Maybe it’s because I’ve heard one (hundred) too many “Let’s go Leafs” chants at Blue Jays games. Maybe it’s because there does seem to be a genuine interest and excitement in Toronto about the upcoming Blue Jays season. Maybe it’s because I’m also a bitter Leafs fan who gave up hope a long time ago (go Sabres!).
Whatever the reason behind it, the “Let’s go Blue Jays” chant at last night’s Maple Leafs game makes me smile. Perversely, the Leafs losing 7-1 also makes me smile.
