HOLY SPORTS where to begin…
London Lightning Tie Series at Home
Your London Lightning took Game 2 yesterday at Budweiser Gardens tying their series with The Express 1-1 – and it wasn’t easy, the game was tied 11 times!!! They head to Windsor for Game 3 tomorrow night.
Raptors Make Franchise History
The Toronto Raptors advance to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time in franchise history with a 116 -89 win at home for Game 7!
There’s something about that tag line, the hashtag “WE THE NORTH” eh? It’s our country rooting on our one Canadian NBA franchise. There’s a TORONTO theme for the 5 @ 5 today, because I’ve seen enough of Drake’s face on my TV screen, there are other bands from Toronto, after-all. And they’re just as excited about the team as Drake is…

Intense Blue Jays Game in Final Game Against Rangers
Not that anyone was watching (other than my parents) because the Raptors sort of stole the spotlight yesterday, but WHAT AN INTENSE game in Arlington, Texas.
Joey-Bat-Flip-Bautista was hit by a pitch by Matt Bush, then he and Rangers second baseman Rougned Odor got into a fist fight after a hard slide during a double-play attempt at the top of the eighth inning. Odor shoved Bautistia with TWO hands which lead to a punch in the face.
There were eight ejections. The dugouts emptied twice. The Rangers won 6-5 after all the drama.
Gibbons & Bautista feel the same, their opponents were GUTLESS.
