Man o man, this guy loved, LOVED, his Leafs, Jays, Raptors etc etc. The night wasn't over till he glibly explained away the latest defeat with one excuse or another (except the obvious one where the other team was better, of course).
There's been opportunities missed by the teams not hiring him to do PR or something.
(If you ever have Lance Brown on, just copy and paste this comment under that post).

Emotional for sure, talking about his son, Ken Daniels son & I remember David Shoalts kicking out the jams with his last song about his son Matthew.
My rug shrink today. Great episode.

Can't believe that you didn't try to get him to record a "Toronto Mike, Coming Up!!" tag! Or that
his divisive "Sports, Coming Up!!" bit was not discussed. If memory serves, more than one person
commented on their distaste for it in the initial thread announcing the letting go of both him and
Lance Brown (including ME, probably!!). Aside from that a very enjoyable episode. Although it was
obviously very tough to hear the segment about his deceased son. The scourge of Fentanyl is
taking away too many young people in their prime, accidentally or otherwise. More needs to be
done about this, as the current strategies just don't seem to be working at all.

Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike


I've never watched CFTO / CTV Toronto news!

And yet you seemed to have such a longtime, big fan rapport with Mr. Tilley!! True, I
was solely a CityTV news guy for most of my life, until I found myself dwelling in a one
channel universe. So, When in Rome....

So glad to have had the opportunity to listen to Joe discuss his private life. He does a lot for the community which I don't think most people aware of but I do know as my life is better because of this gentleman.

Thank you,
