For Jay Gotlieb, he has cast his lots with the major clubs of his youth: the Toronto Maple Leafs, Dallas Cowboys, the Toronto Blue Jays, and naturally supports every other Toronto sports team. He’s also a huge fan of tennis and golf– in fact he does not only watch the sports, but Jay plays tennis almost every day and golfs as much as he can.
