Andy Gray's @si_vault Toronto Picture Dump
Andy Gray from Sports Illustrated is tweeting Toronto-centric pictures this afternoon.
I'm a Toronto-centric kind of guy who loves sports (and gets Sports Illustrated every week), so I'm collecting them all here along with Andy's accompanying tweets and some commentary from yours truly.
AG: Jack Morris, Dave Stewart, Todd Stottlemyre & Juan Guzman pose at a 1993 SI photo shoot
TM: Damn, I miss these days. I once stalked Stottlemyre at the CNE to get his autograph.
AG: Toronto Argonauts owners Bruce McNall, Wayne Gretzky and John Candy attend a 1991 game
TM: The kids and I just watched Planes, Trains and Automobiles. A few months ago, we watched Uncle Buck. I miss John Candy.
AG: SI photographer John McDonough took this great shot of Vince Carter
TM: Nope, I'm still not ready to make nice.
AG: Felix Potvin and his cat pose for a 1982 (sic) SI photo shoot
TM: Of course, Andy meant 1992. Speaking of stuff I miss, damn I miss Felix Potvin and this Leafs team that made the Conference finals twice in the early 90s.
AG: How amazing was this Toronto promotion (from 1946 Knicks-Huskies game)?
TM: I hate the name "Raptors" and wish we had gone with "Huskies".
AG: Get your cigar, recline your La-Z-Boy. We're going with Toronto photos all day. David Wells is excited!
TM: I saw STP and RHCP with David Wells... sorta.
AG: Tie Domi and Lyle Odelein get acquainted during a 2000 game between the Leafs and Devils
TM: My old pal.
AG: Marcus Camby poses for a photo at Raptors Media Day in 1997
TM: I can't believe Camby is still playing. He's old... he's my age!
AG: Blue Jays shortstop Danny Ainge in action
TM: NBA star Danny Ainge started at third for the Jays back in 1981. Here are the other starting third basemen in Blue Jays history.
AG: Joe Theismann in action with the Toronto Argonauts during the 1972 season
TM: This is the first photo, outside the Huskies ticket, that doesn't bring back memories.
AG: Cousins Tracy McGrady and Vince Carter in 1999
TM: T-Mac never seemed happy.
AG: Kelly Gruber celebrates Toronto Day at the SI Vault (for @GrubersMullet and Gruber lovers everywhere)
AG: Roberto Alomar lays out for a catch during the 1992 World Series against Atlanta
TM: The greatest Blue Jay of all-time.
AG: Toronto fans celebrate after the Blue Jays won the 1992 World Series
TM: I'll never forget.
AG: Jesse Barfield and his son let their Soul Glo before a 1996 (sic) Blue Jays-Orioles game
TM: I loved Barfield, and I love this picture. There's my Exhibition Stadium in what is likely 1986. Barfield had a cannon for an arm.
AG: Wendel Clark scores a goal during a 1993 Caps-Leafs game
TM: All heart.
AG: Canadian legend Tim Horton played 18 seasons for the Maple Leafs in the '50s and '60s
TM: That's right, kids. Tim Horton was a Leaf. In fact, he was one of the greatest Leafs.
AG: Dave Keon and Pierre Pilote chase down a loose puck during a 1967 Maple Leafs-Blackhawks game
TM: I missed Keon's entire career, but I caught his return.
AG: Brian McNamee stretches out Roger Clemens before a 1997 Toronto-Baltimore game
TM: Roger Clemens, part of baseball's lost generation.
AG: How did Chris Bosh let SI take this photo of him?
AG: SI's Chuck Solomon with a great aerial shot of Joe Carter scoring the winning run of the 1993 World Series
TM: Joe touched 'em all, and it's been all downhill since then.
AG: Toronto Day is over as I have to meet Robbie Alomar at his Skydome hotel room for dinner. Hope you enjoyed
TM: Fess up, Toronto. How many of you slept with Roberto Alomar?
