Leafs up 4-1 well into the third period...and Buffalo scores four unanswered goals.
I've been a Leaf supporter since moving to Canada in the early 70's. I had no idea about hockey but the first friend I made was a rabid fan (or as rabid as a 10 year old could be). So in an effort to fit in, I ordered pennants and pins and programs and and pucks and clocks and any other memorabilia I could get my hands on to adorn my walls.
And I stuck with them through the ups and downs (mostly downs), thick and thin (mostly thin)...and I know I'm not alone in that department. And there's been a couple of times over the past decade where I've tried to tune out hockey or get behind another team...but it doesn't seem to be possible.
Do we ever give up on our 'teams'? I mean, I've tried...but dammit if they don't always pull me back in, 'specially this time of year as the playoffs approach.
But time is running on on this season.
