Royal Rumble in Arlington!

Why We Throw Beer Cans

April 26, 2016

As we approach the Raptors game 5 in Toronto, at the disrespectful time of 6pm, many in the US of A fail to see the angst building in the blood of Toronto Sports fans.   We all remember game 5 of the 2015 ALDS in Toronto (which also started at a disrespectful time of 4pm on a Thursday) with the Blue Jays vs the Rangers.
