As it turned out, everything worked out fine. It was pouring like mad and windy as hell on the way down to get the bike. Chatted with the old owner for a bit, and the skies cleared up a fair amount. Managed to get home with only getting slightly wet from spray from cars - I could literally see rain all around me from some menacing clouds, but I managed to thread the needle between them.

I do tend to get lucky from time to time - the benefit of being an optimist.

Bike is fantastic, BTW. Tons of power, and very comfy compared to the old sport bike.

Ok so I just tuned in to the last 20 minutes of the Soccer match between Toronto and Montreal and the atmosphere was great........very intense game. Crazy how the MLS is growing.

Was the crowd singing? It ain't soccer if the crowd ain't singing. Could do without the vuvuzelas though.

This week turned out to be quite a hectic one... I got accepted to an university just last week, and now, in about three hours' time, I should be in a different city, visiting a house which I'd like to rent. I'm still shell-shocked by the fact that I managed to get in, and now it's all becoming a reality in such a short time.

RIP Dave Semenko

Old teammate of mine, was related to Dave, was his nephew. He was at a family event that Dave was at, many years ago, and he was getting ready for his first try out with the Selkirk Stealers.

Dave's advice to him for his first junior try out:

- Wear a bright jersey, and or skate laces, or stick tape, anything that makes you stand out in the crowd

- 1st scrimmage, grab and hang on to the puck for as long as you can, do not give it up.

- Last piece of advice, if you feel you still are not getting noticed, grab the biggest MF'er on the ice and beat the crap out of him.

Always get a kick out of that, as all three still work today.

Holy crap Netflix ****. Their auto-play preview has to be THE most annoying "feature" ever. You can't sit and brows shows in piece without some stupid preview of something you have no interest in playing. Naturally they don't have an option to disable it or even a way to give feedback about why you are cancling your account.

Apparently they started rolling it out in Jan but you could opt out of their testing program (which defaults to opt in) to disable it but as of last moth this stopped working. When it hits you is now apparently just a matter of when they roll out their newest app for your platform. I guess I could have started to mute the sound while I browsed like a lot of people are doing but that seemed like a PITA.

Close. Best wedding ever would have rented the pizza joint and had the ceremony there.

I know this. If you count them there are only 12 flags not 13. There's only one with the british flag and it's yellow so that's ON. Google missed MB's flag
