In April of 1989, a man named Charles Yacoub hijacked a bus with 10 passengers at gunpoint in Montreal. Wholesale Timberwolves Jerseys . He forced the driver to take him to Parliament Hill. I was one month into my career, a cub news reporter at CJOH, the local CTV station in Ottawa. This would be the first major story Id cover. The bus ended up on the front lawn of The Parliament Buildings, right in front of the Peace Tower. It would sit there for five tense hours, with Yacoub and the hostages inside. He would eventually surrender—and in a very strange trial I covered—somehow get acquitted of the most of the charges, including hostage taking (this was my initiation to our justice system). Those images of the bus on the lawn of our Parliament, Yacoub pacing back and forth inside with his gun, were surreal for Canadians. Especially an idealistic Ottawa boy who grew up thinking Parliament Hill was the symbol of our peaceful country. And the place we went for long, boring field trips in elementary school. They locked down the Hill that day, too. I stood with a group of reporters just outside the police perimeter, grabbing streeters (quick interviews) with stunned citizens who all said exactly what we were thinking: How could this happen in Ottawa? We said the same thing six years later, this time through tears, when sportscaster and former NHLer Brian Smith, a friend and local legend, was shot dead as he walked out of our building after doing his 6pm sportscast. The bus hijacking had been shocking, but Smittys death was unfathomable. It couldnt happen in our safe, wonderful, city. No way. But it did. A very sick man named Jeffrey Arenburg thought the media was broadcasting messages through his head. So he drove to our station and shot the first person he recognized. And everybody in Ottawa knew Smitty. Arenburg would be found not criminally responsible for Brians death, and put in a mental institution. He was released a few years later (my re-initiation to our justice system). I thought about both those awful incidents Wednesday, as the frightening--then heartbreaking--news from Ottawa broke piece-by-piece, tweet-by-tweet. It felt familiar in the worst possible way. But not shocking. That word slipped away after 9/11. We almost expect these horrific acts to happen now. Its only the when and where that catch us off-guard. Our parents generation grew up fearing wars. We fear being at the wrong place at the wrong time, when some lunatic decides to make his statement. Nathan Cirillo knew there was risk when he became a soldier, but not today. Not in Ottawa and not standing in front of a monument with an unarmed weapon, ready to smile and pose with tourists. We feel sick for his family. His friends. We tweet condolences, which never feel like enough. I cover sports for a living. I wont attempt to offer an opinion on the issues that stem from what happened today—terrorism, politics, religion, national security, etc. You can find plenty of that elsewhere. What I do know is that when that bus hijacking happened in 89, and more so when Smitty was killed, we felt like Ottawa would never be the same…like it was somehow tarnished. But those feelings fade in time. And they will again. I was back in town this past weekend for the Senators opener and Homecoming at Carleton University. It was spectacular. I took my parents for breakfast at Dalys, my favourite buffet right across from Parliament Hill. I drank beer with old friends, and screamed my lungs out with students dressed as Penguins (I have no idea) at the Ravens game. My hometown is hurting tonight and there are a lot of questions to be answered. But dont question this: Ottawa is a great city with great people. It was this morning. It is tonight. And it always will be. Cheap NBA Jerseys . - Defensive end-linebacker Mike Neal apparently is returning to the Packers. Cheap Minnesota Timberwolves Jerseys . Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and Frank Thomas appeared to be on track to gain election from the Baseball Writers Association of America on Wednesday, and Craig Biggio could join them. http://www.cheaptimberwolvesjerseys.com/ . "That was a great lift for the staff," Padres manager Bud Black said. Yonder Alonso and Yasmani Grandal homered, and Chase Headley drove in three runs, as the Padres beat the Chicago Cubs 11-1 on Friday night.TORONTO - No single loss, no matter how embarrassing, tipped the scales. Some of the worst hockey actually came in victories, and the ugly trend was impossible to ignore.Midway through a season of inconsistent play, the Toronto Maple Leafs fired Randy Carlyle, the old-school coach whose attempts to change his own style, and his teams, came to an abrupt end. Losers of seven of nine, the Leafs still found themselves in a playoff spot, something that underscores just how uneven theyve been through 40 games.Its been too much of a roller coaster, general manager Dave Nonis said Tuesday. Its not about one game or one stretch. We felt that we had to make that change today because of the direction this team is trending, that we need to move forward and try to get our team back to where it was when we were winning those games and do it on a consistent basis.Ultimately, inconsistency doomed Carlyle, a Stanley Cup-winning coach for the Anaheim Ducks in 2007 who led the Leafs to the playoffs in the lockout-shortened 2013 season, their only trip to the post-season in the past 10 years.This year, Toronto endured back-to-back blowout losses to the Buffalo Sabres and Nashville Predators and flipped the switch to go 9-1-1 in its next 11 games.Even in some of the wins, Carlyle knew the way his team was performing wouldnt hold up. The Leafs are 21-16-3 with 45 points but havent looked like anything more than borderline playoff contenders.Because of that, Nonis said management, which includes president Brendan Shanahan and assistant GM Kyle Dubas, had been discussing the possibility of firing Carlyle for a while. A 2-5-0 road trip was the final straw.I think wed all agree weve had some good periods, good stretches, but I dont think I can stand here front of you and say that weve been consistent, Nonis said. We just felt at this point this was the right time to make the change and move ahead and try to get this team back playing like we have played for periods this season.That responsibility now falls to Peter Horachek and Steve Spott, Torontos first-year assistant coaches who will be behind the bench for Wednesday nights game against the Washington Capitals. Horachek ran the first practice of the post-Carlyle era, but the team has not given him or Spott an official title.Theres also no clarity on how long Horachek and Spott will be in charge or if the Leafs intend to hire a full-time coach at some point this season. Several experienced ones are available, including Pete DeBoer, who was recently fired by the New Jersey Devils and has connections to Spott and winger David Clarkson.Nonis said his focus was telling Carlyle of the decision Monday night, not on his long-term replacement.Theres a right way and a wrong way of doing it, Nonis said. We havent gotten that far yet. Well spend the next couple of days looking at our options.The Leafs returned home from their road trip over the weekend and practised outdoors Monday. Players came to the rink Tuesday morning and found out Carlyle was gone.Understandably, players were surprised by at least the timing of the move. Winger Phil Kessel said he did not see this coming.Ive been here a while now and we goo through these ups and downs, Kessel said. Cheap Timberwolves Jerseys. We havent been playing well; its not his fault. Hes a great coach, hes won a Cup and we didnt get it done for him.Captain Dion Phaneuf said players are always surprised at a big shake-up like this. But he also gets why it happened.In our business when you have the swings that weve had — we havent been able to find consistency as a team — and when you have a stretch of games that we just went through, when you have lost seven of nine, theres lots of questions being asked, Phaneuf said. As a team not being able to play well enough ... Randy has lost his job because of that.It seemed that little had changed over the past 18 months. Cracks formed in the Leafs even during their run to the playoffs in 2013, and they contributed to a disastrous run last spring.When the Leafs lost eight in a row in regulation and then 12 of the final 14 games to fall out of playoff contention, Carlyles job was in jeopardy. But Shanahan and Nonis opted to fire assistants Scott Gordon, Dave Farrish and Greg Cronin and even give Carlyle a contract extension.Even with the benefit of hindsight, Nonis said keeping Carlyle was the correct decision.Randy deserved to come back, Nonis said. He had done enough to come back. Weve seen him do good things. We saw him do some good things this season. Its not that hes not capable.The question now becomes what this group is capable of. The Leafs are in the second wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference, and its late enough in the season to say theyre squarely in the playoff race even with their inconsistencies and flaws.We all have respect for Randy, but at the same time its time for us to turn things around, goaltender Jonathan Bernier said. Its all about us right now.Bernier has proven capable covering up a lot of those flaws. And the ones he cant are masked by the offensive firepower led by Kessel, Tyler Bozak, James van Riemsdyk, Joffrey Lupul, Nazem Kadri and Cody Franson.Because of that talent, Nonis believes the Leafs are still in a decent position.This isnt throwing in the towel, Nonis said. We feel that this team has a chance to do some good things, and today was the first step in trying to push our team back in that direction.Carlyle, a native of Sudbury, Ont., went 91-78-19 in 188 games as Leafs coach over parts of four seasons. Hes the fourth coach to be fired this season, following Paul MacLean of the Ottawa Senators, Dallas Eakins of the Edmonton Oilers and DeBoer.Even in announcing Carlyles firing, Nonis called him an excellent coach whos capable of winning.Good coaches get let go, Nonis said. Hes a good man, a good coach and hell be back in this game quickly.Notes — The Leafs on Tuesday put forward Carter Ashton on waivers. Ashton was suspended earlier in the season for violating the league and NHLPAs performance-enhancing drug policy that he said came about after he used someone elses inhaler. Ashton has zero points in seven games this season ... Toronto Marlies forward Connor Brown was named to the AHL all-star roster. Brown has nine goals and nine assists in 35 games in his first professional season.---Follow @SWhyno on Twitter Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
