Product Description

Review

"Jay Onrait has finally found a medium in which he stands a chance to succeed. Stick with the books, kid! Television is just not your thing. And get rid of the other guy immediately." — Regis Philbin

"I'm not going to be one of those people who say something mean about Jay Onrait just for a cheap laugh and a chance to get on his book cover. Besides, who the hell is Jay Onrait?" - Peter Mansbridge

"When I first met Jay Onrait, he was essentially an intern at TSN. I would berate him daily and make him do silly dog tricks to humiliate him in front of the staff. But if that is in this book, I will sue his ass." - James Duthie

"There are only a few people who can carry off a Superman unitard in public and Jay Onrait isn't one of them. As I watched security haul him away at the London Olympics, I said to myself: 'Hello, book blurb!'" — Lisa LaFlamme

"Seriously, a book by Jay Onrait is not to be taken seriously. Except by Jay Onrait, who was driven by the need to work on his spelling." — Dave Hodge

"I can't remember if we've ever met or if I've even heard Jay Onrait speak, but I do know that a book from him at this stage must mean he's set to retire... so it can't be all bad, right?" — George Stroumboulopoulos

About the Author

JAY ONRAIT has been connecting with Canadian television viewers for the past 15 years on outlets such as Winnipeg’s The Big Breakfast, The NHL Network’s On The Fly, CTV’s Olympic Morning, MuchMore’s The Week That Was, and TSN’s Sportscentre—after his failed childhood attempt at becoming an NHL star (note: he never had a shot). Jay won the 2011 Gemini for Best Sportscaster and now, along with Dan O’Toole, is a host for FoxSports1.

I am a huge sports fan who grew to love catching my highlights from Jay Onrait and his partner in crime Don O'toole.
Unfortunately Mr. Onrait has moved on to bigger and other things, but this book allows readers to look back on some of the more memorable moments in Jay's career.

I miss his dearly every morning, but I am proud of all Canadians who out grow our borders and move on to show their greatness to the rest of the World.

This book is a great read, from Dan O'toole preamble all the way till the last page, any sports fan would love to get this book in their stocking. A great read for anyone aged 13-169.

What good Canadian boy doesn't dream of one day sitting behing the Sports Centre desk, get an inside look on what life is really like.

Great book, great read, good ol' Canadian boy. I eagerly await Dan O'toole's book about growing up on a farm in Peterborough and attending a one class room school.

I give this book 5 "Matt Dunigan WHOOOOOA's" out of 5

Fortunately this book was on sale for e-reader. Having watched the Jay and Dan show a few times on TSN I thought the book might give some insight to their popularity. Disappointing read.

enjoyable read, fun book to pick up to knock out a couple chapters while crushing one.

if you enjoy the podcast or the sports cast, it's a great read

If you followed Jay on TSN, and the Jay and Dan Podcast, and don't purchase this book, you are doing a disservice to your country! Jay is the original Anchorboy! We miss you in Canada Jay...

I'm a big fan of Jay Onrait, and still watch as many clips of him and Dan as I can. This book is everything you would expect, full of one liners and hilarious anecdotes, but it also shows a side of Jay that he keeps well hidden. Definitely worth the read!

Jay's book is actually quite funny...as one would expect I guess. I was pleasantly surprised by how candid he was when it came to sharing his stories about his rise through the broadcasting ranks. I quite enjoyed it.

Big fan of Jay from his work on TSN, but this book didn't quite deliver. It's a short read, not very interesting and of little substance.

Anchorboy is an excellent and easy read. Jay Onrait provides a humourous look at his career but makes sure not to treat everything as comedy. A good balance.
