The Toronto Maple Leafs dropped a 2-1 overtime game to the New York Islanders on Monday night, which means of course, the Leafs’ season is now over and very soon will be dwelling in the basement where they’re much more at home and comfortable.
It was a good run, though. Four straight.
And in honour of those boys in blue giving it a real shot this year and being good almost through most of October, I’d like to present a little song, sent to me from Blue Bayou in England. It’s the lovely Emmylou Harris with a little help from Elvis Costello, singing “I Still Miss Someone,” with the opening line a terribly depressing thing to hear for Leafs fans.
Emmylou, Elvis, and Blue Bayou sure are insensitive.
