Game 2, the Toronto Raptors host the Brooklyn Nets tonight at the Air Canada Centre. Why am I in New York? Well, Jacek always says I jinx my teams. Maybe it’s a good thing because we lost on Saturday and that can’t happen again this evening.

The Raptors official ambassador, Drake, was photographed in Toronto with friends on Sunday, likely to support his team. Rihanna was not with him. That’s OK. Rihanna shouldn’t come out unless we go deep into the playoffs. You don’t bring the Rihanna for Round 1. Maybe for the conference finals you might bring the Rihanna…if we get there. Three out of four Sports Illustrated experts are predicting we won’t.

We The North might have something to say about that.

Are we borrowing here from Game Of Thrones? If so, does that make us the Starks or the Night’s Watch? If we tweak that analogy, can we say if We The North, JV could be Hodor? Wasaga Beach??!?!

Let’s go Raptors. #WeTheNorth
