This sums up what it's like as a Leaf fan….
I’m posting this more as a fun topic, I am not “crying” or “whining” it was simply an email I received and thought it was “oh so true” and worthy of posting on this Maple Leafs board. But I’m sure many anti-Leaf fans will (as always) be on here ready to bash….kinda makes you wonder why they’re checking the “Leafs Rumor” Board though.
Hockey In Alberta:
Two boys are playing hockey on a frozen pond in Red Deer Alberta , when one of the boys is suddenly attacked by a crazed Rottweiler. Thinking quickly, the other boy takes his hockey stick,
shoves it under the dog’s collar, twists it, and breaks the dog’s neck, saving his friend.
A reporter is strolling by, sees the incident, and rushes over to interview the boy. “Young Flames Fan Saves Friend From Viscious Animal” he starts writing in his book.
“But I’m not a Flames Fan” the little hero replies. “Sorry, but as we are in Alberta, I just assumed you were” says the reporter and he starts writing again.
“Oilers Fan Rescues Friend From Horrific Attack” he writes in his notebook.
“I’m not an Oilers fan either” the little boy says “Oh, I assumed that everyone in Alberta was either for the Flames or the Oilers. What team do you root for?” the reporter asks.
“I am a Maple Leafs fan” the boy replies. The reporter starts a new page in his notebook and writes:
“Little Bastard from Ontario Kills Beloved Family Pet”
