Chris Shultz played for the Dallas Cowboys and Toronto Argonauts, winning the Grey Cup in 1991. Following his retirement from professional football, he was a member of the TSN crew covering the CFL.
The Toronto Argonauts bring back the boat.
It's an interesting coincidence that both the Blue Jays and Raptors have strung together multiple win streaks of 11 games but never 12. I believe the Jays have hit 11 at least five times now and I know the Raptors have reached 11 at least twice. When I have time,
In a surprise announcement, MLSE is the proud new owner of the Toronto Argonauts. It was previously owned by the Kilmer Group (Larry Tanenbaum) and Bell Canada, but now it's owned by the Kilmer Group, Bell Canada, and Rogers. The Argos join the Maple Leafs, Raptors, TFC and Marlies as
I was at BMO Field for the Argonaut's Eastern Conference Final against the Saskatchewan Roughriders earlier today. It was so much fun watching a great game in great conditions with a big crowd. 24,929 were there, the biggest crowd to ever watch the Argos at BMO Field. The Argos
Thanks to this recent Toronto Mike'd guest, I took the entire family to this afternoon's Argos game. It was my first Argos game at BMO Field. Normally I bike to BMO Field, but since all four kids were going, we took the Go Train. it was the very first time
I've been blogging here for 14 years, and during that time there were some pretty low times in Toronto sports. Just four years ago I wrote this about the new bottom for Toronto sports teams. Things were very, very bad for the big five. In 2016, things got a whole
I'm writing this entry out of frustration. My pal Freddie P thinks I'm "a fool" because I told him TFC was more popular in Toronto than the Argos. In my humble opinion, TFC is more popular than the Argonauts in this city. Fred, obviously, strongly disagrees. Fred bases 100% of
In the world of professional sports, I'm focused on the Jays vs. Red Sox this afternoon. A win and we'll host the wild card game Tuesday. This is a big game. I was just biking with my two older kids and we were chatting about the Jays. My 14-year old
Television ratings are a very inexact science. Radio ratings, too, but this is about Monday's CFL matchup between the Toronto Argonauts and Hamilton Ti-Cats. It was the Labour Day Classic, so you knew many across this country would be tuning in. A small collective of unknown people across this country
I feel I need to preface this entry by stating I'm not a CFL-hater. I was at Pinball's last game, I took my son to see Ricky Williams and I generally root for the Argonauts' success. The fact is, my overall interest in both the CFL and NFL has waned
I'm an unabashed Toronto sports fan. I've been root, root, rooting for the home teams for as long as I can remember. This past month has reminded me of the three-tiers of pro-sports in Toronto. There's group A, consisting of the Leafs, Blue Jays and Raptors, and group B, composed
Just last month I was ranting about the banner MLSE was raising in the ACC for Bon Jovi. It's all starting to make a little more sense. Current Buffalo Bills owner, Ralph Wilson, is 95-years old. As soon as he kicks the bucket, Jon Bon Jovi may lead a group
Toronto Sports fans, I have good news. It seems we bounced off the bottom in August and things are looking up. At that time, the Jays, Leafs, Raptors, TFC and Argos were all in pretty dire straits. You'll have to click back for details. I called it a "brand new
It was the perfect storm. The Argos hosted the 100th Grey Cup and won it with a convincing 35-22 win over the Calgary Stampeders. And with no Leafs in sight to overshadow the event with a 3-game winning streak or anything like that, the spotlight belongs to the deserving Argonauts.
The Argos take on the Stampeders tonight in the 100th Grey Cup. I know I'll be watching as the Boatmen go for their 16th championship, 4th overall in North American professional sports. Even if you haven't watched a single CFL game all season, I hope you watch tonight. This is
The Toronto Argonauts will be playing in the 100th Grey Cup this Sunday and I think this entire city should jump on the bandwagon. Normally bandwagon jumpers annoy me, but if ever a franchise needed a mass bandwagon jump, this is the franchise and this is the time. Personally, I'm
My son and I attended the Argos game this afternoon. It was a rather important game, with Montreal in town, and we lost 24-12. I was offered two tickets to give away to a reader, courtesy of EcoTraction, and these tickets were already won by Luke F. when EcoTraction found
I've got two Argos tickets to give away for Sunday's game against Montreal. The game is at 1pm and the seats are in the lower level near the 30-yard line. That's pretty damn good. No strings attached... just leave a comment here if you want the tickets. They're from EcoTraction,
I just wanted to give a quick shout out to my buddy Blaine Schmidt who owns Boot Hill Automotive Resurrection in Erin, Ontario. Freddie P introduced me to Blaine many years ago, and we've been pals ever since. He's not only a great guy, but he won a Grey Cup
I think we're about to hit a new bottom... at least a new bottom for Toronto sports teams. With the Euro Cup and Olympic distractions behind us, and summer winding down, I've decided to do a quick State of the Union analysis of Toronto professional sports teams. Toronto Blue Jays
It seems like we were just talking about the Raptors gunning for fourth in the conference and a home court advantage for their first round in the playoffs. For those who don't follow the Raps, we finished ninth in the conference and that means we missed the playoffs for the
