Friday Folly: Leaf Fans

The Leaf's crest from last time they won the cup. Most of you will remember it in black and white.

I love when the Leafs show a tiny amount of success and their fans get all puffed up and start to celebrate and trash talk other teams. It makes the season-ending shoe-gazing and deathly silence so much more fun.

You would think that the fans would learn to be a bit more cautious — that they’d learn to look before they leap. Heck, perhaps after all this time, they’d be wary of leaping at all.

Alas, 7 years out of the playoffs and 44 since the last Cup have taught them nothing.

Trash on, dear Leaf fans. The rest of us enjoy the entertainment.
