Strength of Character

Okay, so it took a while to get to the post game wrap up 'round here. What can I tell you, I was waylaid by ecstasy (NOT the pharmaceutical kind); and that sort of joy has been in kind of short supply for Leaf fans since the lockout. Aside from the 4-3 Leaf OT Victory, I was enjoying (via the wonders of the PVR) the Ticats' triumphant 30-3 curbstomping of the Argonauts to formally clinch a playoff berth. I can tell you from personal experience as a Leafs fan for more than 35 years and a Ticats fan since the days of Jason Maas, there haven't been a lot of nights like that in recent days. Good times. Here's how the Leafs game went as I saw it (note: this is an impressionist recap, not an excursion into hyper-reality. If you want that, wait for James Cameron's next 3-D extravaganza):

It Begins.

For a hockey fan, hope springs eternal in the fall. Summer ends today, my team is back on the ice and I'm absolutely stoked to get my first look at Versteeg in a Leafs' uni; to scope out Jerry D'Amigo and Jussi Rynnas; to leave the failure of last year behind. I am ready to love this team again.
