CANADA MOVES ON TO GOLD MEDAL GAME!!
Canada has been made proud once again after winning 1-0 vs the US! Benn swooped in and scored the winning goal early into the second period and Price held his own with an amazing defensive performance! There is a strong possibility we could grab a double gold in hockey for the third time in the past four Winter Olympic Games. Anyone else waking up extra early on Sunday to watch Canada vs Sweden?
Anthony Bennett with his FIRST career Double Double!
Our hometown boy, Bennett, put up his first career double double last night! Check it out:

3 Sisters, 2 Medals!
A Gold & a Silver for the Dufour-Lapointe sisters! All 3 sisters were competing in Sochi for medals in the women’s Moguls event. We all knew they were contenders, but what came next was a surprise for us Canadians back at home! Justine (the youngest) captured Canada’s first Gold medal of the games and her older sister, Chloe, placed second and grabbed us a Silver!
Now, just a couple days later - all 3 ladies are International Superstars! The media has gone crazy for the energetic siblings.
To see more on the sisters, check out CBC Olympics blog:
The Winter Olympics are Here!
The highly-anticipated Olympic Winter Games officially kicked off today with the lighting of the torch. Well known Russian goalie, Tretiak (who some may argue is the best goaltender to never play in the NHL) lit the torch along with Irina Rodnina (a famous Russian figure skater).
There have been some crazy pictures posted by the media and athletes showing the conditions in Sochi and much talk of terrorist threats. Here’s to hoping the Games go smoothly and safely.

Super Bowl XLVII Set
With two conference finals done, at almost the same scores (23-17, 26-16) the table is set for two teams to face in the Big Apple. The Denver Broncos, and the Seattle Seahawks.
It is truly old school versus new school. With the Broncos led by Peyton Manning as one of the best pocket passers in the league. To the Seahawks being led by Russell Wilson who can just as easily run for a 100 yards as throw for them.
I can’t think of which two teams that match-up better. The 1st ranked offense versus the 1st ranked secondary. Peytons receivers should be way less effective to how they are normally, getting pushed around and man handled by the bigger cornerbacks of the Seahawks. But Wes Welker is still a big threat, since he’s use to taking big hits and he’s use to the pressure.
The game will be won on the ground with strong running games and good defense.
But with Moreno of the Broncos banged up and missing a lot of key players on defense, Seattle should be able to have their way with them. Lynch has been in Beast Mode the whole playoffs running for over 100 yards each game. He is the true game breaker of the game.
Final score prediction:
27-20 in favour of the Seahawks

Nebraska’s Biggest City Loving Peyton’s Pre-Snap Play Calling!
RUN! RUN! 96! DOUBLE! DOUBLE! OMAHA! OMAHA! – If you have ever watched Peyton Manning and heard his pre-snap play calls, I’m SURE you have heard him say Omaha a couple times. If you watched the game last weekend against San Diego, you would have, in fact, heard it 44 times. Omaha, Nebraska is loving the exposure and have officially invited Manning for a tour of the city. As a thank you to Peyton, 5 Omaha-based companies are coming together and donating $500 to the Peyton Manning Foundation for every “Omaha” we hear this Sunday.
Love this! Peyton’s foundation is for at-risk youth, so let’s hope his offense is on the field a TON on Sunday! Go Broncos!
Tsk Tsk Tsk JR!
JR Smith was fined $50k for untying an opposing player’s shoelace for the second time this week. The League office sent a warning to JR after the first time, but he ignored it and pulled the same stunt last night.
JR’s behaviour is sure costing him some money this season! He was suspended for the first 5 games of the season for violating anti-drug policies – costing him over $250k and fined $25k earlier in the season for talking trash on Twitter.
Check out the Youtube video of JR untying the laces – this guy really is a joker:
Ah! Today is a beautiful day, minus the frigid cold of Canada. Its a day of new beginnings. A day that finally rewards the crazed for what they have been yelling ALL season.
Of course I am talking about Black Monday. And unlike its counterpart Black Friday, there are no extreme sales, and trampling deaths. Unless you count garage sales of former head coaches in the NFL.
Yes, this is the day where NFL teams depart with their coaches. And their have been many already in this young day.
Lets go over them:
Jim Schwartz fired. He was the head coach for the Detroit Lions for the past 5 years.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Greg Schiano has been terminated. (I don’t know if that sounds better or worse that fired…. All I can picture is Arnie in his leather jacket now…. God I should watch that movie again…).
In the early parts of the morning the Redskins tweeted out that they have relieved Executive Vice President/Head Coach Mike Shanahan.
The Vikings announced that Leslie Frazier will not return in 2014 as the head coach.
And of course the firing started at 9 am eastern standard time with the Browns firing Rob Chudzinski.
But of course I am still waiting for Jason Garrett of the Dallas Cowboys to get the boot. But per sources they say he is safe.
