Though these fine fellows deserve a commendation for their Terrence and Philip costumes, they definitely qualify as a group of odds and sods.

So it's looking pretty much like the NHL is coming back to Winnipeg.

Ok guys. We're only down by a goal. So listen, let's only take 7 more penalties and we'll be right back in this.

Game Day Recon: Western Conference Final Game 3 - Cnaucks @ Sharks
Much like the Sharks did in Game 2, the Canucks lost the plot in Game 3. While the Sharks were too busy retaliating in Game 2 to bother playing hockey, the Canucks just threw themselves into a spiral of stupid penalties.
But despite being shorthanded TEN times, and losing TWO defensemen... the Canucks were one favourable bounce away from getting this game to overtime.

Party like it is your last night could take on a whole new meaning tonight if you Harold Camping. Camping, a preacher from Oakland, California, is confidently predicting the Second Coming of the Lord. At about 6pm, on May 21st (yes 6 p.m in every time zone strangely enough) he reckons two per cent of the world's population will be immediately "raptured" to Heaven; the rest of us will get sent straight to the Other Place.
The scary thing about Camping, is that he isn't alone. Every day he speaks to his followers via the Family Radio Network. They own 66 stations across the States and they are funded solely by donations from listeners, and currently they have a whopping 120 million in assets. ( I thought the Nation rocked when we raised 2,000 to go sent Brownlee to the draft a few years ago.)
I guess Sir Wanye is going to have up his game to get more than three people listening to his "Wanye's world vision hour" Internet podcast. According to Camping my chances aren't good I'll be "raptured" (whatever the hell that means), so I and all of you, because let's be honest, none of us fit into Camping's 2%, will try to go out with a bang this weekend.
