Let There Be Music – And Some Wins, Please

I mentioned on Twitter the other day that I was working on something special in my secret lair. Here it is, in honour of the 2010-2011 Toronto Maple Leafs’ season: The Toronto Maple Leafs Song. (Update 1:12 a.m.: I’ve been trying on and off all night to post a link to the .mp3 file on […]

Nice Column. Um, How About Vaccuuming, Dude?

A New Day Dawning in Leafland?

Sleep was deep, my breakfast was good, and the pot of tea hit the spot. I have completed and posted the piece I promised on Brian Burke and the NHL trade deadline. It sets out the reasonable expectations that Maple Leaf fans everywhere should have of our angry […]

Revolution: The Storming of the Gondola Continues

One of the things I didn’t know about Ron Wilson is that he is, and has been for some time, a bit of a tech nerd. Here’s a link to an AP story from four years ago, when Wilson was still coaching the San Jose Sharks.

On Fanhood

I happened to be watching the Leafs on Hockey Night in Canada while milling about more or less aimlessly in a “live” game thread on the Pension Plan Puppets site. Basically, I hung out in a virtual basement (I don’t know if it was Chemmy’s or P3’s house) with a bunch of my fellow Leaf […]

…Toronto running Bryan McCabe out of town. […]

Live Blogging Leafs vs. Islanders

7:30 – I tune in to Leafs TV and bemoan the fact that although the signal is being offered in HDTV this year, my local cable company has elected not to provide an HD feed. Learn that Andrew Raycroft is starting in goal. Reflect on the fact that as a Leaf fan, I may consequently […]

Norwood is Lining one Up…

Game 5 of the Sabres/Rangers series was last night. That game, to me, was an out-and-out thriller that almost got ruined by the number of penalties called. The Sabres seemed a little like sprinters trying to run with bowling shoes on; they just didn’t seem to be able to get going properly in the right […]

Like the Giants/Bills Superbowl, only different

The State of New York is holding its breath tonight . Tomorrow, round 2 of the National Hockey League playoffs begins in earnest as the Number 1 seeded Sabres meet the 6th-ranked Rangers in what promises to be the most interesting of the two Eastern Conference semi-finals. Don’t worry, Connecticut, your big Empire State brother […]
