The Phoenix Coyotes

The Phoenix Coyotes have advanced to the Western Conference Finals in the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, to the surprise of many. After narrowly winning the Pacific Division, lots of "experts" picked the Blackhawks to beat the Coyotes in the first round. Carried by goalie Mike Smith, the Coyotes have often been outplayed and out shot, but keep squeaking out wins.

Drafts in Sports

As the NFL draft finished tonight, it got me thinking about which is my favourite draft and good and bad elements that each draft brings. There are many comparisons, as well as many differences, and I will outline which one's are my favourite or least favourite. I will focus on the NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB, CHL, and MLS.

NHL Playoffs and Violence

As the first round of the NHL playoffs is coming to a close, many people, including experts, are calling this the most violent playoffs they have ever witnessed. There has already been 8 suspensions and even more fines handed out to players by Brendan Shannahan, the so-called hockey sheriff. I have no word on this, but I assume many parents are appalled by these acts of violence and do not want their children watching.

Ozzie Guillen's Suspension

I know this is very old news, but I am just getting around to it now. The Miami Marlins suspended manager Ozzie Guillen for five games after some controversial remarks made in an interview with Time magazine. Guillen somehow got on the topic of Fidel Castro, and said that he loved him and was impressed that he stayed in power for so long. People were incredibly outraged and some called for him to be fired. The team decided it was best to suspend him for a few games.

Masters 2012

I am posting quite late in regards to the Masters which concluded on Sunday, but I're many of you heard Bubba Watson won his first PGA Tour Title. The Masters are my favourite golf tournament to watch every year, especially the back 9 holes on the final day, and this year's tournament provided lots of excitement!
