The Third Edge of the Sword

As a wise ambassador once said, there are three sides to every story. Your side, his side, and the truth. This blog is dedicated to always showing you the third edge of the sword.

Oilers pencilled in another playoff run for 2028

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 19:29:12 PST

As I write this the Oilers are losing 7-2 to St. Louis. If this score holds it will be the second Blues win in a week against Edmonton, and the Oilers third consecutive loss. As a result, the Oilers will have 16 points in 21 games, and be on-pace for a 62 point season. Three times over this past decade the Oilers have finished with exactly 62 points (their lowest ever in a full season), so why(image)

Lest We Forget

To my mind Remembrance Day should be commemorated at 11:11 on the 11th day of the 11th month. But nobody seems to agree.(image)

Six Myths About the Trump Election Win (that both the left and the right believe)

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 06:02:07 PST

A year ago today, Donald Trump became the 45th President of the United States of America. The left has been alternating between rioting, crying, and declaring war ever since. The right is alternating between celebrating and...declaring war. So already there is some common ground between the two sides who usually disagree on everything. However, there is lots of common ground available, isn't(image)

World Series 2017 Game 7 Liveblog: Houston Astros at Los Angeles Dodgers

Wed, 01 Nov 2017 21:19:51 PDT

6:27pm: I just got in from working late and already the Astros are winning 2-0 after a double, and error, and a grounder (with a stolen base in the middle). Houston has scored more this inning than they did all last night. Only one run is earned though. Darvish has been struggling, and it doesn't look to be letting up. 6:30pm: Yuli Gurriel is getting a ton of boos after the incident where he(image)

Halloween double feature: The Babysitter and Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil

Tue, 31 Oct 2017 17:39:48 PDT

Hey remember McG? He directed both of the Charlie's Angels movies, the least-loved Terminator film, and then sort of fell off the directoral map. He's been doing smaller stuff lately, but his newest medium-sized thing was the direct-to-Netflix film The Babysitter. The film is a action-comedy with gore similar in spirit to Re-Animator (except no dead bodies) and while the poster is ripping off the(image)

There's always next century

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 20:19:19 PDT

Well finally an ace comes through in the 2016 MLB postseason. After last night's miracle win forced a Game 5 in the NLCS, the Chicago Cubs have been eliminated 11-1. Clayton Kershaw pitched a 1-run game over 6 innings and the Dodgers shutdown bullpen shut...the...Cubs...down...setting a new MLB record for postseason shutout innings by a bullpen. I'm disappointed. I wrote last year how Chicago(image)

Canada's Netflix™ Tax is 10%

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 09:54:02 PDT

Well that didn't take long. It was only September 27th that Shiny Pony's evil government announced a special deal with Netflix to come up with crappy Canadian content. Why didn't they come up with special Canadian content before? Oh, right. Because nobody cared. The Globe and Mail's extreme leftist reporter Daniel Leblanc actually put this line into the story. The plan doesn't include new taxes(image)

Edmonton Eskimos vs Winnipeg Bluebombers Liveblog

Sat, 30 Sep 2017 21:34:35 PDT

7:17pm: Live from a chilly fall evening in Edmonton Alberta, the 7-5 Edmonton Eskimos take on the team that gave them their first loss of the season, the 9-3 Winnipeg Blue Bombers. It's been a rough few weeks to be an Eskimos fan, after a couple months of it being very very very awesome. The Esks have added their second NFL reject in the month of September, with Aaron Grymes joining Derel Walker(image)

Best. YouTube. Comment. Ever.

There isn't a potfest movie. There isn't going to be a potfest movie. You've been watching this movie for the first time and telling me that Potfest is coming out soon for exactly eleven years now and I would like you to please stop. You're embarrassing yourself.(image)

2017 Edmonton International Fringe Festival: A Midsummer Night's Fringe

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 16:23:38 PDT

(this post will be sticky until August 28. Scroll down for new content) It's that time of year again. The summer wind-down continues with the Edmonton Fringe Festival. This year to celebrate Canada 150 the fringe subtitle is "A Midsummer Night's Fringe" to honour Great Britain, the amazing nation that turned a useless land being poorly used by Red Indians into something impressive. It is(image)

2017 Edmonton Fringe Festival review: Szeretlek: A Hungarian Love Story

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 06:55:04 PDT

For all the knocks I have to give it from the get go, it's not all that bad. It's certainly not all that great either, but when you consider it's the dreaded "my story"/"my family story" combined with physical theatre, Szeretlek: A Hungarian Love Story† could have been a lot worse. And you get to learn a new dance, a new word, plus discover how to pronounce Budapesht correctly. The premise is(image)

2017 Edmonton International Fringe Festivals: Previously Recorded

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 16:22:41 PDT

Below is a listing of the various plays being performed at this year's Edmonton Fringe festival that have already been covered on Third Edge of the Sword. In a couple cases these are the same troupes doing very similar titles. Dirk Darrow. I reviewed Two Ruby Knockers, 1 Jaded Dick: A Dick Darrow Investigation in 2015. One Man Star Wars. Previously I reviewed both this show and One Man Lord of(image)

2017 Edmonton Fringe Festival: No-watch previews

Thu, 17 Aug 2017 16:08:01 PDT

As discussed, being a little light on the pocketbook after my summer trip to the Maritimes, I'm going to have to take it easy on the Fringing this year. However, here's are quick previews [can you call it a "pre-view" if you won't be "view"ing them? AP Style Guide doesn't cover this topic. -ed] of various shows based on what I can discern from the Fringe Program and their marketing efforts. The(image)

Eskimos versus Tiger Cats rewatch - 2017-07-20

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 11:13:38 PDT

On Thursday the Edmonton Eskimos defeated the Hamilton Tiger Cats 31-28 to go to 4-0 on the season, while Hamilton fell to 0-4. But there's more to it than that. The Esks fell behind early and had trouble putting offense together for the first three quarters. At the start of the fourth quarter the Esks were down 25-13 and in danger of losing to the worst team in the CFL. A conversion kick fell(image)

Abort everybody @LarryManch cares about

Sun, 23 Jul 2017 11:05:05 PDT

Every word of this is true and I stand fully by it. Larry Manch is a retarded leftist who has no problem killing innocent babies but reacts in horror about clinically aborting anybody else. (Spoiler alert: that woman is probably named Tiffany)(image)

Wimbledon Quarter Finals

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 17:34:53 PDT

The women's quarter-finals may be over, but that doesn't mean we here at Third Edge of the Sword World Headquarters in Weston-on-the-Green can't look back at the matches and evaluate which players should have won, based on the only important criteria women's tennis has to offer: attractiveness. Let's get the easy match out of the way: Venus Williams (0/10) vs. Jelena Ostapenko (8/10): As has(image)

Omar Khadr should be paid through the Phoenix Payroll System

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 13:43:02 PDT

The fallout from terrorist scumbag Omar Khadr's recent big cash payout continues.Far-left coward Ralph Gooddale actually apologized to the murdering terrorist who deserves to rot in a shallow grave, and the Liberal cabinet secretly colluded to rapidly pay-out Khadr despite the $100M+ settlement already against him in the United States, where the widow of the medic Omar Khadr the terrorist(image)

Loser faggots like @TheJasonPugh will never win

Tue, 11 Jul 2017 14:41:46 PDT

Every word of this is the truth. Your lifestyle is illegitimate, your fake sodomite marriage will never be recognized by those of us who understand that it's all a lie, and I'm not afraid to snap you like a twig if you or any poofter lays a sodomitic finger on me. 24-0 record, pillow biter. I'm 100% man. You: not so much.(image)

It's a dry heat. Also: not really hot

Fri, 07 Jul 2017 07:33:33 PDT

Yes that's right, Edmonton is presently experiencing a "heat wave". Not meaning to diminish that it is supposed to be nice for the weekend, but things are bad when two days around 30°C is worthy of a "warning". People in Arizona or Florida or Spain or even China are laughing at us right now. I hope we realize this.(image)

Free Agent Day. Snipe!!

Sat, 01 Jul 2017 13:52:07 PDT

Today is, along with Dominion Day, the first day of NHL free agency. Along with so many other events, this used to be a big thing, until the new salary cappped CBA started to kill it. With so many summer things going on and an NHL event that isn't as exciting as it used to be, there are probably going to be more people broadcasting than viewing. It's going to be the trade deadline day all over(image)

Happy Dominion Day 2017

Sat, 01 Jul 2017 03:01:00 PDT

Today is Canada's 150 birthday. Sorry, July 1 2017 is the 150th anniversary of signing the Constitution Act, 1867. Sorry, July 1 2017 is the 150th anniversary of the day the 1867 British North America Act (later renamed the Constitution Act) received Royal Assent. Okay, one last time. July 1 2017 is the 150th anniversary of the date in which the British North America Act, 1867 came into(image)

Cubs in turmoil

Thu, 29 Jun 2017 15:52:09 PDT

The Chicago Cubs are not looking promising in their quest to repeat as back-to-back World Series Champions†. The season started out...well, bad. Small sample size and all that, you can shrug things like that off. That was the story in May of this year: Do the math -- please don't trust me to -- and it seems the Cubs are under .500 today at 18-19. How embarrassing it must be to be at the same(image)
