Hey hockey fans! This seems to be the ideal place to blog if you're a Leaf fan so this is where I'll start my journey. I guess I'll give you some background so most of you will be able to relate to my mindset and the level of my disgrunt within Leafs Nation.
I've been a Leaf fan my entire life, or at least for as long as I can remember. I'm a product of the 70's and a child of the 80's, so I grew up watching the dismal Leaf teams of the Harold Ballard era. I rejoiced in the turnaround that was the first Fletcher era, rode the highs and lows of the Quinn era and wallowed in the misery of the JFJ era.
Now I reluctantly forge ahead optimistically amidst the unknown entity but never-boring rollercoaster ride that is the Burke era. Personally, I'm enjoying it despite the fact we really haven't made any progress standings-wise. I love the unpredictability, the passion Burke illicits whether he makes a move or not and the shockwaves it creates when he does. I can't wait to see how it all plays out.
So let's all buckle up, enjoy the scenery and hang on tight....it's gonna be a bumpy ride. But if I know Brian Burke, it's going to be a lot of fun. And here's hoping the Leafs will make the playoffs this year. We deserve it.
I'm going to try to have a fun, enjoyable, thought-provoking blog all hockey fans, not just Leaf fans and Leaf haters alike will appreciate. Along with my thoughts, feelings, beliefs and reaction to Leaf news, I'll have fun stuff like trivia, facts, lists and parody type blogs. I'll start that with weekly NHL Who Am I? trivia posts every Friday.
Enjoy and Go Leafs Go!
