Sports Quick Hits: November 8th, 2021


November 08, 2021

🏃‍♀️Running: Canadian Lanni Marchant finished 11th at yesterday’s NYC Marathon, crossing the line in two hours 32 minutes 54 seconds. The former Canadian women’s marathon record-holder battled back from multiple injuries and surgeries to participate in her first official marathon in five years. Don’t call it a comeback.

🏒Hockey: Hey Google, play “Hot N Cold” by Katy Perry. After losing four in a row last month, the Toronto Maple Leafs have now rattled off five straight wins. They face the LA Kings — who are on a four-game win streak of their own — tonight at 7:30 p.m. ET. The 6ix jokes write themselves.

🏀Raptors: Though Pascal Siakam returned from a shoulder injury to make his season debut yesterday, the Raps still fell 116–103 to the Brooklyn Nets, two days after having their win-streak snapped by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

  • The good news? Toronto has yet to lose on the road, and they’re traveling to face the Boston Celtics on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. ET. Pack the snacks.

⚾️Blue Jays: We changed the clocks, but Blue Jays second baseman Marcus Semien still had his golden hour, winning his first career Gold Glove Award last night. We have a feeling there’ll be many more where that came from.
