Tough Times in Toronto Sports

CN TowerThe high point in Toronto Sports probably happened in 1993. There was a week there when Joe Carter touched 'em all to secure the Blue Jays' second consecutive World Series and the Leafs won 10 in a row to open their season. If that was the high, this might just be the low.

The Leafs are bad. They won't make the playoffs. They're rebuilding and the expectations are as low as they get.

The Raptors have lost five in a row. They don't seem interested in making the playoffs this season. High hopes are quickly being doused.

The Blue Jays haven't played a playoff game in fifteen years, and here's betting they don't play one in 2009.

Toronto FC isn't a playoff team, the Argos are in the dumpster, heck, even the Toronto Bills can't score a touchdown.

The Toronto sports fan has little hope, no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. These are tough times, my friends.

Even the Toronto Rock suck after winning so many cups early 2000's. Didn't make playoffs last year & also fired their coach. Yes all T.DOT sports teams (except TFC) fired their coach in 2008. That's a FIVE peat.

You said it, Mike. At least the Leafs are trying to do something. The Jays seem to be in a state of perpetual putridity.
