Slow Sports Days in Toronto


Withdrawal symptoms... it is always the same, regardless of the addiction.

With the National Hockey season seemingly scrubed due to a labor dispute, Global Toronto News is simulating the Maple Leafs season, for the newspaper.
It appears that what the paper and website have done, is take the video game NHL 2013, and plays the season, game for game.  
Complete with highlights, scoring leaders, and action photos.

**No word is given in the article, whether fights broke out in the "game".
/shakes head/

From the Global, Toronto at Philadelphia: 

The Philadelphia Flyers hammered the Leafs early and often on Saturday building a 3-0 lead in the first period en route to a convincing 5-2 victory. 
Former Flyer James Van Riemsdyk scored in his first game against his former team while another former Flyer, Joffrey Lupul, had the other Toronto goal. 

Dion Phaneuf, still without a point this season, and Carl Gunnarsson were both minus 3. After the game, the Leafs sent Matt Frattin down to the Toronto Marlies and called up defenceman Korbinian Holzer. 
Toronto returns to the ACC on Tuesday as they play host to the Anaheim Ducks. 

RECORD - 2-2-2, T12th in east   (That's fair, at least)

Maple Leaf Scoring Leaders
Phil Kessel 4-1-5 
Joffrey Lupul 3-1-4 
James Van Riemsdyk 2-2-4 
Clarke MacArthur 1-2-3 

Next game - Tuesday vs. Anaheim

/shakes head/

Isn't this just some sports reporter, with a ton of time on his hands, playing a video game in his den, then reporting it as 'sports news'?  Is that not the truth here?

Aren't the mainstream media doing essentially the same thing here in the States, but with a presidential election?

They sure are, but not just with the presidential election. Look at what they are doing with the Benghazi attack.
