Wednesday vs. Cleveland: The season opener will give fans a first glimpse at these new-look Raptors, plus the Cavaliers without LeBron James. Does the rivalry persist without the King on the court? This game could give us an answer. Friday vs. Boston: This could be a preview of next spring’s Eastern Conference final. It will be a good early test for Kawhi 5

“Last year it was like having two separate teams; it was like football almost where you had five in five out. So I think it’ll be a bit more meshed.” But the Bench Mob, RIP, was beloved, even if it turns out to be a one-year wonder.

October 16, 2018 12:14 PM All things are possible as the journey begins

As always, the ride is the thing, we’ll figure out the destination as the journey unfolds.

October 15, 2018 7:20 PM Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s unborn child is doomed to a life of perfection

And so if the Duke and Duchess of Sussex care about the world as much as they claim, if they are motivated by true charity, they need to take it down a notch 7

October 15, 2018 3:18 AM Monday NHL preview: Los Angeles Kings at Toronto Maple Leafs

The Kings’ Drew Doughty, one of the top three defencemen in the NHL, has yet to score through five games but is a plus-5. The Leafs’ Morgan Rielly, on the other hand, leads all blue-liners with 13 points in six games. The Kings lost 5-1 to the Senators on Saturday in Dion Phaneuf’s return to Ottawa, falling to 2-2-1.

BOSTON—David Price was good enough, the Red Sox bullpen was even better, and Jackie Bradley Jr. delivered a go-ahead, three-run double off the Green Monster on Sunday night to lead Boston to a 7-5 victory over the Houston Astros and tie the AL Championship Series at one game apiece. Price fell one out short of his first career post-season win as a starter 10

October 12, 2018 4:42 PM Stockholm city government deal threatens 2026 Olympics bid

Stockholm’s bid to host the 2026 Olympics is at risk only three days after the IOC formally approved the city among three candidates. A new coalition deal announced Friday to run Stockholm’s city government, between a centre-right alliance and environmentalists, requires no taxpayer funding for a Winter Games. “The starting point for all our parties 13

October 12, 2018 4:53 AM Eagles find the Giants are the perfect cure for a losing streak

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.—All the Philadelphia Eagles needed to get over their Super Bowl hangover was a little more urgency, some big plays and a timely game against the New York Giants. Carson Wentz threw a season-high three touchdown passes and the Eagles got an early lift from their defence and special teams in beating the struggling Giants 34-13 on Thursday 10
