Ok, so this is my 'World Famous' sports page.  Doesn't look that way now does it? Well what do you want? Something from Scotty Morrison? (he's a darn good writer and editor of the Toronto Sun sports).  But hey, where can you go to find stuff on Wayne Gretzky or Maple Leaf Gardens or Air Canada Centre...or Bass Fishing...hehe, ok so bass fishing isn't something you'll see here (or will you???) and sure you can find all that other stuff in other places but don't go there ok!! Use this site for all your information and please DO NOT LOOK AT ANOTHER SPORTS SITE!! Ah, who cares, if you want to then go ahead, see if it bothers me.  Hey, I heard that..."he's already whining and nothing has happened yet"...well I like whining ok? Ever since I didn't get my 'Buffy' fix for the season finalle on time, I've been a little grouchy so don't mess with me!  By the way, does anyone know if Britney Spears plays any sports? I gotta find a way to get her onto this page...hehe.

Well, so far there's a lot more writing than sports, I'm sure you're saying that right? Well there's only so much you can put you know! It's a page I had way back when...the days I first started to create this site and it was mainly because at the time the Toronto Argonauts won the Grey Cup, but since then they suck.  Now I'm stuck with this page and looking for stuff to put.  There's always something I can find but lazy me, I don't like to go hunting for things.  Why not remove the page? Well if I did that then my site will become smaller and smaller and what good is that huh? One day I want it to contain millions and millions of pages, where looking for things becomes confusing, just like the Microsoft site! By the way, not related to sports of course, avoid Microsoft...Bill Gates is a man who wants to rule the world and I think he's Satan.  You can trust Saddam Hussein more than Bill Gates.  Who would you like as your friend to play with? A guy who sits around his $90 million house playing the computer geek or a guy who invades countries and has neat toys?  Tough decision huh?  How does this relate to sports? Well Saddam likes war, there was war in Yugoslava and the olympics were there in 1984 or something...so there, sports is linked in there!  And you thought I had no plan with my thoughts.  You should be ashamed of yourself!

I thought about putting the Toronto Blue Jays on here, but they suck too.  The Leafs? Well they're worthy of being back on here, just not now because...yeah, I'm lazy.  The Raptors, well they could be on here too since they had a good improved year.  The Toronto Rock? You bet they'll be here, you can't leave out a champion team now can you? Incase you have no idea who they are, they're the 2 time (1999 & 2000) National Lacross League Champions.  A nice feat considering it was their first two years here in Toronto and they put up a league record 6-0 win/loss record at home in Maple Leaf Gardens their first year, first team to win all home games (they only lost 2 all year long).  And how can you argue with 13,000 fans per game at MLG? I say, "Go Rock Go!".

And finally, I gotta have something on fishing!! hehe.  I know millions of you out there love that sport and I've been begged by so many people to have something on it.  So fear not, you'll all get to learn about bass and trout and rainbow and pike and salmon and catfish and...well you get the idea.  Now all you have to do is head on up to Lake Couchiching in Orillia, that's the Georgian Bay area if you didn't know.

The Great Wayne Gretzky Retires


Wayne Gretzky "The Great One"

Wayne Gretzky, the greatest hockey player ever, retires on April 18, 1999.

Since my sport of preference is hockey, I thought I would share some info on the trophies awarded.  In my opinion, they are the best looking trophies in all of sport.

The Stanley Cup: Oldest trophy in North America, donated by Lord Stanley of Preston (Sir Frederick Arthur) in 1892 and was to to be presented to "the championship hockey club of the Dominion of Canada" and is now awarded toStanley Cup the team that wins the NHL championship.
He purchased the trophy for $50 Canadian at the time and, over a hundred years later, is priceless.  It is the only Championship trophy that inscribes every member of the winning team.  To make room for newer bands, older ones are removed and are kept on display in the Hockey Hall of Fame, located in Toronto, ON.
