My nadi is full of prana

by Mick E. / Winnipeg Jets

Om…I am a calm Moose…my energy channels are flowing with life force (the whole nadi/prana thing) and I'm still in chill mode from Tuesday night's Moose seat holder yoga event at Bell MTS Place. I think everyone was surprised that I had that kind of flexibility…I was surprised that I had that kind of flexibility!

Culture, sport and cleanups, oh my!

by Mick E. / Winnipeg Jets

If you haven't been to Islendingadagurinn, then you'll have to make this a priority for next summer, for sure! Of course I'm talking about the Icelandic Festival of Manitoba, which has been a rocking good time for more than a hundred years! Originally held in Winnipeg, the festival moved to Gimli in 1932 and it's no surprise why it's been held there ever since near the beautiful shores of Lake Winnipeg and at venues in town. While I had a chance to participate in the parade, I learned just how much there is to take in during the four-day event, from Viking combat demonstrations, to the cultural exhibits, a sandcastle building contest, art show and live music (and so much more!). For the past 95 years, a Fjallkona, or Maid of the Mountain, has been crowned, but still no Moose of the Mountain…I put a suggestion in the box!

Are we having fun yet??! Yessireeeee!!!!

If you are looking for a last-minute getaway this summer, there are so many gem communities to choose from, and I'm lucky to be getting a taste of a lot of them as I continue my summer adventures across Manitoba.

You can have summer, and hockey too!

by Mick E. / Winnipeg Jets

If you can't wait until October to get your fill of hockey, then the Manitoba Museum's new exhibit Hockey: Stories Behind our Passion could be your ticket to get through this hot, hot summer. I was there July 8 to check out all the hockey history of the exhibit. Especially cool is the Manitoba: Heart of Hockey display, which explains some of why we are so hockey crazy in this town! There's lots of great Jets and Moose stuff in there too, including some of Laine's equipment! Winnipeg is Good!

Officially kicking off summer, Canada Day-style

by Mick E. / Winnipeg Jets

Did you realize just how many awesome things there are to do in Manitoba? I've been kept hopping these past few weeks visiting some really great places, meeting some old and new friends, helping to support some amazing causes, and having a lot of fun too!

I still have Canada Day on my mind as I had a fantastic day at both the festivities at the Forks, and at the Osborne Village Street Festival. It was great to see so many families out on what turned out to be a beautiful, sunny day. I stuck out a bit in the sea of red and white but hey, I do have antlers - I'm used to it! And of course they come in handy, making me easy to spot so you can come say "hello"!

Trading in my winter coat for sunscreen

by Mick E. / Winnipeg Jets

Wasn't that an amazing post-season for our Jets and Moose?! It was non-stop excitement for six straight weeks - what a workout I got!

I had the chance to stretch my hooves back home in the Sandilands Provincial Forest, where I fueled up on my mom's home cooking (she throws together the best greens, and with extra blueberries, just the way I like it!) and time with friends. Everyone was super pumped to hear about the Whiteout and my adventures at the Calder Cup playoffs, and I'm still so excited, I couldn't stop talking about the game that I met Don Cherry!! What a thrill!! Everyone loved the #WPGWhiteout souvenirs I brought home too!
