Meet Greg Stewart

With The Globe and Mail printing a full eight-page Olympic section and the NHL on hiatus, the rest of the sports section has opened up considerably. Enter my story from today's paper, about Greg Stewart, a university basketball player who plays with a prosthetic left arm.

Who knows — maybe having a separate sports section during the Olympics will let the paper include all kinds of stories that otherwise wouldn't find the space.

More later, perhaps.

That's a kickass story, dude.

Worth the wait :)

It would be nice if the papers would spend more time in general on stories that go beyond the usual recap of last night's game and forecast for tonight's rematch. The nonsense about Gretzky and the over-writing of issues around salaries are typical of what is seemingly considered "going beyond." OTOH your story was interesting - and it would be good to see more like it even when the NHL/NBA/MLB/NFL returns.

Great, yet another Mirtle story with a Kamloops connection.

Kidding. Cool story. I'm with those who like this sort of stuff.

It's sort of bizarre that it does have a Kamloops connection -- I hadn't even heard of him until long after I moved to Ontario.
