{EAV_BLOG_VER:e2774a93db03a620} I know this is well after the fact, but I’ve had the chance to reflect upon Father’s Day and its significance to me as both a Dad and a son. Even though there are some who may dismiss it as a Hallmark greeting, I do think it’s an important day – but its not […]

Social media and the Vancouver Riots

Posted by on June 16, 2011 in Social Media, Sports |

Even though I’m far from a hard core hockey fan, I usually take an interest in the NHL playoffs every year.
