Check this Canadian (of course) guy out. He’s about to turn 90 years old, plays hockey three times a week, has 12 kids, still shovels his driveway, and takes care of a graveyard during the summer.
The U.S. is currently taking on Canada at the IIHF world juniors in Finland, and the Yanks will have to play the final two periods without potential NHL first-rounder Alex DeBrincat after the Michigan native delivered his stick blade straight into Flyers prospect Travis Konecny’s gut. Go USA!
In what’s probably the most Canadian sentence I will ever write, the Edmonton Eskimos have successfully lobbied the Canadian Football League to restrict the Ottawa Redblacks from bringing along the loggersports team that traditionally saws off a celebratory log slice after touchdowns. The Grey Cup takes place this…
NHL player Clayton Stoner, then with the Minnesota Wild, traveled to British Columbia in May of 2013, killed a grizzly bear, cut off his head, and posed for a photo. That September, we declared him an enemy of Deadspin. Today, Stoner’s facing five charges related to the death of Cheeky the bear.
Canada has NBAers like Andrew Wiggins, Kelly Olynyk, and Corey Joseph on its roster, while I can almost guarantee you’ve never heard of anybody on Venezuela’s. But when the two teams met in the semifinals of the FIBA Americas tournament in Mexico City last night, it was Venezuela who prevailed 79-78.
The Blue Jays are in the process of putting a whooping down on the
Tigers, led by Edwin Encarnacion and his nine RBIs. After his third homer, a grand slam to bring the score to 13-1 in the seventh inning, Jays fans delayed the game by throwing a bunch of hats all over the Rogers Centre grounds.
Novak Djokovic is fed up, man. Right after he took the first set from Jeremy Chardy in yesterday’s Rogers Cup semifinal in Montreal, Djokovic complained to the official that he could smell someone smoking the devil’s lettuce in the arena.
American politicians, you’d better step up your game. This campaign ad from Canadian politician Wyatt Scott—featuring dragons, giant geese, robots, laser eyes and much, much more—is the new gold standard in campaign advertising.
In Monday’s writeup of Canada’s baseball team defeating the United States in the Pan American Games, I made some jokes at the expense of the gold-medal winners. Specifically, I said they suck and probably smell like maple syrup. Tuesday, I followed up with a recap of Canada’s gold in women’s basketball, in which I…
Canada, the moose-humping failed state to the north, won gold in women’s basketball at the Pan Am Games after beating the United States 81-73 Monday night. Whatever, hosers.
Canada settled for a scoreless draw in Gold Cup action against El Salvador in Carson last night, but only because Orlando City striker and #1 MLS overall pick Cyle Larin blew a wide open shot on goal in the first half. What a pity.
The Netherlands were one of our favorites of the longshots coming into this tournament, their first ever World Cup, for a number of reasons. Their underdog status, their paltry history, the sudden boom of young talent once the country began to prioritize the women’s game, their expressive style of play—it all combined…
After an uneventful 90 minutes of thwarted Canadian attacks and shaky though effective Chinese defending, the host nation managed to avoid embarrassment by eking out a victory thanks to a penalty call. The call was perfectly fair, and the penalty taken with characteristic aplomb by Christine Sinclair.
The stage is set. Fresh off of their best-ever result in a major tournament (a bronze in the 2012 London Olympics) that climaxed with probably the sport’s greatest-ever game, Canada enter this summer’s World Cup on home soil turf with, as Beatrix Kiddo would say, some unfinished business. Unfortunately for the Reds,…
Before tonight’s Lightning-Rangers Game 7, CBC caught up with a fan who paid $4,500 for a seat along the glass. “Hundreds only. Benjamin Franklin is killin’ the game!” Give this guy a reality show; Hockey Night in Canada has its hero.
Russia got smoked by Canada, 6-1, in yesterday’s final of the IIHF World Championship, the most prestigious annual tournament in hockey. (The U.S. took the bronze). The Russian players stuck around for the medal ceremony, but left the ice before Canada’s national anthem was played:
A Canadian basketball team forfeited its league championship because it never showed up to play the last game.
For the past year, Rich Juzwiak and Caity Weaver have scoured New York in search of the city’s greatest restaurant. This spring, the authors expanded their quest into a global hunt: the search for the Best Restaurant in the World. Due to time and budget constraints, it was determined that the most efficient method to…
