We're back, after a busy work trip to my fav city in Canada - Montreal. Sorry Toronto, regrets Vancouver, swing and a miss Halifax, sucks to be you Ottawa, nice try Edmonton, not-even-the-best-in-Alberta Calgary...Montreal wins hands down. Wasn't all work by any means, not when your hotel is a couple blocks from Crescent Street. Also, worked my way into some last minute Montreal Canadiens tickets Wednesday, a very entertaining 5-3 win over the New York Islanders.

Had a laugh hearing the fans cheer Carey Price hard after he was booed equally hard last time I was there in February, and he wasn't even playing that night. How soon they forget! Great times.
Anytime the Texas Rangers want to show up would be fine. A 9-0 beat down last night is no way to generate interest outside of San Francisco. Matt Cain has now thrown 21 2/3 shutout innings for the Giants, who are up 2-0 and had Bon Jovi's "Livin' On A Prayer" going last night post game. You know, because they're "half way there".
Bud Selig should pounce on this one: the MLB players union says it would consider adding extra playoff teams.
Here's one way to handle your ejection from a sporting event: 1. Leave the field of play. 2. Return with car. 3. Try to run down the referee.
The NBA enlisted comic - they ones who draw, not make people funny - Stan Lee to draw covers for each NBA team.
Here are the 10 Greatest World Series photos of all time. The way this series is going, don't imagine there will be any pictures taken of the final games. Fox must be lamenting the abscence of the New York Yankees, given that ratings dropped 25% from Game 1 last year to this year.
I love frivolous lawsuits. A man is suing McDonald's for making him fat. Oh, he won.
Word is Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been told he's got a transfer fund of £100 million. Nice work, Wayne Rooney. Wayne got himself a raise, and a way to improve the talent around him. A start: get
A little late getting to this one, but a great history of rap with the always hilarious Justin Timberlake and the occasionally funny Jimmy Fallon.
