With the Argonauts Grey Cup win now firmly in the rear-view mirror, Toronto sports fans are no doubt wondering who they can cheer for during the coming months. More specifically, is there anyone worth cheering for?
The Raptors have endured a miserable start to their campaign and aren’t showing any signs of turning it around anytime soon. The NHL lockout is still ongoing, but let’s be honest, the Leafs cause more lows than highs these days anyway for the fine people of Toronto.
Well don’t worry, because hope is just around the corner. If you want to support a team that regularly challenges for honours, then look no further than the Toronto Rock, who this week started training for the upcoming season:
(If that’s what they call intense, I’d love to see them when they’re relaxed.)
Like the Argonauts, the Rock are one of the more accessible professional sports teams in Toronto. In fact, lacrosse fans are welcome to go down and watch training camp at the Rock Athletic Centre, which is located at 1132 Invicta Drive in Oakville.
Who knows, you may even get the chance to join in with the players, just like this season ticket holder did yesterday:
And if you still need convincing that you should check out the Rock this season, then there’s always the cheerleaders, seen here with forward Garrett Billings modelling some, errr, pizza:
What more could you ask for: Sport, women and food!
