First, my apologies for taking a sabbatical of sorts from this blog - worry not, I still write - thus, the purpose of this entry.

I will occasionally use this forum to post things I've written, for the most part links to the sites hosting said masterpieces.

Below is the link to something I wrote that was picked-up by Deadspin.com.

Bourdain Does Toronto

Everything I love and dislike about my hometown, perfectly encapsulated in a 45-minute episode and described by Anthony Bourdain.

Bourdain's new show, The Layover, veers in a slightly different direction than his previous work, No Reservations, focusing on a city's worth, both culinary and culturally. Perhaps I'm a little too biased on this matter for my own good, as I am both a fervent supporter of the city and anything Bourdain does, but this episode is an ideal guide for tourists and Torontonians alike.

Please Read This

Regardless, the man can write; linked below is his latest article for the Goodmenproject.com - please read it and try not to get completely and most utterly emotional as a result.

This Week's WInner of The Dave Parker Award For Excellence in Excellence: These Guys

As you may recall, during this blog's heyday, there was a running featured that identified professional athletes who liked to smoke, based on the photo of Cobra Dave Parker smoking on the Pittsburgh Pirates bench. The photo stands-out as one of my favourite examples of candid sports photography.

Thanks to the good people over at Sports Illustrated for putting together this slide show of athletes who fancied a smoke. Beyond that, there is absolutely no rhyme or reason to this post, but to say hello.
