Bob McCown Out at Prime Time Sports

Bob "Bobcat" McCown has been hosting Prime Time Sports on CJCL 1430 / 590 since 1989. Except for a brief period when Dan Shulman hosted the program, he's been the only host the show's ever had.

Tomorrow's his last day as he's been ousted by Rogers Sportsnet. This news was originally tweeted by TSM's Jonah and confirmed today by Sportsnet.

It seem Bob wants to talk about this, and I can't think of a better forum for him to do so than Toronto Mike'd. Bob, if you're reading this, contact me and we'll make it happen.

Scenes From the Raptors Championship Parade

Once we wrapped up today's Hebsy on Sports, I put the episode online and jumped on my bike to head east along the waterfront trail. I didn't really have a plan, I just knew I wanted to be a part of today's Raptors Championship parade.

It became apparent at Lake Shore and Strachan that I wasn't going to be able to bike much further. The crowds lining Lake Shore by the Prince's Gates were already pretty deep. At this point, I found the aforementioned Hebsy and we made our way to a great spot and took in the action.

Hebsy

The weather was perfect, the fans joyous and plentiful, and our Raptors did not disappoint. I took in the parade and biked home to catch the rally on TV. As I type, the parade still hasn't reached Nathan Phillips Square. I'm pretty pleased with my decision to lock up at Strachan.

Here's a dump of pictures and video I took from my spot just east of Strachan. What a day!
