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…

Leafs wait and watch the blockbusters: Arthur

thestar.com — Before the draft, the explosions came. Hockey as a sport favours player stasis when it matters, and there are only a few days per year when the gates are really open. The draft is one, and in some ways it's the best one. The draft is where everybody starts again.

NHL set to change OT gimmick but doesn’t fix the real problem: Arthur

thestar.com — Behold hockey's Gordian knot, which was probably named because Gord is such an archetypically popular Canadian name, or something. Gord, eh? He could really tie knots, Gord. Good fisherman, too. So, once approved by the Board of Governors, the NHL will change its overtime format next season.

Steve Nash is easy to find if you’re looking: Arthur

thestar.com — Steve Nash couldn't watch every game - life got in the way, as it does - but oh, he wanted to. He wanted to see every part of the Golden State Warriors versus LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA final. It was, in a way, a little personal.
