Workout #1 done...
Five minutes at NBA Draft Combine in Chicago, friend comes over, shaking his head: "Your Mayor. Wow"
Proposed book: collected first-person accounts of City Hall reporters during Ford's tenure. I'll buy 10 copies.
Toronto really is the centre of the universe today.
Last time there was an earthquake in Toronto, I was in the office. I believe I screamed, "I don't want to die in here."
Headlines from tomorrow: Crackin' and Quakin'
ROB FORD JUST MOVED THE EARTH.
As always, follow one or more of the insane people that have decided to cover Toronto city council for a living.
Has anybody made a crack the case joke yet?
If you are just waking up, FY!: the Toronto Star (and Gawker) have a story about Toronto mayor Rob Ford using crack cocaine.

Painful Raptors reminder of night: Missed out on their guy Harrison Barnes by a coin flip.
I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY look forward to hearing how Toronto teachers handle this Ford thing in current affairs ....
Be real: Ford is only going to get in trouble for all of this if it turns out the crack wasn't locally grown & certified organic ...
Talking hoops on TSN 1050 at 8 tonight
Part of me has to believe that one reason for the delay in the BC decision is the org testing availability of possible replacements.
I feel bad for the organization and the fans because the way this has been handled makes the franchise look bad.
I don't feel bad for Bryan Colangelo being left to dangle. He's highly-compensated and knows the job isn't always pleasant ... 1/2
Canada Basketball will hold tryouts for its junior and cadet men's squads on May 28 and June 8 at Ryerson
Obviously there's a miniscule chance they can move into top 3 as well. Lots of reasons to be in Chicago.
Maybe down the line they'll want to acquire one or two of them. What they find out now is piece of the puzzle.
Lots of people wondering why Raps at draft combine with no picks ... Teams benefit from knowing as much as possible about players ...
Believe none of what you hear & half of what you see. Some ppl just looking for a come up. Cold world!
Hi, I'm Dave Nonis. I'm the tonal opposite of Brian Burke.
Anyway, congrats to the Grizzlies, franchise that was far behind its expansion cousins for first decade but has been far ahead since
Raptors should have gone in a different direction a long time ago. Then, failing that, should have done it this time weeks ago.
It is just mind-blowing that the organization let him go to the pre-draft camp without assurances about next year.
OKC will be ok. It's not Gay's fault. Simply: Thunder missed Russ BIG TIME. No PG to QB. And Perk/Ibaka nowhere near Gasol-Zach combo
Congrats, Grizzlies. But...Vancouver...this stings: http://t.co/3BMAlxM6UR
THAT'S the shot you take? He rushed that for no reason. Could've dribbled in further too. Got anxious.

Fratello right for sayin that MEM being better w/o Gay isn't an indictment on Rudy. MEM built around Gasol+Zach; they gotta get touches etc
The blinders worn by 'some' hockey fans and ignorance of other sports is wild.
The Jays 1st (5 runs helped by 2 errors and 2 broken-bat hits) is exhibit A for the 'it all balances out' school of baseball analysis.

From Bodog, Kansas is No. 2 fav to win NCAA title, at 11-2. Kentucky is fav, 5-1.

Re: Raptors declining to make decision on Colangelo today — he is in Chicago for draft camp. Awkward timing (that they could have avoided).
Seven of the eight teams remaining in the NBA have a near-perfect clarity of philosophy. Also, the Knicks are still alive.
I feel like the Raptors and MLSE brass are gonna wake up on Oct 1 and realize that they forgot to make a call on Colangelo’s future.
Not expecting anything definitive on Bryan Colangelo today. You can safely cut your lawn Raptors fans.
He chose 'free' in Lawrence, Kansas over multi-millions and living in Barcelona. Are you sure he's in a rush to get drafted by Charlotte?
Let's all talk about the part of the third book of Game of Thrones I just read, without talking about spoilers that are only spoilers for me

Granted, he has averaged only 2 FGA per game during this span...but ...Jason Kidd has not scored a single point in 8-straight games for NY
