It really is stupid..Its not just this year..Its every year..The sample size isnt small anymore..I dont even watch or care who I play in that Champions League anymore.

I don't care about survivor either. AHL title or nothing.

Benching your worst players is always a bad decision.

I am trying my best to be at the draft and auction and I think I might be able to swing it

Scored 154 points and cashed all double ups comfortably. My alternate lineup with Antonio Brown would have scored about 135 and not cashed.

2/2 this year so far

go to Slack for a dropped list, updated draft picks and money page and team lists heading into the draft. Three different excel files.

hope she has fun

My Niece started in house league, moved up to Tier 2 and then played Tier 1 and her team was a two time National Champion. She was the 2nd pitcher on the team that won the Tier 1 Nationals.

Thatís amazing. Pitchers are a different breed. They can pick and choose any team they want to play for

After we tried out for Aurora, it was late and driving home. She had been eaten alive by mosquitoes She was very sad since she knew she didnít knock anyone out and the same team was staying intact. It was tough trying to keep her spirits up. Last night I got the email that she didnít make the Vaughan team and I had to break the news to her this morning. So she limp into the Oshawa tryout with no motivation. I told her donít worry I will drive you anywhere you want. The next tryouts were Richmond Hill and Cobourg. Yes Cobourg

Very surprise that not more attention is on 2 future stars that are in Toronto right now. RJ Barrett and Alphonso Davies.

I am also playing golf on Sunday at Caledon golf and country club. On the 600 yard par 5 is where a CRA tax auditor flipped his cart because he was drunk on a very steep hill

Well something happen at Caledon on Sunday. Otto and I stayed for 2 rounds since I had an Underpar. My golf buddy and his son left after the first round

On the 2nd round on the short 240 yard par 4 we both hit different trees and the balls bounce back. I made a nice chip on to the green and putted in for birdie. Otto chip on to the far fringe and chip it hard towards the hole it bounce once and the 2nd bounce into the cup for birdie. First time we both birdie a hole. The rest of the front 9 was crazy because I shot 37 (1 over). Best front 9 in my life. The rest was bogey golf which I am accustomed to. However on the 11th I pulled my drive into the trees and rehit a huge drive down the middle. I hit onto the green and one putted into the hole. Otto said I got a birdie. I said no I count everything. Itís a bogey

Otto is now bugging me to know when we are playing next since he probably played the best he has ever played too. Needless to say I am itching to play

Damn, I like being drunk! Not sure Im always an idiot, but maybe sometimes.
Not driving while I do it, but 'idiot drunk' can be fun.

(its not easy being a Whalers fan, we need to drink to get by sometimes)

Sorry to have these deep feeling about drunks but when I was younger I got rear ended by 2 drunk drivers and it messed up my neck for life

Itís the really reason why I donít drink

On a side note my daughter was playing softball on Saturday. 2 of her teammates mention how their dads were drinking in the parking lot. My daughter said there is never a chance that I would do that because I donít drink. Her teammates looked her in the eye and said you are so lucky



#3772007 Blue Jays!

What do we think of the direction the Jays are going and the trades? Hard to believe in 2 years the team has changed so much, however I cant wait for the Guerrero era to begin..Some great young guys in the horizon..

Are we done with Josh Donaldson and Tulo? or is there a scenario they can come back and be a part of this core next year?

The trade with the Astros is good..I cover the Astros AAA team and Jays picked up a couple of great prospects.

I don't think they had much of a choice. I don't think they traded any long term core pieces. It made sense to move whoever they could and stock the cupboard a bit. Hopefully some of the pitching turns out and they can get some complimentary pieces to surround Vladdy and Bichette in the years to come.

I think there is still hope for Donaldson to return and be a good to great player for them next year. Tulo, not so much.

It was a fun few years for the Jays. It's too abd they couldn't win a title, but hopefully this rebuild isn't more than a couple of seasons before they are relevant again.

A whole lot of people in this world could learn a thing or two from the Japanese team.

Saw that. Great to see a team having respect for themselves, the game and other people

Instead of flopping around like you have been shot when someone breaths on you. I hate the win at all costs mentality. I bet Maradona has never lost a second of sleep after he deliberatly used a hand to score a crucial World Cup Goal. The end justifies the means

South American countries are the masters at embellishment but its a problem all over the world. I used to love to watching Arjen Robben (Netherlands), until he started diving every chance he got to draw a penalty.
