The Leafs have never met a lead they couldn’t give up.
Now back to sleep.
These NBC commentators’ voices are cracking like pre-pubescent boys.
In your face, everybody physically around me at all times!

Women’s Hockey, Gold
We watched this in a lounge room at work. Big crowd. Four Canadians heckling 20 or so Americans after we tied it up in the last minute. I got a lot of funny looks when I yelled when the winning goal was scored in OT.
So, I thought that I need a local team to cheer for. A fallback, if you will. A team I can actually watch on local cable.
I’ve decided to go with the Islanders.
I mean, sure, since I don’t care about the Blue Jays, I could have picked the Mets (not the Yankees, no, that’s a given), and since the NFL isn’t in Canada, there are probably a couple of football teams.
I’ve got to stick to hockey, though. It’s what I know. Not the Rangers. They’ve got some dick fans and a long history of, in my opinion, throwing money around buying high-profile players for show.
Since the Islanders are moving to Brooklyn (sorry, openareas), they’ll even be local!
My first love will always be the Leafs, of course.
