TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS FANS GETTING OLDER
For the eighth time in nine years the Toronto Maple Leafs fail to qualify for the NHL post season -- the Stanley Cup Run.
There are two or three regular-season games left for most teams but the Leafs were "mathematically eliminated" last night: The Columbus Blue Jackets won their game against the Phoenix Coyotes and Toronto was zilched by the Tampa Bay Lightning.
What?... the Habs (Montreal Canadiens) are in the playoffs? Whatever. I've had my excitement; the Habs winning the cup would just be icing on the cake.
