Mom and I were in Toronto visiting relatives. I was 12. We had no tickets to the Leafs game but someone knew someone that worked at Maple Leaf Gardens. They brought us in the back door used to access the zamboni bay and took us through a bunch of tunnels and stairwells to find and usher, who then proceeded to find us season ticket seats that they knew were going unclaimed for the evening.
It was a crappy game (vs Rangers) with no star power and I've always hated the Leafs. But man, that place was awesome.
Was never there for a game (did see a few games at the ACC)...The old MLG reminded me of a cathedral...A special place.
