#2090112 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by Barrie on 03 January 2011 - 07:19 PM

A friend of mine posted some Leafs jokes on my facebook, I'll share them here..

What's a common theme with the Toronto Raptors, Blue Jays, Argonauts, and Maple Leafs, aside from all being from Toronto?... None of them know how to play hockey.

What do you call 22 millionaires watching the playoffs?... The Maple Leafs.

Why doesn't Hamilton have and NHL team?... Then Toronto would want one too.

It's a sad fact that most people who witnessed the Leafs win their last cup were in diapers... It's a fun fact that the next time they win, those same people will be in diapers again.

Man goes into a bar with his dog to watch the Leafs game. Bartender says it's ok, so long as the dog doesn't cause any trouble... When the Leafs score their first goal, the dog leaps off the bar stool, does a backflip and dances around on its hind legs. The bartender says to the man, "Hey that's pretty sweet! What happens when they win a game?"... The man replies, "I dunno. I've had him for 3 years and we're yet to see it happen!"

What do the Leafs and the Titanic have in common?... The both look good until they hit the ice.

I was thinking today, and asked a few people I know...

I think another indication of a future of a franchise is how many prospects they have in the Jr. Championships (we have 5 :thumbup:). Does anyone know how many Leafs prospects are in the World Jr.'s? I haven't heard any reports on the FAN590 in Toronto about how a Leaf(s) prospect is doing. My guess it's zero.

#2089783 USA vs Canada (WORLD JUNIOR SHOWDOWN)

Posted by Barrie on 02 January 2011 - 10:42 PM

Canada couldn't handle the Swede's speed, and USA is even faster. Plus, we have Callahan on the USA team while Sheahan was cut by Canada.

I just want USA to win so I don't have to listen to smug "Hokey wis borne in da Cananada" people talk about how great their WJHC teams are.

Should be a good hard hitting game. Canada built their team specifically to beat USA.

Ah let them have it, a Canadian team hasn't had a Stanley Cup since 1993. It's their way to distract themselves on how disappointing the Canadian NHL teams have been for almost 20 years.

I have a theory that's reason why the tournament is so popular. If the Canadian teams were serious Stanley Cup contenders, this tournament wouldn't be as followed so closely in Canada.

US got the bye straight to the semi-finals, and Canada defeated the Swiss 4-1 in the quarterfinal to set up the match-up. The game is at 7:30 tomorrow on NHL Network or TSN (depending on location). Being from the US, I sure am pulling for the Americans but of course I realize Canada is the favorites. Hopefully the Canadians are worn out from the quarters and the US used that day off well. What do you guys think?

As someone who doesn't really care who wins, likes Canada and America equally, and sings both "Oh Canada" and "The Star Spangled Banner" at sporting events, I'm cheering for Mitch Callahan.

Lets Go Red Wings!

I've been away a few days, this was the first time I got a chance to watch Tatar's goal celebration. My question is, what's the big deal? I have no problem with it! It's the first goal of his career, he should be excited! Good for him, I hope it's the first of many!




#2085922 12/27 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Avalanche 3 (OT)

Posted by Barrie on 27 December 2010 - 11:52 PM

I'm waking up the neighbors if the Wings score here!

As promised, I yelled as loud as I could, just like it was a playoff goal.

You da man Ozzie. No one deserves #400 more than you do. Next stop the Hall of Fame!

Good night everyone! Going to have happy Ozzy dreams tonight! (..in a totally straight sorta way)

:lol:

It's ok man.

How balanced are we? 6 players with 10 or more goals, MOST in the NHL! I'll take that over a point streak. :P

Me too!

#2082072 I'm Boycotting the Winter Classic...

Posted by Barrie on 20 December 2010 - 05:34 PM

Still not watching either.

Actually I got tickets today for the March 21st game against Pittsburgh. I want to be a part of the crowd that night that'll be chanting "Crosby Sucks". I'll be wearing my Crosby Sucks t-shirt under my Holmstrom jersey too. When ordering tickets over the phone I told the sales guy about the shirt. He laughed and said, "That's awesome".

I should bring in the boxscore to a Ontario Arbys and get some weird looks from the employees...
