A few weeks ago, Andrew Markowiak and I started a podcast called LFArmy. Right now the plan is to do it bi-weekly but we may start doing more. It’s been lots of fun. Please give it a listen. In my last article I wrote about Goals For Per Game (GFPG) and Goals Against (GFPG) as […]

1. We’re currently 6 and 2, I’ve got Marner and Reilly in my pool and if Andrew Markowiak had set up the fantasy league properly I’d be DESTROYING the field. As it stands, the league only started keeping track on Monday. I’m still winning, but not by as much as I should be and this […]

1-2 vs. Boston 1-2 vs. Texas (yes, Texas!!) If you had been living in a yurt for the last month and just emerged, cold and stinky, coming over to my place to shower and watch tv, you might have eventually asked me “oh, yeah – how have the Blue Jays been doing so far?” I’d […]

2-1 vs. Baltimore 1-0 vs. Cleveland 2-1 vs. Texas 3-0 vs. Kansas City 1-3 vs. NYY SEASON RECORD : 13-8 Last week it felt like every game the Jays were supposed to play was snowed out or rained out, so there wasn’t much to see or write about. So you get a double dose of […]

4 wins, 2 losses vs. CWS and TEX Season Record: 6-4 Overall, a week…

WEEK ONE (record 2-2 vs. New York Yankees) There is no such thing as a must-win game in the opening series of a 162-game season, but after being utterly dominated by Luis Severino and Masahiro Tanaka in the first two games of the 2018 season, the Blue Jays’ late inning win in Game Three felt […]

Since we won’t have Jerry Howarth around to say it anymore, allow me: Greetings, baseball fans and welcome to another season of Blue Jays baseball. Even though Toronto’s home nine will undoubtedly be relegated to the back pages of Toronto’s sports section for the first few months this season as the Maple Leafs (one round, […]

Read my Spring Training Diaries Prologue and Day 1.  Wednesday, February 28, 2018 The whole baseball season is still ahead of me but today feels like an ending. I fell hard for the Spring Training experience and I’m sad to leave it behind. I have four weeks of baseball-less winter life ahead of me before […]

Read my Spring Training Diaries Prologue HERE Tuesday, February 27, 2018 I know you’ve all be on the edge of your seats to find out what happened with my Bed & Breakfast situation. Never fear. After spending a sleepless evening in a terrible place with a list of terrifying “safety tips” taped to the door […]

Monday, February 26, 2018 This year I decided to do something I’ve always wanted to do- I’m at Blue Jays Spring Training in Dunedin, Florida. Right now, I’m here at this very minute. I’m here on my own and things have already gone very wrong, but I’m here, I actually did it, and tomorrow I’ll […]

Hear me out. If you follow hockey twitter, or hockey facebook, or any hockey forums or chat rooms (are chat rooms still a thing?) with any smattering of Leafs fans, you’ve likely heard the phrase “The Leafs are actually good.” Hockey blogger Jeff Veillette coined the term shortly after the team drafted highly touted prospect […]

It’s been a while. More than a month, actually. I haven’t been in hiding. I haven’t been cut off from the world at large. I’ve just been busy. So, too, have the Leafs. At the time of my last article, the team held a 6-1-0 record. Since that time it’s been something of a roller […]

Two weeks into the season, and the Toronto Maple Leafs are off to a start…

The NHL season is finally upon us with pre-season play wrapping up this Sunday. For fans, the wait has been much anticipated and this lead up carries a wealth of excitement and expectation (unless you’re a Habs fan, or Robby Fabbri). For the group of players league-wide sitting somewhere on the bubble, though, there will […]

When Kelly first asked me if I wanted to write for My Entertainment World, my first response was, “You know I have no qualifications or experience whatsoever, right?” but then I thought about all the passionate rants and gut-wrenching, trying-not-to-cry-and-then-crying, brooding-in-the-dark moments I’ve had as a life long Leafs’ fan. I spend most of my […]

Lou Lamoriello and the Toronto Maple Leafs have made it very clear that they’re ready to compete. While the word out of MLSE is that the Shanaplan is still in full swing, it’s become apparent that the development of this roster has thundered past expectations and the team is looking to enter an era of […]

Despite falling to the Washington Capitals in six games, the Toronto Maple Leafs and their fans aren’t feeling the sting of elimination. A sensational season driven by a core of rookies that exploded onto the NHL stage has ignited the feeling that this franchise might soon have what it takes to be a perennial contender […]

Editor’s Note: For six years running, contributing author Zach Adler has spent the month of April putting out a poem a day. By turns earnest and wry, these poems are based on prompts (and often forms) chosen at random using a deck of cards. The prompts range from “The Grandfather Paradox” to “Emotional Adultery” to […]

The bitter cold. The biting wind. The frozen face paint and half warm mitts that grasp onto cups of cold beer. Snow, rain, clouds, or sun. People will pay hundreds of dollars to attend the holy grail of regular season hockey games; the Winter and Heritage Classics. The Classics are not so much about the […]

With baseball wrapped up and hockey just getting interesting, some might have been distracted from their religious football Sunday, Monday.. and Thursday rituals. So how is America’s favourite pastime faring? Well we’re more than halfway through the football season and it’s just starting to snow. Week 9 marked a pivotal week for NFL teams as […]

Tonight the World Series will kick off with the San Francisco Giants facing the Kansas City Royals. The two wild card teams will battle it out over a course of seven games (if necessary), marking the end of the MLB postseason. The fall championship is sure to be full of excitement and surprise as the […]

As the ground becomes littered with red and orange leaves, football and hockey begin to dominate the barstool conversations. Blood starts to pump, debates rage about whether Shanahan has what it takes or whether Eli Manning will live up to the family reputation, fans become amped for the start of a new season. The leaves changing also […]

The Rest of the Tour: The Winnipeg Jets Toronto Maple Leafs The Calgary Flames The Ottawa Senators The Oilers The Edmonton Oilers had a span of three seasons in a row where they had the #1 pick in the NHL entry draft. With these three picks they chose Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and Nial Yakupov […]

It unites and destroys. It can create friendships through the unlikeliest strangers or add scars to fierce loyalties. It has given thousands hope while bringing others to their knees. It embodies tradition, respect and hardworking values. It’s a religion, a way of life, and the air that the die-hard believers breathe. It portrays the spirit […]

Helicopter rides through the scenic Rocky Mountains, mixology and cooking lessons as well as a 3 day stay in the notable Banff Springs Hotel was only part of the gift that the Toronto Blue Jays presented Derek Jeter at his final game in Toronto. They also donated $10,000 to his charity, Turn 2 Foundation that […]

Things seemed peachy in June, when Wiggins—the most highly touted basketball prospect since LeBron James—was drafted first overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers. It looked like our hometown hero would be playing alongside Kyrie Irving and fellow Canadians Anthony Bennett and Tristan Thompson. What was not to love? I couldn’t wait for the season to start. […]
