  Johnny Bower was the face of the best of the Maple Leafs I don't usually tear up when I write obituaries.We journalists can be a callous bunch, and we can make fun of anything. It's in our toolbox, I think, as a means to remain objective.But I teared up moments after I filed Johnny Bower's obituary.For one thing, he was just that guy. You loved him. Kids loved him, who never saw him play. Old farts who did see him play. Curmudgeons loved him.He was kind. He was generous with his time.He was the face of the best times of the Maple Leafs. Through good times and bad, Bower was a constant presence.I was a kid when Bower retired.
