Toronto Maple Leafs Doughnuts

Toronto Maple Leafs fans in the Toronto-area can now show their support by scarfing down Toronto Maple Leaf themed doughnuts!!

The doughnuts are available at 320 Tim Horton’s locations around the Toronto-area.  The doughnuts are vanilla-dipped and covered in blue and white sprinkles whenever the Leafs play a home game.

I’m not sure how doughnuts are going to help the Toronto Maple Leafs win any games but I guess it’s worth a try right?  How much more badly could they play?

I want to get my hands on one of those doughnuts, but that won’t be happening anytime soon since I live in Vancouver.  I guess I’ll just have to go buy a vanilla-dipped donut and put my own blue and white sprinkles on it. Mmmm doughnuts.  I wonder what Homer Simpson would think of these doughnuts?

Toronto Maple Leafs VS Vancouver Canucks 2010

So I attended the Toronto Maple Leafs game on Saturday, December 18th in Vancouver with my best friend.  The Leafs were playing against the Vancouver Canucks (obviously.)  I proudly wore my Beauchemin #22 jersey to the Sharks Club before and to the game.  I cheered my heart out, and voice (I lost my voice) for the Leafs, but they ended up loosing  4 to 1.

It is an amazing experience to go to a Toronto Maple Leafs game in Vancouver because the stadium is packed and the fans are even for both teams, if not more for Toronto.  The Vancouver Canucks fan are really mean to Leafs fans, they really hate Toronto.  I’m not sure why, never will, but that’s the first thing I learned when I moved to Vancouver.  I wish the Leafs came to Vancouver more often, but its only every few years since they switched the schedule a few years back.

I would pay any price I have to in order to get to a Leafs game in Vancouver.  This time my ticket only cost me $189 and I was 25 rows behind the net.  Last time I went in 2008 (that’s the last time the Leafs were in Vancouver) I paid $200 for the very last row in the arena.  I lucked out this year because I got in on the presale and I didn’t have to buy from someone on Craigslist.

I got a free Leafs hat from the fan beside me because he gave up on the Leafs.  I would NEVER do that. haha.  Even though the Leafs lost the game I still walked out of the arena with Beauchemin #22 on my back proud to be a fan! GO LEAFS GO!

By the way, I have the Beauchemin jersey just because we have the same last name and my brother plays in the Junior B, and they both wear #22.  He is not my necessarily favorite player hehe.

Vancouver Canuck Rick Rypien Shoves Fan

Vancouver Canuck’s Rick Rypien has been suspended indefinitely pending a hearing with the League.  During last nights game VS. the Minnesota Wild he shoved a fan.  You can see the video of on youtube

Rick Rypien was given a double minor for roughing and a 10 minute misconduct in the second period.  While he was heading down the tunnel to the dressing room he pushed a Minnesota Wild fan that was applauding.  The fan has been identified as James Engquist.  The Vancouver Canucks went on to have a big loss, losing 6 to 2 to the Minnesota Wild.

This isn’t the first time a player has attacked a fan.  I can visually remember the time Toronto Maple Leaf forward Tie Domi sprayed water onto a Philadelphia Flyers fan.  And then the fan started pounding the glass and fell into the penalty box and had a fight with Tie Domi.

We will have to wait and see what happens to Rick Rypien.  Until then, the Canucks will have to play without him!

Toronto Maple Leafs 4-0

Need I say more?  The Toronto Maple Leafs are in first place, yes first place in their conference, actually in the whole NHL!

They have played 4 games so far this season and won all 4! This is the first time in 17 years that this has happened for the Maple Leafs.  They have scored twice as many goals as they have allowed and their penalty killing is at 90%.  Who knew they could rise to the top?  I knew!  They are a changed team!  I wonder if they can do 5 wins in a row.  But I’ll have to wait till Monday, October 18th when they play against the New York Islanders.  I see a Stanley Cup coming!

NHL Hockey Game Leafs VS. Canucks

Good news!

I have successfully purchased two tickets to the Toronto Maple Leafs VS. the Vancouver Canucks for September 18, 2010.

I had to pay $190 per ticket, and it was all worth it.  I am in row 25 behind the net! Wahoo!

Now the waiting game begins.  I better pull out my Leafs jersey and make sure it still fits.  I think I will purchase a new Toronto Maple Leaf jersey for this game.  There is a player on the Leafs, Francois Beauchemin.  I am going to buy his jersey seeing as we have the same last name.

If you have never been to a Toronto Maple Leafs game in Vancouver then I suggest you go!  It is very intense and exciting.  You will meet crazy hardcore fans.  I usually get a lot of haters when I go, but also a lot of people cheering with me.  It is a lot of fun, but the tickets to that game are always very expensive.

Well maybe I will see some of you at the game! Or at some other games this season!
