Posts Tagged ‘TFC’

The First Lady and I’s humble abode is getting some work done on it today (you guessed right if you guessed a newly constructed moat is being dredged around our compound) so Daddy Daycare is lagging around with the Association and Merger dowstairs catching up on some screen time.

Why is this relevant you say?  It isn’t really, it simply paints the unclear picture of how I’m passing the time today (rather than keeping up to date with the Busytown Mysteries that my fellas are watching).  So with this in mind I came across an interesting list of the 10 greatest athletes in Toronto sports history.

It would appear that my 7 for 7 game earlier this week i Burlington slo-pitch action wasn’t enough to get a sniff at this list so please try to hide your disappointment and give kudos to the names that actually appear on this list.  The pro sports landscape in Toronto hasn’t been that great for a long time.  The Leafs haven’t tasted alcoholic bevvy’s from the cup in some 40 years.  The Blue Jays can’t dine off the glory years any longer. The Raptors have won one playoff round in their franchise history.  The TFC is setting all kinds of standards for futility.  The only franchise that has won is their CFL team in double blue that I dare not mention since the TICAT fan in me won’t allow it.

Take a look at the names that are on the list and see what you think.  Joe Carter, Roberto Alomar, Mats Sundin, Vince Carter…… Click on this link so you can cast your own vote.  Do you agree?  Disagree?  Think others should be there?  Fill me in on your thoughts.

The dog days of summer are here.  The Blue Jays are floundering, The Raptors are a few weeks away from assembling their middling team, The Bills are already training to be mediocre at Training camp and The TFC (home game winner aside) are well The TFC.  So now would be the perfect time to pass on some great reading about Canada’s (and possibly basketball’s next great thing) Andrew Wiggins.

I just finished reading an interesting piece on Wiggins on the Bleacher Report by Jonathan Wasserman and as per my usual policy I’ll gladly pass you down the internet highway to someone much more knowledgeable, more capable, more connected than I.  So click on this link and give it a read.

As for my uneducated eye I can see no reason that Wiggins isn’t worth the hype that surrounds him.  It’s likely that he will run wild at Kansas this year and be Canada’s second straight first overall selection in the NBA.

If this is the case Canada Basketball is living in it’s own golden age now with the young talent that is soon to be available to them.  Andrew Wiggins, Tristan Thompson, Anthony Bennett, Andrew Nicholson, Kevin Pangos, Kelly Olynyk to name a few.  Exciting times are ahead indeed.  This should be fun to watch.
