Blue Jays Ratings

The Jays started the week off right by clinching a berth in the ALCS. It’s being said that 13.4% of Canadians watched ALDS game three. That huge.


The Good Ol’ Hockey Game

The NHL regular season launched on October 12 and Canadian teams gave us plenty to talk about. The Edmonton Oilers have a new arena, Ron MacLean is back and the NHL is buying into Snapchat.

Auston Matthews vs Everything

Did we mention that the Leafs have a player?  Fore shure. Unload the Brinks truck at the ACC.

R.I.P. Golf (Town)

In a special guest blog post, friend of the website Chris Dunne waxed poetically on the demise of the big box store golf retail model.
