Do we have one or two roster spots left?

By

The 401 is covered with snow and in the distance you see two dozers working in tandem, one is on the edge of the road and the other in the middle. The one in the middle isn’t moving the snow off the road, he’s just making sure that the one closest to the edge has… Read more »

God’s gift to the Raptors, His wrath to Roko

By

Ever heard Jays fans call in to the Fan 590 after a gut-wrenching loss and try to convince Mike Wilner that the team sucks while he insists otherwise?

I don’t think any blog or media outlet could anticipate what happened just because nobody could see the Magic participating in the trade. They had little incentive… Read more »
