Leafs Nation


New commercial on TV for “Leafs Nation”.  It’s pretty funny.  Most of the people in the commercial are under 50 and are shown explaining to other people their favourite Leaf moment.  All those moments to choose from how could anybody pick their favourite?  There’s that time they almost made it to the playoffs, then there’s that time they almost went to the final round, then there’s all that crap in between.  Besides mindless sheep remembering things that aren’t the Stanley Cup, there’s also the matter of reworking the national flag to include the Maple Leaf logo and colours.  Unacceptable.  The sheer arrogance of claiming our NATIONAL symbol as if this is Canada’s team.  You are not OUR team.  You are Toronto’s team.  We don’t like you.  Put your symbol on Toronto’s municipal flag.  I’ll just assume that’s some symbolic representation of a garbage strike.

  1. It's actually not a new commercial, but yeah - it's pretty funny that they're celebrating "great" goals that aren't associated with anything "great" (like winning The Cup).
