Toronto Blue Jays favoured to win AL East

The Toronto Blue Jays are favoured to clinch the AL East, and advance to the playoffs this season, according to a new Toronto Sun report.

Twenty years after the team’s 1993 World Series win over the Philadelphia Phillies, the Sun writes the Jays’ strong offense and pitching rotation are what will lead them to victory.

 “I’ll tell you how good the Jays are going to be,” said Philadelphia Phillies broadcaster Gary Matthews, to the paper, “They’ll be so good the president will stay for all nine innings – no sneaking out after six or seven.”

Do you believe the hype? The ‘boys of summer’ will face the Cleveland Indians to kick-off the season at the Toronto Blue Jays home opener on Tuesday night, at 7:07 p.m.

Trudeau cuts hair for pandas?

Liberal heir-apparent Justin Trudeau has reportedly put a lock of his trademark curly hair up for auction on eBay, in order to raise money for panda conservation.

The Huffington Post Canada exclusively broke the news on April Fool’s Day, writing the leadership frontrunner will start his charity auction at just $60.

“Justin Trudeau loves pandas, and if Justin Trudeau can help pandas by cutting his perfect hair, then Justin Trudeau is going to cut it off,” writes the Huffington Post Canada.

All proceeds from Trudeau’s fundraising will go to the Panda Procreation Project, a.k.a. PPP, a Chinese charity focused on boosting conservation and breeding efforts by whatever means necessary. After all, the country has a place in the (panda) bedrooms of the nation.

But, is this news too good — and funny — to be true? In the words of Justin Trudeau’s handwritten note, and his father’s iconic speech, “Just watch me.” In other words, yes, yes it is.

Happy April Fool’s Day!

Big Celebrity Apprentice firing

Spoiler alert: Omarosa got the boot?! The boardroom-averse Celebrity Apprentice star finally went face-to-face with Donald Trump on Sunday, and well, she got fired.

Alongside Project Manager Lil Jon and international peacemaker Dennis Rodman, the trio were part of the losing team, and failed to raise the highest amount of money for their celebrity-created — and inspired — art. The team headed by Lisa Rinna — and assisted by magician Penn Jillette — came away victorious.

Omarosa had avoided the final boardroom for weeks, despite being on the losing team, because she was not selected by the team’s project manager, much to Trump’s chagrin.

For Sunday’s task, Lil Jon raised a total of $82,500, Omarosa raised $12,000 and Rodman raised $10,000, but showed great tenacity, and a “great story,” both qualities Trump loves, despite the self-proclaimed reality villainess’ 1-0 assignment record.

Was the right person fired?
