Just tossing this out there before the Sabres and Leafs get at it tonight. The thought occurred as my wife, my sister, and I were strolling through the mall today (which was perfectly fine – I didn’t see an AK-47 anywhere.) My sister was wearing her store fresh Jordan Leopold third jersey when a small Canadian made the case that his favorite hockey team was better than my sister’s hockey team. He rooted for the Leafs.
The common perception is that the Leafs aren’t really any good, and my sister promptly reminded him of this to no avail. I promptly reminded her of the standings and that we were in a poor position to argue.
I guess my question is: how terrible is the team we all root for? We are on the other end of Thanksgiving, so we should all have some sort of opinion.
Leave your thoughts in the comment section. Enjoy the game tonight.
