Toronto Mike



The 125th Canadian National Exhibition opened last week.  It's the world's largest annual exposition and a great annual tradition here in Toronto.

I probably won't go to the Ex again until James is old enough to really enjoy it.  You see, as a teenager, I seriously overdosed on the place.  From 1989 through 1991 I worked at the CNE and walked the midway all 60 days it was open during that span.  I've got a tonne of Ex memories, as you can imagine, and I'll try to share a few here over the next couple of weeks.

Stay tuned for the true tales of a game booth attendant!  There's an intimidating presence named Ardo, carney heroics and lives risked for the sake of a giant stuffed bear.
