I guess the Rock must always let in 17 against the Knighthawks! After scoring 5 goals on 5 shots, the Rock would go on to lose 17-12. Tough one!

There's a YouTube video of a guy doing a whole mission in Call of Duty: Black Ops without shooting one single shot that was made as a statement that games are simple and dumb now and that you can't die in the game because it wants to keep you going and that consoles are to blame, Half-Life 2, Old School Gamer, blah blah blah. These PC elitists complain about Call of Duty, about how it's ruining gaming or whatever, I don't get it. The fact is that CoD is aimed at kids and dads who's wives only lets them play games for 30 minutes twice a week and maybe don't want to restart a level 42 times or spend 152 hours crafting potions. It's not aimed at hardcore gamers, and I don't think it ever pretended to be. It's going to be more popular because it's being dumb down to the lowest denominator therefore will sell more. It's making the gaming industry a lot of money, which in turn is helping fund the other games we all enjoy, because there are a lot of hardcore games out there to enjoy. Just stop the hate, who cares if CoD exists. It seems dumber to still play it and hate on it instead of just picking another game to play and enjoy.

Bill Burr has quickly become one of my favourite comedians of all time, right up there with Louis CK. It was an absolutely hilarious show, and any time Burr is in town it's an automatic purchase.
Opening act Paul Virzi was super funny too, a perfect start to a memorable night.

Hilarious comedian Darren Frost performed at Yuk Yuk's in Mississauga. Absolutely brutally awesome show. Super funny guy, a must see.
The opening acts were actually really funny too, especially Jon Steinberg who was so funny in his deadpan tone but which I felt the crowd just didn't understand. Overall a great evening.

I saw Gerry Dee last June at Yuk Yuk's, but my girlfriend and I just had to go see him again, this time in Mississauga. One of the funniest comedy shows I've seen, more than half of the evening was spent with Gerry making fun of people in the crowd. Just a funny evening all around, and a must-see every time he's in town.
Graham Chittenden was great as the host.

Excellent theatrical show at Massey Hall by Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson. I wasn't sure what to expect coming in but it was an amazing show both musically and visually, with a narrative being done as Ian Anderson and his crew played Thick as a Brick 1 and 2.
