A real English pub

with 3 comments

The real thing is much cosier...

This was a pub I found near the Keele University. I found it interesting to see the real thing and compare to “English pubs” in Canada.

I wonder how well punks can sell stuff...

A popular marketing tactic in London: Punks with placards.

In recognition of my 300th post, I decided to move my blog over to WordPress. I love nearly all things Google, but blogger is not one of them.

(BTW, the process of moving a blogger account to wordpress is super easy. Just setup a wordpress account, and then use the import function in the tools menu. It automatically does everything for you. I’ve noticed the only problem is some videos are not linked properly.)

I guess it has to be big since they 'borrowed' so much from other cultures...

This picture was taken at the British Museum in London. It is huge. I barely scratched the surface. But, like many museums in the UK, it was free to get in, so I’ll go again I’m sure.

The Rock

leave a comment »

My favorite part is trying to figure out what hits are legal and which aren't. Apparently, an opponent is allowed to wail on you with their stick as long as you have control of the ball. Crazy.

Tonya got us spectacular front row tickets to a Toronto Rock playoff game through Groupon. We were so close I kept thinking the goalie was in the way. After trailing the Bandits for most of the game, they came back to win it 13-11.

They went on to beat the Orlando Titans 15-10. Unfortunately, the Rock came up short last Saturday in the final against the Washington Stealth where they blew a 10-6 lead to lose 15-11.

The Rock have held the National Lacrosse League title for the past 5 years in a row.
