I've been living in Toronto for the better part of 2 years now, and for all of that time I've been rooming with die hard Leaf's fans. Everywhere I go, I'm bombarded with talk of the Blue and White, and I've actually come to know the team fairly well just to be able to keep up with it all the talk about them.
Am I a fan of hockey? YES
Am I a fan of the Leafs? NO
I AM A SENS FAN
There may be only a few of us in Toronto, but every time I see someone sporting the red, white and black, I always make a point of stopping to chat, because we've got to stay strong in foreign territory. People are always genuinely excited to chat about their favourite team, and it's so refreshing to be able to talk of Erik Karlsson's offensive prowess, and how Zack Smith just doesn't give one ounce of a shit, and have people actually understand who you're talking about.
On that note...
For any Torontonians out there, are any of you assembling to watch the Sens/ Leafs game next Tuesday? it'd be great if we could take over a bar downtown and make our own little pocket of Ottawa fans within Toronto.
Go Sens Go!
