Speaking of major league disappointment, I'm a passionate fan of a sports franchise that hasn't won a championship since 7 years before my birth. Every fall hope springs eternal and every spring I'm left feeling depressed and unsatisfied. I feel like Charlie Brown taking another run at the football Lucy is holding.
I don't have passion in the belly for soccer because I didn't play it as a kid and I only really see it once every four years. Conversely, I'm all about the Maple Leafs because I played the sport as a child and grew up watching the blue and white. I'm fully committed to the cause, it's too late for me, but that doesn't mean I can't have a little fun with my team.
The latest Toronto Maple Leafs slogan is "The Passion That Unites Us All". This is true, but glosses over the bitter fact of the matter. I've concocted some alternative slogans that are a little more honest. Vote for your favourite in the comments.
By the way, there is exactly 58 days, 7 hours, 58 minutes, and 54 seconds left until the puck drops. Go Leafs Go!
