It's been a heck of a weekend. I helped out Five Hole For Food's spinoff Waterloo tournament all of yesterday, inched my back home today, and got into Toronto just in time for the kickoff of the Italy game. As I had hoped, the Azzurri came out on top, and naturally, I headed to Dufferin and St. Clair to celebrate. But now, I'm home, and can spend some time relaxing. But first, we're still clearing out all of the old mailbag questions! So here's a few more, and hopefully the next few days will provide us with some news so we don't see as many of these posts.

To submit a question, send me a tweetemail meask me, or leave a comment.

The Stanley Cup playoffs are almost over. In fact, the Los Angeles Kings may be hoisting the Stanley Cup above their heads by the time you read this article. With hockey basically done for a couple of months, we need a distraction. What better than a month long soccer tournament? Of course,  I'm talking about the World Cup. Its a magical time where people cheer for a sport they may or may not watch in the name of national pride, and drivers everywhere don't know if they're being honked at or with.

Anyway, James van Riemsdyk tweeted in support of the Netherlands National Team today. Van Riemsdyk,  of course, is a very Dutch surname,  though it conflicts with the fact the United States are in this tournament. Not surprising though; I'm Italian in background, and I'd probably be double cheering if Canada qualified. But what about the rest of the Leafs?

This ties in nicely with a quote from Dreger (via Hope Smoke) last month saying that the Leafs likely have interest in him. But does this lead to anything?
