My name's Jon. I was born and raised in Toronto and lived there until the age of 18 when I moved to Ottawa, Ontario to study at Carleton University. Starting in September of 2013, I will be attending the College of Sports Media in downtown Toronto, with the goal of getting into sports media in the future.
I grew up loving sports, and my first two loves in life were the Toronto Maple Leafs and Chicago Cubs, thanks to my late grandfather. Despite the fact that neither of them have won a championship in my lifetime, I feel blessed to be a part of the two greatest fan bases in the world of sports.
I'm currently a featured columnist for the Toronto Maple Leafs, but also write about the NHL, the Baltimore Ravens, the Toronto Blue Jays, the Chicago Cubs, the Seattle Mariners (and all sorts of other baseball news), the Denver Nuggets, the Duke Blue Devils, and I'll write the occasional article on college football.
I'm always up for a good sports conversation and am found on twitter nearly every hour of the day @JawnReid. Feel free to hit me up on there anytime.

You still think that Dickey trade was good ;)
I am going to catch up to u
No problem. Thanks for the thanks!
No problem, Jon. Keep up the great work!
My pleasure. Sorry that hockey is over. The summer drought begins.
You've been writing some solid pieces on the trade. Great job
No problem, Jon. Glad I could help. If you're referring to this upcoming draft, we're pretty far down, but the draft is so deep I think we'll walk away with a quality pick or two. I see a lot of reports of the Ducks eyeing Ian McCoshen—and I love big D-men! Interested to see the battle between the pipes next season between Optimus Reim and Bernier.
You're welcome for the edits, Jon. I think it's always better to link to the original source of a story, which in this case is the tweet. I think that it's best to embed the tweet into the story, but to be honest, I don't know how to do that, so I inserted the link. In the next graf, you refer to the Edmonton Journal story, so I didn't really place that source—I just added another one.
You're welcome, Jon! Keep up the good work.
Redundant maybe, but I tend to opt for a "better safe than sorry" mentality with hyperlinks. Where the Leafs are concerned, I really am hoping they can make this a competitive series.
