Reggie Evans of the Toronto Raptors has instantly become my newest favourite athlete in the Toronto sporting landscape (Sorry Mr. and Mrs. Stalberg). This morning I was reading the Raptors scrimmage recap on tsn.ca and I came across a quote from Evans that I just had to post.
“Right now, we’re going through a recession so people are trying to do whatever it takes in a positive way,” Evans said. “When (fans) come to the game, they at least want to see hard work. No matter if you win or lose, they want to see somebody going real hard because they’re working hard to earn a living just so they can come to our games. “
Kudos to you Mr. Evans for being in tune with what everyone is thinking. A little hard work and determination will certainly vault you to the top of beloved Toronto pro’s this year coming off the heals of the life-less Blue Jays season.
