Barks over Bras.

August 17th, 2009 by Martine St-Victor

Shamed NFL player Michael Vick had barely enough time to ditch his prison jumpsuit that he was already granting 60 Minutes his first post-jail interview. Prepped and ready for a barrage of questions (albeit quite softball-like ones), Vick appeared somewhat remorseful and well trained by PR gurus. It’s an exercise we’re used to since we’ve [...]

Bleeding Red, White & Blue.

April 16th, 2009 by Martine St-Victor

If you live in Montreal, you are a Montrealer no matter where you were born. Montrealers have the same religion: hockey, no matter the name of the God they worship. The City’s hockey team, The Canadiens (also called the Habs), are celebrating their 100th anniversary this year. The Habs made it to the playoffs and [...]

Deadbeat Dads Are So Passé.

March 30th, 2009 by Martine St-Victor

Watching Steve Kroft interview Lebron James on 60 minutes, my rage surpassed my amazement. Amazed because of course, we all know how great King James is. Not only on the basketball court but because he’s proven to be a savvy, successful & generous businessman who has not only understood the old boys’ network but has [...]

Advertisement On The Podium.

August 14th, 2008 by Martine St-Victor

Watching the Olympics, it’s easy to get lost between endorsements and products placements as both Athletes and venues are draped in logos and brands. Commercials for the Olympics however, sometimes manage to capture the depth of athletes’ dedication and sacrifice without shoving logos down our throats.My gold medal goes to Nike and the silver, to [...]

Still No Cajones.

July 10th, 2008 by Martine St-Victor

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has confirmed he will not attend the Opening Ceremonies at next month’s Beijing Olympics. If your athletes are going and China is one of your trade partners, what are you trying to prove? You’re still a pussy but on top of that, now you’re rude.

Woof.

August 23rd, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

I’m sick to my stomach. Although I’ve already posted my view on the Michael Vick affair, the matter has only gotten worse since that post (see July 18th Post). Yes, Michael Vick was barbaric and despicable but the plausible sentence of over a year in jail and a possible lifetime ban from the NFL is [...]

Pierre de Coubertin is somersaulting in his grave

August 8th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

The hype has started. The commercials are rolling. The countdown is on. The 2008 Beijing Olympics are a year away. I applaud and marveled at China’s economic progressive domination but the buck stops there. The country is still one of the most oppressive regimes on Planet Earth and holding the Olympic Games there will only [...]

Aaaarrrgh!

July 18th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

Multi-talented athlete Michael Vick has been indicted and will possibly be arrested for allegedly keeping a dog fighting ring for over 6 years. These are despicable charges for despicable acts, if true. Regardless, I find the media’s attention on this matter to be loathsome. No, Michael Vick cannot be immune to scrutiny because of his [...]

The Problem with Barry

July 12th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

Barry Bonds is an all-star baseball player. His lineage alone makes him baseball royalty and his career is tattooed with a slew of broken records. All eyes are on Barry now as he is on the verge of breaking the mother of all records: Hank Aaron`s number of career home runs. Like many high-profiled athletes [...]

For the Venus in You

July 10th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

An avid tennis watcher for over two decades, the Wimbledon tournament always represents for me a sort of Christmas and New Year’s Eve rolled up in a traditions-draped exceptional calibre two-week tennis event. Although the occasional glimpses of gorgeous and well-preserved Bjorn Borg sitting in the bleachers would have sufficed, Venus Williams` 4th Wimbledon victory, [...]

Obvious vs. Subtle

June 19th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

In what was one of the longest hours in recent TV history, NBC christened “Age of Love”, the network’s answer to ABC’s “The Bachelor”. NBC’s version has, I must admit, a few more bells and whistles. For one, the prey is not some unknown genetically blessed thirty-year old. It is (drum roll, please) Mark Philippoussis [...]

Engines and Good Genetics

June 11th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

Montreal is freshly out of one its best events: the F1 Grand Prix. A weekend of parties galore and of celebrity sightings. A time to hit the streets, the restos and terraces and for just a weekend, share the glamour of what only a handful of other cities in the World can brag about: having [...]

Ladies: Start Your Engines

April 18th, 2007 by Martine St-Victor

Got my first Formula 1 related party invite yesterday. Though I’m an avid sports amateur, it’s been a while since I’ve been excited by any of the Formula One races. This season however, I must admit that a little eye candy named Lewis Hamilton has made me a believer again. Want to know when he’ll [...]
