Vote: Which Toronto team will win a championship next?
The Toronto Argonauts brought a much needed win to the capital of Ontario, long-starved for sports glory since…well, since the Argos last won the Grey Cup in 2004.
Since the Argos are the cream of the CFL crop this year, they are immediately disqualified from this question: we want you to tell us which team you think will be the next from the 'Big Smoke' (aside from the aforementioned Argos) to win it all.
Your choices are as follows:
- The Toronto Blue Jays last won a World Series in 1993, meaning that next season will mark the 20th year since Major League Baseball's championship headed north of the 49th parallel. The Jays have made some drastic moves in the off-season, but will it pay off?
- The Toronto Raptors last made the playoffs in 2008, and since then they've lost their (arguably) franchise cornerstone in Chris Bosh, but have drafted high (Ed Davis, Jonas Valanciunas) and are putting more focus on team defence with new coach Dwayne Casey.
- The Toronto FC have yet to gain any momentum since joining Major League Soccer in 2007, failing to even qualify for the playoffs. However, the fledgling Vancouver Whitecaps are proof that Canadian teams can do battle with the best in the North American soccer league.
- The Toronto Maple Leafs. 1967. 'Nuff said?
There are your choices, ladies and gentlemen. Which of these Toronto-based clubs do you think will shake off their losing seasons first and goes all the way?
