Nothing happened in hockey yesterday. There were four links total I could find for today's FTB. So I thought I'd point out some history to everyone who is all aflutter about the Flyers' comeback. It was incredible and impressive and I am thankful that I don't have to face a Bruins-Habs final (sorry CH) which would be the stuff of nightmares. But I feel everyone needs to be reminded that the 1942 Leafs were the first team to ever come back from 0-3 games in a series - and when they did it, it was to win the Cup.
As my divisional manager (a Flyers' fan) so kindly reminded me last week, the Leafs haven't done much of note in my lifetime (aside from 1993, 2002, Doug Gilmour, Mats Sundin, Wendel Clark, Felix Potvin, CuJo etc, apparently). I don't think it matters whether or not the glory years of my team were within my lifetime, though. I can be proud of the past accomplishments, and in that vein I am trying to increase my knowledge of the Leafs' history. Next up after I finish Barilko: Without a Trace will be the 1942 Stanley Cup winning team.

mf37 was actually there with the G&M photographer and just links to the article. Not much here, but I think it's cool that he's involved in the project.
