The Coaches Corner “Three Days Late Playoff Preview” Article

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, folks. That’s right. It was Homestuck Day yesterday. Just kidding. I don’t even give enough of a shit about 4/13 to write a joke review. Hiveswap actually did come out, by the way. It was okay. A solid 7/10. Ever since then, Homestuck was bought some anime… Continue reading The Coaches Corner “Three Days Late Playoff Preview” Article

A Response to “Overwatch’s Nicest Players Are Giving Me Anxiety”

Firstly – Nathan Grayson, go fuck yourself. I have been working in the journalism industry for half a decade, and I have been around journalism and the products thereof for my entire life. I have witnessed some truly extreme and embarrassing takes from the “verified” “professional” types, from CNN to Fox and Friends to Carles… Continue reading A Response to “Overwatch’s Nicest Players Are Giving Me Anxiety”

Germany 4 – 3 Canada

The world often doesn’t make sense, and it seems that the absolutely inexplicable becomes more commonplace with each passing moment. A D-List reality TV star became the leader of the free world. The media now uses the word “trolling” to describe international espionage. Just a few short months after Kim Jong Un threatened nuclear war,… Continue reading Germany 4 – 3 Canada

The Top 5 Things I Learned From Watching All Of The “Death Stranding” Trailers On Hard Drugs

Hideo Kojima. Where do I even start? An absolute visionary in his field, and one of the most clear-cut examples of why anyone should even take the “video games are art” discourse remotely seriously. Kojima is best known for his work on the Metal Gear Solid series, and some other stuff too, I think. I… Continue reading The Top 5 Things I Learned From Watching All Of The “Death Stranding” Trailers On Hard Drugs

Last Take #5 – A Eulogy for the Cubs and Yankees

Two of my favourite types of columns in the sports journalism world are “why your team sucks” and eulogy columns for whoever has taken the biggest and most highly publicized L in the playoffs recently. I wrote a particularly scathing take on legend-turned-embarrassment Phil Jackson over the summer, and it was the particular kind of… Continue reading Last Take #5 – A Eulogy for the Cubs and Yankees

Last Take #4 – Oh Lore?

I forgot it was Monday and I’m kinda under the weather so here’s the lore for a cat named Pixel. The being that is currently known as Pixel has incredibly complex and trans-universal origins. The original Pixel was, contrary to popular belief, an actual cat. He was being held captive by the Rats from Bad… Continue reading Last Take #4 – Oh Lore?

Last Take #3 – Line Coaching

The word “Line” can apply to a lot of different concepts in sports, but we’re going to be focusing today on the Miami Dolphins offensive line coach I talked about last week. Remember? The guy who was caught on video snorting a “white powder” (which I’m going to just call coke, because c’mon man. It’s… Continue reading Last Take #3 – Line Coaching

Coaches Corner Presents: Last Take #1 – The Leafs, Journalistic Integrity, and Coaches’ Origin Story

Wow. It’s sure been awhile, hasn’t it? Since May? 4 Months? If I owed any of you anything, I’d give you an explanation. Well, frankly, it’s just been a very busy summer for me. I moonlighted as an NBA journalist, wrote most of a novel, and had a whirlwind vacation to my favourite city in… Continue reading Coaches Corner Presents: Last Take #1 – The Leafs, Journalistic Integrity, and Coaches’ Origin Story

A Bold Re-Gifting – The Pope Just Gave Donald Trump A Copy Of Undertale

If anything, 2016 will go down in history as the year that shit just plain stopped making sense. About a year ago, for some reason that I have not been able to determine despite hours of research, his holiness The Pope invited a bunch of youtubers to the goddamn Vatican. This was generally regarded as… Continue reading A Bold Re-Gifting – The Pope Just Gave Donald Trump A Copy Of Undertale

Stand Witness – The Leafs, Dart Guy, and a eulogy for some other losers

Two seasons ago when Mike Babcock left the Detroit Red Wings to become the highest paid coach in NHL history for the worst team in the league, I have to admit I did not see a light at the end of that tunnel. The Toronto Maple Leafs being terrible has been a constant since, well,… Continue reading Stand Witness – The Leafs, Dart Guy, and a eulogy for some other losers
