This Torontoist is slowly becoming a sports fan (as if.) After watching 1.5 Stanley Cup games, (my first hockey games ever,) and with plans to go to a baseball game, I’m a changed man. The plans are to see at least one game of each sport… Yes, even the CFL.
But now to the NBA. They had their draft on Wednesday and our cuddly Raptors had the number one pick! Who did they choose… Italian Andrea Bargnani. This pick makes him the first European player picked first in the past 6 years.
In MLB news, The Jays smashed the Washington Nationals (who used to be the Montreal Expos… single tear…) with a 6-1 win at the Rogers Centre.
In other MLB news, if you know about the baseball, today is your last day to vote for who will play in the All*Star Game.
And that’s all the Sports news I can handle.
