Hey CRTC, I'm really happy for you and Ima let you finish gouging us for the Internet in a minute, but Egypt had one of the best Internet controversies of all time!**

All jokes aside, it's Superbowl week, and even though it has virtually nothing to do with Canada other than the fact that the NFL completely eclipses our Football House League, I want go give a big shout out to our hometown boys at EpicMealTime. Why? Because I will be making, and then eating, their insanely epic sandwich, "The Angry French Canadian", on Sunday to help celebrate America.

Alright let's do this...

3RD ANNUAL SCAVENGER HUNT - Fagstein

SOUNDS LIKE AN AWESOME BURGER - The Montreal Burger Report
This blog is awesome. Everything they do makes me insanely hungry. This is what Montreal needs more of. And it also needs them to video blog about the food, and organize challenges with maple syrup and and...God damn I love to eat.mmpix_20110202_Untitled-3.jpg

THE ONLY WAY TO LIVE IN A COLD COUNTRY IS TO GO OUT AND ENJOY IT - Hey, Lady Grey
I was deciding between this post, and the one about making pea soup, but I figured the last thing you guys want to read about it healthy food. Amiright? Lady Grey went snowshoeing, old school, and the pics look wonderful. However, I would be tempted to pick up the snowshoes (rackets) and just start playing tennis. Har Har Har. Just kidding. I hate Love-Love. mmpix_20110202_Untitled-4.jpg

SKULLFACE TEARING IT UP - NeedlesAndSins
SKULLFACE IS BACK! That's right, Montreal's sexiest skeleton is in the news this week as he tears up the runway in Paris. I've never actually seen this guy in the flesh (ha...), but I assume that he would jump my bones if I did (double ha...). Check out this article from The Gazette on his newfound popularity. mmpix_20110202_Untitled-6.jpg

NATIONAL SWEATER DAY - TorontoStreetFashion
WWF Canada is throwing National Sweater Day on February 17th and trying to get everyone to turn the heat down by 3 degrees and put on a sweater. They even encourage having a sweater party at work. Why not just have a day off where everyone stays home? The heat will be on there regardless...mmpix_20110202_Untitled-7.jpg

HOW A VIDEO GAME MADE HIM INTO A MAJOR LEAGUER - Kotaku
This is a really cute/awesome story about a kid with cerebral palsy who absolutely loves Baseball, and even has his own player in the latest MLB video game. If only people in Montreal loved baseball 1/900th of how much this kid does, we would still have a team.mmpix_20110202_Untitled-8.jpg

**Note: I'm not making light of the political situation in Egypt, just of their brief Internet ban. We all wish Egypt and it's people a quick end to the violence and unrest tearing the nation apart.

Howdy!

Thanks tons! We love you too! And we're working on both the video and the challenges (but I will draw the line at a maple syrup burger - the Epic Meal Time guys can do that).
