Jeff Z. Klein, New York TimesHockey helmets may be on the verge of a radical makeover, as scientists and engineers at Virginia Tech prepare a rating system that measures each brand’s and model’s ability to reduce the risk of concussion.

“After football, hockey is the sport that produces the highest rate of concussion,” said Dr. Stefan M. Duma, a Virginia Tech professor and the head of the university’s biomedical engineering department. “We want to produce a mechanism to try and reduce that risk of concussion.”

This is one of the stories that’s making rounds right now. I guess you never know who’s playing on the home town team. Cote played in 105 NHL games and scored (1g-2a—3pts). Cote’s last season in the NHL was 2000-01.

Trudie Mason, CJAD News — A former NHL player has been sent to prison for 30 months after confessing to a pair of bank robberies on the South Shore.

39-year old Patrick Cote caught the eye of police in May when the car he was driving broke down in Candiac. When the patrol officers realized the car had been reported stolen in Ontario, they took Cote to the station for questioning.

That’s when he admitted to investigators that he’d robbed a CIBC branch in Brossard in May and a Laurentian Bank in Saint Constant a few days later.

You know those rumble strips they build into every new stretch of highway?

Great idea.

If you’re veering off the road a little too far, they make a sound like humongous wasp is attacking while simultaneously turning your steering wheel into jackhammer handles. The adrenaline starts pumping and you get that sporty little bad boy of yours over in between the mustard and the mayonnaise.

Adam wainwright, though? He’s a train. A powerful locomotive built to carry a team on his back for 9 innings, no matter how heavy the load.

Problems with trains, though – they don’t go off the track a little bit and come back. They derail and leave a big flippin’ mess. There is no buffer. Recoveries aren’t happening once a train is off the rails… not until a clean-up crew arrives.
