Welcome to another edition of the 500 Level Podcast.
Aman and Ben start off the show discussing all the big news surrounding the Leafs - the firing of Ron Wilson and the hiring of Randy Carlyle as the new coach, its playoff chances and the contract extension for Mikhail Grabovski.
The talk shifts to the Blue Jays with the injury to Litsch, the emergence of prospect Hechavarria and the Jays chances of securing the new wildcard berth. They then talk about the Raptors options at the NBA trade deadline, the new injury to Amir Johnson and an update on Andrea Bargnani, and playing close games against teams above them in the standings but still coming up just short.
For the first time this year they spend some time talking about Toronto FC and its biggest game in franchise history against defending MLS Champs - the LA Galaxy. And they talk about the poor quality of the artificial pitch the game will be played on at the Rogers Centre.
In the Around the World segment they talk about the somewhat unexpected and impending decision of Peyton Manning being released from the Colts and Rory McIlroy's rise to being the number one ranked golfer in the world and Tiger Wood's great play in the final round on the weekend.
So relax, sit back, and enjoy another great episode!
