The great thing about Drake — and there is no irony in the use of “great” here — is the dichotomy that defines him. Sometimes, he is just so darned earnest, such an emotional open book. To the openhearted, that is wonderful; to the jaded, it is a bit embarrassing. And then sometimes, he is able to wink at that.The guy has a sense of humour about himself, which is a large part of his appeal. He charms you into liking him. If he took himself as seriously as it seems he does in his confessional lyrics, it would be absurd. The fact that he embraces the mockery, and even takes part, puts the hip-hop artist standing in as the Toronto Raptors’ global brand ambassador just on the right side of tolerable.As soon as you want to give him, and this whole idea of him representing the Raptors, the benefit of the doubt, the preposterousness of the whole arrangement looms again.“Tonight isn’t a Drake show. It has nothing really to do with Drake,” Drake said before Drake Night, an evening that was a glorification of Drake’s brand, only tangibly related to the Toronto Raptors’ 96-80 win over the Brooklyn Nets.

Mario & Sonic’s Sochi 2014 adventure is a muddled mess

By Chad Sapieha

http://bit.ly/1eXaGX0

As I slipped Mario and Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games into my Wii U I thought: Two awesome game icons doing a little curling and getting into snowball fights? What’s not to like?

But now that I’ve played through the game’s 24 events scattered across a handful of modes, I’m honestly wondering whether there’s anything about it that I really and truly enjoyed.

This is a deeply middling cartoon simulation of the snowier Olympic Games, with events that range from competent but unexciting, to others that are confusing and border on frustrating. It looks great, and you’ll get to take control of loads of loveable characters, but broad-smiling fun is as elusive as Jamaican bobsledding gold.

Amid the jerseys and baseball bats held in a secure room at SCP Auctions, there’s a piece of sports memorabilia that speaks to much more than athletic prowess: an Olympic medal won by track star Jesse Owens at the 1936 Games in Berlin.

The medal — being auctioned online — recalls both the Nazi propaganda myths that Owens busted with his world record-setting 100-yard dash, and the American segregation that he came home to when he returned to the U.S. after the Games, which Adolf Hitler orchestrated to showcase his ideas of Aryan supremacism.

“Almost singlehandedly, Owens obliterated Hitler’s plans,” SCP Auctions partner Dan Imler said. “You’ve got an African American, son of a sharecropper, grandson of slaves who overcame these incredible circumstances and delivered a performance for the ages.” (Photos: The Associated Press)
