Magic and HIV: 20 years later.

June 6th, 2011 by Martine St-Victor

At the time, the disease was associated to homosexuals, hemophiliac and junkies. And, just like that, Magic broke that stereotype and whether or not he wanted to, he became the face of HIV/AIDS.

World Cup in Haiti: "Why Do We Love Brazil? We Don’t Know Why, But We Love Brazil!" *

June 29th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

By guest blogger Jean-Cyril Pressoir Brazil breezed through their World Cup round of 16, hammering Chile 3-0 for their fourth consecutive win in “South Africa 2010″. Just like they did at the end of the three previous Brazil matches, Haitians took to the streets, Port-au-Prince suddenly looked like Rio and rum flowed. Thinking as far [...]

Oh, Montréal. How I Love Thee.

June 14th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

Top photo is from Herby.TV There are many ways Montréal distinguishes itself from big North American cities. First, it’s an island. Second, there is the language. Sure, many Montrealers are bilingual but en français is how it’s done here. It’s a cultural metropolis with its own definition for joie de vivre and Montréal is part [...]

Montreal Is Still Hockey Town.

May 31st, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

Montréal is Hockey town. Even more so this year as the City’s beloved Canadiens (the Habs) came so close to reaching the Stanley Cup finals, against all odds & pundits’ predictions. Tourisme Montréal asked a few Montrealers to write about their affinities for Hockey & their meaning of the game. You’ll find the edited version [...]

Why The Mike Tyson Love Fest Must Stop.

May 8th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

A few months ago, Oprah had Mike Tyson on her show. Sure, it’s her show and she may have whomever she damn pleases on it. Here’s my issue: Mike Tyson is a wifebeater & a rapist & we live in a society where if you’re a guest on a TV show, it’s to be celebrated. [...]

The Masters: The Golf Tournament I Love To Hate.

April 5th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

Okay. Hate is a strong word. But I really do love to dislike The Masters Golf Tournament. I’m far from being a golf connoisseur but I’ve always found the Tournament’s history to be quite disturbing – and no, I’m not referring to the terrible color of their winners’ much sought-after blazer. The Masters are at [...]

A Raise for Tiger’s Publicist, Please.

January 4th, 2010 by Martine St-Victor

Here’s Vanity Fair’s upcoming February cover. It’s not a different Tiger: it’s the real Tiger. The one that is buff, thirty-something, cocky, sexual and human. It takes guts to break an image that has been carved by others for over a decade. Guts usually pays off.

May He, Or She, Who Has Never Sinned Cast The First Stone At Tiger.

December 7th, 2009 by Martine St-Victor

I thought the Tiger-chatter nonsense would be done by now. Much to my chagrin, it has instead taken lude proportions. I can’t defend Tiger but I certainly can’t condemn him either. I know of him but I don’t know him. Furthermore, I’ve certainly never considered him a role-model simply because he’s an outstanding athlete: that [...]

The Dolphin Gets High.

February 2nd, 2009 by Martine St-Victor

I like Michael Phelps. Alot. Not only because of his athletic prowess and his undeniable discipline but mostly because for the greater part of his life, he was an Underdog who – early on- wasn’t dealt the easiest cards but had the fortitude to snub the croupier and made good things happen anyway. I think [...]
