Montreal Dépflies get the green light for Comedy Coup

DÉPANNEUR (DÉP):

A corner store that sells a variety of goods. They are plentiful in Québec and, unlike convenience stores in other parts of Canada, a dépanneur sells beer. DÉPFLIES celebrates this unique aspect of Québec culture.

Well the mob feels the same way about DEPFlies making it not only to the final 5 in the Comedy Coup Competition but b eing so awesome that the CBC just couldn’t say no. Go Nouveau International! Go TSC!! GO Montreal!!!

Former Leaside High Football Player Scores Big as Night Manager at McSorley’s Wonderful Saloon

When Sean Leonard, night manager at McSorley’s Wonderful Saloon on Bayview Avenue, told me he was a star running back from 1986 to 1988 for Leaside High School’s football team, the Leaside Lancers, I was skeptical. Sure, he’s got the height, but not the formidable build one might associate with a football player. Too slight for the gridiron it seemed to me. When I asked him about this, Sean stated matter-of-factly: “I was faster than everyone else.” Continue reading
