Rogers Centre, formerly known as SkyDome, is a multi-purpose stadium in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, situated next to the CN Tower near the shores of Lake Ontario. Originally opened in 1989, it is home to the American League's Toronto Blue Jays, the Canadian Football League's Toronto Argonauts, the site of the annual International Bowl American college football bowl game, and as of 2008, the National Football League's Buffalo Bills' second playing venue in the Bills Toronto Series. While it is primarily a sports venue, it also hosts other large-scale events such as conventions, trade fairs, concerts, funfairs, and monster truck shows. The stadium was renamed "Rogers Centre" following the purchase of the stadium by Rogers Communications in 2005. - Source: Wikipedia
It's a presidential election year, so naturally a lot of the talk in D.C. and other spots across the country is about — Bryce Harper and the Washington Nationals.
The Nationals left Washington a week ago knowing the task ahead: six games against the pressure-cooker that is the American League East. The start of a 15-game stretch against the division often referred to as the best in baseball. A test, they knew, of their mettle as a young upstart.
Maybe it was the ball's flight. Five seemingly airless seconds as the crowd at Rogers Centre watched, mouths agape. Or the billowing of the black tarp advertisement covering a windowed restaurant at least 440 feet away in center field when the ball connected with it.
Everything about the way Edwin Jackson goes about his business is relaxed, reserved and with a come-what-may attitude. Questions are answered with a "Whatever, man," or a "Time will tell." His words come across more wise sage than 28-year-old flamethrower.
As the Washington Nationals begin a three-game series in Toronto, facing the Blue Jays for the first time since 2007, they'll begin their second full week of games with the heart of their order — Ryan Zimmerman, Adam LaRoche and Morse — together in the lineup.
Liverpool will open its tour of North America this summer with an exhibition against Toronto FC on July 21.
The Toronto Blue Jays have assembled a team with the potential to become a division champion this year _ just about anywhere else except in the American League East.
You don't win two Super Bowls and 163 games over an 18-year head coaching career without answers. Mike Shanahan has had them more often than not. Heck, there have even been times when Shanahan, widely regarded as one of the sport's sharpest offensive minds, has invented new ones.
London Fletcher has been around the NFL long enough to know that games like Sunday's are going to happen.
As currently constituted, the Washington Redskins barely resemble a pro football team. They can't run the ball. They can't throw it. They can't stop the opposition from doing either. If the past three weeks are a preview of how it's going to be the rest of the way, they have no hope. Cancel the last nine games and just hold an extended minicamp.
Brian Orakpo didn't have much of an answer for just what's happened to the Washington Redskins during the team's losing streak, which reached three games Sunday with a 23-0 no-show against the Buffalo Bills in the Rogers Centre.
This game against the Buffalo Bills in Toronto would be a lot more fun if Sav Rocca, the Washington Redskins' punter, could score a rouge.
Buffalo Bills safety George Wilson regards Toronto as a nice and diverse place to visit. Just don't ask him to get excited about playing "home" games there.ss
The Washington Redskins' place in the contentious NFC East guarantees them a daunting slate of road games each year.
Flanked by two red-clad Mounties and soaking in the cheers, Roberto Alomar made his way onto the field Sunday as his No. 12 was retired by the Toronto Blue Jays.
