    Good morning Amy,
    I listen to your show daily as I work as a dispatcher in the wee hours of the morning up here in Ontario Canada. I was listening today about the Toronto fans booing KD in game 5 here in Toronto. Unless these people who are criticizing the fans were at the game I feel, they should not be making such negative comments. I know several people who were at the game and cleared it up for myself. Apparently when he went down the cheers were when Serge looked as though he made a steal on KD and got the basket. The fans had no clue he was hurt as bad as he was. They immediately ( or within 60 sec) started chanting his name and giving him a round of applause on his way out of the arena. Any other fan in any other arena would have reacted the exact same way if it were Kawhi. How about we report on the positive of how the fans immediately cheered for his well being after the realization of the seriousness of his injury. Then to paint the whole of Canada based on a 10 sec reaction is absurd. However, I understand negative news often gets more ratings than the feel good story. Especially when its Canada vs USA. ( for the record my husband is American)I do respect and appreciate you and your opinions on the show.

      Thanks so much for the comments Sarah and I will make sure to pass this directly to Amy. This is not her show but she was a guest on our podcast and we were honored to have her as a guest. We hope you listen to her story. In terms of the play with KD and the fans booing, I felt it was overblown as well because initially it just looked like he slipped and Serge took off down the court with the ball which of course would have fans cheering. Can the Raptors win tomorrow night?
