It is currently 47 degrees with the humidex here in Toronto, and it is expected to rise to 49 later in the day. If it is going to be this disgusting, here's to a nice round 50! The 38 degrees of actual temperature is also only 0.4 degrees below the city's record of 38.4 degrees. Needless to say, I am talking the subway train to lunch.

Anyway, here are today's links:

  • Binghamton forward Kaspars Daugavins has signed a tryout contract with Latvian club Dinamo Riga. However, if he doesn't make the club, it is possible he returns to North America. (Press & Sun-Bulletin)
