And maybe Stamkos went to a baseball game or something. Hockey News breaking https://t.co/uU3Qwwi1Wq — James Mirtle (@mirtle) August 29, 2015 True story: I had my first ever banana today. — Taylor Hall (@hallsy04) August 29, 2015 The other August news is about Steven Stamkos! Did he sign anything, you ask? Well, no. He was kind of messing around with baseball again, and it, um, wasn't with the Tampa Bay Rays this time. FINE, it was with his hometown team. Luckily I am on the Jays bandwagon with him, so it wasn't TOO jarring to see him with a Leaf on his hat. I did get teased about it a bit. Wearing glasses to a Blue Jays game for the first time. I want to see the threads

Shirts were removed. A woman’s derriere was slapped. Shoes were thrown. A near-riot ensued. No, “Jersey Shore” didn’t have a reunion episode. I hear some of them have other things going on. This was much more disturbing. It was a press conference for the rematch between Shane Mosley and Ricardo Mayorga, airing this Saturday night on Integrated Sports Pay-Per-View. And really, the fact that the fight is actually happening at all comes as a bit of a surprise. From the moment this bout was announced, reactions ranged from amusement, to horror, to can’t-look-away-from-the-*******-train-wreck intrigue. The odds seemed stacked that this thing would implode like the Toronto Maple Leafs in

We're nearly into our top five Leafs prospects, but just outside that group is the newly-added Travis Dermott, Toronto's second-round pick out of Erie in this pas draft. It should be noted right away that the difference between Dermott and the 4th/5th-ranked prospects on this list were minimal in terms of voting. Given the Leafs traded down to select him, Dermott is an example of a pick we probably didn't know too much about heading into the draft, but we definitely like what we've learned since.
