Right off the bat, we have to apologize for the rough sound quality... it seems the Gods of Technology were not with us when we recorded this. Trying to clean this up even a little bit was enough to drive anyone nuts. Ironic then, that one of our number 8 jerseys had the nickname "Mental Case". It was probably pretty deserved, as you'll hear. Obviously, there's a lot of love for Barclay Plager as well. Then we cover the three games, where 4 out of 6 possible points is probably better than the team deserved -but we'll take them nonetheless. And finally, there's the recent goal-scoring panic, and the resulting ideas that have come out about that. All told, quite a bit of craziness.

Give it a listen, eh?

Here's a LINK for a good breakdown of the Toronto jersey/nameplate story. It's a fun read.

Thanks for sticking with us, even through crummy internet service and robo-voices. Just part of the charm of on-the-cheap podcasting, I suppose.
