One of the truly awesome reads on the Internet is Grantland.com, a production of ESPN, where sports and celebrity come together to provide an ongoing stream of enlightened amusement, or the other way around; it’s sometimes hard to tell. The content is a wonderful mix of highbrow, lowbrow and The Brow. (Grantland is ga-ga over the NBA’s Anthony Davis.)

Understandably for someone who grew up and spent a good part of his life in the Town of Halifax, my father in his later years would get quite sentimental about his contemporaries still living in town. Nothing cemented their renown quite like the connection to home. The mere mention of old Halifax buddies was usually enough to send my father into oratorical flights of fancy.
