Steve Buffery, Toronto Sun
Born and raised in Toronto, Steve Buffery grew up around the corner from the Sun's Rob Longley and attended the same high school in Etobicoke - Vincent Massey Collegiate. He studied journalism at Humber College, then worked at the Etobicoke Guardian before joining the Toronto Sun in 1985. Buffery covered Olympic sports for 15 years, winning three Dunlop Awards for sportswriting and, in 1996, was named sportswriter of the year by the Sports Federation of Canada. Also in 1996, Buffery was a National Newspaper Award finalist. Buffery has also covered the Leafs, Toronto Raptors, boxing, mixed martial arts - you name it. He currently writes a humour column (Leave it to Beezer), when he's not pontificating on the state of professional sports in North America. Buffery still lives in Etobicoke.
