Toronto Sun: BROCHACHO BROUHAHA: Did Josh Donaldson shade the Blue Jays?!


Former Blue Jays star Josh Donaldson served up a double play of diss for his former team.

The Bringer of Rain and former MVP signed a one-year contract for $23 million with the ascendant Atlanta Braves and had some choice words for the wrecking crew currently dismantling the team that got the city excited about baseball again.

What a terrible web page - they don't tell you what Donaldson said, but they manage to find a bunch of ways to tell you to engage with them (Tweet us! Facebook us! Watch our video! Leave a comment!).

Complete with a video that auto plays, the surest way to make me leave a site immediately.

Sure, the Toronto Sun has an awful format, but it also has awful content, so doesn't it sort of make sense?

Does any city have a tabloid format newspaper that isn't a pile of crap?

"Shade"? "Diss"? This does sound like a first-class publication.

That's how the kids talk today Leroy. By using those words the Sun is showing it is hip and with it. Word.

I think we can all agree that by the time a piece of (ahem) "urban" slang makes it to Canada, it clearly is no longer urban slang. Am I right peeps?
