Am I A Leafs Jinx?


I should preface this entry by stating that I don't believe in jinxes.  I don't believe that anything I do can influence my team's play on the ice, despite the fact I used to send my 'vibes' to Maple Leaf Gardens in the early-to-mid 80s and I'm sure that may have helped the Leafs sweep Chicago in '86.

So I don't believe in jinxes or karma or any of that, so this entry is actually about coincidence.

Early in 2012, I went to Germany.  With the 6-hour time difference and lack of Leafs games on my hotel cable TV package, I didn't see a minute of Leafs action.  When I returned, the Leafs were on a 4-game win streak.

Since I've come back, I've watched 3 games.  We lost all three in regulation.


Am I a Leafs jinx?  Of course not.  I'm not the reason they haven't made the Stanley Cup finals in my lifetime.  It's just a coincidence, trust me.
