We’re going Steve Thomas crazy tomorrow at noon, and on till 1:30 or so, at this here JABS blog, the traffic light at the corner of sports and obsession.
It’s the Stumpython, and it works like this. You tell us, in 50 words or less, why dynamo Steve Thomas just has to make the Leafs squad this season. Or why the 42-year-old is yesterday’s news and should be left off.
Or perhaps you have a favourite Stumpy moment to relate, your personal highlight package of memories. Say you met him in a restaurant once – tell us the story. Recall Stumpy's entree, if you like.
We’ll pick the best ones, keeping the hot cyberstove boiling, and we’ll have Stumpy-related trivia to throw at you to keep that Stumpy fever at bay with another dose of preseason hockey tomorrow night.
Stumpython – tell your friends it's not quite the Leafs Lunch (we prefer to call it the dog’s breakfast). Tell them to be there. Actually, be here.
And here's a couple of snippets to go with your lunchtime crumpets:
