NBA: Toronto Raptors – Adam’s Three Bold Predictions

Before I talk about the Raptors, can I just get a word in about the NBA in general? Gordon Hayward – fresh off his big move to the Celtics – is out for the season after just one game after a terrible injury, the Nets beat the Cavs led by Spencer Dinwiddie’s 22 points (who?)….

Dear Auston

Dear Auston, I’m not sure if you saw it, but last year before your first game, I wrote you a letter just like this one. In that letter, I spoke about the great things you were going to accomplish, the hope you were going to give to so many, and the inspiration you were going…

Winners and Losers of Game of Thrones “Dragonstone”

Game of Thrones made it’s dramatic and long overdue return to our television screens last night, and wow, what an episode it was.

Food: Chipotle Mayo is the New Ketchup

I can’t thank whoever invented chipotle mayo enough (probably some stoner who thought, “what if I combined mayo and hot sauce?”). I can proudly say that it has changed my life for the better. Gone are the days of, “Can you pass the ketchup?” – it’s now, “Pass the goddamn chipotle!” It goes well on…

NHL: All Aboard the Crazy Train

By: Rossy Pasternak I guess I’ll start with this: the NHL is fucking crazy right now.

The LaVar Ball Sweepstakes

By: Rossy Pasternak The other night, top executives and representatives from the worst teams in the NBA gathered together to decide the fate of the top 14 draft picks. The prize of the days events? None other than LaVar Ball. Don’t let his age (48) fool you, the eldest Ball is one of the best…

New This Week: Joseph Ember – “Exit Society”

By: Adam Pasternak This past Tuesday, Toronto’s own Joseph Ember, released his brand new single “Exit Society” – the first under his new stage name (formerly Ursa Major). Quinton Sung (a.k.a., “Quin”) took care of the production on the song and clearly went all in on this track (along with Ember). The dynamic duo has produced something that they, and…
