Those two words say it all.
Phil Kessel and the Boston Bruins ended all the Maple Leafs fans hopes Tuesday night with a 6-2 romp of our beloved blue and white.
I was not even in attendance and could hear the collective sobs of 'Leaf's Nation'.
Did we think we had a realistic shot at post season play? No, not really. But we sure hoped the Toronto Maple Leafs could find a way in.
It's been 4 seasons, 286 straight games, including the lockout year, where playoff-starved Toronto Maple Leafs fans have not been able to see their boys play in the playoffs.
Four season's without a single glimmer of hope that we may actually hold a parade in June, welcoming Lord Stanley's Cup to Toronto, where all Leaf fans think it belongs.
Running the table the last 9 games is unheard of, unless you are the San Jose Sharks.
It was an impossible task that the Maple Leafs had to perform, but we all be-leafed in our boys.
No Mats Sundin, no Nik Antropov, no Carlo Colaiacovo, no problem...how ignorant of us.
Then again, we are Toronto Maple Leaf fans.
