Ashleigh McIvor

Dear Canada,

Instead of waiting for your Olympic Hockey team to justify your attendance at the 2010 Winter Olympics, you might want to focus more of your attention on someone whose actually won something. In this case, Ashleigh McIvor has everything you could ask for. She’s the best in her sport (Women’s Ski Cross) — at least, as of today — and she’s incredibly photogenic, on top of being quite attractive. If, my Canadian friends, you’re unsure on how to capitalize on her win, take some lessons from us, your American neighbors, and the marketing blitz we used with Lindsey Vonn.

That Was An Easy Million Bucks

Hey look, our first hockey post. And it only took a million dollar competition to get in. What we have here is one of those fan competitions where they invite a regular Joe down to try his luck at some sort of skills competition. In this case, it’s shooting hockey pucks at an empty goal. The object of said fan-friendly exercise was to get 15 pucks into the net in 24 seconds and guess what?

We have a winner. And video:

I wish random people would come up to me on the street, asking me to perform various sports skills for a million dollars. Not saying I could get all 15 into the empty net; but still, a million dollars if I do? Where do I sign up?

H/T to FanHouse for the find.
