Hockey Hall of Fame: Stuff You Didn't Know About

That's one big goalie. I feel super shrimpy.
The HHOF was ok, there was nothing really extraordinary about the place even for a hockey fan like me. Of course you have all the stuff you would expect and I'll quickly go through some highlights. There was a somewhat interesting but totally dated shooting gallery where you take wrist shots at a virtual goalie. Unless you shoot the inside post, nothing is going in. It didn't help that I kept shooting at his chest. I rang one that looked like the inside of the post and in but it didn't register. Me thinks me rusty : p

Mega Cheap, Mega Bus: Toronto-Montreal Round-Trip


I don’t want to make this seem like an advertorial but MEGA Bus seems like a pretty good deal. I mean, $42 tax in for a round trip to Toronto is cheaper than the gas ($100) it would take to drive there.

Carcassonne

Growing up playing North American games (Monopoly, Life...) I was pleased last year to learn about a fun game originating from Germany called Carcassonne.

Why Tennis Is Fun For Everyone (+ Tips for Beginners)

Don't try this at home
Before I comment about the wonderful sport of tennis, I must comment on last week’s US Open. I know it’s a bit late but the Djokovic vs. Nadal match was history in the making. First, Djokovic’s record of 64-2 will most likely not be equaled anytime soon, but then again it wasn’t that long ago in ‘84 when Johnny McEnroe went 82-3. Congrats to him and I’d love to rally with someone of his caliber one day.

ComicCon 2011 (Montreal)


*Update, new masquerade videos added, click here to view them.

The Montreal ComicCon is on this weekend and we (Ryan and I) decided to check it out. It's the first time I have ever been to any sort of comic book convention although I have been to card shows ages ago as a kid. There were some pretty big names in the geek world, namely Stan Lee, Adam Ward, James Marsters, Michael Dorn, Marina Sirtis and more.
