Gotta See It: Booth’s tightrope walk ends poorly

10 Updates

Somewhere, Bob Saget just turned into a Vancouver Canucks fan, and he’s not sure why. Quoting Johnny Cash’s “Walk the Line,” Canucks forward David Booth — big-game hunter, compliance buyout candidate and all-around good sport — uploaded a brief video of himself attempting to navigate across on a slackline, presumably for his fiancee, Ashley Durham.

Source: Bleacher Report

Three weeks after the NHL's 2014 free-agency window opened, the flow of signings has slowed to a trickle. After handing out long-term deals with big dollar values to the most coveted prospects, teams are now bargain shopping with shorter terms and smaller cap hits. Last weekend, the New York Rangers scored good value when they signed dependable winger Lee Stempniak to a one-year, $900,000 deal. The Toronto Maple Leafs followed up on Tuesday with the announcement that they'd sign ...

Motorcycle Review: 2014 Triumph Explorer and Trophy

Source: Driving Canada

At first glance, these would appear to be two massively disparate machines to be comparing, one the very essence of sophistication in its elegant sport touring cloth and the other the equivalent of a rough and tumble lumberjack looking for trees to fell and dirt to pummel. On-road/off-road, tall/relatively close to the ground, aerodynamic luggage/square boxes, Triumph’s Explorer and Trophy would seem as different as, well, a street bike and an off-road motorcycle. And ye ...

Benning ready for more Canuck repairs

So I’d pull up my poorly maintained 1975 Honda Civic into the driveway of my friend Pat Kimmitt. His father knew engines like B.B. King knows the blues. He could tune your car with a scowl. Mr. Kimmitt would open the hood, don a look of disdain at the state of upkeep, and begrudgingly have the thing ...
