  • Woohoooooo!!!

    This team just never gives up, and I'm sure adding the seasoned vets is critical to that. Kawhi, Gasol, Danny - they've all been there before and they stay calm and that helps the rest of the team to keep their heads.

    I loved DD and JV and it really hurt to see them go, but.... it's made all the difference.

    FVV back to being huge off the bench (and just in time). Now it's only Danny who's cold. I would have bet he'd turn it around last night, but I'm still sure he will very soon.

    Gonna be up in Craigleith with no TV on Thursday.

    Anyone able to recommend a good sports bar or similar to watch the game in Blue Mountain Village?

      No TV or internet? I'm sure there is an NBA stream on Reddit. That's how my kids watch sports. Only I pay for cable.

      • A super high last night. Kawhi is just plain spectacular. Siakam and Lowry made many plays down the stretch. Gasol sunk those two big 3s. FVV continues to roll. Green's funk continues. Still think he'll break out if it.

        I think the Warriors will start with Draymond on Siakam and Thompson on Kawhi. But with switches galore that only lasts so long. If Durant and Cousins don't make the party I like our chances. Hoping our 8 can outplay the ball movement and shooting they bring. Regardless, hoping for a great series.

        • The more I look at stats the more I believe it's not just about how many but when in a game.Hitting only two 3's in a game for a player may not be much but when he does it may well be .

            It's a pretty humble chalet we'll be staying at, and the owners don't want their kids wasting time online - so no tv, no internet. I could use phone data, but there's also going to be 6 guys wanting to watch - it's a group thing.

              I am sure Collingwood must have sports bars.

                Comment was written after the old guy was celebrating big time, the players were good.... I'll acknowledge that.

                Might be the hockey guy in me but I'm always focused on the next step..... until there isn't one. Not saying that's right but......

                Pretty cool accomplishment though.....
                Enjoy the moment!

                  While the road would have been open, I could see Leafs losing to the Blue Jackets or Carolina. I wasn't sold on the team this year.

                    In the village proper, Rusty’s and Jozo’s will most certainly have the game on. Wild Wing too. In town, either Boston Pizza or St. Louis have tons of screens and would be a good choice. If you’re going to town and plan on having some bevvys, use Ace Cab as the OPP have been ramping up the frequency of their RIDE programs.

                        Perfect - will either have a DD or do the cab thing (is Uber good up there?).

                          Guna assume this take is of the big 4 sports in North America considering TFC played in back to back MLS Cup finals in 16 and 17, and also won it in 17..and also breaking a long time MLS record in doing so

                          • Interesting debate topic that arose among a group of friends while watching the game (12 of us) in which I was pretty surprised that it was split down the middle.

                            If you could pick one of the following two scenarios which would it be:

                            Toronto beats GSW to win the NBA finals but Kawhi leaves in the off-season ..or

                            Toronto loses to GSW in the finals, but Kawhi signs long term

                              This isn't a dress rehearsal. Enjoy yourself. There's no do-over.

                                I would take the championship. I'd rather Kawhi play 1 year and win a championship then him playing 6+ and never winning one here.


                                Hoping they win the championship and he resigns though.
