THE MONDAY HAT TRICK: AN EVIL EMPIRE FALLS, ONE RISES AND THE GOOD GUYS WIN

Monday was monumental in so many ways on so many different levels with varying degrees of overall importance to the greater scheme of things… So, obviously we begin with Star Wars!

The new trailer for The Force Awakens was everything a Star Wars fanboy could have wanted. Especially those who’ve waited decades to relive the magic of an era that had its crescendo during the Reagan years. The movie looks every bit worth the wait, which really wasn’t that much of long shot considering how well the teasers looked. And really the best part about the trailer – was everything it didn’t show. I hate spoilers! We’ve waited so long for this, it’s great knowing there are so many more surprises in store once we settle into our seats.

Speaking of ending the┬áthreat from the Dark Side…

The other great moment was the reprieve Canada was handed after a decade of, Stephen Harper. The Liberal win was a great win for everyone and the environment – but especially those muzzled scientists, forced into silence and manipulation. Scientists who are finally free to once again do what they do best. Canada has a proud tradition of innovation (Banting) and finally science will be allowed to flow forward unimpeded.

And finally, the Toronto Blue Jays knocked the Royals around and made it look too darn easy!

…. not bad for a Monday.
