A few thoughts to begin the week... TV rights, Jake Gardiner, effort, and more...

No. 1 - Leafs back in the win column… if you got to see it

As soon as CBC announced that Montreal and Boston was going to be the national game for this last week, I immediately looked for somebody to handle the game recap, and made my own plans for Saturday night. I live out in BC, so I wouldn't be able to get the game on TV with the benefit of a PVR system allowing me to rewind plays and double-check observations or whatever it is I do.

Hey guys, Cam has asked me to do the post-game tonight. And seeing as it’s well past midnight and I’ve just gotten back from Steve Dangle’s engagement party (congratulations Steve!), this is going to have to be short and sweet. If you're unhappy with the following recap, blame me, then blame Cam for trusting me with this in the first place.

This is a story about three young lads who go travelling to Amsterdam in search of optimistic adventure.

It ain't a story about looking cool - that's for sure. Read on at your own risk.
