1. MARIO KART ON ICE
The Tampa Bay Lightning did something really cool at halftime last night. They turned the ice into MarioKart using a projection screen.

2. RAPTORS LOSE
Rough night for the Raptors. They lost game 2 in Cleveland 108-89. Hopefully Toronto fans can cheer them on to a couple wins. Games 3 and 4 will be at the ACC tomorrow and Monday at 8:30PM. Jurassic Park opens two hours before the game.

4. T-REX LIPS
A Toronto paleontologist says that T-Rex had lips. In movies like Jurassic Park the scary dinos are always shown bearing their teeth. A professor at U of T says that T-rex and other theropods definitely had lips to cover them.

5. MACGUYVER’S BACK
MacGuyver is coming back. CBS just unveiled the trailer for the 80’s reboot which will air Fridays this fall. The trailer ends with MacGuyver blowing up a car with a bow and arrow made mostly out of duct tape. I love EVERYTHING about this trailer.
MAY LONG WEEKEND
May Long Weekend is here and the weather is going to be great with highs above 20°C! There is lots of stuff to do in the city. Rib Fest goes down at Yonge Dundas Square, the Trinity Bellwoods drum circle opening is tomorrow and of course there will be fireworks at Ashbridges Bay Monday and Canada’s Wonderland on Sunday.
