win it!

This is Peach. Well at least that’s just her nickname. No pony knows her real name. She’s in her mid 30s but is often referred to as an old lady. Her eyes are always closed.

She’s an elementary school teacher and loves kids and cats. She’s also very passionate about plants. (Her favorite color is blue.) But don’t be fooled by her sweet little face and petite figure. This ol’ gal is actually very deadly. And very VERY strong. If I were you, I’d stay on her good side.

Reblog if you want a chance to win her! :D

I’ve loved the Toronto Maple Leafs for my entire life and I didn’t think it was possible to love this team and this franchise more than I already did but this year has challenged that.

This entire season has been fantastic; it’s been historic and a fresh start, it’s been a century and it’s the start of another 100 years of Toronto hockey. It’s been facing old demons and creating new challenges and new ways to improve. It’s been kicking that haunting memory of a “4 to 1 lead” in the teeth and sweeping the Boston Bruins for the entire season. It’s been going from first out of the race to the post-season to last out of the first round.

It’s been Auston “40 goal scorer” Matthews scoring four goals in his rookie debut. It’s been Mitch Marner breaking a decades old assist record. It’s William Nylander breaking the rookie point streak record and Zach “shorty king” Hyman. It’s been Connor Brown hitting 20 goals and Nikita Zaitsev breaking the points record for a Russian rookie defenseman and Sosh and Josh and Kasperi stepping in to complete the fourth line when called upon.

This was the year Nazem Kadri hit 30 goals and Jake Gardiner and JVR and Tyler Bozak hit career highs. Morgan Reilly has never looked more ready to become the next Captain. Roman Polak has become a key part of our astonishing noteworthy PK unit. Leo Komarov will still gleefully chirp you in nearly half a dozen languages while stealing the puck out from under your nose. Matt Martin checked and cuddled his way into everyone’s heart, Connor Carrick was small but mighty and Brian Boyle stepped up to be large and in charge at the faceoff dot.

Goaltending in Toronto has been something of a cursed position but Freddie Anderson has more than broken that bit of bad luck. He left a secure back up position on a very good team to become our starting goaltender and it’s been amazing to feel reassured when you know that Freddie is in the net.

There are so many moments that will stand out in my memory when I think about this team and this year. Auston’s four goals, his thirty four goals, his forty goals. Mitch Marner’s first game against Boston. Living On A Prayer. Auston’s first game at home. The Centennial Classic against Detroit. Freddie’s first shutout. Mo hitting 100 points and Mitch’s much giffed celly. Suits and crying babies and Nikita Zaitsev’s first goal. St. Pat’s jerseys and watching William Nylander skate though center ice. Mac’s game against Florida to keep us in the race and his save on Sidney Crosby.

Connor Brown’s playoff clinching goal. Mitch Marner’s first playoff goal less than two minutes into the series. Kasperi Kapanen coming up big against Pittsburgh and again in 2OT.

The summer is going to bring change and probably some heartbreak, but right now, I can’t wait until October and we get to see more Maple Leafs hockey.
