Reader Proudly Canadian helps us cleanse the palate after that Yankee Stadium business this morning.  This, from Toronto:

Just over three months after he was shot in the head at the Eaton Centre, Connor Stevenson showcased his impressive recovery by throwing the first pitch at Sunday’s Blue Jays game …

Stevenson was one of the many victims of the June 2 shooting at the Toronto mall, which killed two.  As you’ll recall, Brett Lawrie was there at the time as well, though he left unscathed.

    Guy should buy a lottery ticket.

      He has to be 18 to legally buy one.

        To the people who gave my comment above a thumbs down, the kid is only 13. In Ontario, Lottery vendors are not allowed to sell lottery tickets to anyone under 18. Furthermore, lottery winners have to sign their ticket and anyone under 18 is not allowed to collect lottery winnings. Lottery winners have 1 year to collect, so it makes no sense for a 13 year old kid to buy one.

        I think proudly is taking randygnyc’s comment too literally.
