Quick Hits: Buffalo Sabres at Sharks / at Kings / at Ducks

Follow @wolfebltd Things couldn’t have started any worse on the final West Coast trip of the 2016-17 NHL season for the Buffalo Sabres. Buffalo took an early lead, thanks to Jack Eichel being a wizard. 20th goal of the season, which is a big deal because Eichel became the 2nd Buffalo Sabres player to record two 20 goal seasons before his age 21 season. Not… Read more »

Premiere Review – Samurai Jack (2017)

Follow @theREELevankern I remember very little of the old show; more than a decade ago now, all I can recall is that Samurai Jack was part of the initial “Golden Age of TV” that made my childhood cartoon-watching so enjoyable. It was part of that Friday-Saturday night line-up—alongside other largely-forgotten nostalgia, including Johnny Bravo, Ed,… Read more »

Quick Hits: Buffalo Sabres vs. Flyers / at Blue Jackets / vs. Blue Jackets

Follow @wolfebltd The Buffalo Sabres long-and-winding road of a hockey season continued this week against the Philadelphia Flyers at the KeyBank Center.

The Shack (2017) – Film Review

Follow @theREELevankern // This is shaping up to be the year of the character. Many of the films I’ve reviewed are concerned more with crafting likeable characters, rather than the instances that befall them. Character-driven stories appeal to writers like myself, especially, as we know that well-established characters that the audience can relate to are… Read more »

Quick Hits: Buffalo Sabres vs. Coyotes / vs. Lightning / at Penguins

Follow @wolfebltd The Buffalo Sabres’s game against Arizona had the feel of a gigantic letdown waiting to happen. First game after the Trade Deadline and first game after GMTM gave a speech to the team talking about how he still believes in this squad or whatever. Either way, something sparked and the Sabres were off… Read more »

The Guac Knight Returns: The Comeback of Baseball’s Greatest Character

Follow @beansycast After being plagued by arm complications and undergoing two (count ‘em, two) Tommy John surgeries, right-handed reliever Brian Wilson was DFA’d and released by the Dodgers halfway through his 2014 season.

Nikola Jokić: The NBA’s Forgotten Unicorn

Follow @9pointplay The NBA has been a bit too quick to crown its incoming stars in recent years. Andrew Wiggins, for example, was heralded as “the next LeBron” coming out of high school, and has fallen short of such lofty expectations in his first few years in the league. That’s not to say Wiggins has… Read more »
