First DGB showed up twitter, which quickly became an indispensable part of the overall site experience. Then, DGB showed up on facebook, which... didn't.
Well, two out of three isn't bad. So now it's time to take over youtube.
Yes, after months of procrastination I've finally figured out how to upload some of my old VHS Leafs highlights. And you can subscribe to my updates by visiting my channel and clicking the big yellow "subscribe" button in the top corner.
Here's a few that I've posted so far...
Wendel Clark's return
I've written about this game before, but as best I know it's never been available online before. Enjoy.
Wendel's hat trick goal against the Kings
I've written about this one too, and how much it meant to Clark and the Leafs.
So let's take a moment to admire the icy cool of Felix Potvin, stopping a partial break and then playing the puck ahead in the dying seconds. I also like the way Potvin ignores two Leafs that are closer to him and sends his pass right to Gilmour. Good thinking, Felix.
Glenn Anderson's OT goal against the Kings
This is game five of the series. Nice effort on the backcheck, Gretzky. But hey, Glenn Anderson was awesome! He'll be a hero in Toronto forever!
Glenn Anderson's penalty
Glenn Anderson was an idiot!
General Borschevsky has already covered this, so let me just say this: seeing Kerry Fraser make this call still makes me angry to this day. I still get cranky when I see a Target logo.
The High Stick
"I was screened on the play. The replays clearly show that." - Kerry Fraser.
Yes, I guess that's the sort of thing you can say a few years later, when you assume nobody will ever see the replay again and notice how the players part like the red sea to give you a clear view of a play you're looking directly at.
I'm going to go pour draino into my eyes.
Leafs/Kings game seven CBC intro
A confession: I love musical montage intros to sporting event. I will post any that I can find. I don't care if nobody watches them.
"Go Leafs Go"
This is a Global TV pre-game song intended, one would assume, to get fans fired up. Between this and "The Leafs Are The Best", I'm really starting to question the mid-90s.
Remember: I'll post clips on the blog from time to time, but if you want to know as soon as anything goes up be sure to subscribe.
