Denise McHale passed a group of runners in a Whitehorse marathon despite word of two bears blocking the route. I'll skip any grizzly puns — this marathoner won in the long run.
Rule No. 1 when you're a Whitehorse marathoner being chased by grizzly bears: You don't need to run fast, just faster than whoever is behind you.

How does concussed Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger differ from London’s iconic clock tower, which is closed for renovations? The latter Big Ben can’t have its bell rung.
I felt like a rookie NFL quarterback when I looked in the mirror this morning. Darn old.

Saskatchewan set or tied 31 daily heat records from August 10-12, reaching 42.3 C in Moose Jaw. It all started in Ohio after southwest winds blew across Urban Meyer's seat.

BC-born Mariners pitcher James Paxton is on the disabled list with a badly swollen left forearm after a line-drive shot struck him near the elbow. Ow Canada!

Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh said he doesn’t eat chicken because it's a nervous bird. Shame it didn't stop his Wolverines from laying an egg last year.
Canada’s Eugenie Bouchard lost in Round 1 of the Rogers Cup, but she didn’t lose ranking points since she also lost the opener last year. Not sure if that’s good news or bad news.

The NBA's five special Christmas match-ups: Sixers-Celtics; Blazers-Jazz, Lakers-Warriors, Thunder-Rockets, and Bucks-Knicks. In order, four stocking-stuffers and one lump of coal.

I just read a Reuters item about 100 goats running loose in a Boise, Idaho. I'm taking the high road and avoiding any obvious puns. I kid you not.
A sure sign the Montreal Alouettes already consider this a lost CFL season? The Als gift shop is selling cushions in the shape of a toilet seat.

Winnipeg pivot Matt Nichols said five-foot-seven slotback Weston Dressler is easy to spot because he’s great at deking defenders. In fact maybe his name should be Undressler.
The Sunday Times recently ran a feature How to Get the Body of a Victoria’s Secret Angel, outlining specific diet and exercise tips. Being the star QB for the Patriots also works.

After my recent puns about beer making Bud wiser and then that joke being the Schlitz, people have asked if I have no shame. Of Coors I do.
HBO announced LeBron James will host a new talk show set in an L.A. barbershop. Not saying say LeBron is losing his hair, but a barbershop is one place he should feel safe.
