Dear NHL Fans…

The NHL season has returned! After 113 days the NHL and NHLPA have come to terms on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Scream and shout until your voice is sore, let your feelings of relief and happiness shoot to the skies, and hug your friends and family. Once you have let you’re bottled up feelings […]

Originality: An Independent Filmmakers Game

Creativity and originality are two things that are crucial to succeeding in school and in life.

What to do During the NHL Lockout?

For the second time in six years, and the fourth time in two decades, the NHL is flirting with the idea of a total season lockout. It is still somewhat unclear whether the entire NHL season will be scrapped, or like the NBA last year, the season will just be postponed. Either way, don’t hold […]

Welcome back! Now the real work begins. It is not going to be a walk in the park; you are going to have to put in time and effort if you truly want to ditch this unemployment streak. One of the hardest parts of job hunting is finding a job you would actually enjoy. So, […]

Life After Graduation

You’re done! You submitted your last exam, gave your last presentation, and wrote the closing word on your final essay. Pencils are down, and you’re finished! Four years (or more) have blown by and all the sweat, tears, coffee, energy drinks, late nights, early mornings, and all of your hard work have paid off. Now […]

Around the World in 10 Unique Sports: Cheese Rolling

It seems only fitting that we end our journey of unique, odd, and unheard of sports right where we started, in England. We began our voyage around the world with the outlandish sport of shin-kicking that takes place in Chipping Camden in the Cotswold area of England, and we finish off with the ridiculous “sport” […]

Around the World in 10 Unique Sports: Hurling

When travelling in Ireland most people want to see the typical sightseeing spots: the Guinness factory, the Cliffs of Moher, the Blarney Stone etc. These are fabulous sights to go and see, but they do not really give the traveler a full grasp of the Irish culture. Now we have all heard the stereotypes of […]

Around the World in 10 Unique Sports: Tough Mudder

With the London 2012 Summer Olympics only a few weeks away I thought it only fitting that our next “sport” share some of the characteristics that are found in the Olympic Games. One of the great things about the Olympics is the display of pure athleticism and hard work; to see an athlete push themselves […]

As we have seen with Chess-Boxing and Bossaball (Trampoline Volleyball), combining characteristics of different sports can lead to a great new game. We love these sports because they allow us to use the wide variety of physical talents that we all have at our disposal. These types of games also allow us get away from […]

Around the World in 10 Unique Sports: Bossaball (Trampoline Volleyball)

When we were kids inventing our own games was probably more fun than organized sports. You would combine different parts of your favourite sports into one giant intermingled game with some odd name that you created. No one besides the inventors would know (or understand) how to play. These games would be extremely fun, but […]

Around the World in 10 Unique Sports: Chess-Boxing

Sometimes the hardest part of being active when you are with a group of friends is finding a sport that fits everyone’s skill set. Some people are better at the physical games such as rugby, football or ball hockey; while others seem to be better at the more mentally fatiguing games such as crib or […]
