Rick Blue's Other Life
Ricky Blue
Rick Blue
is a Montreal-based humorist, singer, and writer. He and partner George Bowser are the famous Bowser and Blue comedy act. Here's his bio from their Bowser and Blue website.

Rick Blue was born in Liverpool, England, but raised in Maine, New Jersey, and Toronto. He has an MA in English from Concordia University. He has been involved in bands and media music in Montreal for over twenty years. In 1981 he won an international 'Clio' award for excellence in advertising.

He once appeared on television naked.

His life had no real meaning, however, until he began to play with Bowser and Blue. Rick plays guitar, mandolin, and harmonica, and sings in a rather pleasant baritone when George will let him.

He is also a columnist for Montreal's outstanding West Island Gazette..

Tennis, Anyone?

MONTREAL | Perhaps you have been watching the French Open tennis? Well, I have. And it got me thinking about the way tennis is scored. At first it seems like some arcane method of scoring devised by some ancient French king to screw with our minds. But it is actually very ingenious. The scoring in tennis is like the scoring in life. The idea that you accumulate points over a set time on a clock and win or lose on that basis is a less realistic way to see things. Life constantly gives you second chances. In tennis, you can win or lose a game and still come back to win a set. You can win or lose a set and still come back to win a match. You are always in the game. It can turn at any time.
