Emily Cornelius

Sports writer with a love for the gritty analytics of the game, but a soft spot for the underdog.

Big time Sports Fan - My first words were 'Juan Guzman.' I pay my bills as an Advertiser here in Toronto, but Sports and writing have always been my true passion. I can usually be found either playing slo-pitch, at the Jays or Leafs game, yelling loudly at my TV from the couch, lecturing my beagle on the importance of clearing the puck, or scouring Twitter for insider information. I am living proof that a girl can grow up a Leaf fan and not be too emotionally scarred.
