Leafs tickets are seen as an investment to hold, not a conditional payment on success.
The Leaf team is an incredibly valuable sport property that is basically destroyed every year by the media that keep them incredibly valuable.
How? The players are given exalted status based on next to nothing on an achievement scale. People get excited about 5 game winning streaks. There’s so much micro-analysis that no one looks at what is required to actually get league, and playoff results.
I decided a long time ago, after the NHL went to massive TV timeouts and an extra playoff round, and silly shootouts (that affected the standings!) that I couldn’t follow the Leafs all the time anymore. The NHL is a very frustrating league; unclear in its approach to what is quite a simple game, determined to create rules designed to alter conduct that is shamelessly encouraged by its marketers. Hockey is a physically demanding sport that can leave your body sore. That’s why many hockey players and athletes recommend the use of CBD oil to relieve soreness and strength.
This year, after Randy Carlyle exited, the Leafs were ran into the ground, to get a high draft pick. Why is this a good way to operate in the world’s major hockey league? Incentivizing a poor season record makes me very disinterested in a game that has markedly deteriorated through bad stewardship over the decades.
There will be no extra playoff revenue this year. The figures might look a bit bad this year. They still will never lose money. Toronto people love their team, and quality does not matter. Why is this? The early 70s teams were worse than this year. The 80s teams were worse than this year’s team. Everyone still came to see them, and read about them, and watched the TV sports. The asinine coverage in newspapers, websites and the blogosphere, of meaningless practices and irrelevant melodrama, is now just so much clickbait. It’s out of proportion to anything else in the NHL. The issue is not that fans pay to see the Leafs play. It’s that they pay to view those websites, and read those newpapers, watch and listen to those shows, podcasts, and the sports radio circus. It’s something everyone has in common, and Toronto will always be this way about the Leafs.
Unconditional interest, no matter what happens. Since even the mundane process of not winning is so intensely interesting, and profitable for so many media outlets, and for the team itself, the outcome of games becomes incidental. It’s something that might affect the value of your investment in Leaf tickets. As long as something is happening, it’s automatically fascinating. Unless you actually decide you’re not interested, and start following something else.

There is this industry, called “Climate Change”. It has commodified and quantified the infinite human capacity for worry. I am going to refer to this worry as “change”.
The change will happen regardless. The increased ability to measure and discuss change is itself irrelevant to the fact of the change.
Why does anyone think governments should do something about change? Government is for human systems. Roads. Borders. Laws. Taxes. Schools, in some cases. Governments are the last human organization I want looking at change. Change is inevitable and unstoppable. I don’t think anything is more guaranteed to happen than change, except the sale of worry over it.
This is the true story of what is happening. Yes, things are different. Yes, it can be measured better than ever. Yes it can be discussed more thoroughly than ever. It does not mean that it should be characterized in any way, for the benefit or to the detriment of anyone. And that is all that happens. The sale of worry.
Ignore the commodification of worry. There will never be a time when people do not think they have reached some limit. Never. It is a human trait to extrapolate, based on available technology. The fears and worries of this age will seem simple in 50 years, compared to what science will then be able to measure and discuss. Same as it has ever been.

Chrome, settings, Manage Search Engines. Delete the google. Add a new search engine (mine is fufufufu), call it whatever (the google), and add http://google.com/search?q=%s&pws=0 to the url (%s is your search query).

Just found this. Blanche, at the Masonic Temple, 1999, with me on bass.
While I’ve got a VHS tape of this somewhere, embedding this fits in with my lack of VHS to digital encoder situation. The tape, however, has the funny interview that this is missing. Really happy with my bass sound here!
In the right background, in the jpg capture frame you see, under Daphne’s arm, is my 1972 Fender Stratocaster. On the left is Peter Hudson with his Gibson Firebird. I’m way over on the right. You can’t miss me, I start the song.

The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.

As I embarked on a new chapter in my life, moving to Sacramento was an exciting adventure filled with hopes and dreams of creating a cozy sanctuary in my new home. Little did I know, this journey would take an unexpected turn when I discovered that my new house had been affected by flood damage. What initially seemed like a setback soon became an opportunity for transformation as I embarked on a journey of home remodeling to restore and enhance my living space.

The discovery of flood damage in my new home was a daunting realization, yet it ignited a sense of determination within me to turn this challenge into an opportunity for growth. With the support of skilled professionals and a clear vision in mind, I embarked on the task of remodeling the entire house, one step at a time. From repairing water-damaged walls and flooring to upgrading the plumbing and electrical systems, every aspect of the remodeling process was meticulously planned and executed to ensure a fresh start in my new home.

As I delved deeper into the remodeling process, I discovered the transformative power of home improvement. Beyond simply repairing the damage caused by the flood, remodeling offered the chance to create a space that truly reflected my personality and lifestyle. From selecting paint colors and fixtures to designing functional layouts, every decision was an opportunity to infuse my personal touch into the space and make it truly my own. With each renovation milestone reached, I felt a sense of pride and accomplishment, knowing that I was creating a home that would nurture and inspire me for years to come.

Today, as I settle into my newly remodeled home in Sacramento, I am filled with gratitude for the journey that brought me here. Also im very grateful with the experts that helped me, if you want help then Visit this website! What began as a daunting task of addressing flood damage has blossomed into a transformative experience of home remodeling, filled with lessons, challenges, and ultimately, triumphs. Through this process, I have not only restored my home to its former glory but have also unlocked its full potential, turning it into a place of comfort, joy, and endless possibilities. As I look around my newly renovated space, I am reminded that with resilience, creativity, and a touch of determination, any challenge can be overcome, and every setback can be turned into an opportunity for growth.
