Ever since Toronto Blue Jays star Jose Bautista graced the cover of Where Toronto’s April issue, it seems as though I’ve been seeing the team everywhere. No—I wish I’d been running into the likes of Adam Lind and Ricky Romero around town; I mean that I’ve started noticing Jays hats, sweatshirts, merchandise in the windows of every sporting-goods store, and, of course, even an entire section dedicated to the Jays in Sears at the Eaton Centre.

TO APRIL 26 Fans of the Toronto Raptors didn’t expect their team to make this year’s NBA playoffs—it’s been a rebuilding season, after all. But the hard-working squad can still make things tough on the competition as the regular season winds down. Among the best dates to cheer on Andrea Bargnani, DeMar DeRozan and company: April 11 against the athletic Philadelphia 76ers, April 13 versus the hated Boston Celtics, and April 16, when the Atlanta Hawks fly into town.
