APOLOGY MAPLE LEAFS

Oh Tanenbaum, Dear Tanenbaum, How Lousy is Your Sorry?

I was thinking of crisis management when I happened upon a letter of apology (if it can be called that) to fans of the Toronto Maple Leafs from Lawrence ("Larry") Tanenbaum, which comes across as being unintentionally funny. Here's a deconstruction of Larry's laughable letter.

Hey Leafs, Take That Sorry and go Puck Yourselves

Twice in his apology letter to Leaf's fans Larry Tanenbaum compliments the people paying the gate to see a very weak team, in the hottest hockey market, after missing the playoffs seven years in a row. It's like the minister handing around the hat during services, thanking the parishioners for their generosity, while rain drops drip through the broken church roof once again.
