NHL Playoffs underway, but who plays who? Here’s the layout – team by team breakdown

@dandmb50 – This is the layout of who plays who in their trip to the Stanley Cup final.

Montreal Canadiens will go into round two on Thursday night (May 1st) on CBC and will probably play on Saturday as well. The NHL seems to be slow in the playoff schedule but I’ll keep you posted as soon as I find out. Boston have the home advantage so the first two games will be played at the TD Centre which stands for Toronto-Dominion Bank, I’m sure people in Boston don’t know that.

Although Toronto never made the playoffs, now all of Canada is behind our great Montreal Canadiens.

Tonight (Wednesday) should be interesting while three games will be the seventh in the series.

Mayor Rob Ford ‘Ford Nation’ this week, very weak indeed, a fail on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE (video below)

Mayor Ford and his clan visited Los Angeles this week where he went to “Promote Toronto” but it clearly failed. Kimmel made him come out looking like a real jerk, which is not difficult for his worship, but he did come across as a good, caring guy, with some personal problems.

Kimmel’s closing remarks were supportive and Mayor Ford should take the advice.

Being an alcoholic is not a laughing matter, nor is it an embarrassing one, it is real, and if he needs help, there is plenty available and his family will lead him in the right direction.

We love that you love Toronto, but please come up with some new slogans, material, it seems all the propaganda you deliver, it is always the same, no matter what show you are on.

One thing really rings true, no matter good or bad publicity, it can be good for the city, and Rob Ford has clearly made Toronto an international city, even though it is an embarrassment to us all.

You can see all four parts HERE or below and follow the links, over million viewers around the world and tons of comments.

He’s so well know around the world now, they don’t even have to say he is the Toronto, Canada Mayor anymore, just Rob Ford, Mayor of Toronto and everyone knows where he is from.

Sochi 2014 Olympics Canada places 3rd, Well done – Men/Women win GOLD in hockey – Don Cherry has lots to say and doesn’t hold back

Canada wins GOLD in Men’s Hockey Sochi Olympics 2014 Made Canada proud.

  • Canada Olympians came through with an excellent showing at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, in Russia and although Russia was tops in the metal standings, Canada placed a respectable 3rd, just short of Vancouver 2010.

Donald S. Cherry Host of Coaches Corner made the trip to Sochi and had a lot to say but he will not be returning. He thought he would see “Women sweeping the streets with brooms,” but found out the city looked like “Downtown Mississauga, when he got there.”

Don Cherry turned 80 this week didn’t keep him silent – And what did you have to say?

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford on the Sports Junkies radio again in Washington – ‘Women love money’

Rob Ford on CBS Sports Junkies 106.7

Toronto, Canada – Mayor Rob Ford called into the Sports Junkies radio show in Washington, DC on Thursday and said, “Women love money” in reference to what he’s giving his wife for Christmas. “You give ’em a couple thousand bucks and they’re happy.”

This is the second time he’s been on the local CBS radio station and has invited the hosts Eric Bickel and John-Paul Flaim to come and visit Toronto, and spoke about his love for football.

Latest UPDATE on Toronto Star, reporter Daniel Dale suit: CLICK HERE

Here is the apology Rob Ford read at City Council this week.

Rob Ford Mayor of Toronto goes on Washington, DC Sports radio, denies offering money and car for video of him smoking crack cocaine

Mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford goes on Sports Junkies radio in Washington, DC radio today and says “it’s a lie” that he offered $5000 and a car for the video of him smoking crack cocaine.

To listen to the show on 106.7 The Fan CLICK HERE for the 25 minute interview.

UPDATE: Not only did Rob Ford say on The Fan that it was a lie, now his brother counselor Doug Ford claims he did not use heroine in an article in the Toronto Star today.

It’s getting harder and harder to know who to believe, when anyone from the Ford family speaks. His sister has admitted that she was a drug addict many years ago and it has been rumored that Doug Ford sold hashish when he was much younger.

The two brothers have announced they will be holding a YouTube show in the near future and we will be able to hear the stock answers and talking points they continue to make, over and over.

Despite all the controversies, Rob Ford has insisted he will still run in the municipal elections next October 2014, even though his Ford Nation in the western part of Toronto are all falling against him.

News media websites that restrict viewing, secret fix to get around blocked views – FREE

Toronto, Canada – The new trend on many newspaper websites have restricted viewing to only ten views per month. I have uncovered a secret fix to get around this greedy practice by National newspapers.

It’s not only happening within the Toronto area but throughout the world where daily papers are charging upwards to $10 per month to view their website online. When newspapers started putting their newspaper online they thought it was a great idea, since they place advertising all over each page. They got greedy and wanted to start charging for the online content, and nearly all of them have started to charge, unless you already have home delivery.

Don’t be fooled by the introductory offer of 99 cents, it is for the first month only.

Here’s the fix. Most papers allow you to view the start page without interruption. Once you click a story, a box pops up telling you if you have viewed more than 10 stories for the month. All you have to do is copy a story headline and paste it into another google search browser, and it allows you to read the story you are interested in.

Do the papers tell you this? Not likely, they are just getting way too greedy since the online paper still has advertising, and there is no reason to pay anything extra for this content.
