My father was a Leafs fan from the time he started watching hockey until he died. Sadly, for the last 40 some years of his life he watched hockey for the love of the game not because Toronto stood a hope in hell of winning anything. They don't call them the MakeBelieves for nothing.
I'm a Habs fan, always have been. I always felt bad for him and all the other Leafs fans. I never once ever said a bad word about the Leafs within his hearing. After all, fan or not, its just a children's game being played by adults who are millionaires working for billionaires.
