TweetThe Toronto Maple Leafs clinched a playoff berth for the first time in nine years.
I sent congratulations to a friend of mine who's a Leafs fan, and he sent me a tweet he'd seen (don't know if it was from one of his friends):
THE MAPLE LEAFS ARE GOING TO THE THING WITH THE SEVEN GAMES AND BEARDS AND NO SHOOTOUTS WHATEVER THAT'S CALLED!!! (I'm out of practice.)
It's been a long time.
