FROM THE CHEAP SEATS: Canada, Tom sucks!

I guess I'm unpatriotic. Though, born and raised in Canada-and a lifelong fan of the gridiron game-I have never made a secret of my disdain for this country's knock-off brand of football or its ramshackle convening body, the Canadian Football League. What mystifies me most about the CFL isn't its poor management, weak talent pool, inferiority complex or laughable quality of play.

THIRD MAN IN: Hail to the true home run king

I hate this article. I hate the necessity of this debate. It disgusts me, as it disgusts many, that baseball has become a witch-hunt; a magnet for cynics. Baseball is a beautiful, unappreciated sport. It is exciting, deeply cerebral and rich with history.

Boston Celtics: The reigning champs lost a lot of their toughness when they let go of SF James Posey, but the Celtics are still the favourites to win the East.

For Head Coach Marc Mounicot and the McGill women's soccer team, there's nothing surprising about being in two provincial finals in the same academic year.

THIRD MAN IN: Lovin’ the Cubs

In years past, Chicago has been called the most segregated city in America, in reference to the city's heavily black South Side and the mostly white neighbourhoods of the North Side. The city's most persistent divide, however, has little to do with race. To a much greater extent than either New York or Los Angeles, Chicago is a city divided by baseball.

MARCH MADNESS: EAST

Preview: Top-seeded Kentucky and freshman sensation John Wall cast a long shadow over the East bracket, though they'll need to play better than they did against Mississippi State in the SEC Tournament Final in order to advance. West Virginia, the No. 2 seed, has the most momentum after winning the Big East title in dramatic fashion over the weekend.

MARCH MADNESS: MIDWEST
