It was 4-1.

Rough Weekend

with 8 comments

Four games, two each for the Maple Leafs and Raptors, Friday evening through Sunday afternoon. Four losses. Another shutout of the Leafs’ so-called “offence.” Another broken foot for Reggie Evans. His other one, believe it or not.

I miss the Blue Jays. No, they didn’t make the playoffs. They weren’t even close. But they won more games than they lost. And that fact wasn’t lost on my mental health.

I picked the wrong time of year to quit drinking for six weeks. But, deep down, I know the truth: There’s no right time to quit drinking. Not when you’re immersed in Toronto’s postseason abyss.

Jay Triano, fast becoming the best quote in town, with the final words:

“You go one-through-five. I’m not going to pin it on DeMar. DeMar got outplayed by Joe Johnson. Jose got outplayed by Mike Bibby. Andrea got outplayed by Josh Smith. Sonny got outplayed by Marvin Williams. Joey got outplayed by Al Horford. Fuck. Okay?  … I mean, I’m not picking on our starters for getting outplayed. Amir didn’t outplay anybody on their bench either. Leandro didn’t… They beat us. Every single position. Every single guy got beat.”

  2. Congrats on making it six weeks without drinking. As unpopular an opinion as this may be I believe alcohol to be incredibly overrated…

  3. Thanks Mattt. It’s been easier than I thought it would be, but difficult at the same time. I’d agree with you, booze is overrated, but depending on time and place, sometimes there’s nothing better than a beer, or a scotch. Cheers.

  4. This is important due to this profession because business
    or professional of locksmith and especially auto locksmith is
    becoming more and more sophisticated. First, you don’t panic, and then you dial Maywood Locksmiths automobile locksmith service that is available for
    emergency lockouts twenty four hours per day. There are several designs and models
    available in the market these days depending on one’s needs.
    So find the right locksmith even if you do not need one, but for you
    to have one in the background, in case you do need that locksmith.

    Well, you should take time to evaluate the services
    of each company before you decide on the one to hire.

  5. Well, this is not a hillside club, but a restaurant dishing out authentic Coorg cuisine.
    30 pm and the dinner is served from 5 pm to 10 pm on weekdays and up to 11
    pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Add a few drops of lime
    juice or vinegar when they are almost done. Spain
    is supposed to be the first European country into which this plant was first introduced.
