The Boys are Back in Town!
For most people, the Labour Day Weekend signifies the end of Summer work hours and leisurely post work drinks on a busy patio. But for Veronica it means a few short weeks before the start of her absolute favorite sport, hockey, and more specifically her boys in blue, The Toronto Maple Leafs!
Yes, they haven’t won a cup since 1967 and haven’t made it the playoffs since the 2003-2004 season. They didn’t make it very far but they still made it. It is embarrassing and a bit sad, but rebuilding takes time. And with a slew of young, new talent, under the helm of Brian Burke, it’s only a matter of time before we return to our former glory. After all, the Leafs are the most valuable team in the NHL, that should count for something!
The boys take to the ice on Monday September 19th against the Ottawa Senators (boooo) at the ACC at 7pm. You can also watch on LeafsTV if you don’t want to spend money on watching a bunch of scrubs play hard for a spot on the roster.
