• Well, I’m sorry that you got that experience in New York. Before I went to NY, (or Toronto for that matter), I had this irrational fear that there was a mugger or con down every dark alley. Your story confirms it.
    When I was there to see Times Square and visit an internet pal there, I got encouraged to get my picture sketched from this seemingly kindly Asian man with his easel on the sidewalk. Once he was done with the sketch, it was then a haggle to include a cardboard backing and frame. I’m not paying an additional 30 bucks just for a piece of cardboard.
    This was a really fun episode to listen to. I’ll have to keep it in mind next time you want suggestions for a “best of”.

  • This photo is an all-time low in the 2014-2015 Leafs season. Worse than the 9-2 Nashville game, the 6-2 Sabres game, 11 game losing streak, 4-1 loss to the Oilers… Never make a bet favouring the Leafs to do anything resembling success/winning ever again unless it’s guaranteeing they miss the playoffs/pick top 10 again. I’m barfing inside.
