The Friday Foto: Toronto's Maple Leafs

It's Friday, we have all put in a long week and there is no energy left to skim over, let alone delve into, a heavy hard-hitting blog. The Friday Foto is short, simple, sweet and generally light hearted in nature. Nothing that is too hard to handle, and something that will hopefully end your Friday with a smile.

Please enjoy today's Foto (I spell it with the F because I'm cool like that) featuring the Maple Leafs' Lee Stempniak.
(please read responsibly)

Toronto may not have put together the most skilled team for the 2009/2010 season (please guys, prove me wrong), but Cliff Fletcher and Brian Burke have exceeded at bringing in guys that fit well with the team mandate to always be giving to the community.

Blue and white draftees Luke Schenn, Nazem Kadri and Jesse Blacker quickly embraced the community by appearing at several Toronto charity events. Luke Schenn stepped above many of his draft year comrades and organized Luke's Troops, a fund that provides members of Canada's armed forces the opportunity to attend Leaf games with Schenn picking up the tab.

Lee Stempniak, Jamal Mayers and Matt Stajan have all taken hold of their commitment to the community by frequently spending time with the younger generation. They have extended themselves to children at Sick Kids Hospital, little tykes that visit the ACC with Easter Seals and all the rugrats found in the GTA. Truly an admirable undertaking.

Even one of the most recent heavy weight additions, Mike Komisarek, has developed quite the repoire with Torontonians after lending his support to the Pancreatic Cancer Canada team running in the "5K Your Way" benefiting the Princess Margaret Hospital. Komi shared the story of his mother's battle with cancer, made a considerable donation and met with the team after the run had concluded at Queen's Park.

The Leafs have yet to show that their locker room is filled with those that have what it takes to be leaders in the standings, but their ability to be leaders in the community is abundantly recognized.

Thanks MLSE, for employing fun guys, recruiting good guys, and for having one of the league's sickest logo's (I had to throw that in).

Talk to you all Sunday.

Your buddy,


  1. Don't forget Komisarek's Kids and camp Oochigeas.

  2. For sure the Leafs generally "care" more since Burke came in. Komi takes the cake, in my opinion. Even at the practice held recently, he gave away massive amounts of pucks before the team came on, and his very own stick, which I thought was pretty sick.

  3. obviously like your web-site but you have to
    take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding
    it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless I'll certainly come back again.
