Hello, sports fans. My name is Carter Robinson. I’m a retired high school history teacher from Toronto. Although I relocated to sunny Florida, I still miss the cold and snows of winter. My lovely wife of 43 years and I spent a few glorious, frozen days at the Winter Carnival in Quebec City, one of my favourite cities (Florida is warm but otherwise: blah!). I passionately follow Canadian sports and am thankful to gamingpost.ca for the chance to ruminate as I see fit about sports twice a week. I don’t have the prerequisites to be considered an “expert” sports reporter. I’m not fat; I don’t smoke big fat cigars; and I don’t have a post-doc in sports expertness. I just call them as I see them.
