There was weeping and wailing
in Toronto Maple Leaf land last night and the
day before. WEEPING AND WAILING AND GNASHING
OF TEETH...BY THE WATERS OF BABYLON,
I KNELT DOWN AND WEPT.
If the Buffalo Sabres were wealthy and brave
enough to bring back Matt Moulson at 25 million
dollars over 5 years... why under all the formerly
bright stars of the milky way couldn't Toronto
Maple Leaf management sea its way clear to
bring back Dave Bolland, who is a far more
valuable player than Matt Moulson?
This is not to sell Moulson short. He's a damn
good player, and probably helps inspire the team,
just like Dave Bolland did for the Maple Leafs...
Only Dave Bolland played a far more important
There's no question about his importance
to the team. Last year the Leafs were on a terrific
and nearly record win streak.
What happened next?
DAVE BOLLAND WAS INJURED
AND THE WIN STREAK WAS OVER...!!!!
But, woe is me! The bright days of winning
are over. Stupidity and greed, once more, have won the
day. Toronto sports fans have just been
Once more this phrase passed through
my head, just as when Bolland was injured
las year: THERE GOES THE SEASON!
I remember one other day, as gloomy as
this one... Many years past, the Toronto Maple Leafs
traded Steve Thomas, at the height of his powers, to
The Leafs wouldn't cough up the necessary 12,000 dollars.... Yes, that was the sticking point - some
paltry sum of money.
And what happened as a result of this
blood simple, short-sided moron-time lack of
THE CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS WON THE CUP!
THE TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS CONTINUED TO WALLOW
IN THE MIRE OF STUPIDITY, BLINDNESS
AND BUNGED-UP BRAIN CRAMPS!
My friends, Leaf Fans across this
noble land, join me this evening as I crawl down to the Don River on my knees, a two hundred pound cross on my back... And by the shore of the River, I will pour ashes on my head and wail at the loss
of hopes that might have been.
Great Babylon has fallen.
The GREED-HEADS in Toronto Maple Leafs
management have done it again!
The MORONS are running the show.
The slathering rabid avaricious fools once
more have won the day.
THE BLIND ARE DRIVING THE BUS!
We are the fans! We're the ones
who pay for this show. Does no one consider us?
Is no one looking out for us? Does no one
care about the Spirit of Toronto?
Leaf fans are smart. We know we've
been screwed. We know this means DOOM
for the team.
