The Toronto Blue Jays today announced that they have recalled outfielder Anthony Gose from the Buffalo Bisons. To make room, RHP Mickey Storey has been optioned to Buffalo.
Gose has played in a team-high 40 games for the Bisons this year and has hit .227 (35-154) with five doubles, two triples, two home runs and 12 RBI. His 36 runs scored are six more than any player in the International League and he has five stolen bases in nine attempts. One of those stolen bases was a straight steal of home on May 7 against the Norfolk Tides.
Eleven current and former professional football and baseball players — including current Buffalo Bills Fred Jackson and TJ Graham — will be on hand to sign autographs at the Sports Collectors Expo taking place Feb. 9 and 10 at the Clarion Hotel, 8250 Park Road, Batavia. Show hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.
Figure skating fans from around the world will be heading to nearby London, Ontario for the 2013 ISU World Figure Skating Championships.

Tickets are available online at www.budweisergardens.com, by phone at 1-866-455-2849 and in-person at the Budweiser Gardens (formerly the John Labatt Centre) box office.
If we’re talking boats and fishing, it must be a sure sign that spring is right around the corner. Well, maybe not right around the first corner, but you get the idea!
London, Ontario’s well-known home for concerts, events, exciting hockey courtesy of the London Knights and full-filled basketball with the London Lightning now has a new name. Gone is the familiar John Labatt Center nameplate, replaced by the equally recognizable Budweiser Gardens moniker.
A soft transitioning of the venue to Budweiser Gardens began several months ago, with the official re-opening of the building held on Oct. 11 – the 10th anniversary of the venue.
FORT ERIE, ONT. - November 11th is the day to remember those men and women who sacrificed their lives for our freedom. LEST WE FORGET!!!!
Saturday November 10th 1979 also holds a memory so dear to me I remember it like it was yesterday. That day McMaster’s second team took on Queen’s in the OUAA division II rugby final staged at York University.
FORT ERIE, ONTARIO - Notre Dame is having the football season of a lifetime surging towards their first undefeated campaign and possible national title since 1988.
The Fighting Irish have been my team ever since they captured the 1973 national championship with a 24-23 win over the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Sugar Bowl on New Year’s Eve. That night QB Tom Clements stood deep in his end zone with less than a minute remaining - before hitting little used Robin Weber on a 35-yard, post pattern to earn the first down and preserve the victory.
Hamilton, Ontario - The final curtain call is just days away.
Barring a playoff miracle, the curtain will rise and fall for the final time at Ivor Wynne Stadium this Saturday afternoon when the Hamilton Tiger Cats host the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
And if the Cats are to have any chance of a playoff appearance and a possible home playoff date - they’ll have to give a command performance against a Bomber team which also has its sights set on a playoff berth.
In just a few shorts weeks, thousands of avid skiers, snowboarders and outdoor enthusiasts will make their annual pilgrimage to the quaint Village of Ellicottville in Western New York’s southern tier for some excitement on the slopes. And for those not interested in conquering the hills, the shopping, restaurants and nightlife aren’t too bad either!
The Hamilton Tiger Cats are down to their ninth life as the team’s post-season hopes are quickly fading.
The team has to win its three remaining games and hope the Argos or Eskimos lose their last three to guarantee the Cats a second place finish in the East or fourth place via of the crossover in the West.
The way the Cats fell to the BC Lions last Friday night in Hamilton - it appears the Tabbies have already danced their final waltz of the 2012 regular season even though they have three games remaining.
