This is the view from my car:
Winter has returned and because it’s time to pick up my granddaughter from school, it’s raining.
Not cold though, so there’s no need to have the engine running with the heater on.
I’m guessing though if I was in North America, or Canada, in Winter, I’d be outside shovelling the snow, so I wouldn’t get snowed in.
And as bad as that sounds, if this was a COVID 19 free world, being in Canada would be my first choice.
The obvious reason, even though it’s the height of summer there, its because the Maple Leafs are in the play-offs, and I know I missed the first two games, but I did get to see the third, moving our time.
It was, in the end, heartbreaking, and I know if Chester was still alive, he’d have some very interesting comments on their performance.
But that was him, for my money, they tried hard, had their chances, and the breaks didn’t go their way. I mean 3 to 0 up, and to lose in overtime???
It’s probably the reason why its raining.
Perhaps well get thw next game and it will be down to that all important fifth. I know, with the miracle of the internet, I’ll be there in spirit.
And playing without a crowd? It must make it hard for Toronto not having tens of thousands of their loyal supporters cheering them on.
Only one thing left to say:
Go leafs Go!!!!
