When the 2013 Major League Baseball season began, the Toronto Blue Jays had everything going for them: a Cy Young Award-winner as an ace, a bevy of former All-Stars, and a healthy Jose Bautista to (presumably) lead the Jays to their best season in 20 years. But after an opening day loss, an embarrassing 13-0 drubbing by the Boston Red Sox, and a dismal 3-5 record as of April 11, many fans are wondering what’s going on.
One thing is for sure: the bats are not there. Bautista is currently batting below .200 and…
On April 7, McMaster Marauders linebacker Ben D’Aguilar travelled to Dallas, Texas to showcase his talents at the NFL Super Regional Combines. At 6’2, 240 lbs, D’Aguilar planned to use the Combines to show he’s ready to hit the field against some of the toughest prospects in the game.
“I kind of expected all this stuff to happen so it was just a more confirmation,” said D’Aguillar before heading to Texas last weekend. “I’ve been watching the pros for years and training and I know what I bring to the table … someone’s got…
The Stoney Creek Warriors have announced they’ll be packing their bags and moving to Ancaster for next season.
Warriors owner Ron Vankleef said it’s not something that happened overnight.
“We had numerous meetings with minor hockey groups and local people. Then we got talking to the city and the arena. We looked at the arena and it has everything that we need.”
In the end, Ancaster just wanted it more.
“They’re hungry for hockey there. 20 years they’ve been waiting.”
That hunger was evident this past year, when the Erie Otters held their camp…

As predicted, John Cena defeated The Rock to win the WWE Championship for a record 11th time, Triple H beat Brock Lesnar, and The Undertaker maintained his undefeated streak at the big event with a win over CM Punk.
Despite all the predictable winners, the WWE still managed to put on a respectable show that had fans on their feet.…
It’s as good as a time as ever to be a hockey fan. With just a few weeks remaining in the NHL’s 2013 season, the playoffs are just around the corner and every remaining game is crucial.
In the Eastern Conference, the Pittsburgh Penguins have already clinched a playoff spot, also winning the Atlantic Division.
Only five points separate the eighth-seeded Rangers from the 12th-ranked Flyers. With so much at stake for lower-seeded teams trying to sneak into the top eight, you can bet each remaining game will have a playoff atmosphere.
With the end of the school year fast approaching, varsity athletes had one final task for the 2012-2013 season. On Saturday night, Mohawk held its 46th annual awards ceremony to recognize some of the outstanding efforts of its student-athletes.

It has been eight long years – and seven seasons – since the Greater Toronto Area has been blessed with NHL playoff hockey. Finally, it looks as though the centre of the hockey universe will be able to join the spring dance, as the Toronto Maple Leafs go into April ranked fifth in the Eastern Conference, and five points above eighth place.
After seven seasons of mediocrity, a couple administrative firings, and a large roster overhaul, the Toronto Maple Leafs are looking like a playoff team. Led by their goalie James Reimer (who ranks…
