For 40 years Leafs fans have waited for their own parade and only have come close, maybe once, in all that time. It is impossible to remember Gilmour without remembering 1993. He scored 127 points in the regular season, another 35 through three playoff rounds, and came up a game short of advancing to the Stanley Cup final. He had already won a Cup in Calgary in 1989, but this was Toronto. "My team," he calls it. "If someone were to tell you, you could play Game 7 at home and all you had to do was win it to get to the Stanley Cup final, wouldn't you take that?" Gilmour said. "I would. We had it and then Wayne Gretzky played one of the greatest games of his life and took it away from us." But there still is that part of Gilmour, ever the competitor, who holds on to the notion the Leafs were ever so slightly robbed. In Game 6, the bane of every Leafs fans' existence, Gilmour face to face with Gretzky atop the faceoff circle, was cut as Gretzky's follow through of his stick went into Gilmour's forehead. Gilmour clearly was cut and bleeding: The expression on Gretzky's face was that of fear. "Should have been five and a game misconduct," Gilmour said. "But Kerry Fraser didn't see it. I've always understood that. What I didn't understand was the linesmen. They had the ability to make the call. They had to have seen it, even if Fraser didn't? That's the only regret I have of that call. Somebody else should have said something -- and if that happens, who knows what's next?"

Being a statistically minded baseball fan and a lover of trouncing idiocy in others, FJM was my favorite site to read. I really and truly have never laughed as hard as I did at their witty and intelligent barbs aimed at the idiocy that permeates the majority of baseball analysis. It's a shame to see them go, but I want to enshrine their last bit of brilliance with a quote: "For now, we will leave the site and the archives up as a testament to the fact that if you work hard enough, and blow off enough social occasions, and stare at the internet enough, and get nerdy enough, and repeatedly ignore entreaties from your friends and loved ones to please God stop blogging about Bill Plaschke and get out of the house it's a beautiful day!, then you, too, can...have a blog." -- It's so true: just ask the five closest people to me in my life.
