The Motley Crue Movie is coming..but not he one we expected 28/06/2016 13:32

Whatever happened to the movie about The Crue that was to be based on the book "The Dirt"?

Remember that from a few years back?

They always said they were close to casting...but then changed directors and delays, delays, delays.

Guess we'll never see that movie....

Hockey Hall of Fame is becoming a joke 28/06/2016 06:42

The Hockey Hall of Fame has four new inductees. Former Leafs coach Pat Quinn has been voted in as a builder.Meanwhile, Eric Lindros, former goalie Rogie Vachon and Russian winger Sergei Makarov have been voted in as players.I certainly have no problem with Pat Quinn getting in the Hall as a builder, it’s just too bad he passed away before being bestowed the honour. Lindros? Maybe, maybe not. As for Rogie, hey, why not? But here’s the kicker. Sergei Makarov in the Hockey ...

Canadian kids get overlooked again by the Leafs 27/06/2016 09:09

The NHL draft has come and gone, and you have to like, for the most part, what the Canadian NHL teams did. Granted, all seven teams missed the playoffs, so were assured of relatively high first round picks as a result.
As for the Leafs, picking Arizona-born forward Auston Matthews at # 1 overall was pretty much a no-brainer. The Leafs also owned two second round picks, and used them to select a Russian and Swedish right winger. It did not take Don Cherry long to get on Twitt...

Summer as a Kid 26/06/2016 07:48

Today is our 'Salute to Summer Super Sunday'. The best of Summer sounds, from Noon. I remember being a boy, when Summer seemed to stretch into Forever. For a kid, Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing, and to have it count for something. To lie in the grass and watch the clouds sail past.

I used to ride my bike, play pickup baseball, jump in the hay in a friendly farmer's barn, leave the house in the morning, and return in time for supper-...

CFL Season preview 23/06/2016 10:11

It's been a long, long time in between games that count for CFL fans, but this weekend, a new season begins! And what a way to kick things off with the Argos at home, their new home, beautiful BMO Filed, against their arch-rivals, the Hamilton Tiger Cats!!

Such is life in the Canadian Football league, and pro sports in general these days, but there have been some massive changes for virtually every team in the league this past off-season, both player-wise and in the...

We're into Summer. This Sunday starting at Noon, we'll feature the best of Summer Classic Rock- each hour- with four cuts right off the top!

I want your input. Send me a note at pporter@giantfm.com

What's the song that brings back memories for you? For me, it's the Beach Boys and Good Vibrations. But that's only one. I could go on and on. In the Summertime by Mungo Jerry, Summertime Blues, Here Comes the Sun, Boys of Summer, Summer in the Cit...

Why do we have to fight? 21/06/2016 11:33

Led Zeppelin is worth more than we could ever imagine having in 47 lifetimes.

As we all know, they are being sued over Stairway To Heaven.

Yes, "Taurus" by Spirit sounds a bit like Stairway.

But why fight over this crap?

BARGAINS THAT WERE TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE 21/06/2016 10:19

Coming up this Saturday at the Gale Center in Niagara Falls, it’s the first annual “Garage Sale at the Gale.” Now, Calling it a garage sale is a bit of a stretch because there’s no garage but there will be a sale.

What’s going to happen is people will be selling goods out of their car trunk at whatever price is agreed upon. The organization makes money according to how many parking spots are reserved by the pros...

Who is Frederik Anderson??? 21/06/2016 06:18

Alright, honestly. Raise your hand if you’ve ever seen Frederik Anderson play goal for the Anaheim Ducks. If your hand is in the air right now, consider yourself a hardcore hockey fan. Even though we have the Super Sports Pak or whatever it’s called, and have access to every NHL game through the season and playoffs, I can honestly say we haven’t watched a lot of Anaheim games, unless they’re playing the Leafs or maybe the Sabres.

Just 'Dad' My Father.. 19/06/2016 07:38

Father's Day 2016. Don't forget about Dad, and please don't get him a tie or a funny mug. He really deserves more. Not all of us are fortunate enough to still have Dad around to give a gift to today.

My Father passed away at a young age of just 64. He never made it to retirement, and I don't think he would really have enjoyed not working everyday. Dad loved work. He loved his fellow employees, and he loved the Automobile dealership he eventually owned, after work...

NHL to Vegas? Really? 16/06/2016 09:15

So it looks like the NHL will be expanding once again, by one team, and surprise, surprise, the new team will be located in a U.S. city. While there is nothing etched in stone just yet, according to multiple reports, the league will be voting soon on an expansion to Las Vegas. Why? Oh I can give you 500 million reasons why. That’s the amount of money being mentioned that the prospective owner of the new team would have to come up with. So there’s that. And not much e...

Long odds for Leafs and Sabres 14/06/2016 09:05

Even though the Stanley Cup playoffs just wrapped up on Sunday, it didn’t take long for Las Vegas oddsmakers to get fans thinking about next season.

Vegas has established the Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins as favourites to win it all next season, at 8-1 odds.

Penguins G,M, Jim Rutherford says the team is in a good place with the salary cap. With the exeception of defenceman Ben Lovejoy, who will be an unrestricted free agent, and Justi...

The greatest of all time 10/06/2016 10:09

On the same day the greatest boxer of all time, "The Champ", Muhammed Ali is being buried, we're hearing the sad, sad news that "Mr. Hockey", Gordie Howe, has died at the age of 88. What can you say about Gordie, other than he was the greatest all-around hockey player who ever lived. And probably the most feared and respected players ever. Not only that, but a genuinely nice, humble, incredible man off the ice. There have been other players who are in the conversation whe...

This is a stupid question 08/06/2016 10:18

I just had a couple days off, and I didn't even turn on my computer

Not once

Well Here it is the first week of June which means we are less than a month away from the Tragically Hips first show in B.C. Following the Vancouver shows the tour will start to move east until the final gig in Kingston in August.

Most of us have heard how pre-sale tickets were scooped up by non “Hip” fans because those tickets are back on the market again but at a huge increase. Thanks to places like “stub hub” and others, if ...
