Sunday Events (Rain or Shine): SERVE Volleyball Tournament, Orchestrated Film Classic

Posted by Andrés / August 6, 2011

20110806_servevolleyball.jpgThe forecast for tomorrow is uncertain: 40-60% chance of scattered thundershowers. Don't let this uncertainty stop you from enjoying some of the tail-end summer activities in the city. Located just near the tam-tams at Jeanne-Mance park, on the East side of Parc Avenue, are the city's public volleyball courts. For its sixth year, Head & Hands has organized SERVE, a volleyball tournament in which about 15 bars/bistros are competing to raise funds for The Sense Project.

Photo Essay: MTL Rock'n'Bull Rodeo

Posted by Jer / June 7, 2011

Montreal Rock'n'Bull Rodeo - No Bull Your eyes do not deceive you. You read the headline right. The rodeo has come to town. We have proof, in pictures. This past weekend, Parc Jarry was transformed for the Rock'n'Bull Rodeo, complete with a "western" village. Lucky for us, recent Concordia political science grad David Vilder was there, camera in hand. David claims he's self-taught behind the lens and that he's only been at it for the last 2 years. But judging by the shots (and his other photo-journalistic work), we think he's being a bit modest. Get out your cowboy hat and a bag of ice, and enjoy David's photos.

Habs Win! Get ready for late-night honking and flag-waving as Playoff season approaches

Posted by Andrés / April 5, 2011

20110405_canadiens.jpgThe Canadiens are in the playoffs.* Tonight's 2-1 win against last year's Stanley Cup champions, the Chicago Blackhawks, ensures the red-white-and-blue will play in the first round. Who they will play is now up to the next two games. If the standings remain as they are, they face their arch-rivals, the Boston Bruins. Such a meeting in the first round would surely be filled with drama: amplified by the Chara/Pacioretty affair earlier this year.

Injuries, Comebacks & Goalies, Oh My! The Canadiens survive multiple hurdles

Posted by Andrés / January 18, 2011

20110118_canadiens.jpgThe caption here could likely read 'When Goalies Attack!'. That's exactly what happened last Saturday in a game versus the New York Rangers. In fact, if you watched any of the last three Canadiens games, you've been privy to some rather odd and rare occurrences - rabid leaping goalies included. In the last four days, the Habs played three games and are up another 5 points. Not bad considering the last two were back-to-back and clearly exhausting games for the team.

Habs rally in back-to-back comeback wins

Posted by Andrés / January 9, 2011

20110109_canadiens.jpgGo Habs go! The last three words from my previous post have borne two victories. The first against the Pittsburgh Penguins was in large part thanks to Carey Price. Malkin & co. came on strong despite Sidney Crosby's absence and managed to outshoot the Habs 32-23. The match was oddly reminiscent of last year's playoffs as it was a heavy grind as opposed to skill that eked out a win. It was a difficult thing to do considering Gorges is now out for the season. Pittsburgh took the lead in the first. After a second period goal by Pouliot the game went to third and overtime periods - both goalless. It took a fifth shoot-out attempt for Pouliot to double his score with a beautiful deke and puck slide to the right of the Pittsburgh goalie. This was the Canadiens' first shoot-out round of the season.

20110103_canadiens.jpgFor those casual hockey fans or newcomers to the city, I've written this brief sum-up of our red-white-and-blue's performance for the 2010-2011 season. In brief, it was a high first few months and a low last ten games, but us fans are still holding onto hope for a rebound.
