Another Example of Why No One Cares for Hockey


The Montreal Toronto Maple Leafs, (this sport is stupid excepting the playoff beards and the fighting) besides having a very imposing name, have been one of the most storied franchises in hockey. Right now they are struggling to make the playoffs and lost last night in an important game against the Boston Bruins where the 8th playoff spot was on the line. The Maple Leafs lost 6-2. Recently named Player of the Week goalie Vesa Toskala was taken out of the game with 3 minutes remaining and the Leafs down by 3. To further illustrate how efficient his game has been recently, and why he definitely deserved the Player of the Week award, check out this goal he allowed the other night against the New York Islanders.

That was only from 197  feet away, I can see how he might have found that so difficult. No wonder no one watches anymore.

    wow, that’s true. yikes…BUT it only proves my point how irrelevant hockey has become, (nicely done ESPN…). Every time i’ve tuned into Versus it’s been logging or fishing… although, for the record, i did tag it correctly originally. I think i just really like alliteration and Montreal Maple Leafs really is a nicer, smoother sounding name to my ear. Frankly, I think it is high time that Montreal and Toronto trade franchises. Throw in youppi and 13 kegs of labatt for the stables kegerator and we’re gonna have a bbq when it gets nice. I’ll bring napkins!
