It is starting to feel like 1992 again with so much anticipation for the Blue Jays season and the possibility so very real of the Maple Leafs advancing to the Stanley Cup playoffs.

And while there can be no turning back the clock, and circumstances are not exactly the same, there has not been this kind of buildup of baseball beginning and hockey playoffs around the corner in a very long time.
