Alexis Normand was given a second chance at the Memorial Cup on Tuesday night. You might remember her …troubled …rendition of the ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ at the tournament on Saturday night. The video went viral and she was an overnight celebrity of sorts.
On Tuesday, she got a do-over — but she only performed the Canadian anthem. She told the Saskatoon Star-Phoenix she is not sure if she could perform the U.S. anthem again in an arena setting.
“I’d have to think about. I know I can do it, but it would be kind of a head game.”

Do you want to buy Wayne Gretzky’s sweaty things? NOW YOU CAN.
The man behind the biggest collection of all things No. 99 is selling his prized memorabilia.
Insurance is a big reason. Collections such as Chaulk’s are hard to buy coverage for and the thought of a fire makes him blanch. Also, he’s already got most of the main Gretzky items likely to come on the market, so the thrill of the chase is getting rarer.
“There’s not a lot of chase left. It’s like I’ve gotten to the top of the mountain.

For some Toronto Blue Jays fans, great expectations breed great impatience.
By the second inning of the first game of the greatest season in Blue Jays history, dark murmurs began to waft from the sellout crowd of 48,857. Catcher J.P. Arencibia had just struck out, aggravating a greater sin: already, he had been charged with three passed balls in his bid to corral R.A. Dickey’s knuckleball. Two had marred an inning in which the Cleveland Indians scored twice.
Mind you, the grumblers could not have been delighted with Dickey either in the Blue Jays’ 4-1 loss. He walked four, a plateau he reached only twice last year when he won the National League Cy Young Award. Only one of the walks turned into a run. He also gave up a towering two-run homer to Asdrubal Cabrera. (Photos: Tyler Anderson/National Post)
