean people couldn't get cars they reserved. Sometimes is meant they couldn't get the cars they were already driving to work: Andrew Jones of Roxbury was stuck on hold with customer service for at least a half-hour while he and ...

TOKYO — Ichiro drew all the cheers. Most everyone else on the Seattle Mariners did all the hitting. A crowd that came to salute Ichiro Suzuki in his homeland saw Domingo Santana deliver the biggest hit at the Tokyo Dome, a grand slam that sent Seattle over the Oakland Athletics 9-7 on Wednesday in the Major League Baseball opener. Batting ninth and knowing he’d get two plate appearances, Ichiro popped up and worked a walk. The 45-year-old star took his spot in right field to begin the bottom of ...

These are the 1st-round NHL playoff matchups we want to see

The thing about the Stanley Cup playoffs is the first round usually produces the most compelling hockey.Maybe it's because that after a long six-month-plus, drawn-out regular season the players, coaches and fanatics can't wait for the level of hockey to increase a few more degrees.Or maybe it's because the first round has been a home to upsets. The Chicago Blackhawks were the West regular-season champs in 2016-17 and got bounced in a sweep by the eighth-seeded Nashville Predators....

6 Cities That Deserve Another Chance

Travel isn’t always rainbows and puppies. Sometimes bad things happen and sometimes we visit places that we don’t like. I know, I know, there’s something good to be found everywhere; except when you don’t want to find it. Usually when I don’t like a new city or destination it’s because I was in a bad mood or something rubbed me the wrong way. I’m a fairly temperamental person and when I decide I don’t like something, I tend to never deviate from that idea. So in a spirit of reconciliation, I be...
