THEME



"Face it: No league that has endured Terrell Owens and Randy Moss is going to have a problem with Subban or Ho-Sang, who are both bright, articulate young men. Any student of obnoxious jerkitude has to be wondering how Johnny Manziel gets away with it, when a player like Subban can’t raise an eyebrow without creating a firestorm.

The answer is simple: Manziel is white and he plays in the NFL, not the hidebound NHL, where change comes at glacial speed. (See fighting, for instance, and the decades-long effort to do away with it.)

Speak up for yourself, as Ho-Sang did, and the sizable Cro-Magnon segment of the hockey media (the ones who haven’t liked anything since Clarence Campbell was king) will try to crush you. Show a little flash and dash, as Subban did during his rookie season, and cretins from Mike Richards to Don Cherry are lining up to slap you down.

With Ho-Sang, it’s been a little uglier than a slap-down. Reports had Ho-Sang on the Do Not Draft list of many teams heading into this year’s NHL draft before the New York Islanders selected the forward 28th overall. Now if he had a string of arrests on his record, or positive tests for drugs (performance-enhancing or otherwise) you could understand that.

But the only rap against Ho-Sang is, apparently, that he’s a square peg in the round-peg world of the NHL, the most conformist league in the universe. The league is privately run, however — not much we can do about attitudes except to work to change them by degrees.

Emily Blunt on Rita Vrataski: 

She wasn’t this kind of butch woman, she had gotten to where she was by being savvy and intelligent and determined, and I think that’s what excited me – the spirit she had, the chutzpah she had (laughs), and courage she had. She’s an incredibly courageous character. For me the heart of this film is determination and the perseverance of the human spirit. And I think it’s about doing the right thing as well.(x)

many are the days I’ve wanted to cease
lay myself down and find some relief
heavy is the head that gets no sleep
we carry our lives around in our memories
