Happy 10th Anniversary to the iPhone. And it has changed my life big time.
Ten years ago, I got my news, weather and sports via television, radio, newspaper (the actual print copy) and on the Internet via the desktop or laptop computer. Now, I can get that information on my phone on an instant basis. Little to no need to watch the evening newscast or buy the printed copy of the newspaper in the morning. So much information at your fingertips today.
Going forward, I expect more things to be affected by the iPhone. The digital camera could be obsolete as each version of the iPhone produces a better camera with superior picture quality. Heck, the iPhone 7 today does a great job in taking phot...
The 2017 NCAA Basketball Tournament is going to be exciting and fun to watch. Hopefully there will be a couple of upsets and some close and intense games. I am especially looking forward to watching the future stars who will be wearing an NBA uniform next season : Josh Jackson (Kansas), Lonzo Ball (UCLA) and Jayson Tatum (Duke) to name a few.
My Final Four picks:
Duke (East region)
And my championship pick: Kansas
Enjoy March Madness everyone!
The 2016-17 NHL season is approaching the homestretch and the playoff races are intensifying. This is true for my home team in the Toronto Maple Leafs. As of February 10, the Leafs are in a playoff position in the Eastern Conference, in 3rd place in the Atlantic division with 53 points. The Leafs are lead by a super rookie in Auston Matthews and a great coach in Mike Babcock. The final 29 games are going to be fun and let's see if they can make it.
Go Leafs Go!
The 2016-17 NBA season is past the halfway point and the races for playoff spots in both conferences is heating up.
In the East, Cleveland is on top, but Boston, Toronto, Atlanta and a few other teams are battling for homecourt advantage in the first round.
In the West, Golden State is the cream of the crop, but the race for the 8th and final playoff spot is intense. The Denver Nuggets currently hold the final spot, but the Minnesota Timberwolves and Andrew Wiggins are only 3 games back. They have won 8 out of their last 11 games and are gaining momentum heading into February.
Good luck to all teams trying to make or solidify a playoff position. It is going to be a grind, but may the bes...
Thank you very much for your support of this letter messaging phenomenon we call "lettrs."
Andrew Wiggins will soon be activating his autograph campaign and I know he is equally as appreciative as I am for your loyalty and contribution to the growth of our company. It is inspiring to me to see such interest from places like Toronto Canada.
Congratulations on being an early adopter to the pioneering of authentic autographs in a mobile medium.
Best, signed an original,
What a game between the Golden State Warriors and the Toronto Raptors yesterday at the Air Canada Centre! The Warriors managed to win and stay undefeated so far this season. Stephen Curry and Kyle Lowry, two of the best point guards in the NBA, went at it hard. Curry had 44 points while Lowry scored a career high 41. This was the best regular season game I attended. The atmosphere inside the ACC was electric.
Dear Paris, France
The entire world has your support during this time of mourning. The terrible situation that occurred yesterday will strengthen the resolve to achieve peace in Paris and worldwide.
Today is Remembrance Day. A day to reflect on the sacrifices that our soldiers made back in World Wars I and II. Without the sacrifices, we wouldn't be enjoying the freedoms that we have today.
Lest We Forget
Thanks for coming to watch us play. That photo is real nice. To answer your question, Hydration before and during the games are crucial to feeling good when I play. I really look forward to the AllStar weekend in Toronto and thank you again for the support !
Major League Baseball playoffs start this week and for the first time since 1993, the Blue Jays are in it. The city of Toronto is buzzing with excitement in anticipation of game 1 tomorrow against the Texas Rangers.
I'm very nervous, but I'm hopeful the Blue Jays will win and advance.
What a time to be a Blue Jays fan! They are on the verge of making it to the playoffs since 1993, the year they won their second World Series. It has been a long time coming .
A total team effort has allowed the Blue Jays to reach this point. AL MVP candidate Josh Donaldson is a warrior. He has played basically every day and he has hit 40 home runs and driven in over 120 runs. Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Bautista have also been huge with the bats. The acquisition of Troy Tulowitzki from Colorado for Jose Reyes has made their defence much better. Although Tulowitzki is currently injured, other players have stepped up. But the big move was the trade for David Price. He is a legi...
