My favoutire Cohen song.

full of, changing of, and lack of time.

Second favourite:

If I haven't recommended this before, just double click on the youtube video and watch it large.

Third? A greatest story.

More? Yes, I agree.

I know there's a lot here, probably too much without touch.

One more, with some of my favourite lyrics of Cohen's to lead.

And Jesus was a sailor
When he walked upon the water
And he spent a long time watching
From his lonely wooden tower
And when he knew for certain
Only drowning men could see him
He said "All men will be sailors then
Until the sea shall free them"
But he himself was broken
Long before the sky would open
Forsaken, almost human
He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone.

His old teacher (CBC Retrobite with Adrienne Clarkson)

Super Sunday!

Big games on Sunday. Jeremy's team was in the hunt for a finals birth, and I was lucky enough to have the connections to attend. North Toronto Hockey Rink, just north west of Eglinton and Yonge, is where Jeremy brought his under-14 year old boys, the green "Spokes", to the North Toronto Hockey League semi-finals.

Right off the bat you could tell that Jer's team was a bit weaker... The "Avenue Road Pool Service" was stacked, but Jer's "Spokes" just had something about them that day..

A shot off the top of the glove and off the crossbar. Beautiful.

Top corner goal by #14.

At about 7 minutes left in the third, another top one, this time by #15! Ricocheting off the top corner post, the Spokes took the lead 5-4, and ended the Pool's goalie frustration.


The Pool's try a "daring" move and pull their goalie...

...only to have the empty netter seal the deal.

The last faceoff. These boys earned it.


There were no on ice celebrations, mostly because the Zamboni came on the ice about 2.3 seconds later, but the post game locker room speech no doubt gave these boys the hunger for one more. After a flask of Champagne we all sprinted down in the convoy to 801 King W, where we caught the end of the CAN-USA 2nd, and pretty much a perfect Canada Super Sunday sweep, day to night.
