The Last Time the Leafs Won the Cup

STORY BY: Ardy Reid
YEAR: 1967
LOCATION: Toronto, ON

Ardy was a flight attendant in 1967. On May 2, the Toronto Maple Leafs were in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup finals against the Montreal Canadiens, leading 3 games to 2 in the series. Throughout her flight, Ardy was kept informed of the score. Passing Maple Leaf Gardens on the subway ride home, she was joined by hoards of ecstatic fans, as the Leafs had apparently just won the Cup! Back then, the Leafs would often be in contention, but these days... well...not so much. Ardy's kids sometimes marvel at the fact that she was SO close to that fateful night in 1967 when the Leafs won the Cup, their last in almost 50 years! Thanks for sharing, Ardy.
