Win or lose, this Jays season is worth living: Arthur

thestar.com — It is a measure of the last two weeks in Toronto baseball that the Blue Jays losing felt both weird and encouraging. The Jays stopped losing games in this town for a while, and engulfed this city in hope, and it's been washing over everything.

Bruce Arthur: Grey Cup title a victory for all of Saskatchewan

leaderpost.com — REGINA - The confetti blew across the field like dry snow, flecks of white and green tissue paper swirling and tumbling, and nobody left. Well, Tom Hanks and Martin Short were gone, but not before Hanks stopped to take one more picture and tell someone "this was worth every second."

The Jays suddenly look like a team that makes sense

thestar.com — So this is what it feels like, abandon. Sports fans in this city are familiar with the big splash and with the sinking, slow or fast or eternal. The Blue Jays don't do this. Alex Anthopoulos doesn't do this. This a franchise of half-measures, maybe two-thirds. It never leads to much of anywhere.

Anthopoulos lays groundwork for Blue Jays' future: Arthur

thestar.com — If you were watching Alex Anthopoulos carefully you noted the beginning, and the end. In his press conference announcing the bold, splashy acquisition of five-time all-star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, the Blue Jays general manager began by thanking Jays owner Rogers Communications at length for the support, chapter and verse.

An Olympic bid comes with our list of demands for Toronto: Arthur

thestar.com — So, let's sum up. Canadians won big. The HOV lanes were not a catastrophe. The cost was momentarily forgotten, a summer daydream, a haze. The mayor thought Kanye West was Canadian. Nobody was impaled on the mascot. Good job, everyone.

So, the Pan Ams went well enough that I started on an Olympic bid list of demands: thestar.com/content/thesta…

Anyway, the Pan Ams are over. Here are my list of demands if — when — Toronto bids for the Olympics. thestar.com/news/gta/panam…

Since Toronto seems to be talking itself into another Olympic bid, here's an early list of demands: thestar.com/news/gta/panam…

Lamoriello just the latest strong voice for the Leafs: Arthur

thestar.com — When Dean Lombardi was named a general manager for the first time he was scared to death, so he called Lou Lamoriello. He didn't know Lou, but he asked the boss of the New Jersey Devils for an audience, and Lou granted it.

Toronto’s Pan Am Games are what you will make them: Arthur

thestar.com — Before you decide that you either hate or resent or will embrace the Pan Am Games, take a moment to decide which one. Every major Games in the world, which includes the Pan Ams, is more than one thing.

Why can’t NHL try to be fun like the NBA?: Arthur

thestar.com — On Wednesday, the NBA turned to the newest and most infantile form of communication that the human race has created. No, not expressions like "on fleek" or abbreviations like BFF, or the way Donald Trump talks. That's more of a cartoon thing than what we're talking about, by the way.

The Phil Kessel era in Toronto is over: Arthur

thestar.com — When Brendan Shanahan was a kid he'd go out into the driveway and play lacrosse, alone, and he'd almost enter a trance. It was the same with hockey, with chasing his brothers, with competing. He needed it. One of his own kids has that drive. He can see it.

Pan Ams can be more than the HOV Games: Arthur

thestar.com — Stop! You might have Pan Am Games fever, Toronto! Oh, some of you are already stopped, I see. Apparently it's the new temporary HOV lanes, which are threaded along the Don Valley Parkway, Lakeshore Boulevard, the Gardiner, the QEW, the 401, the 404, the 427, and oh my god this column has become a traffic report.

The Pan Am Games have started screwing up Toronto's traffic. But that's not really the Pan Am Games's fault: thestar.com/content/thesta…

@davegrapes which is why I think Dickey and Buehrle are the keys to the whole thing
