Name That Team
With the St. John's Maple Leafs moving to Toronto next season, they're holding a name the team contest. There are three names I'd be okay with and they're listed below in order of preference.
- St. Pats - I love the idea of bringing back this nickname. Prior to being called the Maple Leafs, Toronto's NHL franchise was known as the Toronto St. Patricks. With a cool retro jersey like this even I'd have to pick one up.
- Baby Leafs - This is how Leaf fans refer to the club anyways and I'm certain the players and coaching staff would have enough of a sense of humour to appreciate the joke. I don't believe this would ever happen, but the Toronto Baby Leafs is the second best route to take.
- Buds - Before a leaf can be, it must first be a bud. You can't argue with mother nature and you can't argue with this logic. The Toronto Buds is my third choice as the new name for the St. John's Maple Leafs.
Lets hope the Toronto St. Pats are back in town come this time next year. If I have any pull, it will be so. Of course, I have absolutely no pull whatsoever. How is that fair?
