  1. Just watching Game 3 of Toronto vs Vancouver from '94.  I haven't seen the game since I originally watched it live.  I had totally forgotten about the line brawl.

  2. Thought this thread might be about Blockbuster video. So in response, here's an article on the last Blockbuster: https://globalnews.ca/news/5067378/last-blockbuster-video-store-thriving/
  3. Or, more likely, they just crank up the escrow to account for the lost revenue.
  4. It is. She works her ass off. And I won't deny that it is a bit of a gongshow but considering how quickly they have had to adapt I say they have done an amazing job. All this spring has been is a dry run for next year. That is when we will hopefully see the benefits of what the out-to-lunch columnists are referring to as wasted time. I teach remotely for a living. But I have been doing it for over ten years. It's not something you can just pick up overnight or by watching a couple of webinars. And I get to teach adults. Way easier than what they are going through.
  5. I don't get my reality about BC public schools from Twitter. I get it from my wife, who is a teacher in the BC public school system.
  6. That article is totally out to lunch. It's not like they planned for the pandemic to happen. Considering public education has been face-to-face for longer than any of us have been alive, I would say that they pivoted fairly well. Asking teachers who have been teaching on chalkboards all their career to suddenly start teaching remotely with little to no lead time was a monumental ask. From what I have seen, teachers have responded extraordinarily well. They haven't been trying to salvage the current year at all. Everything they have done has been about preparing for September. They already have one and have been using it very well. Right. And that doesn't happen by not teaching. It happens by trying things out, seeing what works and what doesn't and sharing those results with their peers. Like they have been doing since the disruption started. The article goes on, but just keeps re-hashing the same points, all of which are missing the point.
  7. I see what you did there. Or at least my unspeakable wife, Queen Lisa, did.
  8. That Sportsnet image of the bracket looks wonky with the West on the right side. What kind of an evil madman does that?
  9. Price promoted to GM & Head Coach. https://victoriaroyals.com/article/royals-promote-dan-price-to-general-manager-head-coach Personally, I think this is a bad idea. There is a reason most organizations have them as separate positions. I hope it works out for them.
  10. Is this anyone here?

      I'd suggest leaving them in there for 24 hours but certain people like the elderly or individuals with mobility issues require the use of that elevator.

  11. I'm happy to give you the excuse!
  12. I was worried people might take my post seriously as I didn't use my sarcastica font.
