This week I decided to give ol’ Jeffy boy a well deserved break from the mailbag. You can only answer so many questions about which Marlie will be the next call up. The result of said takeover was a number of replies disappointed that Bobby Cappuccino or literally any other TLN writer didn’t get the mailbag duty instead. For those people this post will be like the Leafs season, full of disappointment. For the rest of you, enjoy the handsome answers to questions by beautiful people.

After picking up four points in ten games in October, we can now classify the Leafs as red hot now that they've picked up four in the first four games in November. November seems to be the month of choice for underperforming Leafs teams, as last season it was November that gave many of the fear that Carlyle would be the head coach forever. Like last year we can probably rest easy that tank will be rolling again soon enough, but for now it's nice to watch some competitive Leafs hockey while we can.

Argos Vs Leafs: What team provides the better experience?

Last week, I attended two (2) Toronto sporting events. The first was on Monday night, when the Toronto Maple Leafs hosted the Stars of Dallas. The second was on Friday night, when I got to see the last Rogers Centre home game the Toronto Argonauts will ever play. Moment of silence please.
