Great hockey story.
David Ayres was sitting by himself in the bowels of Scotiabank Arena when he got word Hurricanes goalie James Reimer had suffered an injury.The on-call emergency netminder for Saturday’s game in Toronto, Ayers got half-dressed into his gear on the off chance something might happen to Carolina’s second option, Petr Mrazek.

Great story about how an American was drawn to Toronto by Rush.
I was a 14-year-old in, of all places, the subdivisions of St. Louis when I learned about Rush.My friend Bret alerted me to this weird Canadian trio. Bret knew about them because his cool older sister
, between her apparent penchant for Zeppelin, Steely Dan and the Moody Blues, got “A Farewell to Kings.”
