I've been a fan since I could crawl. I lived through Allan Bester's fivehole. I saw grown men cry when Gretzky scored a hat-trick in THAT game 7. I drove 160km/hr to get to a Yonge Street parade. I remained a Leafs fan even though Ottawa got a team. I spent an entire paycheque to see Game 3 against the Canes in 2002. I'll make it through these bad times and it'll make the successes that much sweeter.

Phil Kessel Owns Rosie DiManno

21

Here is the Phil Kessel interview that changed the landscape of the Toronto media. They were able to ask their thoughtful questions and were given insightful answers. Just kidding. Rosie DiManno demonstrated just how remarkably thin-skinned she is with her little hissy fit over Kessel pointing out that it's not his first game in Boston.
