Leafs and Raptors Pregnant

BabyCongratulations are in order for the members of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Raptors. They're all expecting!

I assume they're pregnant, because I know they're over the age of five, and they've all received their H1N1 vaccinations while the shots are reserved for high-priority groups. It's miraculous to consider one man becoming pregnant. Over 30 men becoming pregnant is something else entirely.

I want to be vaccinated as well, but as a healthy non-pregnant adult I'm not in the high-priority group so I have to patiently wait my turn. Ontario health minister Deb Matthews says we'll run out of the H1N1 vaccine before school-age children like my very own can be vaccinated.

But at least pregnant folks, like members of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Toronto Raptors, can jump the line before the province’s supply dwindles. Good on them.

Don't make assumptions. Anyone with a chronic heart condition is considered to be in the high priority group.

As far as I can tell, that would account for all the Raptors and at least half the Leafs.

This is so ridiculous. Where is the outrage when athletes skip the line for MRIs, CTs etc...?

Face it Mike, other people are better than you.

that'll be the most shots the Leaves get in 1 night this year.

Perhaps it's just what the Leafs needed to actually win, a shot in the arm.

Now where to find a "kick in the pants..."

Do we know for a fact whether they got them from the canadian system or if they were purchased in the us?
