I Dream A Dream

Hi world.

As I’ve mentioned a million times on Twitter in the last month or so, I’ve been looking for work. And while I’ve been looking I’ve been home a lot. And while I’ve been home a lot I’ve been watching a lot of sports. And while I’ve been watching a lot of sports I’ve been dreaming.

Now, these aren’t the same dreams from my childhood which had me playing first base for my beloved Toronto Blue Jays. This dream is a grown-up’s dream. A sports fan’s dream. And a writer’s dream.

I’ve been dreaming of watching baseball and hockey and basketball and writing about what I’ve seen. I’ve always been analytical about sports. I’ve always loved sports. And I’ve always written about sports. It’s just the way I roll. So why can’t I get paid for it?

I’d be funny, smart, thought provoking, forward thinking, controversial and relevant. I’d say the things I wanted to say. The things that you argue with your friends about at the sports bar or on the couch in front of the TV.

I’d tell you that I think Chris Bosh leaving the Raptors isn’t such a bad thing if you can bring in Amare Stoudemire to replace him and draft well this summer.

I’d tell you that I still believe in Carey Price and would trade Jaroslav Halak this summer as a restricted free agent while he’s got a high value.

I’d complain about the Blue Jays but understand that this is a team finally rebuilding and that will experience some growing pains.

And this summer I’d watch in awe at the spectacle that will be the World Cup of Soccer. And then I’d come at you with questions, facts, observations and jokes.

I’d love it. You’d love it.

I’ve written sports before. You can find me at www.tosports.ca. There are pieces about David Beckham, Jimmy Key, The Raptors, Leafs and Habs. Take a look for yourself.

Really all I’m saying is that it’s a great dream. Something that would make me a happy boy. It would also give me a reason to watch afternoon baseball games on Thursdays and 10pm EST puck drops on Sunday nights. I’d be in heaven.

So look out world. If I have a chance, an opportunity, an open door… I’ll take it.

And then you’ll see just how much I really love sports.
