celebrating the Leafs

Now here are true Leafs fans. It’s Monday night, the second period is over and the Leafs are leading 2 to 1. I know this because at the end of my home class, I turned on the TV and watched on mute for two and a half minutes. I truly do not care whether a bunch of incredibly overpaid athletes win or lose, and I don’t understand how people feel so little tension and drama in their own lives that they have to invent it.

However, tonight’s outcome matters deeply to people I love and to the city I love.

So, I will say it, loud and clear: GO LEAFS GO!
