Don Cherry's in Bobby Orr Country

On July 23rd, we visited Parry Sound, a.k.a. Bobby Orr country. We stayed at the Parry Sound KOA. Parry Sound is a great day trip for the hockey enthusiast. Don Cherry's restaurant, the Bobby Orr Community Centre and the Bobby Orr Hall of Fame are all within walking distance of each other. I recommend parking at the community centre and walking to Don Cherry's and driving to the Hall of Fame.

046

Don Cherry's is a regular sports bar with a lot of Bobby Orr and Don Cherry memorabilia. It's worth a stop, if you like hockey.

045

The Bobby Orr Community Centre is a hockey rink. Again for the hockey crazy, you might like this.

004

The Bobby Orr Hall of Fame is very good. It's $8 for adults and $6 for kids. They have games and lots of jerseys and trophies on display. It's not big, but well worth the cheap price.

Anthem and Flyover at Daytona

The national anthem and flyover prior to the 2009 Coke Zero 400 at Daytona. Sorry, my kids and I were singing along and my awful singing was closest to the mic.

Courts to Slow for the Real World

The Phoenix courts have admitted they are too slow to rule in a reasonable amount of time to allow the relocation of the Phoenix Coyotes. They, of course, present the argument as two months is not enough time to present all the argument. Truth is, they ajourn for several days at a time and don't move fast enough.

God Calls Mike Ford Number

Yesterday, NASCAR.com published an article where Denny Hamlin's crew chief, Mike Ford, disputes Denny Hamlins claim of bad luck. God himself disputed Mike Fords claim, as 24 hours later Hamlin's engine folded when he geared up on lap #1 at Pocono. He returned to the track a few laps into the race and his engine folded once again when he geared up. If Denny Hamlin isn't the unluckiest racer on NASCAR, then I don't know what luck is. BTW, Joe Gibbs, you might want to fire Mike Ford for created a rift on his team and looking like an idiot.

Clutch and Grab Hockey Sucks!
I hate the hockey in the 2009 NHL playoffs. It's a complete return to pre-lockout clutch and grab hockey. And how do you know? Don Cherry is complimenting the refs again for calling absolutely nothing all game. Absolute stupidity, I call it. Do people really want the winning team to be the team that gets away with the most penalties? That game tonight (game 2 of the finals) was a complete joke. Never mind the missed penalty that led to the winning goal, but what about two games in-a-row that Zetterberg covers his hand on the puck in the crease and there's no penalty shot? WTF was Bill McCreary looking at? He was standing right above Zetterberg when he did it. Well, it's Bill McCreary. He's long been associated with stupid reffing.

Hello Blackhawks?

The game winning goal for the Canucks over Blackhawks last night looked like a game of shinny hockey. Note, all five Hawk players rush to the top of the circle, four of them, including one defenseman, goes for a skate behind the goalline. Vancouver doesn't immediately turn the puck up ice, there was plenty of time for the four Hawks to recover, but it appears only one of them decided to make an effort to get into the play. Is this an NHL team?

Let's start with the pass. With all four Blackhawks deep, Versteeg passes it backwards, then proceeds to leisurely skate into the corner. Havlat and Barker crash the net, which is fine, but Havlat had all day to try and come back and is nowhere to be found. Barker is a defenseman, he shouldn't be going to the net and engaging the d-man. Oddly, Barker was the only Hawk deep that was engaged with another player. Barker skates all the way back but fails to pick up the Canuck standing right beside him who scores the easy goal. What is the point of skating back, if you aren't gonna try to stop them. All three other Hawk forwards made no attempt to backcheck. Kane missed the pass, which causes the turnover, but the puck goes to the far boards and it takes several seconds to turn up ice. Where is Kane? Walker was the only Hawk on this play that played any defense, but he fails to take the guy with the puck and allows him to make a pass thru the middle.

Question. How did these guys beat the Flames? Or worse, were they trying to lose?
