The Worst Team I Ever Played For


In 1985 I was a member of the CN Towers, a team that went 0-15 playing at Swansea's Rennie Park.  I just dug up this team photo.

Our coaches used to joke that we were watching too many Leafs games.  They too were at the bottom of the standings but at least they tasted victory now and then.  We were never in a game and rarely scored a goal the entire season.  I remember finishing the season with zero goals and two assists.

We sucked royally, but it was a lot of fun.  Three members of the team were in my class at school and every Monday morning we'd hang our heads low and sheepishly exchange glances of shame.
