  1. My wife asked me to stop singing "I'm A Believer" by The Monkees because she found it annoying.   At first, I thought she was kidding.


    But then I saw her face...

      Amazing that Neal Diamond was the actual composer for the song

      Who’d thought that Metallica’s Enter the Sandman was really just a cover of the great Pat Boone (Jeebus singer) who composed the song back in the 50s!

       

       

      (ps: I’m kidding of course on this post...not on the Neal Diamond fact though).

  2. Head bangers in leather
    Sparks fly in the dead of the night
    It all comes together
    When they shoot out the lights
    Fifty thousand watts of power
    And it's pushin' overload
    The beast is ready to devour
    All the metal they can hold
    Reachin' overload
    Start to explode

      This song was on the radio as I drove past the IPE Grounds in Armstrong - the Heavy Metal Fest is this weekend and they were already setting up.

      @Heretic  First time I heard this song was from the animated movie “Heavy Metal”....

       

       

       

  3. 2020 Stanley Cup Champions - Vancouver Canucks!
  4. Exactly - and technically, women got paid more from a percentage point of view: "1) 2010 – Women’s World Cup brought in $73M in revenue, Men’s World Cup $4B! (NBC Sports) 2) In 2018 according to FIFA the Men’s World Cup had 3.6B total viewers, the last Women’s World Cup in 2015 only 764M. 3) In 2010 according to Forbes women got “paid 9 percent of the final Women’s World Cup take, while the men only earned 7 percent of the revenue from the 2018 Men’s World Cup.” " The Soccer players complaining may be great at kicking a ball, not nearly as great at understanding basic economics.
  5. The Canucks will play their home opener at Rogers Arena against the Los Angeles Kings on Oct. 9, exactly 49 years after the franchise's first NHL regular-season game, also against the Kings (Los Angeles 3, Vancouver 1 on Oct. 9, 1970).

      Gotta milk that 50th year!!! It (kind of) starts half way through this season.

  6. Don't rush the Russian!
  7. Not me - by far the worst - as in the entire time I have been a Canucks fan (since 1975) - they have never gotten the 1st over all pick.

  10. My 1st beef against Google: " Back in January, Google announced a proposed change to Chrome’s extensions system, called Manifest V3, that would stop current ad blockers from working efficiently. In a response to the overwhelming negative feedback, Google is standing firm on Chrome’s ad blocking changes, sharing that current ad blocking capabilities will be restricted to enterprise users. Manifest V3 comprises a major change to Chrome’s extensions system, including a revamp to the permissions system and a fundamental change to the way ad blockers operate. In particular, modern ad blockers, like uBlock Origin and Ghostery, use Chrome’s webRequest API to block ads before they’re even downloaded. With the Manifest V3 proposal, Google deprecates the webRequest API’s ability to block a particular request before it’s loaded. As you would expect, power users and extension developers alike criticized Google’s proposal for limiting the user’s ability to browse the web as they see fit. Now, months later, Google has responded to some of the various issues raised by the community, sharing more details on the changes to permissions and more. The most notable aspect of their response, however, is a single sentence buried in the text, clarifying their changes to ad blocking and privacy blocking extensions. https://9to5google.com/2019/05/29/chrome-ad-blocking-enterprise-manifest-v3/ They can kiss my bleep. Just installed Firefox for the first time in over 5 years - I for one, will be dumping Chrome as I use uBlock Origin.
  11. They look all right. "A 50th season logo will also adorn the top left corner of the jerseys" Is that:
  12. I almost feel sorry for Marchand.

      I see the sarcasm lol  I kinda do.. tho, All the missed passes, puck fumbling, over skating the puck, no drive for the puck. It was like the team didn't want it. Not caring who won the cup, I was really wanting a nail biter game.
