Here’s 12 year-old Victoria Grant, she’s Canadian and she gave an unbelievable speech in 2012 about her thoughts on her own country’s debt and the reasons why she thinks the rest of the world is facing such financial hardships and offers up a solution to help solve the problem. Something tells me this girl will go far in life.
I’m a massive fan of the French electro group Justice and this new music video for their track New Lands, taken from their album Audio, Video, Disco, is nothing short of amazing.
Directed by Canada the video is a hybrid of Any Given Sunday, North Dallas Forty and Rollerball and features a futuristic game blending baseball, roller derby and American football to fantastic effect. I doubt it will be long before some A-List Hollywood director decides to use this video as ‘inspiration’ for a similarly themed movie.
Two skaters help escort a stranded, exhausted and terrified deer to shore after it got stranded on a half frozen lake in Canada. Restoring your faith in humanity, just in time for Christmas.
Apparently the story behind this video is the team in orange, from Montreal, took to the stands and started trading punches with the rival team’s fans from Ontario after a Football Conference semi-final game . The team allege that they had endured racial slurs during the game from the fans and had been pelted with beer bottles.
As you will see there is no security present and the clash is allowed to rumble on for far too long. Resulting in what appears to be a serious injury at the 1.18 mark, where a fan wearing a red jersey is sucker punched and then stamped on by the players. What’s even more amazing is that local police have since confirmed that no charges will be brought.
We’ve played and continue to play team sports here at HMS Friday and we’ve always been instructed to conduct ourselves on the pitch with disciplined reserve. If events happen, which you feel strongly about, then you can file an official complaint or report after a match. The coaching staff look like they have a nightmare job on their hands with this bunch who may have already damaged their future prospects in the game irreparably.
