My 9 year old daughter Alicia and I went on our yearly pilgrimage to a Toronto Maple Leaf game on Saturday
Yes it was a bit of a drag the game didn’t mean anything in the standings to them, but then again I can’t remember going to one that did.
For us, as I’m sure it was for a lot in the A.C.C.this time of year, a chance to snag some tickets from season ticket holders that can’t be bothered anymore.
That being said it was full to see Buffalo, with a smattering of Sabre fans in the house, and what ended up being a great game with the Leafs ending their home losing streak.
It’s the small battles if you’re a Toronto fan!
We started the day off with a giant burger at the Real Sports bar right across the road from the A.C.C. and it is ‘everything’ you heard it was.
The biggest TV you will ever see surrounded by banks of others.
A DJ in the house has the place rockin’ before walking across to the game.
And strategically placed between the two, a kick arse Maple Leaf store that has everything in your size.
The bold print on your VISA receipt clearly points out, that after chowing down, you get a 15% discount!
It ain’t the cheapest night out but it is still one of the greatest spectacles on the planet!
And memories that are priceless!
I’m Scott Thompson.
