Spectacular "#BrianBurkeDrunkEmails"

If any of you follow Leafs’ GM Brian Burke on Twitter (and if you don’t, you should @LeafsBB20), you’re aware that he hosted a Q&A session via his Twitter account recently. During that session, he was asked the following question from a Jets fan who has apparently not watched Jonas Gustavsson play since the new year. “Now that you know how horrendous your goaltending is, what are you going to do to address it?” Burke’s response – “Figures, a Jets fan asks this question. Not sure what you are watching. I, too, have sent emails when I was hammered!” - triggered a hashtag that was trending on Twitter by night’s end: #BrianBurkeDrunkEmails. Here’s my favorites from the bevy of tweets that it inspired.
