Yeah, maybe on paper Jays fans might like to think this team stands a shot at finishing with a 79-83 record. In all fairness, maybe they do, but can an impartial fan really see the Jays winning the Americal League East? Many Toronto Blue Jays fans will stutter when asked because they already know the truth and living in denial is the best way to swallow the pill of another mediocre season. Blue Jays fans would rather opt to...

Toronto Maple Leafs Mitch Marner Working Wonders On The Second Line

For the longest time, Mitch Marner was struggling on the Toronto Maple Leafs third and sometimes the fourth line. He was an assist getter, but he was not a “goal scorer”. It seemed as if Mike Babcock was punishing Marner. From a hockey fan’s perspective, it does not look like Babcock trying to assert Marner as a checking line forward. It is not the Marner is small in terms of general size. Marner is about six-foot and he weighs around 175 pounds. Keep in mind, that is small for a checking line forward. That is why many Leaf fans were...

Vegas Golden Knights: The Real Question is How Soon Is Now?

What better place to sign a deal with the devil than Sin City? Nevada ain’t no holy land. Especially Vegas itself. People from a vast amount of creeds would say to stay away from that “forsaken place” Unless a person is from the 12 Tribes of Let’s Get It On, Vegas is a no-no. The Vegas Strip – a place full of the things every Christian practitioner would hate. Gambling, lust, excessive alcohol consumption, lies, and bad hangovers with a random woman that person met on Adult Friend Finder. Gary Bettman chose this city to bestow the league’s newest expansion...
