Happy holidays from the Toronto Maple Leafs of Christmas past, and their seasonally spirited owner, Harold Ballard. What else, really, can you say, faced with this image from the team’s 1987-88 Christmas card? A mention of Leafs’ mascot T.C. Puck might be in order, too, since he makes an appearance. The painting, by Joan Healey, is called “A Gift For The Giver.”
A very Merry Christmas, and a happy new year. Let’s hope it’s a good one, without any fear.
