Toronto Mike in Press Row for Leafs vs. Sens

leafsFor the past couple of years, I've had media passes for Toronto Marlies games. This gets me in the door, gives me access to the press box and all the goodies in there, and let's me sit in whatever seat is empty. As much as I enjoy Marlies games, I've always dreamt of parlaying my AHL media credentials into a similar deal with the NHL's Toronto Maple Leafs, a team I've loved for as long as I can remember. It looks like I'm getting my wish...

I've been called up to the big leagues! On Monday, December 14th, with the hateful Ottawa Senators in town, I'll be watching the game from Press Row at the ACC. That's right, Toronto Mike will be in the press box, tweeting and blogging all the action.

A big thanks to MLSE for setting this up. I was actually offered a spot in the press box this coming Monday, but my son's got a big game of his own and I couldn't let him down. The game against the Sens should be better, anyway.

Now this should be cool.

Eat all the ice cream and popcorn you possibly can!!!

It went downhill when they switched from Hagen Daas... but, hey, free ice cream is free ice cream!

The best media meal in the NHL is at the RBC Centre in North Carolina. They do a full hog each game and our tv trucks are parked right where the exhaust is so all you smell all day long is smoking pig flesh... you're starving by meal time :)
