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.

Behind the Scenes at Toronto FC Management Team Presser with Jonathan

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.

Find me on Twitter

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…

This Blog

My apologies. It seems I spend a whole lot more time reading blogs, then actually writing them. I’ve neglected you, Big Thinker Blog. For this, I am sorry. Once my new site gets up and running, I promise to share once again.

So what’s new…

I’ve been helping a bunch of people with their Facebook Fan Pages.
I finished up my 2nd year writing for Fuel Mag. Look out for that!
I seem to be connecting many people to… um… many people.
Excited for Toronto FC and making the Champs League group stage.

I’m thinking that when it’s all said and done, the guy in the pic below could very well be the best player in MLS history.

Until next time…
