|They're back and scrappin'.|
The place: Paupers, Bloor east of Bathurst, early evening, Monday night.
The story: While A.J. Burnett is cruising through the lower end of his first run-through the Yankees order on the TV over the bar, a fellow walks up and addresses the bartender. "Can you put the Leafs game on?"
The time: 7:48 p.m.
Postscript: The satellite dish at Paupers wasn't working so, no, there was no Leafs "action." But I've got 7:48 p.m. in the pool for first "Can you put the Leafs game on?" question of the season.
Beat that, kids.
