There's a rumour Tavares is going to throw out the first pitch at the Jays game today. Apparently his decision is going to be written on the ball. The camera is going to zoom in on the ball and the
slo-mo image will be shown on the jumbotron and reveal "Toronto Maple Leafs" written on the ball. Then Tavares is going to rip off his shirt on the mound and reveal a Leafs jersey.
Some people are claiming that's the real reason the roof is closed today... because Tavares would be too hot wearing a jersey underneath his shirt, but I don't believe that.
The left media is definitely guilty of being too quick to latch on to "too good to be true" stories about Trump/the right, and they inevitably spread like wildfire because people are really ready to eat that stuff up right now.
The right media is guilty of deliberately lying to the American people about pretty much everything, and literally working as a propaganda machine for the Republican Party.
Im not one to mention it to random groupings of friends, but I say it here because the fathers on here have helped me be a better father. I've learned a lot from you guys on fatherhood and just being a better person, and felt it right to say it on here and say thanks for making me a better dad. And that goes for many of you on here, not just the Dads.
No need to reply, but please send positive thoughts or the equivalent in what you believe in.
Can't hurt, right?
So, the day before I got rear-ended by a drunk driver, the doctor informed us my youngest had a mass on her spine. She had been complaining of a pain for a year. We had tests done and nothing was found at the time. The doctor thought it was just a knot so we tried massage therapy a couple of times, but my daughter said it hurt too much. It gradually got worse and we had more tests done...MRI, cat scan etc...
The diagnosis is an osteo blastoma. It's a benign (PHEW!!!!!!!!!!!!) growth on the bone. It's about 13 mm in size. We are expecting a call from CHEO in the next day or so and she'll go to Ottawa to have it removed.
I'm going to breathe now for the first time in almost a month.
Still thinking and smiling about being at game 5. I was really conflicted if it was worth all that money, but some good friends convinced me to do it, and frankly I had won the money in a hockey pool, so it was easier to justify.
Hours after this game, we all heard the news about Bourdain, and his books in many ways changed my life+my desires to reach for experiences in life.
As a good friend said to me last night, life is pretty much fcked 8 ways until Sunday. Find any happiness you can.
Life is way too short guys, the next time you have a decision like I had, just go for it. Enjoy it while you can!
I think Fleury has been great, and the last thing I want to do is take something away from him, but no way this is a case of a team riding a hot goalie to wins. This team is ridiculously good at.....I dont know, but they are just so good as a team. They forecheck, they skate, and they play so so hard, and they just outwork you. And yes, like even the best of teams, they need their goalie to play like an MVP to go far in the playoffs. Would be hard to pick anyone but Fleury for MVP of playoffs, but this team just is outplaying others.
This was the first night in a long time I was betting against them, and they even got me now too. I really don't know anymore where this ends, maybe they win it all. Why the hell not?!?!
