In 2002, the Toronto Maple Leafs were facing the Ottawa Senators in the second game of the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Sens won the first game; so game 2 was seen as a must win for the Leafs. I watched every second of that game, hoping that my beloved Leafs would win. That game went to overtime. After one overtime period, the game was still tied, and I turned off the television. Why? Because it was my Easter, and I had to leave for church. I didn’t find out, until I heard on the radio on the way home, that the Leafs had won the game in the third overtime period. May my commitment to God never be questioned. I missed triple overtime!
Tonight, the Toronto Maple Leafs play the Montreal Canadiens in a win-or-die game; and of course, I have to go to church for Easter.
