From the twisted and juvenile mind that brought you the national bestseller Anchorboy comes another rollicking collection of embarrassing stories that’ll make you laugh, cry, and feel just a little bit uncomfortable.
Get ready for more story time with everyone’s favourite Canadian sportscaster, Jay Onrait! Pull up a chair, open a bag of ketchup chips, and join Jay as he reminisces about the times he explored the squalid world of medical marijuana; made a mess of himself on the road to Pittsburgh; waited three hours to see 2 Live Crew in Edmonton; rode a Street Dragon through the laneways of Sochi; got bumped from live TV for Rob Ford; and shared a drink with Jay-Z . . . and was then asked to leave.
You’ll find all this and more of the same inside Number Two by Jay Onrait.

Jay Onrait is a Canadian television personality, author, and sports anchor. Born in Calgary and raised in Athabasca, Alberta, Jay’s big break came when he landed a job co-hosting TSN’s SportsCentre alongside Dan O'Toole. In 2013, Jay and Dan joined the launch of the new Fox Sports 1 network as hosts of their flagship show, Fox Sports Live. Somewhere along the way, Jay found time to write two bestselling memoirs, Anchorboy and Number Two, and co-create the wildly successful Jay and Dan Podcast. Jay lives with his wife and daughter in Los Angeles.
“Of all the Canadians I have worked with in Hollywood, Jay Onrait is definitely one of them.” (Martin Short)
“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 says 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)
“Jay is in desperate of need of paycheck, so he wrote another book. Please take him back Canada.” (Andy Roddick)
“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 fell in love with Jay Onrait the day I flashed him on National Television. It was more exciting for me than him, but we both were willing to do anything for ratings. . . Anything. RIP Jay. I will miss your packed lunches.” (Charissa Thompson)
