Happy New Year to the Toronto Maple Leafs

"Midnight came and went—2011 with it — as the Maple Leafs were some 35,000 feet in the air, winging home by charter after a glum New Year’s Eve in the ’Peg, 15 years since they last passed this way. Pity they couldn’t stay away longer." - By Rosie DiManno. Toronto Star columnist and apparently also a BITTER LOSER.
Winnipeg Jets won tonight. FAR TOO MANY Leafs jerseys in the stands at the MTS Centre. Shame on season ticket holders who enabled their pathetic and life destroying addiction to smoking buds.

Toronto message boards and news articles are mostly blaming the refs, ignoring the fact that they should be blaming the fact that these are the Toronto Maple Leafs after all.

If you're a Leafs fan born in Ontario, then feel free to continue your association with futility, but if you were born in Winnipeg and CHOOSE to be a leafs fan, I pity you.

I never understood why any self respecting Winnipegger would follow the Leafs. Most of the people in Manitoba I talked to that happen to be Leaf fans were mainly transplants from the East, especially the Maritimes.
