Could it be the ghost of the cantankerous blowhard Harold Ballard, once voted to Beaver magazine’s “10 Worst Canadians,” that’s causing the Leafs their latest grief? After all, it was 35 years ago today that the fat-headed mogul that presided over the club from 1971-1990 was sentenced to three years in jail on a thousand fraud charges. Nah, he has nothing to do with it—they just suck. Again. I reckoned that if recalling Jiri Tlusty and Staffan Kronwall worked Ballard would roll over in his grave. After last night’s two marks for Tlusty I can hear Ballard’s fat, bony ass spinning in his coffin from here.
