Canada's Funniest Sports Guys Are Coming Home And People Are So Excited


Posted on

These two goofballs are Jay Onrait and Dan O'Toole, two Canadians sports broadcasters who were cruelly ripped away to America four years ago.


They were once the beloved hosts of SportsCentre on TSN, but moved to Fox Sports 1 in LA back in 2013. This was generally considered a loss for Canada, and therefore the world.

Here's a highlight reel of their time at TSN, for the uninitiated. It was a good time.

On Wednesday, TSN announced they'd "reacquired" the pair.

BREAKING: The biggest acquisition of #TradeCentre so far. Jay Onrait and Dan O'Toole will return to TSN.


And Canadians are rejoicing.

@TSN_Sports @TSNBobMcKenzie ^all of Canada today

It's really the best thing to come out of the NHL Trade Deadline.

So far the most exciting news from #NHLTradeDeadline is @JayOnrait and @otoolethehobo coming back to @TSN_Sports !!

It's just rare for America to give us something back, ya know?

Jay Onrait and Dan O'Toole...#PackYourShit Get out of America right now..and get your asses back up to Canada asap.

It's a sports miracle.

HOLY FN BOATS IT FINALLY HAPPENED Hell hath frozen over welcome home boys @JayOnrait @otoolethehobo #backwhereyoubelong @TSN_Sports


Maybe Americans just don't appreciate our sense of humour.

Obviously, wit, humour and sports knowledge was lost on most Americans. Welcome home @JayOnrait and Dan.

Like shouting "BOBROVSKY!"
