Another month down in this continuing series. An autographed card from my collection to highlight a happening in NHL history. 144/146 so far since I started. September looms as training camps will be starting up.

And today I'm going to a baseball game with my daughters.  But not just any old game. Your Toronto Blue Jays vs the New York Yankees. Derek Jeter's last game in Toronto. Also happening in Toronto, Fan Expo (The Two  Captains scheduled for today--Patrick Stewart and William Shatner) And what is Toronto without the annual CNE. It's going to be busy in Toronto . Go Jays Go. Let's hope we're Happ(y) after the game.
