Who You Calling an "Ex-Leaf"??

By now, I'm sure that some of you have seen the story about "Breakfast with Scot" (covered in Can't Stop The Bleeding, Just Another Blog On Sports, and elsewhere), a movie being filmed in Ontario about a gay hockey player and his lawyer boyfriend raising an 11-year-old boy together.

Here's how TSN in Canada posted the story:

Unfortunately, the TSN story links to the TSN player profile of Tom Cavanagh, who plays in the AHL for the Worcester Sharks (note the one less "u" in his name) and who is neither an ex-Leaf nor gay as far as we know (though he does play for Worcester, so anything's possible).

The "other" Tom Cavanagh

Perhaps TSN should stick to curling or whatever else it is they cover up there; it's not like hockey is all that big in Canada, anyway.
