When the Toronto Raptors took in on the chin yesterday against the Boston Celtics, it was their eighth loss in a row. Our beloved Maple Leafs themselves have lost three in a row. These are tough times in the big city.
Lets rewind back to my entry of December 7, 2003 / 20:34 EST, shall we? Here's an excerpt.
It's been a very long time since I've had to witness one of my teams on the losing end of a game. The Leafs have won eight in a row, the Raptors won their fourth in a row earlier today and the Bills won for the second week in a row.
It's easy to forget how high we were back in early December with both the Leafs and Raptors soaring. Today, we're in the doldrums experiencing the opposite end of the spectrum. During times like this I like to refer to the prophet of rage, Chuck D. "Cycles, cycles, life runs in cycles. New is old, no I'm not no psycho." - Public Enemy, Timebomb
Or perhaps an old favourite from the Five Stairsteps is just as apropriate. "Ooh, ooh, child, things are gonna get easier. Ooh, ooh, child, things'll get brighter."
