Dude News: January 10th, 2017

RIP Victory, Hello Bronco.

…I’m a big believer in opening with the bad news and closing with some good news. Apologies if you prefer the opposite order, but that’s how you’re getting it today.

Bad news? Polaris is shutting down Victory Motorcycles: https://goo.gl/2txjgD

Good news? The Ford Bronco is officially coming back: https://goo.gl/M2mW3t

Two Big Rock Tours, Zero Alberta Dates

…two big bands announced big tours yesterday, but neither have plans to enter Alberta, unfortunately. I know the previous sentence breaks my earlier mould of delivering bad news before good, but the fact that Green Day AND U2 are skipping Alberta (for now) just isn’t good news.

Sources tell Minneapolis Star Tribune that NHL teams will only have home/road jerseys next season - no alternates. https://t.co/IOrb0GNYpM pic.twitter.com/iwMNxDC67I

That trailer was pretty vague, so here’s a bit of a better write-up on why you should take a run at Black Mirror: https://goo.gl/So4WBo
