In order for a movie to be considered great it needs to appeal to different generations. I’ve watched a few movies that I loved when I was 20, but today I don’t relate to them as much. A great movie, however, will be timeless and whenever you sit down and watch it will capture your imagination.
One of my father’s favourite movies was the 1967 classic, The Dirty Dozen. The star-studded cast included Lee Marvin, Ernest Borgnine, Donald Sutherland, Telly Savales, Charles Bronson, star runningback Jim Brown and John Cassavetes who earned an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor as Viktor Franko.
Today marks the 12th anniversary of my father’s passing, clearly the reason The Dirty Dozen popped into my head, and each year as this day draws closer memories of Dad flood my brain. My wife, Traci, had never seen the movie so we watched it last night. The Dirty Dozen is still great, however, my mind wandered through most of it thinking about Dad.

Daryl Katz got it right today, and I believe Edmonton Oiler fans will be very pleased with his latest action.

It's early, and we all know defensemen can rise and fall with the price of oil, but Oscar Klefbom has enjoyed an excellent start to his SEL season.

With no NHL in sight we decided to plan a road trip for hockey-starved sports fans. We only have 28 seats though, so if you want to go get in early.
You will see Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Jordan Eberle and the OKC Barons for two games and sandwiched in between you will enjoy an electric college football atmosphere as the Oklahoma Sooners host Notre Dame.

Every so often, there’s a problem KHL teams face: they need to hire the services of somebody who has agreed to work somewhere else. That person can be a player or a coach, and listening to Dave King explain how he became a coach of a Russian team shows how the league typically handles such problems.
