Due to some roof work being done at City Hall, we need to move things over to the Central Park Bandshell. But no matter where we are, Burlassic Park will roar with every point, rebound and turnover, and I know you will all continue to make me proud. We’ll be back at Civic Square for the rest of this series — and despite the slight setback in Game 2, we’ll be celebrating the NBA Championship coming North! This is Canada’s game and our nation’s moment.
