    The Round Bus

    The Super Bowl is upon us and Sochi is around the corner. If there are two lessons to learn from these colossal events, it’s that people, actual people, don’t matter. What matters is the money you spend on the gear the sponsors are rolling out. So in lieu of having an actual person join...

    The Round Bus

    We were away, now we’re back. Don’t make a big deal about it… Our guest this week is Alex Wong. Alex is originally from Hong Kong, came to Toronto when he was in Grade 3 because his dad promised him that Dragon Ball Z was popular in Canada as well. When his dad was...

    Andrea Bargnani. Bryan Colangelo called him an enigma. My friend, Graeme, said Bargnani’s play “looks like a video game glitch.” After a Knicks-Rockets game, Stephen A.

    The Round Bus

    As a frequent reader of The Barnstormer, you may have noticed our behaviour has been erratic of late. For example, sometimes a Round Bus goes up a wee bit late, ahem. But fear not dear Barn-folk. Everything is just fine. We’re working on a reboot for the new year, an aesthetic overhaul, a new...

    The Round Bus

    Well, the NHL season is here, and no one has died yet. George Parros tried to eat the ice with his face, and fighting still arouses the collective masochism in NHL arenas. Gary Bettman got booed in Phoenix, because apparently they just refuse to follow even their own franchise’s narrative. Calgary is still in...

    The Round Bus

    Well, it was jingoistic celebration week. Between Canada Day and the Fourth of July, it was a flag waving, anthem singing, patriotism heaving week of days off, nationalistic drinking, and listening to the Hip (or, I dunno, Springsteen if you’re an American.) Over here at Barn HQ we celebrated like any good Canadian. We...
