Alomar At MLG: A Fictional Tale
It's April 1993 and the Leafs are at Maple Leaf Gardens hosting the Detroit Red Wings in the Norris Division Semifinals. It's the Stanley Cup Playoffs and the entire city is on the Maple Leafs bandwagon.
Roberto Alomar, the best player on the 1992 World Series champion Blue Jays, is in attendance as the puck drops. The 16,000+ in attendance know the perennial all-star is there and the Hockey Night in Canada cameras find him and focus on him. Roberto Alomar is wearing a Detroit Red Wings cap and clearly rooting against the home town Leafs.
The above scenario never happened. If it had, this entire city would have freaked out. Alomar's face would be plastered on the front page of the Sun and we'd all be talking about how damn wrong it was for Robbie to wear a Red Wings cap to a Leafs home playoff game. Heck, we'd be burning his jersey in effigy and begging Gillick to ship his ass out of town. At the next Jays game, Roberto Alomar would be booed heavily, despite having led us to a World Series championship only months earlier.
If you haven't heard, LeBron James proudly wore a Yankees cap at the Indians game last night. In Jacob's Field, the star of the Cavs made it known he wants the home town ball team to lose. LeBron is either the world's biggest ass, brain dead or suicidal.
