I don’t post much about soccer on here, maybe because Liverpool is in my blood and I take it for granted. But I can say that after the Leafs took their annual swandive into mediocrity (just kidding! I still love you guys! Come baaaack!) and I settled in to watch Steven Gerrard inch even closer to the EPL title he so greatly and desperately deserves, things started feeling just a little bit better. And by that I mean “me on my living room floor sobbing at the TV when Stevie G started crying at the end of the Man City match” better.

"I was raised mostly by my mom, and when I was younger I didn’t appreciate how hard it was for her to be a single parent. She had to take care of me and my brothers, work, and deal with everything in her own life too. She made a lot of sacrifices for us. I grew up in Parkdale and if you wanted to get involved in trouble, you could. Easily. There were times that I was pretty close to going down the wrong path, but she never let me. Respecting women was always implicit in my family because the head of our household was a strong woman. She was the boss and we all had reverence for that." Jordan Sowunmi
