You have to wonder what the heck the Boston Bruins were thinking last Friday. Their moves and their drafting made even the Leafs look good by comparison, and that is saying something. First, the Bruins sent power forward Milan Lucic to the L.A. Kings for basically a first rounder. But in one of the most puzzling moves in hockey in a long, long time, the Bruins dealt defenceman Dougie Hamilton to the Calgary Flames for draft picks. What???? Why on God’s green earth would a team d... Click here
It's really amazing that the 'Weatherman' picked the weekend to unload. I was sitting in the sunshine Friday afternoon, tanning my shins and nose, thinking it was just a glorious day. But I had informed myself of the weekend forecast, knowing that Niagara was going to be 'flush' with rain.
It was the weekend of the Ft Erie Friendship Festival, Flavours in Port Colborne, along with the Art Crawl. At least the Thorold South Children's Fishing Derby ran without a ... Click here
It's time to celebrate Dad today! After talking and texting with a few listeners, I collected a few gems about dear ol' DAD.. Here are some of the comments: "Just once on Father's Day I wish my kids would give me a #1 Dad mug, instead of one with my actual ranking."
Remember, what Dad really wants is a nap.
I would give my Dad what he really wants on Father's Day, but I can't afford to move out yet.
The Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup for the third time in six years on Tuesday night. First off, congratulations to coach Joel Quenneville and the entire Blackhawks club, I honestly believe the best team took home Lord Stanley’s mug. Secondly , as I watched the Cup being passed around on the ice late Tuesday night, I thought of the many, many Chicago fans in I’ve met over the years. There are still a lot of people in Niagara who fondly remember the... Click here

Giant FM gave listeners a chance to bid to golf, as part of a foursome, with Marcel Dionne and Rick Vaive, two of the finest gentlemen to ever skate in the NHL. I was there wit... Click here

King Biscuit Boy played with Crowbar, Janis Joplin, Ronnie Hawkins, Muddy Waters and Joe Cocker. I have memories of actually cutting a few dance steps on stage in one of Newell's Lon... Click here

So the Leafs have shocked the hockey world by signing free agent coach Mike Babcock to a massive, 8 year, $50 million dollar deal, the richest contract for a coach in the history of the NHL. Babcock had been the most talked-about, most heavily pursued coach quite possibly of all-time in pro hockey. Much of the hoopla was created by a media frenzy surrounding the former Red Wings coach, and based on the reaction of most of Leaf Nation, the fans were thrilled with the signing as well. But...
