Ferguson, Missouri, USA – After eleven days of unrest in the small community of Ferguson (20,000) a suburb of St. Louis protesters have finally made the decision to stay home because the large numbers of armed security forces and the National Guard.

It all started last Saturday when an unarmed 18-year-old black man was shot dead during the daytime in a residential street just off the main drag.

Michael Brown dead

Not known when the murdered young man Michael Brown had a scuffle at a local variety store where he was seen on video tape allegedly stealing about $40 of cigars and strong arming (store video below) the store clerk while he was leaving the store.

He was eventually stopped by officer Darren Wilson (28) a six-year veteran of Ferguson Police P.D. who is now on paid leave. He has said he originally stopped them for walking down the middle of the street, but the officer then realized he might be the person the radio said had recently robbed (10 minutes earlier) a store of cigars. He got in a struggle with Brown and finally shot him dead with six-gun shots.

For some unknown reason The Furguson, Missouri Police Department website in down right now, and you can view it HERE, which is the Wikipedia website, and we don’t know when their home page will be open.

They may be hiding under their desks, but I think they are packing their bags, because I’m sure the force, 53 officers of which only 3 are black, will soon be shutdown and proper more trained officers will be brought in to stop  harassment of the fine residents of Ferguson.

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?

 

 

 

Rob Ford tackles councillor at Toronto City Hall

The never ending childs play continues at Toronto City Council as Mayor Ford mimics another councillor drinking and driving and gets caught by the teacher.

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford on SNL ‘Saturday Night Live’ appearing LIVE on CNN’s Anderson Cooper Monday night, will he resign?

Toronto, Canada – November 17/2013 – Toronto’s mayor Rob Ford has become an international celebrity for all the wrong reasons, as he was showcased last night on SNL (Saturday Night Live)

Bobby Moynihan played the part of Mayor Rob Ford perfectly. However the skit was so real Moynihan injured his ankle and was unable to attend the red carpet screening of his new movie Delivery Man, Sunday night.

He just attended a taping of his new TV show Ford Nation today at Sun News Network in downtown Toronto. The show will premiere on Toronto area channels and across Canada Monday night at 8 p.m.

He has also been scheduled to appear LIVE on CNN’s Anderson Cooper Monday night at 8 p.m. Cooper will no doubt let him get away with anything, as he usually asks the tough questions.

Ford has a tough day ahead as he is scheduled to attend City Council Monday as the full council will be in attendance and they plan on further restricting the powers of the mayor.

After he admitted smoking crack cocaine last week and the revelations of his “drunken stupor’s” the council has been on a constant witch hunt to remove him as Mayor but it’s not possible.

The Municipal Act/City of Toronto Act, does not allow for impeachment or recall and the only way he can currently be removed from office is if he resigns or is convicted and sentenced to a jail term.

Rob Ford UPDATE: Toronto Mayor ‘Eats lots of pu$$y at home’ uncensored ‘Pu$$y’ video

Toronto, Canada – November 15/2013 – Self confessed crack cocaine user Toronto Mayor Rob Ford has had a bad couple of weeks, and he admits, it’s all his own doing. But he has no plans on resigning or stepping aside for any reason. He even plans on starting his next election campaign for the mayoral race in October 2014 in January, if you can believe it.

He admits, if he was not mayor, and some other councillor did what he was doing, he would not hesitate to take action against them in the way his fellow councillors are coming against him. Friday at City council, they almost unanimously voted (passed 40-2) to have powers taken away from him as Mayor. The two votes against, were the Ford brothers.

Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair ‘disappointed’

According to Toronto city rules, the mayor cannot be removed from office unless he is convicted and sentenced of a criminal office while serving as mayor. Unlike many American mayors, Toronto’s mayor is not the head of the Police Department and has no say on their operations.

He has been requested by Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair to answer questions about his part-time driver who has been charged with extortion in the case of the infamous ‘crack smoking video.’ He (Ford) flatly refused to be questioned by the police.

He also reported he is starting a new show on SunTV Monday night along with his younger brother councillor Doug Ford just after finishing his highly rated radio show on CFRB Radio in Toronto, last week.

Coaches Corner (Don Cherry) He’s okay with visors, yeah right, not true. Was he forced to say that?

On Coaches Corner Saturday night Don Cherry said he’s okay with players wearing visors as Patrick Kane on the left of Chicago Blackhawks.

But was he told by higher-ups in HNIC (Hockey Night in Canada) that he had to change his view on visors? Since many times before he has complimented players who do not wear visors, as “look at him no visor” as if a player not wearing a visor is some sort of ‘real man’ which is very far from the truth.

Below you can see what Cherry had to say in 2011, about visors which got him into trouble again, and his dislike for Europeans and French Canadians.

Is this what a ‘real man’ looks like?

Cherry always speaks his mind, at least when he is told to change it. He’s a good broadcaster and we like him, but over the years he has been told to stop certain things and he complies. Many years ago he was a heavily against European players in the NHL and it seems he has conceded that, and now encourages Canadian and Toronto players when he gets the chance.

Players you are willing to take advice from this guy?

It’s been reported that about 75% of NHL players wear visors and the ones that do not are,  ‘real men?’

I don’t think so, they are wrongly following  the lead of Don Cherry, and in the worst case scenario could very easily lose an eye.  If they do, they could end their career, and would be sorry to admit it.

The simple answer to this problem, is make it mandatory for anyone coming from the minors to wear a visor since all players are now required to wear visors in the minor junior leagues. They have worn face protection since they were tykes.

Check out some of the other postings about what Don Cherry has had to say,    just click HERE.

For some very strange reason people, players, reporters think getting hit in the eye is a joke, and funny. It’s very far from that and could be career ending. I just don’t understand what is funny about getting hit in the eye, when you have the ability to prevent it with a piece of very efficient equipment called a visor. Below you will see the interview of Chris Pronger who received such an injury, which could have been 100% preventable.
