    For me, every year for our first game, I barbecue steaks and have an ice cold beer.

    What do you guys do?


    Go Leafs Go, now and forever.

    Put on my tight fitting 1985 Wendel Clark home white replica jersey and Mike Foligno dome helmet. Blast the HNIC theme song on repeat, grab my titan TPS2020 stick and stick handle a tennis ball throughout the house, blasting it at unsuspecting family members until puck drop.

    My first game of the season too, in a 45+ league. And for the first time in 17 years, I won't have my son in net behind me, as he's on a different team.

    Luckily, I have the 6:30 game, so I'll be in the bar by 8:00, to catch the second and third periods.

    Going to the game - my 10th straight Leafs home opener.

    I've been going to Leafs home openers for a decade. Geez, that's.... wow.

    Very fortunate, no doubt. Try and take someone new with me every year - tickets through work

    Pinching some WiFi from a logging camp at the moment.
    No games for me for a bit.

    I will be looking to clip a black bear and moose tag in the next 10 days for someone I haven't met yet. Home to NZ on the 14th won't see a full game till then.
    Still. I had 4 months in this beautiful country. 2nd only to NZ of course:sarcasm:

    It's a lunchtime start over here and the weather is going to be fine and about 20°

    I'm going to sit down with a cold beer, get the iPad out and have a few snacks on hand whilst i make a day of it

    Can't wait

    I put up the Christmas tree and sleep under it the night before.

    Then on game day I wear my leafs pajamas from when I was six (yes they are a little tight now) and parade around the house slowly eating my bowl of carrots until the puck drops.

    After the first period, I'm tired from the long day so I go to bed and then check the score the next morning in the newspaper.

    Look forward to it every year.
