True story: Before there was a Dufferin Mall, the land was occupied by track for racing horses. One night, the stables caught fire and a young jockey, Dan O'Malley, tried to get the horses out of the stables but the frightened horses ran into the fire instead. Dan O'Malley's foot was snagged in a stirrup and he was dragged into the flames as well where we was burned alive with the horsies.
To this day, some nights if you walk past the mall, you can see the ghost of young Dan O'Malley being dragged from the Body Shop to his doom, just over by the McDonalds in the food court. Oooooh, are ya scared?
DUFFX2: Saturday, 1:30 pm, meet at the Second Cup
