It’s also a hockey blog

The Maple Leafs are the unofficial team of barfblog. With both Doug and I from the Toronto area we’ve followed their play from the hockey hotbeds of Brisbane and Raleigh and email each other (along with Leaf’s fan and friend of the blog Steve Naylor) during a lot of games.
Last night there were a few exchanges.

The best of which was from Doug, ‘You should know by now, once the Leafs show up, they’ll disappoint.’ That’s what happens when the team hasn’t won a cup in 51 years.

It’s fun to watch a game that I’m emotionally invested in.

It’s not as much fun when my team loses.

Oh well. Training camp for next season starts in September. The trip to the Yonge St. parade will have to wait another year.
