It’ll kick your butt, in a good way.
All photos by Ming Wu. Post by Apt613. Ottawa’s Dragon Boat Festival is getting bigger and bigger every year. Our intrepid photographer, Ming Wu, was there last weekend to capture all of the action – both on stage and in the water.
Ahead of Tuesday’s ‘Road to Rio’ game at TD Place, Apt613 previews the game, and spoke with rising star fullback Kadeisha Buchanan. This Tuesday, June 7th, Christine Sinclair and the Canadian National Women’s Team will face Brazil (ranked 8th in the world), in the second of two games against the Olympic host nation. The two […]
Can the Fury beat Vancouver and move on to the Voyageur Cup finals? Ottawa, this is a big deal. On Wednesday, June 1, Fury FC will host the Vancouver Whitecaps, Canada’s most storied pro soccer team, in the second round of the Voyageurs Cup (or Amway Canadian Championship). Ottawa earned that second round berth after […]
There are a lot of reasons why I run. Running gives me time to myself. It energizes me and keeps me in shape. It justifies my pizza consumption (at least, in my mind it does). This year, I have another reason. I was encouraged this year to participate in the Ottawa Race Weekend’s Scotiabank Charity […]
Post by Caroline Healy. Want to try something different? Spice up your workout or explore the local waterways from a different view? Why not try stand up paddling ? (commonly referred to as SUP). As the name suggests, the popularity of modern SUP likely took roots from Hawaii surfing, however it has been around prior […]
“But I thought the Fury and the Whitecaps played in different leagues” a casual Ottawa sports fan might say. “Well spotted!” I’d exclaim. Then I’d go on to explain, at length, the competition known at the Amway Canadian Championship. The Amway Canadian Championship, or as it’s more affectionately known, the Voyageurs Cup, is the closest […]
The story of Mulligan’s Golf Bar starts about a year ago when three best friends, Andrew, Cameron and Chris were hanging out and looking for a place to grab some drinks, eat well and have a fun night downtown. Not having many options, they simultaneously came up with the same great idea: to open their […]
Christine Sinclair is a legend. Her play at the 2012 Olympics and last years Women’s World Cup proved she is one of the best that has ever played. But she can’t play forever, which got me thinking…. Could the next Christine Sinclair come from Ottawa? If she does, she’ll probably be a product of the […]
I’m not a very good swimmer. In fact, I’m a terrible swimmer. I’m afraid of the deep end, I’m very bad at holding my breath and I panic when I go a little deeper under water. Diving? Forget about it. But when the opportunity came for me to learn to swim like a mermaid, I […]
Post by Jim Shortz. The Blackburn Men’s Fastball League is looking for a few good men. About 25 of them, to be specific. And, as it turns out, you don’t have to be any kind of superstar to get involved. The long-running local league for enthusiasts of a “friendly competitive” level of softball will hold […]
Put on your plaid and channel your inner Mufferaw Joe because we are going to BATL (Backyard Axe Throwing League). BATL was started in founder Matt Wilson’s backyard in 2006 and quickly gained popularity around Toronto. Since then, it has exploded, and BATL locations can be found in eight cities across Canada, including one here […]
In a conversation with new Fury FC coach Paul Dalglish, we find out what kind of team Ottawa can look forward to seeing in 2016. Paul Dalglish has been in Ottawa just a few weeks, but he’s been hard at work ever since he arrived. Since being named the new coach of Ottawa Fury FC, […]
It’s all about balance. When I first found Ashley Kokelj’s Yoga On Tap sessions online, I was uneasy with the thought of combining draught beer with deep lunges. But after talking to “The Happy Yogi”, I see that the combination of craft beer and yoga works. It’s more holistic than I initially realized and is […]
