OH, GOODBYE CANADA: The NATIONAL POST's Sean Fitz-Gerald notes TSN "SportsCentre" hosts Jay Onrait and Dan O'Toole's "final spin through the Canadian highlight reels will take place on Friday" in advance of their move to FS1. They will be in L.A. on July 8, "beginning rehearsals" for their roles as lead anchors of the network's flagship program "Fox Sports Live." O'Toole said, "Jay and I were back and forth between: ‘Yeah, we’re going, no we aren’t; yeah we are.'" Onrait added, "In the end, it was like, ‘What’s the worst that can happen?' We didn’t want to be 75-year-old men saying, 'Why didn’t we just go to L.A. for a couple of years in our 30s? We could have always come back. What the hell were we thinking?'" TSN Senior VP/Production Mark Milliere said that the "door for Onrait and O'Toole to return is 'absolutely' open" (NATIONAL POST, 6/28).
