Toronto has once again found itself in the throes of sports fanaticism this year. The Blue Jays repeated the successes of last year’s meteoric rise to the American League Division Series Championship. The Toronto FC just concluded a competitive campaign, losing the MLS Cup to the Seattle Sounders. The Raptors are in the midst of their own campaign for a fourth straight Atlantic Division title. The city has become a hotbed of hockey activity. It welcomed the best players in the National Hockey League as they competed the World Cup of Hockey and will host the newest generation of hockey talents in the World Junior Hockey Championships.
