I don’t know if this is a sign…but maybe!  Remember the ‘lucky looney’, the buck buried at centre ice for the Salt Lake City Olympics, where Team Canada won gold?  Perhaps for the Toronto Raptors, that lucky charm isn’t a coin…but a whistle!  See, all the whistles the refs are using in these NBA Finals…are Canadian!  Made in Mississauga, just a few miles from the Rap’s home court. Actually, the whistles are a great story of Canadian smarts and ingenuity as reporter Joe Warmington of the Toronto Sun found out!
