Calling All West Coast Leafs Fans

First off, my sincerest apologies to the reader(s) of this blog. Due to some recent demands on the job front, this blog has been pretty Raptor-heavy lately, to the detriment of our Leafs content and status in the Barilkosphere. However, The Passion is coming back strong over the next few weeks. I promise.

And man alive, what a way to come back. A new player. A surly new GM. A West Coast road trip. And rampant, unsubstantiated trade rumors! Are there any other kind worth reading? Let me go way out on a limb here and say, for the record, that I would support the acquisition of either Nash or Boumeester. Ground breaking blogging going on here, I know.

Anyways, I'm attending tonight's game against the Kings and tomorrow morning I'll be bringing you a full recap of the contest, complete with a full photo essay. I went to the Leafs-Kings game last year and Leafs jerseys outnumbered Kings by 2:1 (while Kings goals outnumbered Leaf goals by 3:1. Ugh).

In fact, I even added Grabs to my fantasy hockey team for tonight - just to give me a little something extra to cheer for. I'll also be wearing my Sundin jersey (as opposed to my Owen Nolan jersey - another stellar jersey choice by yours truly) while my wife wears her pink Leafs jersey (not pictured to the right). No I didn't buy it for her. Yes I make fun of her for wearing it.

Oh, and for the heck of it, a few predictions about this week's west coast extravaganza:

vs. LA: 4-3 win
vs. SJ - 5-1 loss
vs. PHX - 3-2 win

Anyone else attending tonight's festivities should feel free to e-mail me, we can meet up and you can buy me a beer. I'm in Section 108, Row 7.

Go Leafs Go.

Are you trying to say that she doesn't usually look hot?
