While driving on the 401 earlier today, in stop and go traffic (as is usually the case when crossing the top of Toronto on a long weekend), I spotted a single shinpad laying on the outside shoulder. I quickly asked my son, who was travelling with me, to snap a picture of it with his blackberry but he wasn’t that quick, so this will have to live on in fish-story form – true but unsubstantiated.
How does this happen? It’s like seeing a single shoe out there; not uncommon but weird. Did it fall out of a hockey bag from an open trunk? Not likely. Did it fall out of a bag strapped to a room? More likely. Domestic dispute?
