That's an interesting story for sure.... I don't know how old you are, but I visited the first Timmy's in Hamilton maybe a year after it opened, and I remember well the night Tim crashed his DeTomazo down Niagara way and died. Anyway you're 40 minutes away if you want to bring a coupla Timmy's with you, just cream thanks. I had one of those black cherry beasts once too.

I remember the day he died very well. I was 12 years old. My namesake and hero died. I had met him a few times as a child. In fact, I own one of his game sticks when he was a Leaf. I assume the Black Cherry beast you owned was a Pantera also. I will grab a Timmies for you when I am down your way this summer.
Cheers.

Welcome! This is one of the coolest and most Canadian stories I've ever heard.

(Btw, I'm a Canadian-American.)
