Thoughts

It's November 30th and the temperature in Toronto is a balmy 15C, or like 45F. Can you say "global warming".

I want to run for Provincial Politics one day? Or do I? Maybe I should start municipally? I have started up a residents organization for 5500 residents, I have fundraiser for our City councilor, and I have always wanted to yell, "you can't handle the truth". Oops... Different dream. Problem is... City councilors make around $95K a year, while MPP's make like $80K. Who can live on $80K??? Geez.

My Toronto Raptors are 5-10 on the season but are still 1 game out of first place... Love it!

News yesterday indicated that wrestling star, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper has cancer. My thoughts are with you!

My friend, and Uber-talented Jazz musician, Dr. Andrew Jacob Scott (go buy his CD's!!!), is playing a gig this week that will see him rubbing shoulders with Hockey legends Steve Yzerman, Igor Larionov and Paul Coffey to name a few. He asked me to find some hockey cards to get signed. I found them today... I have well over a million cards and need to find a buyer for the commons and lesser none players not in sets. Problem is... The industry sucks and when collecting sets as a kid, I never imagined that I would have 2 boys to pass them along to. Good thing I have 2 Gretzky rookie cards, eh?

Today my boy looked at the cover of the Hockey News magazine and after a little prompting said, "Modano, Sakic" for the 2 players on the cover. Ahhhh. Brought tears to my eyes.

Next thing you know, you're going to come out of a cornfield and he's going to ask you "Hey Dad, you wanna have a catch?" (Tears- Every time!)

My Bills lost to another Division leader by 3 points.
Sports gets infinitely more fun when you win the 3 point games consistently rather than lose them. I remember the same was true when the raptors started getting awesome. They'd win the close ones.
