Non-Hockey Chatter / Re: Coronavirus

I don't like posting things like this but the response to Covid this year seems to be "Let's hide under a pile of coats and hope it goes away".

I really think that the way they opened it up shot any chance of protection in the foot. They've made it almost impossible to go back to a lockdown or for that matter, masks.

My wife is currently going through a battle that can be attributed to her being infected with Covid in January coupled with the stress of running a JK to Grade 12 school through this sh*tshow. She was a healthy, active woman in her mid 40's working her way towards her half marathon that now has a hard time walking up a flight of stairs.

The lack of concern for other's health is demoralizing and kind of solidifies my lack of belief in humanity.

OTH so sorry to hear this. I hope your wife gets better soon. My hubby had it at Christmas and still has a lingering cough & shortness of breath when he tries to work out. It’s frustrating.

That was a brutal play by Holl on that goal to set up the 2 on 0.

Whoa whoa whoa. You think you can just sneak in here like that!

It's been a while, man. Hope you're well!

A while?  You were here in the era of Code, Juicer, cw, etc.

It's interesting seeing the varying degrees of mask wearing.

Was curious about the kids' school and how many kids and teachers were still wearing a mask.  They said that literally only a handful of kids were not wearing a mask at this point.  All teachers were.  I just saw one secretary who wasn't.  Talked to a few friends about their kids' schools, and they said it's roughly 50/50. 

Went to Costco last week, and I'd say the split was 60/40 in favour of those wearing masks.  The other grocery stores I've been to as well as the hockey arena and soccer field the kids play in I'd say it's closer to 70/30 of those who don't.

My kids said to me almost every teacher stopped wearing a mask and kids was about 50/50.

My daughter said last week, that by the second day, only herself and two others were wearing a mask. She said teachers are about 50/50. My wife who is a principal at another school has asked her staff to consider continuing to wear their masks to support the students that have chosen to keep theirs on. She said that all but one teacher have kept their masks on. It's funny how leadership can effect an organization.

So true. My sons school the principal & head secretary not wearing masks. Thank goodness his class of grade 8s only 2 kids not wearing masks. Everyone else including teacher all wearing.

For the most part, the majority of places I’ve gone too the majority of people are wearing masks. The hockey rinks are another story. 😔 like 70% not wearing masks. My son continues to wear his & hockey Canada did send out an email that masks are to be worn inside dressing rooms & on the benches by coaching staff. Most are doing it.

Anyways, I have no desire to stop wearing mine & will continue to do so for quite some time.

Stay safe everyone.

For me, this is the most humiliating playoff loss I have experienced as a Leafs fan. Boston was brutal and yes, disappointing. But losing this series when up 3-1 against a team that was so far behind in the standings, and the Habs to boot (the team I have always disliked the most), well, that takes the cake for me. I feel completely frustrated and dejected at the same time.

I don't know what else to say.

Derek my sentiments exactly.

I genuinely don't think I've ever been this dejected as a Leafs fan.

Yep me too

  :oMy heart can’t handle this

Another year, another meltdown. Sigh.

Yeah, and this time it's against a team that apparently was epically horrible, which is even better.

I know. And over half of my family are Habs fans. Makes it so much more fun.

Another year, another meltdown. Sigh.


Yup!! Sorry I thought it was Nylander but I was only listening to Cuthbert

I thought it was Gally but then saw the reply with Muzzin’s tip


Team never makes things easy. I stopped watching after one. Hate the Habs so much can't bear to watch them this whole series. Watched maybe 2 periods in total but the 2 big stars need to get their heads out of their asses.

I’ve been watching for the most part but I just had a feeling tonight. And yes, the those 2 need to do something. Anything.

 :(I had a bad feeling about this game. Sigh

It’s nice to win a game 4. 1 more boys too complete step 1.
