Rahman Mohamed Toronto sports teams: building fast transit over historical gridlock?
Once upon a time Toronto was was called the worst sports city. Native Torontonians were willing to admit: worst in the province, worst in the country, worst on the continent, worst in the world. Today street walkers in TO are likely to shake it off. The sports scene in Toronto has made a dramatic shift. A new lane seems to be opening.
It’s confirmed. Canadian Men and Women have been eliminated from the hockey finals in PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympics. Even though hockey is the Canadian sport and Canadians have a 6-month practice season, the men and women have both been held back from Gold. Despite a nail-biting end in a shootout Canadian women were kept away by the detested Americans; they will return North with Silver around their necks. A loss to Germany in the semi-finals has sent Canadian men to the Bronze competition with Czech Republic. Gold-Silver will be a battle between Germany and Olympic Athletes from Russia. The question now: if you’re a Canadian are you allowed to cheer for the opponent?

Toronto sports teams. With fans they’ve been a joke for years. A win by a Toronto team was considered a miracle. Recently, as they actually improved, entered the post-season and won games , even championships they’re getting more respect from fans and rivals too. Toronto is considered the city to have the most loyal fans, fans that will support the team even if they’re dead last and have no chance; proof: Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Raptors, and Toronto Blue Jays have had full stadiums and sky high ticket prices even when their records were bad.
Nobody has found the most loyal and fanatic fan; selfies and media are always trying to out-perform. There’s a competition: where will you see the crazy fans – Instagram, TV, local paper, in person.
Toronto’s mayors have always been involved in fandom, trading in the suite for a jersey during playoffs and declaring support for the team in open council and to the media. Whether or not Mayor John Tory is a crazy loyal fan is not known. What is known: he’s the good luck charm for Toronto teams, knowledgeable about sports, the mayor of a city with teams that have drastically improved, or just lucky.
