A sportswriter for a day

Just before Christmas, The Globe and Mail held a charity raffle open to all employees, with the grand prize being a chance to take in a full day of Toronto Maple Leafs' activities alongside a sports reporter and file a story.

"A day in the life of a sportswriter," as it were.

My good friend Pete Evans, a copyeditor with the paper's special reports department and a lifelong Leafs fan, was the raffle's lucky winner, and today is his big day to spend at the Air Canada Centre with columnist David Shoalts. Pete took in the morning skate and is in the ACC press box at the moment, working on a masterpiece for the web on the '67 Leafs who were honoured prior to the game.

It should go up online in the near future, and when it does, I'll have a link here.

I trust he gets standard freelance rates?

Good article. Maybe the Globe should make this opportunity open to the public.
