Sorry to have been so absent, but life intrudes.
I just wanted to take a moment to express Toronto’s sympathy to both Calgary and Montreal as they exit the 2006 Stanley Cup Playoffs — Calgary, in your own building? A shut-out? To Ducks? Oh, Calgary.
As a longtime Leaf fan I know what it’s like to have the entire country watch your failure.
Reasons to still be proud:
Calgary — Maclean’s magazine has recently declared you the new centre of the Canadian universe! If you need pointers on handling the rest of the country’s barely suppressed rage towards you, call me.
Montreal — Come on, you’re Montreal! Dress more stylishly than everyone else, take some wine to your favorite restaurant, get laid.
Um, Ottawa… let’s talk in a couple weeks.
