I do not understand sports fans. . .not that that is a bad thing who really wants to understand them? However, I do have a question that needs every Leaf and Habs fans attention. Lets face you have nothing else to do until the next season so read on. Why support a team in a city light years away from where your live when there is a perfectly good team in your home town?
I am thinking of Toronto/Montreal and Ottawa here. So many people in this fable city support the Maple Leafs or the Habs and I think its weird because there is no reason for it.
Ok fine for the longest time Ottawa did not have a team so logic would decree that locals should lend their foam fingers to either Montreal or Toronto. But Ottawa does have a team now and has done for more than a few weeks now; so why continue to support out of towners?
Clearly Ottawa is the better team as they, at least, have been to a Stanley Cup final in living memory. . .and despite incredible bad luck on the injuries list are still running in the current play offs. So give me a good reason and I will shut up.
Take note though supporting outside teams because that is what you have always done is not good enough. Most of you are not so old that you are too entrenched in blind religious tradition that you would rather vote tory than change. No, a solid real supportable reason is all I can accept. Failure to comply with my demands will result in detentions and a burning of the blue flag on your front lawn.
Time to talk guys are these out of towners like your old security blankets and you cant let go? Or you are to Old in the tooth to change?
