The London Knights picked up Greg McKegg, a Toronto Maple Leafs third round draft pick, before the trading deadline. He's led the team in scoring since his arrival. I spoke with him at practice yesterday to discuss his hot start.

London's city council is recommending that seals and other exotic animals be removed from Storybook Gardens, a children's attraction in the city. I spoke to a few Londoners to get their take on the issue.

The plight of the power play

Though the London Knights have consistently been at the top of the OHL since the beginning of the year, their power play had been woeful. It has improved considerably in the last six weeks and I went to practice yesterday to find out why.

I talked to goalie Michael Houser and forward Seth Griffith to learn what the team has been doing differently.

Miked Up

I've started a new man-on-the-street video segment for Rogers TV on a show called Inside London. Each week I will go out and interview local Londoners about topics and issues occupying the public consciousness in the Forest City.

Here is the first segment.

Thus, there will be at least one new piece of video posted on this site each week: either a Miked Up episode or a new 2 Minutes for Instigating segment. Depending on how interesting possible topics are, there will be some weeks where both segments will be posted here.
