SNAPSHOT - MV Paul R. Tregurtha

Jul. 11, 2015: Currently known as the Queen of the Lakes, the MV Paul R. Tregurtha is the largest ship currently working the Great Lakes. She is a bulk carrier freighter, and was originally launched as the William J. DeLancey. She is the last of thirteen “thousand footers” to go into Great Lakes service. She is also the last Great Lakes ship to have been built in Lorain, Ohio at the American Ship Building Company yard. FULL STORY

SNAPSHOT - New Market opens in Windsor

Jun. 8, 2015: The City Market opened in the Walkerville area this weekend, and by all indications, it was a smashing success. Located on the east side of Walker Road just north of Richmond Street, the brand new complex features many vendors selling fruits and vegetables. There is also a butcher, a baker, and while we didn’t see a candle stick maker, there was an Avon lady and a florist. The prices are great too. We stocked up on fruits and vegetables and got everything in the photo below for 23.00! Check it out next time you’re in the area. FULL STORY

Windsor Raceway - All But Gone
Windsor Raceway - All But Gone

Jun. 6, 2015: As demolition of the Windsor Raceway begins this week I’m reminded of all the good times I spent there over the years. My earliest memory of the place was the day my mom and dad took us to see it. I was about seven years old, and if I remember right, it was an open house affair, where we were all allowed to go out onto the racing surface. It felt like rubber, and was called something like the Tartan Track. FULL STORY

Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus - Babcock headed to Toronto

May. 20, 2015: To quote New York Sun newsman Francis Pharcellus Church; “Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.” Jolly old St. Nick brought Mike Babcock from Hockeytown to the real centre of the hockey universe. FULL STORY

The 8 Week Challenge - It’s Not A Diet

May. 7, 2015: Today’s column comes with a disclaimer. It’s not for the faint of heart. To my family, friends and associates, the following may be quite shocking to all of you. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. I haven’t had a coffee in over a week. Or French fries. Or pizza. Or a lot of things I used to eat and drink. Why? Because along with ten of my colleagues at DJ Galvanizing, and our spouses, I began a program called the 8 Week Challenge. FULL STORY

Maple Leafs get pounded in Columbus, There is always next year,

Apr. 9, 2015: The Toronto Maple Leafs played their 81st game of the season Wednesday night; a roadie in Columbus. The match featured two teams that won’t be in the playoffs this year, but for different reasons. The Blue Jackets were hit hard by injuries, and lost over 500 man games because of them. The Leafs? Not so lucky. At least that would explain why a team that looked so good on paper at the start of the season could be as dismal as they were. As the saying goes, there’s always next year. But that saying is growing old, because they’ve been using it since 1967. FULL STORY

Leafs Get Burned By Flames

Mar. 14, 2015: The Toronto Maple Leafs started a three game road trip in Calgary Friday night and got beat by a score of 6-3. This one was over in the first period. All Calgary did was score four goals, including not one, but two short handed goals. On the bright side, the lone Leafs’ goal of the period was scored by Richard Panik on a power play. Calgary’s top line of Sean Monahan, Jiri Hudler, and Johnny Gaudreau combined for nine points in the game, and to no one’s surprise were named the three stars of the game. FULL STORY

Maple Leafs, Sabres: Battle of The Abysmal

Mar. 12, 2015: The Toronto Maple Leafs played host to the Buffalo Sabres Wednesday night in what some fans were calling the Battle For McDavid. C’mon folks, if you think the Leafs have any chance of landing the Erie Otters wunderkind, give your head a shake. It’s not going to happen. The best we can hope for is a top five pick, and that’s ok with me. Tonight’s game wasn’t the Battle For McDavid, it was the Battle Of The Abysmal. FULL STORY

Mar. 4, 2015: Goaltending Coach Robb Tallas of the Florida Panthers stands in the hallway dressed for back up after both Goaltenders went down against the Toronto Maple Leafs at the BB&T Center on March 3, 2015 in Sunrise, Florida. The Leafs held on to win their first road game since New Year’s Eve, beating the Panthers 3-2. FULL STORY

SNAPSHOT - Three good guys, put 'er there!

Mar. 1, 2015: Every once in a while, you think of a cool shot that you'd like to take. When three of this season's Spitfires lost a few of their of their chiclets I thought I'd ask them to get together and give me a big smile. The fellas were kind enough to oblige me this afternoon. In separate incidents this year, Jamie Lewis lost three, Hayden McCool lost two, and Luke Kirwan lost one. Thanks for humouring me, guys! FULL STORY
