Chris Cuthbert@CCtsn47s
Sad day. Our heroes @JayOnrait and @tsnotoole are headed south to Fox Sports. Best Canadian export since Pam Anderson. #congrats



Bob McKenzie@TSNBobMcKenzie10m

Goodbye and good luck to two great talents, @JayOnrait and @tsnotoole, who are moving on to new challenges. http://bit.ly/17BJgC1








James Duthie@tsnjamesduthie2m

Big Congrats to two of my favourite clowns (term of endearment) on the planet, @JayOnrait and @tsnotoole. Leaving us for FOX in July.








Ray Ferraro@rayferrarotsn3m

All the best to a couple of fantastic guys and entertaining hosts @JayOnrait and @tsnotoole as they head to LA-Gonna miss the fun #goodluck




Happy Friday all.
Do you remember when this article was written?
“Co-anchors Jay Onrait, 37, and O’Toole, 36, have become national celebrities in Canada, akin to the star status afforded SportsCenter stars Keith Olbermann and Craig Kilborn in the U.S. in the 1990s. YouTube clips of the pair’s antics have racked up hundreds of thousands of views.”
Well, be careful what you ask for…
Multiple sources are telling me that boh Jay Onrait and Dan O’Toole are headed south, south of the border. No, the duo aren’t headed for greener pastures in Bristol Connecticut, the duo are headed to Fox Sports who is now fully focused on taking on ESPN!
When this is all happening hasn’t been confirmed at least to me, but I am told it’s a done deal.
Who is replacing the popular duo on TSN? I have no clue. Yet.
Canada continues to be a good training ground for US media companies to grab top notch talent. These two certainly aren’t the first. They won’t be the last. No, this isn’t a plug for the fine folks at the College of Sportsmedia, but if I was young and looking to get in the business I know where I’d be going to school.
It will be VERY interesting to see how the duo’s “Schtick” plays in the USA. I couldn’t be happier for the duo, opportunity only knocks so many times and when it does…..
More details to follow.
I have one more piece of news to share, but need to confirm it’s validity, but it’s print related. Stay tuned
TSM

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.


Jesus LOVES YOU!
2012, meet Matthew 24:36-47!

14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
