Underdog ’89 Petes never quit

Reunion for team on Saturday night

Canadian Olympic hockey coach Mike Babcock recently said a team which wins a championship walks together forever.

That’s exactly how members of the Peterborough Petes’ 1989 OHL championship squad feel.

While some haven’t seen each other in many years, it will be like they were never apart when the Petes honour the 20th anniversary of their victory prior to Saturday’s game against the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors at 7 p.m. at the Memorial Centre.

Andy MacVicar, now a school liaison officer with the Halifax police, played on a line with the ’89 team’s marquee names — Mike Ricci and Tie Domi.


Congratulations to all Canadian athletes and participants from Vancouver’s Winter Olympics.

A day to promote good sportsmanship across the USA

Today is National Sportsmanship Day, a celebration of what’s right with sports. This is the 20th annual event as administered by the Institute for International Sport at the University of Rhode Island.

NSD theme — Competitive Self-Restraint. The theme is taken from NSD founder Dan Doyle’s highly acclaimed The Encyclopedia of Sports Parenting. Competitive self-restraint means competing hard but maintaining one’s self-control and playing within the rules.

As part of the celebration, students from elementary, middle and high schools, as well as colleges and universities, were invited to write essays of 500 words or less which address a sportsmanship theme.

The Institute estimates that around 15,000 schools will recognize Sportsmanship Day in some way.

Leafs in seventh heaven

BOSTON-During this remarkable, rather stunning, seven-game streak the Maple Leafs are riding, they have won some with offence, they have baffled opponents with smart defence and they have gutted out victories with gritty determination.

Chalk up last night’s win to ruthless efficiency.

In what was billed as a showdown for first place in the Northeast Division, Toronto simply rolled over the hometown Bruins, shredding former Leafs netminder Felix Potvin for six goals en route to 6-0 pasting.

Feeling punchy

The Toronto Maple Leafs’ Tie Domi is as energetic off the ice as he is on.

It was hard to decide which garnered more attention: the striking Magna clubhouse or the glistening new, candy apple red Ferrari Spider that was parked in a select spot in front of it. It shouldn’t have come as a surprise that the owner turned out to be Tie Domi, someone used to making heads spin around on prominent stages.
