This has been an awful season for us Leafs fans. It's certainly the least amount of Maple Leaf hockey I've watched since I was a youngin, and I've been rooting for losses most of this calendar year.
But last night, I enjoyed the in-game experience through my daughter's eyes. It was her first game, and she excitedly donned her Leafs jersey and took in the spectacle. We had a blast.
It helped that our Leafs played well, even scoring three goals, and our favourite goaltender James Reimer was spectacular earning the first star.
So yeah, this season sucked, but last night I remembered it's just a game and left feeling thoroughly entertained. My daughter will never forget it, and neither will I.
