It's all good. Ottawa usually wins -- in convincing fashion, no less -- the meaningless games between the Senators and Maple Leafs.
In the hopes of catching Jose Bautista's 50th bomb of the season, I chose the Toronto Blue Jays over the Leafs. A wise decision, if I do say so myself. I PVRed Leafs TV's Game In An Hour, though. I know, they've got Game In Six Minutes now, too, but that clearly isn't enough torture for me. I prefer a full 60. Anyway, I was fully aware Toronto had been spanked 5-0. Yet I still wasted an hour of my life watching the preseason highlights, if I can even bloody call them that. It's a disease, being a fan of this team. It truly is.
Two things are certain:
1. I never, ever again want to see Nick Foligno blow by Dion Phaneuf the way he did Tuesday night.
2. I'm going to have to buy one of those goddamned new Leafs jerseys. I hate you so much sometimes, MLSE.
And about the Maple Leafs being booed off the ice: those fans paid good money to be there, and had every right to do so. Oh, wait, that's right, they didn't spend a dime. Well done, Toronto. Well done.
