I drive a 12 year old Mazda. I thought I'd get that out of the way before this entry is interpreted as some sort of Ford Canada love-in.
Yes, I was Ford's guest tonight at the ACC to enjoy the Leafs vs. Capitals. Ford's been very good to me over the years and I sincerely enjoy working with the good folks there. And yes, I was able to order anything I wanted from the super expensive ACC menu and it all went on their tab. A $12 hot dog never tasted so good.
To recap, Ford gave me the amazing 3rd row seat and let me eat and drink anything I pleased, but I still drive a 12 year old Mazda. Are you reading this, Ford? Don't you think it's time to put Toronto Mike behind the wheel of a new Fusion or Focus or even a Fiesta? Think about it...
Tonight, we were officially eliminated from playoff contention, but I didn't care. I was witnessing first hand the wonder that is named James Reimer. He was spectacular, and we let him know how grateful we are. He alone makes this summer different than any summer since the lockout. I'm certain we'll be in the playoffs next season.
Thanks again, Ford, for thinking of me and letting me order $100 worth of grub. Here are a few pics I took from the 3rd row, right behind the Leafs penalty box.
