TORONTO, ON – Spencer J. McFurthy, managing partner at Wentworth, Tomothy & Vineyard LLP today took the undignified step of selling his second Aston Martin in order to purchase Maple Leafs playoff tickets.
McFurthy, who has been a loyal fan of the team for weeks, said that the game had started to get out of reach for normal people like him.
“When I started following the team, it wasn't like this," he said. "The owners of this team don’t seem to understand that not all of us are earning eight-figure salaries.”
“It's about time that they start looking out for the little people like me and my family.”
In addition to selling his car, McFurthy’s son Spencer Jr. will be forced to forfeit his private equestrian lessons for a week.
“He’ll no doubt fall behind his other classmates at UCC. Then when the other kids start bullying him because his horse's bascule is not up to Olympic standard, who pays for the child psychologist?”
Because he and his son will be forced to sit with the "peasants” in the gold section, McFurthy said they will be leaving their Salvatore Ferragamo shoes at home, for fear of being mugged by the bumpkins on the way to their seats.
