After rescheduling his October 20th date in Vancouver due to “unforeseen circumstances”, Kanye West pulled the plug yet again today on his October 31st (Vancouver), November 3rd (Denver) and November 5th (Minneapolis) concert stops. This time, an equipment truck accident is being blamed for the postponement, with a video truss and 60-foot LED screen used for the concert reportedly being “damaged beyond repair”. New dates for the Yeezus Tour will be announced soon.
Fans for the Vancouver concert – who had already endured one last-minute postponement – were understandably upset by the news. Many took to Twitter and social media to vent their frustrations.

Game on – the National Hockey League’s 2013/2014 regular season got officially underway yesterday with three games on the opening night schedule. The beginning of a new season should always be an exciting time for hockey fans, with this year being especially unique with the newly-aligned divisions that created new rivalries going forward this year. Questions of how players perform on new teams, or which teams rise and fall from their previous performances get answered over an 82-game schedule.
However, last night’s game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens featured an ugly injury that reignited the recent debate about fighting in the NHL. Partway through the third period, heavyweight enforcers George Parros and Colton Orr squared off for the second time in the game. As both players wrestled with each other’s jerseys, Parros lost his balance and was knocked unconscious with a hard fall on his chin. Parros was later stretchered off the ice and diagnosed with a concussion.
There is a general consensus among surveyed players today that fighting is still a integral part of hockey. However, it has sparked a fresh debate from media writers who are questioning whether fighting should be eliminated from the game. The latest questions stem from the possibility that the NHL could be held liable for the long-term effects of head injuries suffered from fighting – a debate gaining momentum following concussion-related lawsuits and settlements from the National Football League. What do you think about fighting in the National Hockey League? Do you think it still has a place in the game in either the amateur or professional level?
