One, I can’t let this day go by without observing that it is the sixth anniversary of that day in Salt Lake City when Canada triumphantly reclaimed Men’s Olympic Hockey Gold after a loooooong drought, by beating a game, but overmatched, U.S. team. That’s us (in the picture to the left), singing ‘O Canada’ (badly out of key) at the Black Swan on Danforth Ave. in Toronto, as the final seconds ticked off the clock.
Two, TSN is reporting that Mats Sundin has announced he will not waive his no-trade clause and will be staying put as the Captain of the Maple Leafs. Leaf fans, it says here, should cut Captain Class some slack and respect his decision. He’s earned the right to choose.
