Not sure what any of this really proves, though.

Canadian Running magazine ran an excellent profile of him this past December.

It's hard to believe that someone who ran a sub-4:00 marathon a year ago at the age of 85 would pass away. I would expect someone like that in elite physical condition to live until the age of 100.

Unfortunately there are a thousand ways to die. He may have been cardiovascularly above average but may have had other issues. Either way, a life well lived, RIP.

^ I don't think it's much of a stretch to say that the Toronto Maple Leafs are essentially the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the NHL. In other words, a very, very enthusiastic hotbed of fan support despite the fact that virtually all other markets are more lukewarm.

There's a reason that Forbes values the Leafs at $1 billion with the next two teams being worth significantly less (NY Rangers, $750M; Montreal, $575M). Once you get beyond those 3 big-money teams, the range for the remaining 27 teams plummets to a comparatively meager $130M-$350M..

What year are your Forbes #'s from? 3 teams valued at more than 1 billion last year, Maple Leafs being #3 behind the Rangers and Canadiens.

FWIW, Karmanos bought the Hartford Whalers in 1994 for $47M. Not a bad increase in valuation for a team that's relocation bait in the eyes of many.

Back to March Madness, folks!

Seems like RDS thinks that Québécois sports fans need to get into March Madness. It's not even close to being the lead item on its webpages and on its sportscasts, but it's showing up here and there now in RDS' web and onscreen presence.

Keep in mind that RDS and TSN are the same corporate property. Same logo and everything.

Worth mentioning than in over 20 years in Quebec, hanging out with guys in my demographic (including spending all of this past weekend with over 20 other dads at a tournament for our kids), I've *never* had anyone talk about March Madness.
