Ever feel like you’ve started on the wrong foot? Maybe the project didn’t get off to a good start or the date started with you falling down a flight of stairs . . .
I hear these things, um, happen….
Can you get the win after a rough start?
On October 26th, 2009, the Toronto Maple Leafs got their first win of the season . . .
Just how bad was this losing streak?
Well, now they’ve tripled points, they’re up to 3! Mind you the division leaders sit with 18 points. Not an easy gap to close.
Who knew Haggie could step into a leadership role. We traded him a couple of yeas ago. Looks like it suits him well.
As for Anaheim, well, they’re in the worst way. If they weren’t Pacific Division rivals I might feel sorry for them. Look at Scott, how old is he now? He looks like a cowboy who has been left on the prairie too long. Get that man some moisturizer!
Sports Stat of the Week: Best comeback from a lousy Season to win it all . . .
NHL: 89-90 Oilers started season 2-11-2, but went on to win the Cup
NFL: 1979 LA Rams had the worst record with 9-7, but won the Superbowl
MLB: 2006 Cardinals worst regular season (83-78), but won the World Series
The 2006 Cards do indeed hold the record for worst regular season, but they got off to a great start so it’s not quite what I was looking for . . .
You baseball wonks keep dogging me about baseball stats. Let’s face it, I’m no baseball nut. If you can provide a worse start for a MLB team that then goes on to WIN the world series, I will gladly update this item.
As for the leafs, let’s just plan to keep the win streak short. The Leafs blow through town Wednesday night. Go Stars.
