Hometown Hockey - Johnny Bower Memories

Dec. 28, 2017: There are only three people in this world I thought would live forever. One of them was my dad. The other two were Gordie Howe and Johnny Bower. Dad, who was instrumental in making me a hockey fan, passed away eleven years ago, Gordie left us in June of 2016, and Johnny Bower died on Boxing Day, (coincidentally the same day my dad died). So much for my psychic capabilities. FULL STORY

Aug. 21, 2016: Mother Nature had a hard time deciding how to behave Saturday, but she sure gave us some pretty skies while she was thinking about it. Here are some clouds shot in Riverside over Belle Isle after the sun went down. Thank you, Mother Nature!! FULL STORY

SNAPSHOT - Victory 1 Cruises to Chicago

Aug. 12, 2016: If you thought you were seeing things at Dieppe Park Thursday, you weren’t.

The ship leaves Toronto or Montreal, depending on the cruise, and makes its way to Chicago, touching each of the five Great Lakes in the process FULL STORY

Aug. 10, 2016: Research shows that if you wait long enough you will be rewarded with a photo op. Tuesday morning I was at the river chasing a sunrise, when along came a couple of beauties. One was the American Mariner and the other was the Algoma Olympic FULL STORY

When Harry’s Met Corky

Aug. 7, 2016: I have a new friend and his name is Harry. Harry’s a sharp guy, some might say razor sharp. And he sure has a handle on things. Yes, I too have joined the Harry’s revolution. For those of you who haven’t heard, Harry’s is currently taking the shaving world by storm, offering a variety of shaving supplies delivered directly to your door for far less than you would pay at the drug store.

SNAPSHOT - University of Windor campus at Abars?

Jun. 11, 2016: Yesterday I half jokingly said that the University of Windsor should think about turning Abar's into a satellite campus for the History Dept. They would, of course, have to negotiate with the Moroun people. Perhaps a land swap with something closer to the bridge. FULL STORY

Memorial Cup 2017 Coming To Windsor
Memorial Cup 2017 Coming To Windsor

May. 2, 2016: this morning’s long awaited announcement that the Windsor Spitfires will play host to the 2017 MasterCard Memorial Cup. In a press release from the Spits, OHL Commissioner David Branch was quoted as saying “The city of Windsor and Essex County is home to some of the most passionate fans in the entire Canadian Hockey League.” Commissioner Branch is right. We love our hockey, and we love our Spitfires. Think back to May 2010 when the Spits won their second Memorial Cup in a row. FULL STORY
