Re: The Toronto Raptors- NBA Finals

I was up in Markham all day.

The traffic was unusually light. With the parade and presentation running hours behind I expected a tonne of traffic but got home in the quickest time ever.

Re: The Toronto Raptors- NBA Finals

There was the Lululemon 10k run on this morning. I had a couple of friends running it. I preferred to stay in bed myself!

Re: The Toronto Raptors- NBA Finals

Yeah. It makes little sense at all other than the fact most of the Basketball players want to get away so they have to do it sooner is my guess or no one will be around.

Re: 5 years in Canada - Seeking advices

The job thing in Canada is terrible.

You need ex-colleagues who are prepared to give creative references for you and beef up your resume with the occasional white lie here and there. No one admits...

Re: The 2019-2020 Football Thread

Apparently Pogba will be following him.

Interesting times at Chelsea. They actually had a reasonable season so to be changing manager can't be ideal. It will be tough for the new man who won't...

Yup. A game of four halves and you score by utilizing the hand of god many times during a game!

Re: The 2018-2019 Football Thread

Not many true Torontonians in "The Maple Leaf". I've only just seen this post but as you are well aware I did put something up in the Leaf!

No other comments though so everyone else must be busy...

Re: The Toronto Raptors- NBA Finals

Crunch time!

Looks like they bought Durant back too early. He's done now till next season I suspect.

Novocastrian was a bit of a fan if I remember correctly. He is probably in bed now though!

Re: The Toronto Raptors- NBA Finals

It's certainly generating a lot of advertising revenue for TSN and Sportsnet.

If the Raptors don't win tonight they may be in trouble. Kevin Durant will only get stronger now he is back in the...

It's been a while since I started a thread. That probably goes some way to explain the lack of excitement or intellectual stimulus down the forum at the moment. :p

Re: Demerit points Ontario

one of the things that pissed me off about the UK was the police hiding with their speed guns to shoot ordinary people for easy revenue.

Re: The 2018-2019 Football Thread

Re: Employer Attitudes

Being inflexible on the start date is odd. Although normally in the interview process later stages timeline to start is mapped out.

Re: Finally, good bye Mrs. May

Re: Five years and homesickness increasing..
