#3775572 Official Toronto Maple Leafs Thread

Posted MapleLeafpoker on 09 February 2019 - 05:56 PM

Thought I would share this:

One of my best friends, when he was 15 and I was 17...decided he would sleepover on Carlton St the night before Leafs playofff tickets went on sale.
So, a few of us drove down to the Gardens, and we dropped him off on a Friday night at 7/8pm, and left him there.(great friends huh?)

He made friends with these older guys in line right behind him, and they helped us by buying some tickets for us.....so 8 of us friends went to 4? playoff games, 4 people at a time. (ya, I was once a pretty big Leafs fan.lol)
The friends he made that night in line would then go on to hire him the following year as part of a high school co-op, and start him off on a 25 year career path, at a business where he would meet people who would marry into his family.
To this day, those friends are some of his best friends. And over the years one friend in particular and my buddy would pair up to become Leafs season tix holders, and they would go on Leafs road trips to Chicago/Buffalo/Mtl.

This year, my friend, his sister, and the lifelong friend he met in line that night, decided they would travel to see the Leafs in every other original 6 city. They did Chicago in the fall, Detroit last week, Mtl tonight, NYR tomorrow. Not sure if Boston was done already or will be.

He sent me pics tonight, looked so cool to be in Mtl as a Leafs fan.

I shared this because its the Leafs, but more so, as I was telling his story to other friends tonight, I realized how incredible life is. The idea that he made lifelong friends/mentors that night in line for a Leafs playoff game, and we had to drop him off at the EXACT moment to put him in that spot in line....crazy to think how life works, where love of sports can lead.

anyway, Go Leafs Go. haha

Dale, remember when you used to be good at fantasy hockey? Those were the days huh?

You guys will remember this draft in a few years as the one that helped create the Whalers ongoing dynasty:

70 Whalers Andrei Altybarmakyan CHI F

No way I should have gotten "Son of Six Fingers" at 70, or even 3 for that matter. Svechnikov, Dahlin, Altybarmakyan is this whole draft....everyone else is just fodder for senseless discussion.

not sure there is a place in the world where I feel more out of my element than inside a gym.

Leafs down by 2 games, have come back to tie the series. Bruins haven't lost 3 straight games all year.
Wizards down by 2 games, have come back to tie the series. Raptors haven't lost 3 straight game all year.
TFC has never won a game in Mexico. They need to win by 2.

3 for 3 tonight baby, lets go!
