As I await my flight deep in Leafs country I can offer my own observations:
The Ottawa Senators suck
The Toronto Maple Leafs suck
For the fans, the differences end there.
Sens Army is angry
Leaf Nation is like an abused spouse
Sens Army is packing bags. The only question is who’s stuff is in it
Leafs army speaks in hushed apologetic tones about it getting better and keeping it together for the kids, Kadri and Schenn
Sens fans are threatening to sell the kids to the Gypsies, uh, Jackets
Leafs fans are checking Craigslist for bandwagon fallout tickets
Sens fans are all about a 12 step program. The first six steps are about UFA’s
Leafs fans still argue the parade route qualities of Bay vs Bloor
If the Sens rebuild there is great potential in five years
NEXT YEAR FOR THE CUP BABY!
Time for my flight. Have fun folks.
UPDATE: OMFG. Evidence for the prosecution!!! (click on image), although the insanity defence may apply:
