What. The fuck.
We just finished getting our teeth kicked in by the team and now we’re painting one of the seven wonders of the fucking world in their uniform colors. Is that something, now?
Are we trying to blur the lines of pure sports hatred to make the world a kinder place because of the pandemic?
Hating the Montreal Canadiens isn’t just a right of passage for Leaf fans, it makes us better people. I hate the Habs so fucking much, I didn’t watch Sportscenter this morning because I didn’t want to see Tafolli’s game-winner in OT. It’s a negative visual I don’t want in my head. I stopped watching the news and writing about Trump for the exact same reasons. It’s all negative all the time and I don’t need the negativity of watching the Habs sweep the Jets KNOWING the Maples Leafs absolutely fucking blew it.
10 days ago the Maple Leafs had this team down 3-1 with a chance to ice it at home and now the Canadiens have their feet up as they heal for a week before they play again and we’re staring at CN Tower lit in Canadiens colors because we’re OK with it?
I will be actively cheering against the Habs on behalf of all Canadians who are disgusted by this soft act of support. I cherish my disgust for the Montreal Canadians, their fan base, and their organization. I love this country and would love to see the Stanley Cup back in Canada but not like this and not if it means I have to look across the street at North America’s biggest fucking Habs monument for the next three weeks.
