9th Blogaversary

birthdayIt was nine years ago today that I changed my personal home page into a blog. In the world of blogging, nine years is actually pretty impressive, if I do say so myself. The vast majority of your favourite blogs started well after November 30, 2002.

How did you find this blog?

I came across your blog one day while trying to search for some old school Blue Jays songs. Growing up, I had the casettes from 1991-93. They were epic then, and still epic today. I looked around at a few other entries and liked what I was reading about, so I have kept coming back. Thanks for keeping this going. Your blog is always worth a couple minutes out of my day. Happy blogaversary!

Oh... and my great debate of the day?

Is it blogaversary or blogiversary. I went with blogaversary.

Congrats Mike. I found your site when Humble was fired the first time and you reached out to him.

November 30, 2011 @ 4:49 PM


I found you on freddiep.ca..... I haven't been the same since ;)

Well done Mike.

I found this blog through a google search to do with a radio news story. Turns out we share a lot of common interests, namely sports and radio/media.

November 30, 2011 @ 6:24 PM


Hey Mike,
I found your website when I googled either "what happened to Humble and Fred" or "what happened to Humble Howard".
That was a few Blogiversary's ago and I have enjoyed your Blog immensely!
Keep up the good work!!

I came in with the Martin Streek crowd.

November 30, 2011 @ 7:37 PM


I can't remember how I found this site, but been around since 1st year.

Congrats, Mike.

November 30, 2011 @ 7:59 PM


I found your site because you told me about it over a beverage and cuddles.

November 30, 2011 @ 8:07 PM


I can't remember how I found this site, probably on google somehow. Go Habs.

November 30, 2011 @ 8:14 PM


I honestly don't remember how I stumbled upon the site. It was probably a google search for the Leafs of Jays. But I do know I've been reading for a number of years now.

November 30, 2011 @ 8:36 PM


And I almost forgot, but I was directly responsible for an entry on here.


Happy 9th anniversary, Mike.

November 30, 2011 @ 8:40 PM


Same with me - I was doing a google search for (insert topic here) and came across your site. I've been hooked ever since.

I remember that story well. In fact, it's pretty fun to go back and read the comments at http://www.torontomike.com/2008/11/sundin_trashes_toronto_exclusi.html in retrospect.

Of course, Mats never retired a Leaf, and we were right.

Read your blog everyday. Congratulations !

Way to go, Mike!

I made my way to your blog via Freddie P's blog. Been a regular ever since. I enjoy the variety of content here - most recently, the guest post by the unemployed person over 50.

You're doing a great job!

Congrats on 9 years. That really is a long time for a blog. I just hit 8 last month myself.

I found you through Freddie, who I found again while flipping stations a couple of years ago and landing on Q's morning show where he was a guest. He mentioned his FreddieP.ca blog and through reading that I saw mentions of you, checked out a few of your posts and the rest is history.

Here's to 9 more years...if that's what you feel like doing, of course.

Well, it's a good site, but the daily photos aren't that interesting because I can't see them. Go Habs.

December 1, 2011 @ 8:20 PM


Like many, because of Martin Streek. I still miss him...

December 1, 2011 @ 8:27 PM


I think I first visited your site around 2004-05. I can't remember but yours is the blog that I've read the longest and one of the first that I started reading.
