I factored in so many things. I wrestled with having Tim Leiweke at No 1 because he hired Masai etc. I like the Blue Jays choice because over a 10 year period the Blue Jays won two World Series, and we’re in the playoffs five times. To me that trumped everything else.

You mean the woman I covered at the Olympics and voted for for Canada’s Athlete of the Year? Yes, I think I’m well aware of Christine Sinclair.

Serge Ibaka was disinterested and rather lost when he first arrived in Toronto. But the last two seasons, under Nick Nurse, he played spectacular basketball. He will be sorely missed.

Ibaka leaving hurts. He did things most Raptors couldn’t do.

Nothing says Sunday like debating @simmonssteve's 50 most influential #Toronto sports people. Some names you would expect. Others, maybe not. Very much worth the read.

Clemson and Alabama are ranked #1 and #2 in NCAA football. Canadian receivers — one a freshman and one a sophomore — scored TD’s for each of them today. @AjouAjou17 and John Metchie have bright futures ahead of them.
