You know what I remember, growing up in Halifax? The Halifax Mooseheads theme song. You know the one: Slap! Shot! Shoot! Score! You just can’t stop the Moose! It’s been ages since I saw one of those ads, but to this day, every so often, that song gets stuck in my head. With just 6 losses and 53 wins, the song was pretty much the theme of the season, for the Mooseheads.
Sunday was the final showdown. The Mooseheads battled it out against the Portland Winterhawks, Saskatoon. The final score was 6 – 4, naming Halifax the winners of the Memorial Cup for the first time ever.
First and foremost, we have to give huge congratulations to the Halifax entire team for their phenomenal victory. They are living proof that dedication and teamwork really does pay off.
Can we talk about Nathan MacKinnon’s title-clinching, open-net goal? After Portland had shaved Halifax’s lead to just one point in mere minutes, things were, well, let’s just say they were tense. 22 seconds left on the clock and, thanks to that goal, an insurmountable lead. MacKinnon says he may never score a bigger goal in his career. Keep your eyes on him. There is already NHL buzz surrounding the 17-year-old.
Thank you, to the Halifax Mooseheads, for bringing home the Memorial Cup for the very first time. Here’s to many more wins in the future!

The Toyota RAV4 invented the SUV category. Well, the bar just got raised. The new RAV4 is here.
Let’s talk about the look. Gone are the conservative designs of the past. Toyota’s ushered in formed headlights and taillights, with sweeping lines that are reminiscent of the RAV4’s cool cousin, the Highlander.
Remember the spare tire on the back of the car? Gone. It’s now underneath the rear cargo area, allowing for a remote controlled hatchback. Inside, it’s roomy enough for a size XXL to travel in comfort.
Also, say goodbye to the V6 engine. Toyota has replaced it with 2.5L four. An engine that’s more fuel-efficient yet…delivers a powerful cruising experience.
One thing you’ll definitely like: on average, there is more than thousand dollars worth of cool equipment added to the standard list— without any change to the MSRP.
Seeing is believing. So is driving. If I had a driver’s license, you know that’s what I’d be doing. But I don’t—and that’s a whole other story ;)
Chevrolet’s Corvette is one of the most iconographic automotive brands in the world. So when the totally redesigned 2014 ‘Vette was introduced at the Detroit Auto Show, you could hear the car world gasp in awe. What’s all the fuss about?
When the 1000-member team started the design of the 2014 Corvette they met the standard requirements for an all American dream high performance car. A big engine, race car handling, easy on the eyes. You know, the usual suspects for a Corvette. Except for one more giant hoop the team had to jump through: Gasoline consumption.
Powering through gas was not an option for the new Corvette—and not just for the obvious reason of keeping green. Because of new government regulations, a car that guzzles gas will trigger fines, leaving that car un-built. As Tadge Juechter, Corvette’s chief engineer said “There won’t be a Corvette if we don’t care about fuel economy.”
After the near extinction of the American automotive industry in 2009, the Corvette symbolizes its rebirth. It’s a symbol to the entire world that American design can lead the industry—at a better price and enhanced performance than its European competitors.
Corvette lovers, including us, are going to ask “when will the new Corvette be at O’Regan’s On Robie?”
When we find out, you’ll be the first to know… After we take a test drive!
