First Person

See The Leafs Live And Realize: They're Bad

I lucked into a pair of, er, standing room tickets for the Leafs loss against the Boston Bruins Monday.

I predicted that I would be able to sit by the second period, assuming the crowd would be leaving in droves as soon as the Leafs fell behind far enough. But the team kept the game close and closed the gap further with 11 minutes remaining in the third. They did eventually lose 3-2 in a Leafs' classic: get everyone's hopes up and crush 'em.

The Leafs are a weak team prone to mistake; you can see that on television but live it's ever more comical. And a bit disappointing.
