Behind the Scenes at Toronto FC Presser on Jan 26, 2011 with Jonathan

Behind The Scenes at Toronto FC.

Just before the team heads off to Turkey, I grabbed some footage for you all to see. Check out Dwayne DeRosario answering the tough questions, Nana Attakora and I checking out Head Coach Aron Winter’s fancy shoes, and some clips of writers and producers offering their .02 on the event.

Hope you like the video.

If you want to see anything specific from the Leafs/Raptors/TorontoFC worlds, just let me know and I’ll grab a video!

Cheers for watching!

Toronto Maple Leafs visit The Hospital For Sick Children

For 50 years straight, the Toronto Maple Leafs have been visiting The Hospital for Sick Children.

I’m so blessed to have been a part of it this year.

I tried to capture some footage of the event that you would not see on traditional TV, along with some discussions with players. I really tried to keep it tasteful.

In this video, I speak with Luke Schenn, Colby Armstrong, John Mitchell and Tim Brent.

I really appreciate you watching this. Any suggestion for future videos are more than welcome.

I’m always trying to figure out ways to show people some behind the scenes stuff at Toronto FC. Armed with my camera and little-to-no talent, I just started filming at the recent Toronto FC Press Conference. Above is the finished product. Hope you like it.

Just trying to do my part in building the relationship between fans and the team.

If you ever have a suggestion, or wanna see something, just let me know.

Talk to you soon.

Habitat for Humanity Polar Bear Dip 2011 with @BigThinkerJon

How did you ring in the New Year? I always wanted to jump in the cold waters of Lake Ontario , and, on Jan 1st, I got my chance.

I had a blast at the Habitat For Humanity Polar Bear Dip. Yes, the water was cold, but the people, staff and volunteers were amazing and it was an amazing day! A bunch of money was raised for HFHT which will build one house for one family.

Thanks for watching this video. As always, your comments and support are much appreciated.

Thank you to those who took the time to sponsor me with an online donation. Couldn’t have done it without you!

I’d love to hear about some things you want to do in 2011…

Social Media is…. not Twitter.


Twitter is just one spoke in the wheel. Social Media is about people. People sharing, learning, laughing… you know… being people. Social Media is starting and developing relationships. Social Media lives online, but also in person. Social Media is pretty much part of everything, and it’s everywhere.

Saying a Social Media person’s job is sending Tweets, is kinda like saying a Marketing Director’s Job is buying billboards. Seems kinda small in scope, non?

If you work or play in this world, please let’s all make an effort to educate. But not in a preachy know-it-all kind of way… just in how-friends-talk-to-friends kind of way.

What are your thoughts? Am I way off? Do you agree?

Behind The Scenes Raptors Anthem Single. Nov. 10, 2010

Scotty Newlands surprises you with his voice. He’s not too tall, kinda skinny, and really just looks like a regular dude. Then he starts singing. Boom! He has a set of pipes. I caught him practising at the ACC before the doors opened. Here’s a clip with a sample of him singing and my reaction. Hope to see Scotty back singing soon!

Here’s the clip…
