The best (highest?) outdoor view in the region (and a good paycheque too)….

 This has to be one of my favourite interviews of the year… I’ve been watching Jamie Parker from our studio windows at 305 King West for a while now, and now he waves over from his perch at 220 plus feet.  Yup.  Jamie climbs some 220 steps up to the top  of a construction crane

Summer splash
Wanted: Summer

I’m not going to lie. I follow Santa on  Twitter (@OfficialSanta) His first tweet out of the gate this morning? 21 weeks until Christmas!  He also added in some “ho ho ho’s…..”. Tomorrow is August 1st.  Don’t make me play a video from the 80′s to underscore just how bad things really are. Where is summer?

Parting with Prospects

There is just one day until the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline, and teams in contention are likely asking themselves this very question; “are we willing to mortgage the future to win now?”.

The Roller Derby Girls

I’ve been following the Tri-City Roller Derby teams for a while now.. all thanks to our 570News producer Matt Head (A.K.A Matt S. Faction).  He’s a ref  with the league and married to Stacie A.K.A Stacie Jones… (you know, like Casey Jones from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). They are paramedics, baristas, graphic designers and teachers

Welcome to “The Show”, Aaron Sanchez. Not many could have predicted the circumstances in which the Toronto Blue Jays top prospect would get the call to the big leagues, but here he is nonetheless; Aaron Sanchez has been promoted to the Toronto Blue Jays roster.

Sharks, Worms and Ants…

Or…What I did on my summer vacation Part 1. Okay.  On Monday I cleared out 1129 emails. Four days in and I am still trying to restart the early morning body clock.  Taking two weeks off  and trying to sleep-in is a good thing. It’s the getting back to business that takes just as long. Some

A First Half of Highs and Lows

Was there a team that experienced the extreme highs and lows in the first half more than the Toronto Blue Jays? Entering Opening Day, external expectations for the club were admittedly low. In many cases, the Blue Jays were pegged as a last place team in the American League East. After failing to address their
