Try It For A Week, Change Your Life: The Barilkosphere Challenge

LeafsThis afternoon, I interviewed Habs blogger The Active Stick for a job. At some point during our conversation, we compared the Barilkosphere to the Habs blogosphere.

The first thing you need to know about the comparison is that we're united under the awesome handle "Barilkosphere" while they're divided under the cumbersome name "Habs Blogosphere". As we talked, The Active Stick seemed envious, as if she really wanted to be a part of our club. That's when I challenged her...

"Try rooting for the Leafs for one week and I promise you'll never look back."

It's true, we haven't played in a Stanley Cup final during my lifetime, but cheering for the Leafs is good for the soul, spiritually fulfilling and a whole lot of fun. The Barilkosphere is smarter, funnier and better looking as a whole than online fans of any other team, especially the Montreal Canadiens. A Habs fan would be unable to hate our Leafs after spending a week in our shoes. They'd never look back.

Are there any fans of other teams willing to take The Barilkosphere Challenge? Give us a week and we'll change your life. I'm looking right at you, The Active Stick.

Sounds like an ad for All Bran :)

As awesome as you guys are, and you know I do love you Barilkodudes, ain't nothing worse than turning your back on your team. Especially when your team is the Montreal Canadiens. You know, only the best thing in the whole world.

I could never be a turncoat.

I am not doing anything of the sort. I am not routing for the Leafs. I hate the Leafs. It's Habs all the way for me. You can't change me. Go Habs.

How can you cheer for the Leafs when they only have 2 or 3 players that would play on any of the top teams in the NHL. You can be loyal to a team through thick & thin but time has run out again this year.Imagine if this team was in a small U.S. market - NOBODY would go to the games.

No I'm going to root for the Leafs over the Sens.

Yes, that's what I keep telling you. Habs all the way. I will not route for the Leaffs even if someone paid me.
