Cowabunga!! 👍 #tmnt
20 years ago this happened. I was 11 years old (oh god…I am so old) and it was my first year as a Leafs fan, my first playoff run.
After they lost game 7, I was CRUSHED. I was a little kid. It was my first real huge disappointment. I cried for HOURS. I just remember sitting on the ledge in the window in my room and hugging my cat and weeping.
Whenever things get tough, like this year, I always try and remember how as a kid, at that moment, I never doubted them. I never thought: “Why am I a Leafs fan? I’m only 1 year into this and it already hurts so much, I think I should move on and cheer for someone else”. Instead, I was already hoping for next year.
Anyways, the next day in school, we were in a computer lab and me and my friend typed on the screen “Gretzky is a dick” and accidentally printed it all over the lab and I got detention for that, lol.
Scrivens is actually perfect
