    What are you Listening to?

    And expanding from shanties, I love this beautiful Gaelic waulking song by Enya. Waulking songs are Scottish folk songs, traditionally sung in the Gaelic language by women while waulking cloth. This practice involved a group of people beating newly woven tweed rhythmically against a table or...

    Prediction 2021 leadership group

    Yep. The way he gets continually shredded on here by some posters is so disheartening. It's a really pleasant surprise to see him named, and I don't feel he's out of place at all in the leadership group when you consider the values his style of play embodies. He's an all 4 Quarter player with...

    We don't really give them instruments here either. Sometimes we don't even let them inside! Haha. Nah, that's really cool that you got to see them all the way down in your part of the world. They're such a Canadian staple. Did you guys make it to Newfoundland as part of your trip? I would...

    What are you Listening to?

    It's got quite a bit of sea shanty about it, which is what I love so much. Speaking of shanties, here's one from a band from my hometown, Spirit of the West. Their singer John Mann died just over a year ago from early onset alzheimers. Was so sad. I think I posted some of their music in this...

    While we're on time machines, song for my dad. He wasn't a Queen fan, but he always loved this one. I love it too.

    What are you Listening to?

    Great song koshari - ELO is one of my "time machine" bands. Whenever I hear them I flash back to riding in my aunt's Barracuda as a kid, going with her to take her new lab puppy to the vets for his first visit. She was the best aunt ever - the "crazy" aunt that hopefully everyone has one. The...

    That's awesome Val - one of those albums you will forever associate with a particular time in your life. I love how music does that. It can be such a time machine for me.

    News Coronavirus (COVID-19) Discussion Thread III

    And I can tell you right now that the approach you guys have taken as a nation is the correct one. You only have to look at the numbers across the rest of the world to know that. Some of the whinging I've read about it in this thread is bizarre, frankly. You guys are in a very good place...

    News Coronavirus (COVID-19) Discussion Thread III

    I think the picture here is quite different to Australia though, TMB. We're past super-spreader events holding much meaning here really. The virus has become a part of daily life for the last year. We're currently sitting at 843,000 cases and 21,630 deaths. We've got all three variants here now...

    News Coronavirus (COVID-19) Discussion Thread III

    There is no politics on display about the Covid mutations here in Canada. We get almost daily updates here from epidemiologists, immunologists, and doctors, and the general consensus from them is that the mutated strains are more transmissible, particularly the UK one. Canadian doctors...

    Player Watch #26: Tarryn Thomas - has mural

    I think he already has the right body. I know many on here get all excited about players bulking up and putting on weight, and for many players yes, that is helpful development for their game. But Tarryn is so fluid and plays so intuitively, that he is perfect the way he is right now. He needs...

    Player Watch #8: Bailey Scott - extends contract to end of 2022

    Said it before and I'll say it again - Bailey Scott will be Captain one day. And anyone who thinks he won't see 200 games is just too distracted by the flashier players. Bailey is probably our most likely 200 gamer of all the youngsters we've got right now. And he'll do it like he does...
