Always Hoping

This float from the Santa Claus Parade is a tribute to our beloved hockey team, the Toronto Maple Leafs who haven't won the Stanley Cup since 1967 but we keep hoping that this is the year. The float shows the old Maple Leaf Gardens on Carlton St, the mascot  Carlton the Bear, and the wonderful Johnny Bower who was playing goal for us when we last won and is now 93 years old!

I know how you feel, my NFL team The Carolina Panthers haven't' won a superbowl yet but they've come close. Hopefully before I die.

Our St. Louis Blues have never won the Stanley Cup. At least you have 13 wins.

A wonderful float for the hockey team. There is always next year in case you don't win this year. :)

It needs Rocket Richard on it too, scoring on the Toronto net. :)

Since 1967? Wow. I must not have been paying attention. I still think of Toronto as one of the good teams. (I really only pay attention to "my" teams, the Boston Bruins and the Columbus Blue Jackets.)

Just catching up on the floats. They really are nice!

Waiting so long for a championship will just make it sweeter when the cup finally comes your way. In the meantime, stay warm!
